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 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 Restoration
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 & Restoration
A sewer that’s been backed up due to clogged or damaged drains is one of the most unpleasant situations you’ll face in the home. The damage could be in the home plumbing, in buried septic tanks, or the pipes leading to the city sewer. It will take trained and licensed plumbers to ascertain the cause and fix the problem.
Clean up can begin as soon as the water has drained or been pumped away. The solid waste must be cleaned up, the area dried with circulating fans, and surfaces scrubbed and disinfected. You’ll likely have to throw out any carpets or rugs. Sewage cleanup can be a big and nasty job that you should leave to professionals. Trained crews like ours can get things cleaned up, deodorized, and check for any water damage to the surrounding walls and floor in case hidden damage calls for repairs.
Drywall, Ceiling, and Floor Water Damage Restoration
Safety is a top priority throughout drywall, ceiling, and flooring restoration jobs. We never delay during these projects because any lingering water can create an environment that attracts spores. Throughout drywall water damage projects, we grab every soggy particle to increase safety. We also thoroughly examine water damaged ceilings because mold usually grows in this area. Since mold and other elements that can contaminate a home can rest underneath carpeting and floorboards, we use special equipment during carpet water damage and water damage hardwood floor projects.
