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
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.
Microscopic mold exists naturally virtually everywhere. For the most places, it remains minimal. Mold is however catalyzed by water. Water leakage or flooding causes mold to spread fast and become a nuisance to the occupants of the house. It is also known for damaging certain materials used in house construction.
It is important to detect mold fast especially after a recent leakage or flooding. Mold removal experts focus on the removal of mold and bringing it back to the normal area levels of mold. Mold is known for hosting other substances that may irritate the occupant of a mold infested house because these substances release substances that may be allergic to some humans. The stench is also awful and may irritate the occupant.
As soon as mold is detected or flooding occurs, you are advised to get in touch with mold extermination experts who will begin the mold remediation and restoration process. Mold thrives in moist conditions. After all the mold is removed, and all the contents cleaned, occupants are advised to keep the air dry and filter incoming air. Restoration is also needed to ensure that the damage that was done to the floors, roofs or other structures is repaired. Restorations may range from small repairs such as painting to major overhauls such as the reconstruction of a structure.
Fire Damage Repair
Fire is one of the most destructive forces to damage your home. Along with damage from fire, you are likely dealing with damage from smoke, soot, and water from firefighting efforts. Smoke can quickly permeate fabrics, building material, and carpet while the oily soot can leave permanent stains. The residue left behind from a fire is a biohazard that can etch glass, tarnish metal, and discolor appliances within hours. When allowed to sit, smoke and ash will cause corrosion and permanent damage while the water will lead to mold and bacterial growth.
While a fire can be very destructive, we are standing by with superior fire damage restoration to clean up smoke, soot, and water damage before the residue can spread and cause further damage. Our fire and soot damage technicians will remove contaminants and water and use commercial-grade chemicals to permanently remove the smoke aroma. Once the fire and soot residue is removed, water will be removed from your home to dry it out before restoration can take place.
Fast action is essential when it comes to fire. Contact us today for superior fire damage restoration to restore your home and remove health hazards and unpleasant aromas.
Cleanup Sewage and Restoration
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.
