Put Your Boynton Beach, FL, Home On The Road To Recovery With Our Water Removal Services
No matter how efficiently and thoroughly you keep your home, Mother Nature will always have the last word. Sometimes we can't help the emergencies that happen to our living space, but SunCoast Home Solutions does have the ability to perform comprehensive water removal and restore your property to pre-loss condition after you take the appropriate measures to protect yourself and your property.
However, your first concern after a water damage emergency should be for your own safety and the safety of your family. If the water damage has caused the house to become unsafe, call 911 immediately and leave the premises. Two of your most important concerns should be protecting against electrical short circuits and fall accidents. Once everything is safe and secure, call us and we'll take care of the rest.
What Can I Do To Help My Home After A Water Emergency?
If - and only if - everything is safe, there are a few things you can do to get started. You'll start by mopping up all excess water. You may have to blot excess water from carpets with a sponge. Remove all items from the tops of wood furniture, and immediately wipe all of the excess water from those items and the tables. Prop up all wet upholstery. Use aluminum foil or blocks of wood to stand furniture on top of any wet carpeting. If it's summer months, turn on air conditioning. Remove all rugs from any wet carpets, and take care to remove any art items you may have away from the water. If there are any fabrics that have taken water damage, do not leave them in place. Make sure that you immediately hang up all leather items and furs so that they can dry quickly. Ensure you don't leave any magazines, books or other items with coloring on your wet carpet.
How Can I Prepare My Home For Professional Water Removal?
It is very important to call SunCoast Home Solutions as soon as possible after your emergency. Do not try to use your residential vacuum to remove any excess water. Make sure that all electrical devices in your home are turned off and unplugged.
If you see water on the ceiling, do not turn on any of your ceiling fixtures. Make sure that no one goes in any room with a sagging ceiling. Note anywhere you see water in the ceilings or in the walls so that we know exactly where to go first.
Finally, the most important thing - relax. Take a breath. Care for yourself. We know it's a scary situation, but we've got you. You're home will be better than ever before you know it.

Standing water in a home can pose various dangers to both the property and occupants. It can lead to structural damage by weakening foundations, wood, and materials, potentially causing mold growth and decay. Standing water also increases the risk of slips, falls, and electrical hazards, especially if it comes into contact with electrical outlets or appliances. Additionally, stagnant water provides a breeding ground for disease-carrying insects like mosquitoes. Timely removal of standing water and addressing its source, whether from leaks, flooding, or other issues, is crucial to prevent damage and maintain a safe living environment.
