If you have a burst pipe in Gresham, you need to prevent any new water coming into your home as soon as possible. If you have a burst water pipe then you need to turn off the water supply. The supply will usually come in via copper piping and you’ll find the stop cock located underneath the kitchen sink. Some homes you will find the stop cock in different locations. If you check under the kitchen sink and find it’s not there, and then find out where it is and turn it clockwise to close the water supply off. If you want to re-open the water supply, turn the stop cock anticlockwise. Remember the saying, “right to get it tight, left to leave it loose.”
If the dry wall and the floors have been damaged by excess water damage, a professional restoration company in Gresham will need to come around and they will most likely suggest methods of painting the damp spores of mold and damaged areas with a white paint before applying a new floor. This is because the floor may have been damaged by water and it needs to be cleaned up and dried out thoroughly before new flooring is put down.
Next, you’ll need fresh air running around the home, open windows, turn on fans and get the air to circulate and replace the moisture-laden air that’s in the rooms that suffered damaged. Then get yourself a dehumidifier working in every room if possible. It may take several days but the humidity levels need to come way down.
