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.
The mold removal and remediation service that we offer is designed to destroy spores that thrive inside and outside a home. According to experts, there are thousands of mold species, so certain procedures must be implemented in order to eliminate specific mold in basement seams. The process of tackling a mold cleanup project without a professional isn’t a smart strategy because typical household solutions can’t successfully eliminate all mold.
By working with the technicians at our mold restoration company, you’ll get professional results since we always thoroughly examine and test areas where mold typically grows. Mold spores need moisture, oxygen, and food to grow, which is why our technicians use commercial-grade tools to inspect pipes that may have a leak in environments that are between 40 to 100 degrees.
If you think that mold is affecting your health, we can help. During a situation that involves mold, residents in a home will begin to experience typical symptoms, such as:
- Breathing issues
The big benefit is that mold is easy to detect because it generates dark spots on wall paneling and stains on flooring and ceilings. Mold also emits a strong smell that’s musty into a large or small space.
The fire damage restoration process can begin as soon as authorities give the all-clear that the property is safe to return to. Heat, smoke and water damage are all a result. This damage can also lead to water damage due to the water used to put out the fire.
Fires can be caused by things like electrical issues, fireplaces, candles or smoking. A professional fire restoration team like ours would come in and assess the situation and begin restoring things back to the way they were. In 2015 alone, there were 365,500 fires with 2650 deaths and 11,075 injuries reported.
Sewage Cleanup & Restoration
Heavy rain and partially blocked sewers can cause sewage backups and a real mess. If sewage water inside your home isn’t taken care of immediately, your flooring, walls, and personal property can become badly damaged. Your home can also become the perfect environment for the growth of bacteria and mold.
Sewer backups and cleanups should be considered a serious problem deserving of emergency treatment. With the possibility of contamination from bacteria, viruses, other harmful microbes capable of causing serious illness, professional sewage cleanup is always a must. Regardless of whether you have a “clean water” problem caused from a broken faucet or supply line or standing “black water” full of dangerous microbes, a sewage cleanup professional like us will develop the appropriate plan of action for your home.
Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet 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.
