There are many sources of water damage in a home and three categories of damage. While water damage cleanup must happen as soon as possible regardless of the source, some types of damage are more serious and pose a higher health risk. We offer emergency water removal and water damage restoration for all three categories of damage:
- Category 1/Clean: This involves water from a sanitary, clean source like a faucet or toilet tank. If not addressed quickly, it will degrade to category 2.
- Category 2/Grey: This is water that comes from a somewhat contaminated source such as a dishwasher, washing machine, sink drain, or toilet overflow with urine. Grey water may have contaminants that can cause health issues.
- Category 3/Black: This is the most dangerous type of water damage and it may be caused by a sewer backup, stream or river flooding, toilet overflow with feces, or stagnant water that supports bacterial and viral growth.
Our water damage restoration services begin with fast response to assess the problem. All water will be removed from the area before it’s dehumidified to remove moisture and eliminate the possibility of mold and bacterial growth. Next, your home will be cleaned, sanitized, and treated with antifungal and antimicrobial products.
If you have suffered a flood or some type of water damage, fast water mitigation is essential. Contact us today for emergency water damage response to restore your home and help you move on.
Flooded Basement Services
Spring is on its way, and for many homeowners, the end of winter often brings flooded basements in addition to flowers and longer days. When the overnight temperatures begin warming up, frozen ground begins thawing and water makes its way to the lowest point possible. This results in wet basements and hours spent dealing with basement flood cleanup instead of baseball, gardening, or anything else you’d rather be doing.
All too often, homeowners have walked down the steps to their basement only to discover a murky pool of water and basement water damage. Following the path of least resistance, water has a knack for finding holes and cracks in basement walls, leaving pools of water in basement and often the need for professional repairs. Beyond the cracks and holes, which can be found in most basements across the country, basement flooding can typically be attributed to heavy rains, poor drainage around basement walls, or sump pump problems. Sometimes, an unfortunate combination of all of these factors is to blame.
According to Flood Smart, a small 1,000-square foot home with only an inch of water in the basement can result in $10,000 or more in basement flooding repair and restoration costs. Due to the scope of the basement water removal, flood damage cleanup, and possible repairs, you should immediately contact a water or basement restoration specialist if you ever awake one day to find a dirty swimming hole in the basement of your home. With potential causes ranging from faulty plumbing to an improperly sloped foundation, a flooded basement restoration professional will identify and correctly solve the problem in no time at all.
Mold Removal & Remediation
Microscopic mold exists naturally virtually everywhere. For the most places, it remains minimal. Mold is however catalyzed by water. Water leakage or flooding causes mold to spread fast and become a nuisance to the occupants of the house. It is also known for damaging certain materials used in house construction.
It is important to detect mold fast especially after a recent leakage or flooding. Mold removal experts focus on the removal of mold and bringing it back to the normal area levels of mold. Mold is known for hosting other substances that may irritate the occupant of a mold infested house because these substances release substances that may be allergic to some humans. The stench is also awful and may irritate the occupant.
As soon as mold is detected or flooding occurs, you are advised to get in touch with mold extermination experts who will begin the mold remediation and restoration process. Mold thrives in moist conditions. After all the mold is removed, and all the contents cleaned, occupants are advised to keep the air dry and filter incoming air. Restoration is also needed to ensure that the damage that was done to the floors, roofs or other structures is repaired. Restorations may range from small repairs such as painting to major overhauls such as the reconstruction of a structure.
Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration
There’s nothing more traumatizing than experiencing a fire in your home. Unfortunately, according to data from the National Fire Protection Agency, a fire is reported every minute. When the flames appear, the first priority is the safety of you and your loved ones. As soon as the flames clear, however, is when the fire damage restoration begins.
The first 48 hours after a fire are often called the golden hours of fire damage recovery. A quick response to the scene is needed to stabilize the structure. Smoke damage and acidic soot caused when a fire is extinguished enhances the corrosion and deterioration of structures and property. Aside from mitigating damage, the fire restoration process involves water damage restoration, smoke damage cleanup, thermal deodorization, and complete reconstruction.
Sewage Cleanup & Restoration
Heavy rain and partially blocked sewers can cause sewage backups and a real mess. If sewage water inside your home isn’t taken care of immediately, your flooring, walls, and personal property can become badly damaged. Your home can also become the perfect environment for the growth of bacteria and mold.
Sewer backups and cleanups should be considered a serious problem deserving of emergency treatment. With the possibility of contamination from bacteria, viruses, other harmful microbes capable of causing serious illness, professional sewage cleanup is always a must. Regardless of whether you have a “clean water” problem caused from a broken faucet or supply line or standing “black water” full of dangerous microbes, a sewage cleanup professional like us will develop the appropriate plan of action for your home.
Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet Water Damage
When drywall gets wet, it quickly absorbs water, loses its strength, and falls apart. It’s essential to repair damaged drywall, ceilings, and carpet as soon as possible as all three can pose a health hazard by becoming a breeding ground for mold within just two days. Wet drywall can even be a safety hazard as it is at high risk of collapsing or falling apart.
Our professionals will respond quickly to restore water damage. With drywall, this usually involves removing and replacing damaged sections. Sometimes hardwood floors and even carpet may be saved, but it depends on the severity of the water damage and how fast it is treated. Contact us today for fast, superior water damage mitigation to your drywall, ceilings, and flooring.
