Water Damage Restoration
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 Services
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 Removal & Remediation
Mold removal and remediation are all about identifying and taking appropriate action to keep mold away from your buildings. The process of mold remediation involves preventing its spread in affected areas by removing the visible mold. We also boost this process by eliminating any moisture sources around the walls of houses. Mold in a basement is common because these places are usually wet.
Mold is known to have among other effects, irritants that can pose a health hazard around homes. It is important to contact a mold restoration company like us right away to aid in a mold clean-up exercise, especially if you own large buildings.
The mold remediation process is very important since it requires a reconstruction of the affected areas. The remediation process involves:
- Assessment of the mold situation – Here the cause of the problem is established.
- Containment – This is the immediate process after the affected areas are identified. The affected area is cordoned off to avoid having them spread to other areas.
- Filtration – The air of the mold spores will be cleaned carefully because mold is not safe for health.
- Removal and Drying- After the previous processes, the mold is removed from the affected areas carefully. The areas that have been cleaned must be equally dried since any more moisture is a breeding ground for more mold.
- Repair – The affected areas are supposed to be repaired after the mold materials are removed.
The health risks of dealing with mold must be observed since it has irritating effects. A good number of types of molds are known to create health problems.
Fire is one of the most destructive forces to damage your home. Along with damage from fire, you are likely dealing with damage from smoke, soot, and water from firefighting efforts. Smoke can quickly permeate fabrics, building material, and carpet while the oily soot can leave permanent stains. The residue left behind from a fire is a biohazard that can etch glass, tarnish metal, and discolor appliances within hours. When allowed to sit, smoke and ash will cause corrosion and permanent damage while the water will lead to mold and bacterial growth.
While a fire can be very destructive, we are standing by with superior fire damage restoration to clean up smoke, soot, and water damage before the residue can spread and cause further damage. Our fire and soot damage technicians will remove contaminants and water and use commercial-grade chemicals to permanently remove the smoke aroma. Once the fire and soot residue is removed, water will be removed from your home to dry it out before restoration can take place.
Fast action is essential when it comes to fire. Contact us today for superior fire damage restoration to restore your home and remove health hazards and unpleasant aromas.
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.

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.
