Water Damage Restoration

water damage caused by flood in Merritt, IL

From burst pipes and leaky faucets to flooding caused from damaging storms, water damage is a potentially destructive problem and must be addressed right away. If plumbing issues and water damage are not taken care of immediately, electrical hazards, the growth of mold spores, and expensive structural damage may ensue. When your plumbing fails or a storm floods your home with water and causes an emergency water damage issue, water damage mitigation and restoration may be needed. If you wait too long to begin the mitigation process, soaked carpets, ruined furniture, and water damage cleanup could be the least of your worries. Call us now at 1-888-443-3110.

Water damage mitigation is the process of preventing or reducing the damage to your home in the event of a flood or serious leak. While some handy homeowners choose to tackle the mitigation and restoration process on their own, trained water damage repair professionals like us are needed to ensure a home is structurally sound and free of mold and harmful bacteria. Therefore, when you spot water damage in your home, you should remain calm and contact us right away.

Depending on the extent of the damage and the amount of water mitigation needed, you may also need to turn off the water main, turn the electrical breakers off in all of the damaged areas, protect the feet of your furniture, and remove any items that may stain wet carpet. Our water damage restoration specialist will take care of the rest.

Flooded Basement Restoration

The basement is one of the places in your interior space that is vulnerable to flooding and water damage. This is because water flows smoothly from high grounds to low grounds. In most cases, basement flooding results during the heavy rain seasons. The storm water overcomes the basement’s water-proofing material and forces its way through cracks in the cellar wall. In other cases, basement flooding occurs due to badly sloped lawns. A lawn should slope away from your building, rather than towards the house. A failed plumbing system may also contribute to basement flooding.

Resolving a basement flooding problem is a difficult task to do by yourself. For this reason, you need a water restoration company like us to supervise, remove the water, and clean up the mess. Another reason you should hire a professional service provider like us is that the basement is hard to dry, hence providing a good set up for mold growth. We have necessary equipment that will remove water before it spoils the floor, walls and other valuables within your home. We have dehumidifiers that will remove moisture and curb mold from growing. A water restoration company like us will also help you clean and sanitize the flooded basement walls and floors to prevent accumulation of moisture.

Mold

Mold doesn’t need much to make your home its own: any damp, cool area will do. Mold can spread throughout your home after only 48 hours following the introduction of water damage from a hidden plumbing leak, roof leak, overflowed toilet, or leaking water heater.

As a leading mold restoration company, we use a tailored approach for every mold remediation project. We will first conduct a careful assessment of your home to look for signs of mold and identify any water sources. The cause of the mold will need to be addressed before we use several effective mold removal techniques like barriers and negative air pressure to keep mold spores from spreading.

We remove all mold-infested materials with air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums. Once the contamination is removed, the area will be treated with antifungal and antimicrobial products to kill remaining mold spores and prevent new growth. We will restore items that can be saved and sanitize your home to remove residual odors.

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

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.

Ceiling, Carpet and Drywall Water Damage Restoration

These are other areas that need close attention. Water damaged floor poses several challenges and needs to be rectified promptly. The first thing is to ensure it is cordoned off and then cleaned. After this repairs can commence immediately.

The Drywall ceiling damage can also be rectified. It is advisable to cut out the affected area and then replace it with new dry. Another way is to install a drywall access panel.
