Flooded Basement Services
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.
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
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 and 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 Carpet Water Restoration
When drywall is damaged by water, you’ll see brown stains, buckling, or blistering. The same is true of water damage to ceilings, including wood or tile. This may come from a leaky roof, requiring roof repairs as well as water mitigation. Replacing drywall is usually necessary. Painted surfaces may hide water stains. You may want professionals to check for mold and hidden moisture before repairs begin.
Carpet must usually be removed and replaced, including the carpet pad. Inspection of the subfloor should also be done. Call in a professional to assess the damage. Sometimes carpet can be salvaged with special cleaners and equipment, or only damaged areas replaced.
Calling a professional can reduce the time and trouble it takes to take stock of damage, initiate repairs, and get your life back to normal. Always document the damage and check with your insurance agent to see what’s covered. But above all, think safety first during and after home disasters.
