Water Mitigation

water damage to large building in Richards, IA

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

The basement is the most affected area of a house whenever there is water damage. Due to being below the earth surface, basements act as the primary place where water flows and fills first. Basements have several uses, some as parking while others are used as home rooms or even for commercial purposes.

Most of the time, basements doors are usually huge to allow easy access and more air and light into the rooms. Basement door or openings act as the essential points where any excess water on the ground passes through. Because of this, many basements are more vulnerable to get water damage than any other parts of the house.

Water in the basement is known to cause fast damage due to lack of sunlight in the basement that can be utilized as a natural water drier. House owners with basements are advised to have emergency flood damage cleanup services to ensure that whenever their basement is flooded repairs and drainage can be done as fast as possible.

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 Restoration

Fire and smoke damage can be devastating, not only in terms of the actual fire but also the smoke and the water damage after firefighting efforts are complete. The odor of smoke can permeate belongings and building materials while oily soot can easily stain textiles. As with water damage, prompt action is necessary for effective fire damage restoration.

The residue remaining after a fire is a biohazard and may cause serious health problems if it is not cleaned professionally and effectively. In just hours, smoke and soot can discolor appliances, cause etching on glass, and tarnish metal. If they are left to sit for even a few days, smoke and ash can continue to cause corrosion and damage.

We are ready 24/7 to respond with superior fire, soot, and smoke damage restoration that involves cleaning debris and residue before it can spread, neutralizing odors, and using commercial-grade chemicals that break up the molecules in smoke to permanently remove the odors in your home. To protect against further damage and secure your home, any missing or damaged walls, windows, and roofs will be tarped and boarded during this process. Fire and soot damage also frequently involves water removal and drying immediately afterward.

If your home has suffered fire damage, contact us right away for fast response and superior results to restore your home and help you move on with your life.

Cleanup Sewage and Restoration

A sewage spill in your home caused by a backed-up septic tank, overflowed toilet, or sewer backup creates a dangerous and hazardous environment. A sewer backup should always be considered an emergency as the water likely contains bacteria, viruses, and microbes that may lead to serious illness. Always leave sewage cleanup to a professional to safely clean contaminants and protect your family.

Sewer water is classified as category 3 or “”black water,”” the most hazardous of all types of water damage. While even clean water can degrade into “”gray”” or “”black”” water if allowed to sit untreated, black water is considered extremely contaminated and it also includes flooding from streams and rivers or standing water that supports microbial growth.

We offer 24-hour emergency sewer cleanup services to quickly restore safety and health to your home. If your have suffered storm damage or a sewer backup, contact us right away for prompt, superior service.

Drywall, Ceiling, and Floor Water Damage Restoration

Causes of damage like floor water damage or ceiling and drywall water damage are also due to things like leaking from broken pipes. Almost 40 percent of Americans have experienced loss from water damage, and water damage is the second most frequently filed claim in the United States.

A restoration company like us will come and assess the damage to your property then begin the process of cleaning and repairing the damage. Sometimes there may be extra measures included like hazard containment and ventilation. Moisture, of course, needs to be taken care of right away to avoid health issues with things like mold.
