Water Damage Mitigation & Restoration
The rainy season is known for bringing life into our surroundings. In some parts of the country, however, the rain is known for bringing havoc and damage. This is the set of the package that Mother Nature has to offer to us. People living in flood-prone areas know all too well the effects of flooding.
Whenever there is flooding or excess rainfall, water may get to your house denying you and your beloved ones a chance to enjoy the comfort of your home. Flood water is known for damaging anything that gets in its way. Floods are brought about by excess rainfall in areas with inadequate drainage systems. Sometimes floods are adamant and exceed the flooding barriers that people or authorities put to prevent damage.

It is important to get water damage cleanup services as soon possible to prevent further damage.

Flooded Basement Restoration and Basement Flooding Repair
Many homeowners have gone down the basement stairs after a heavy rain only to find several inches of water in their basement. Draining water in the surrounding soil can easily find its way through cracks in the basement walls. Insufficient drainage on the property or faulty sump pumps in combination with excessive rainfall can lead to unexpected basement water damage.
A flooded basement must be immediately pumped out. If the sump pump isn’t adequate, professional restoration teams can bring their own pumps. Nothing can be done until the water is removed. In the meantime, it’s important to stay out of the basement to avoid safety risks such as electric shock. Any chemicals or cleaners can also seep into the water to create health risks.
Any water damaged belongings, particularly appliances, should be removed before professional drying takes place. Water damage restoration can then begin with a thorough inspection to spot any growth of mold and mildew, trapped pockets of moisture, or damage to the walls or foundation which could undermine the strength of the upper floors.
Mold removal and remediation are all about identifying and taking appropriate action to keep mold away from your buildings. The process of mold remediation involves preventing its spread in affected areas by removing the visible mold. We also boost this process by eliminating any moisture sources around the walls of houses. Mold in a basement is common because these places are usually wet.
Mold is known to have among other effects, irritants that can pose a health hazard around homes. It is important to contact a mold restoration company like us right away to aid in a mold clean-up exercise, especially if you own large buildings.
The mold remediation process is very important since it requires a reconstruction of the affected areas. The remediation process involves:
- Assessment of the mold situation – Here the cause of the problem is established.
- Containment – This is the immediate process after the affected areas are identified. The affected area is cordoned off to avoid having them spread to other areas.
- Filtration – The air of the mold spores will be cleaned carefully because mold is not safe for health.
- Removal and Drying- After the previous processes, the mold is removed from the affected areas carefully. The areas that have been cleaned must be equally dried since any more moisture is a breeding ground for more mold.
- Repair – The affected areas are supposed to be repaired after the mold materials are removed.
The health risks of dealing with mold must be observed since it has irritating effects. A good number of types of molds are known to create health problems.
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 & Restoration
When sewage backs up, this is considered to be an emergency situation and should be dealt with immediately. Sewers back up for a variety of reasons like tree roots blocking them, water in the basement or blockage in the service pipe between the home and city main. Cleaning them out provides an entry into the home drain system so clogs can be removed or pipes inspected.
Drywall, Ceiling, and Floor Water Damage Restoration
These are other areas that need close attention. Water damaged floor poses several challenges and needs to be rectified promptly. The first thing is to ensure it is cordoned off and then cleaned. After this repairs can commence immediately.
The Drywall ceiling damage can also be rectified. It is advisable to cut out the affected area and then replace it with new dry. Another way is to install a drywall access panel.
