Water Damage Restoration
The main risk of water damage is that the moisture can remain in spots you can’t see, such as within walls or floors. Water can weaken the structural integrity of wood-framed houses, destroy drywall, and lead to the growth of mold. While clothes and furniture may be saved with quick action and thorough drying, water damage cleanup is necessary for the home. Call us now at 1-888-443-3110.
It’s a good idea to take stock of your possessions for insurance reasons, but always use caution when returning to the home. Never enter a water-damaged home without ensuring that the power is turned off. Flooding may also release toxic chemicals, and after prolonged periods, the presence of algae and wildlife, including snakes. It’s always a good precaution to wear thick rubber boots, rubber gloves, goggles, and an air respirator if possible.
Water damage cleanup may involve removal of porous materials like wood, drywall, and carpets. The home will also have to be checked for mold and structural damage. Often the home will have to be dried with commercial drying fans and scrubbed with detergents before repairs can even begin.
Flooded Basement Services
Unfortunately, basements are at a higher risk of flooding than any other area of your home. A flooded basement is often caused by insufficient drainage around the walls, a failed sump pump, heavy rain, or a combination of these issues when water follows the path of least resistance through the basement walls.
If you have discovered water in the basement, fast action is necessary for effective flooded basement restoration. If the water is allowed to sit for even two days, it will become a breeding ground for mold and cause further damage to your home. We will respond quickly to remove the water and dehumidify your basement to remove moisture and dry out the space. Once all water and moisture are removed, flood damage cleanup will involve cleaning, sanitizing, and treating the basement with an antimicrobial and antifungal product to prevent mold.
While a basement flood is one of the worst disasters you can ever face as a homeowner, we will be there every step of the way to restore your home as quickly and efficiently as possible. Contact us right away for fast response time and the expertise and equipment necessary for basement flood cleanup to help you recover and move on with your life.
Mold Removal and Remediation
Mold can quickly spread throughout any home in as little as 48 hours whenever a water source, such as a plumbing or roof leak, is introduced. Mold is a serious issue and can damage your health. Unfortunately, microscopic mold spores are just about everywhere, making it next to impossible to remove every single spore from your home. However, when properly treated by a professional mold removal and remediation company, you can once again begin enjoying the air quality you deserve.
Mold remediation involves identifying and addressing mold problems in a home, business, or any other structure. Almost always performed by a professional mold restoration company like us, specializing in the potentially harmful job of mold cleanup and removal, mold remediation involves a number of essential steps.
A licensed contractor will first identify the source of the problem and all moldy areas. Then, a remediation plan will be developed, with containment of the infected area being a top priority. HEPA filters are used to remove harmful mold spores from the air and any porous materials like damaged sheetrock are removed. The rest of the area is thoroughly dried before the reconstruction process can begin. Exposure to mold can cause serious health issues. Whether you have mold in basement from a flood, mold in the attic from a leaky roof, or anywhere else in your home, protect your health and call a mold removal specialist today.
Restoration after a fire can begin when your fire department tells you it’s safe to return. The first thing you should do is open windows and possibly turn on a fan to clear away any lingering smoke. Smoke is acidic as well as carcinogenic, and can also damage and stain surfaces. It can also contain harmful fumes from other substances destroyed by fire. At times smoke, and the water used to extinguish the fire, can do more damage than the actual flames. Proper fire damage restoration involves treatment for all three.
Don’t eat food that’s been exposed to heavy smoke. You may want to unplug appliances, remove valuables, and leave the home if smoke damage is extensive. Take stock of your belongings and take photos of the damages as soon as it’s safe. Unless the damage is slight, leave the cleanup to trained fire cleanup specialists. Rebuilding isn’t possible until proper restoration is done.
Sewage cleanup needs to be done immediately due to the nature of the mess. It can lead to diseases and a hazardous environment to those around the place.
The process of cleaning up a sewer system includes:
- Putting the solid waste into plastic bags and disposing of them well
- Soaking up the liquid parts into plastic bags
- Dispose of all the carpets and rugs
- Mop the area clean
You should call in a specialists like us to do the rest of the work. Keep yourself safe from contamination during the process
Ceiling, Carpet and Drywall Water Damage Restoration
Drywall water damage happens quickly, and when not promptly treated and dried, it begins deteriorating and needs immediate replacing. In addition to absorbing water and swelling up, a primary concern with drywall water damage is the growth of mildew and mold, both of which are associated with causing several health issues.
In addition to drywall water damage, which generally occurs in a structure’s walls or ceiling as a result of a leaking roof or pipe, carpet water damage can be extremely frustrating as well. Since many carpet manufacturers void any warranties when water damage is visible on the latex backing, professional steam cleaning and ozonation is almost always needed. A water damage hardwood floor will require professional restoration as well. The good news is, whether you have a water damaged ceiling or a water damage floor, a quality contractor will be able to restore or replace both and have your home looking like new.
