Water damage can come from many sources, including natural disaster, sewage backup, firefighting efforts, overflowing toilets and bathtubs, and leaking appliances and plumbing. We use a multi-step water mitigation approach that begins with an initial inspection and water extraction. From there, your home is dried and dehumidified to prevent mold and mildew. Your home is cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized before restoration takes place. Restoration involves returning your home to its pre-damaged condition through drywall repairs, new flooring installing, and more.
As one of the leading water restoration companies in the area, we have experience with water damage restoration following all types of scenarios with the expertise and equipment necessary to restore your home. Because fast water damage cleanup is crucial, we respond quickly and work to restore your home in a matter of days.
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 & Smoke Damage Restoration
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 & 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 Carpet Water Restoration
The aftermath of water damage can leave unsightly marks on your ceiling, hardwood floor, carpet, and drywalls. Water damage mitigation is a service carried out to prevent more damage.
Some of the repair services that characterize damage mitigation include replacement of drywalls. The service is important since a drywall absorbs water rapidly and can grow mold, thus posing some health risks. We may also need to replace water damaged ceilings and water damaged floors.
Our restoration services help restore your building to its normal condition, improve its aesthetics, and prevent the attack of diseases that result from mold and contamination. A reliable restoration service provider like us have the necessary equipment to handle various situations. We also have the right skills to not only identify and fix a problem but also prevent its future occurrence.
