How to Fix Water Damage:

There are some items that are really handy to deal with water damage:

  • dehumidifier
  • fans
  • water extraction vacuum
  • iron or blow drier
  • towels
  • cotton swabs
  • blotting papers
  • goggles
  • safety gloves
  • cloths

Important Issues to Watch Out For:

Water damage can also cause mold problems and these issues often occur simultaneously. This is because mold is a type of fungus that needs water to survive. This means that it usually ends up growing in areas with excess moisture, flooding problems or leakages. It is really important  to remove water damage and mold issues in your home, but first solve the moisture issues by repairing any leaks. If you don’t do this, the mold and water damage will return.

The other thing to consider is the quality of the water that has caused the water damage. If it has bacteria then it may be a problem due to hazardous bacterial growth. This is really important as it is a serious health issue if the water is unsanitary and enters your home. This is especially true for carpets and sometimes it is necessary to dispose of them to remove any risk of human infection.

However, please don’t worry. Many times carpets, walls and ceilings and be recovered and put back to normal as long as the correct treatments are carried out and applied.

I’ve had several cases of water damage to my home over the years due to flooding and had many problems. It’s good to find a useful website like this that deals with these things…i could have saved myself a lot of problems by sorting things straight away. Like you commented, it can be quite stressful when trying to repair water damage- my walls seemed to be the most difficult to remove the water ,and stains from – we had mold growth that wouldn’t go away.

Hi Patrick,

I have 2 questions for you -

How do you control brick and cement structures which have been and are still affected by underground “pools or lakes”. Tiles don’t stick to the floor, plaster on the walls pick up regular damp and plaster on the more affected areas are severly damaged so that it fall from the bricks.

Secondly, having underground water and a house that is earthed we still have shockwaves on all our taps, so if you are in the tub and standing or sitting in water and you dare to touch the tab to rinse yourself you are been shocked. How do we handle this matter.

Looking out for your reply,
Regards,
Franco

Franco, thanks for your comment. The questions you ask seem quite serious. Firstly, if you have tiles that do not stick to the floor or plaster to the walls you may want to contact a housing surveyor. With regards to your second point, underground water can cause big problems with the structure of the house. This again may be one for an expert building surveyor to assess, and possibly an electrical contractor for the shocks on the tab. Sorry I cannot provide further information on your situation but please contact me again if you have any related water damage questions. Thanks again for your comment.

Water damage needs to be addressed quickly for best results. Waiting only causes further water damage and mold.

Alex, you are quite correct. The sooner it’s dealt with the better. Drying the water damaged area ensures that any mold growth is reduced. De-humidifiers are great for this as they reduces the level of humidity in the air. Thanks for your comment.
