Flooded Basement Restoration
Basement flooding is usually certain in cases of heavy floods. This is because water usually follows places with least resistance. This is how water gets its way into your basement! Water in the basement is one of the situations many would not wish to encounter.
The causes of a flooded basement include an insufficient drainage line along the basement of a building, storms, or even faulty water pipes. After such an unfortunate incident, there is a need to move with speed and conduct a flood damage cleanup at the basement.
To clean up the basement, you need to first remove the water. This may not be easy as the basement flood cleanup is rather hectic. First, we select the equipment with consideration of whether it is a minor or a major flood. The next step is to start removing the water, by focusing on areas that are more likely to get damaged fast. We also start with the highest area since it has the least pool of water to make the workload easy. The third step is to dry the affected area. If there are windows, there is need to keep them open to allow moisture to escape the building. We use fans to make the process faster.
Mold Removal & Remediation
Mold is not just an ugly nuisance, but can be a serious health risk. Some types of mold are quite toxic. All mold produces airborne spores. It usually begins as black spots. These can show up on almost any surface, and continues to grow if untreated. Mold cleanup is especially important inside walls or ceilings where it can continue to spread, increasing health risks, creating foul odors, and rotting away damp wood.
Mold is particularly especially dangerous to anyone with severe allergies or asthma. Almost any home can get mold even under ordinary conditions. All it takes is a little pocket of moisture such as a dripping pipe along with some mold spores from outdoors. It can survive in temperatures as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Ordinary mildew is usually on the surface only and can usually be killed and cleaned up with special cleaners or ordinary bleach.
If you suspect you have a mold problem, it’s important to call in trained inspectors as soon as possible. They’ll be able to identify infected areas and being mold remediation. They may recommend cleaning or replacement of building materials. If the mold is severe, local authorities may decide the property is not suitable for living until the mold removal is complete.
The fire damage restoration process can begin as soon as authorities give the all-clear that the property is safe to return to. Heat, smoke and water damage are all a result. This damage can also lead to water damage due to the water used to put out the fire.
Fires can be caused by things like electrical issues, fireplaces, candles or smoking. A professional fire restoration team like ours would come in and assess the situation and begin restoring things back to the way they were. In 2015 alone, there were 365,500 fires with 2650 deaths and 11,075 injuries reported.
Sewage Cleanup 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.
Ceiling, Carpet and Drywall Water Damage Restoration
Drywall, ceiling and carpet water restoration can be needed for a variety of reasons such as a flood, a fire or a major storm. 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.

Robert P: My fiancé and I had overnight flooding from Andrea on June 7th to June 8th. Called in the middle of the night and they responded immediately. The job was done efficiently, effectively, and with the utmost courtesy. We hope to not have any more flooding, but if we do, Ace will be the first company we call!
Hotrod W: Great guys, great work. They even helped to make sure my insurance paid for everything they should have. This was my first water damage claim and even though the house was in chaos for a few days, everything got dried out and replaced… Even got new carpet for the downstairs. Very happy with the work they did.
Drew B: We have had many emergency floods at rentals properties we manage and they were just a phone call away and responded in more than a timely matter. Because the water extraction and flooring are right there together, we already had the flooring picked out and it was also installed immediately after the water was extracted.
Kim S: The technician explained all details of the job to me thoroughly. I annoyingly had a million questions and he answered them without the notion that my OCD was taking over the conversation. He and the team were nothing but great! Highly recommended and I’ll be referring them to anyone I know that needs services of this kind.
Tony D: I felt they really had my best interest at heart both with the water damage and the insurance claim. They went out of their way to make sure I understood the process and got everything from my insurance carrier. Hopefully I won’t have water damage again, but I would call these guys back right away, and would recommend them to everyone
Brian A: The technician re-constructed our water damaged house (an entire first floor) from buckled hardwood, spongey carpets and wet drywall back to where it was pre-damage. They are a company that dots their i’s and crosses their t’s, and stays on top of all the subspecialties required for these projects to be successful. Would highly recommend them!
