Water can cause a great deal if there is enough of it to do so. Contrary to what you might expect there does not have to be a lot of water to cause a tremendous amount of damage. A relatively small amount of water in a small confined space can cause considerably more damage than a great deal of water over a much larger area.
Water can get into all sorts of places that you might not expect it to do, sometimes with dangerous results. Liquid can go through things that air cannot, whilst large amounts of water can burst through things blocking it's path providing there is enough pressure built up. Whatever the exact cause once water is causing damage consider contacting our Tempe, AZ water extraction company and hire us to get it removed.
If the flooding or other types of water damage is too big do not attempt to solve the problem by yourself. The most you should do, and on the proviso that it is safe to do so, is to cut off the water flow. Stopping the in flow of more water assists in it's eventual removal from your property. Moving away from the flooded or water damaged can be essential if the water is near electrical equipment or wiring and you are unable to switch the mains supply off. Get us involved as soon as you can, as the sooner we get to your property the sooner we can start the Tempe, AZ water extraction process.
We use different equipment for water extraction, depending on how much needs to be removed, and how quickly. Pumps are essential for removing most of the excess water. Then we may have to use heaters or extractors depending on what time of year it is. If it is warm enough opening the window can let in enough breeze to dry out the moisture that pumps cannot reach.
