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 Restoration and Basement Flooding Repair
Spring is on its way, and for many homeowners, the end of winter often brings flooded basements in addition to flowers and longer days. When the overnight temperatures begin warming up, frozen ground begins thawing and water makes its way to the lowest point possible. This results in wet basements and hours spent dealing with basement flood cleanup instead of baseball, gardening, or anything else you’d rather be doing.
All too often, homeowners have walked down the steps to their basement only to discover a murky pool of water and basement water damage. Following the path of least resistance, water has a knack for finding holes and cracks in basement walls, leaving pools of water in basement and often the need for professional repairs. Beyond the cracks and holes, which can be found in most basements across the country, basement flooding can typically be attributed to heavy rains, poor drainage around basement walls, or sump pump problems. Sometimes, an unfortunate combination of all of these factors is to blame.
According to Flood Smart, a small 1,000-square foot home with only an inch of water in the basement can result in $10,000 or more in basement flooding repair and restoration costs. Due to the scope of the basement water removal, flood damage cleanup, and possible repairs, you should immediately contact a water or basement restoration specialist if you ever awake one day to find a dirty swimming hole in the basement of your home. With potential causes ranging from faulty plumbing to an improperly sloped foundation, a flooded basement restoration professional will identify and correctly solve the problem in no time at all.
Mold Removal & Remediation
Mold is not just an ugly nuisance, but can be a serious health risk. Some types of mold are quite toxic. All mold produces airborne spores. It usually begins as black spots. These can show up on almost any surface, and continues to grow if untreated. Mold cleanup is especially important inside walls or ceilings where it can continue to spread, increasing health risks, creating foul odors, and rotting away damp wood.
Mold is particularly especially dangerous to anyone with severe allergies or asthma. Almost any home can get mold even under ordinary conditions. All it takes is a little pocket of moisture such as a dripping pipe along with some mold spores from outdoors. It can survive in temperatures as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Ordinary mildew is usually on the surface only and can usually be killed and cleaned up with special cleaners or ordinary bleach.
If you suspect you have a mold problem, it’s important to call in trained inspectors as soon as possible. They’ll be able to identify infected areas and being mold remediation. They may recommend cleaning or replacement of building materials. If the mold is severe, local authorities may decide the property is not suitable for living until the mold removal is complete.
Fire Damage Repair
There’s nothing more traumatizing than experiencing a fire in your home. Unfortunately, according to data from the National Fire Protection Agency, a fire is reported every minute. When the flames appear, the first priority is the safety of you and your loved ones. As soon as the flames clear, however, is when the fire damage restoration begins.
The first 48 hours after a fire are often called the golden hours of fire damage recovery. A quick response to the scene is needed to stabilize the structure. Smoke damage and acidic soot caused when a fire is extinguished enhances the corrosion and deterioration of structures and property. Aside from mitigating damage, the fire restoration process involves water damage restoration, smoke damage cleanup, thermal deodorization, and complete reconstruction.
A sewer that’s been backed up due to clogged or damaged drains is one of the most unpleasant situations you’ll face in the home. The damage could be in the home plumbing, in buried septic tanks, or the pipes leading to the city sewer. It will take trained and licensed plumbers to ascertain the cause and fix the problem.
Clean up can begin as soon as the water has drained or been pumped away. The solid waste must be cleaned up, the area dried with circulating fans, and surfaces scrubbed and disinfected. You’ll likely have to throw out any carpets or rugs. Sewage cleanup can be a big and nasty job that you should leave to professionals. Trained crews like ours can get things cleaned up, deodorized, and check for any water damage to the surrounding walls and floor in case hidden damage calls for repairs.
Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet Water Damage
Drywall is very popular in the construction of both commercial and residential houses. Drywall has obviously many advantages of its rival building materials, but it’s an enemy of water. Contact with a lot of water causes the drywall to swell or host pathogens and molds. For this reason, whenever there is water damage, the drywall, ceiling, and carpet may need to be changed.
It is important to enlist the services of a reputable restoration company like us because drywall and ceiling contribute to the overall structural integrity of a water damaged house.
