Flooded Basement Restoration
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 & 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 & Smoke Damage Restoration
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.
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 Carpet Water Damage Restoration
While most materials can be damaged by water, drywall is especially susceptible to water. A water damaged ceiling should be repaired immediately as the drywall will absorb water quickly before buckling and giving way. We have extensive experience repairing water damaged drywall and ceilings in addition to water damaged hardwood floors and carpet water damage.
If your home has suffered water damage, our team of experts will work quickly to remove water and moisture from the area before cleaning and disinfecting. Damaged drywall will be replaced and carpet will most likely need to be replaced as well. Depending on the extent of the damage and how quickly it is treated, it may be possible to save hardwood flooring. Don’t delay; contact us today for effective water damage mitigation.
