Water Damage Mitigation
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 Restoration and Basement Flooding Repair
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.
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.
Fire accidents are among the most devastating experiences due to the ability of fire to spread fast and cause huge damages over a short period. Fires can also consume pillars and other structural important parts of the house. Fire is known for clearing nearly anything that stands in its way.
It is then important to deal carefully with fire damage cleanups and restorations. The services of a competent company and supervisor are needed to ensure that the damage parts are restored properly so that all the hazards are rectified. First, a cleanup is done to remove all the damaged things, any salvages remaining and finally the removal of harmful soot. The house is then restored to ensure that safety and reliability are restored. Owners of fire-prone places are also advised to install fireproof equipment.
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.
Ceiling, Carpet and Drywall Water Damage Restoration
When drywall is damaged by water, you’ll see brown stains, buckling, or blistering. The same is true of water damage to ceilings, including wood or tile. This may come from a leaky roof, requiring roof repairs as well as water mitigation. Replacing drywall is usually necessary. Painted surfaces may hide water stains. You may want professionals to check for mold and hidden moisture before repairs begin.
Carpet must usually be removed and replaced, including the carpet pad. Inspection of the subfloor should also be done. Call in a professional to assess the damage. Sometimes carpet can be salvaged with special cleaners and equipment, or only damaged areas replaced.
Calling a professional can reduce the time and trouble it takes to take stock of damage, initiate repairs, and get your life back to normal. Always document the damage and check with your insurance agent to see what’s covered. But above all, think safety first during and after home disasters.
