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.
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 can quickly take root in your home following the introduction of any water source, whether it’s an overflowed toilet, a roof leak, failed basement waterproofing, or a hidden plumbing leak. Mold can spread throughout your home in just 48 hours and pose a number of health risks in addition to damaging your home.
We approach every mold remediation project with a tailored strategy that begins with an inspection and mold removal assessment. We will check for visible signs of mold and water sources, including leaks behind walls and damp subflooring. Several methods can be used for effective mold remediation such as negative air pressure and barriers to prevent mold spores from spreading during the mold cleanup process.
All mold and mold-infested materials will be removed carefully and safely with the use of HEPA vacuums and air scrubbers. Antimicrobial and antifungal treatments will be used to kill mold and prevent new mold from growing after contaminated materials are removed. Items that can be restored will be cleaned and sanitized to remove odors. Once mold remediation is complete, restoration will take place to restore your home fully.
Fire and smoke damage can be devastating, not only in terms of the actual fire but also the smoke and the water damage after firefighting efforts are complete. The odor of smoke can permeate belongings and building materials while oily soot can easily stain textiles. As with water damage, prompt action is necessary for effective fire damage restoration.
The residue remaining after a fire is a biohazard and may cause serious health problems if it is not cleaned professionally and effectively. In just hours, smoke and soot can discolor appliances, cause etching on glass, and tarnish metal. If they are left to sit for even a few days, smoke and ash can continue to cause corrosion and damage.
We are ready 24/7 to respond with superior fire, soot, and smoke damage restoration that involves cleaning debris and residue before it can spread, neutralizing odors, and using commercial-grade chemicals that break up the molecules in smoke to permanently remove the odors in your home. To protect against further damage and secure your home, any missing or damaged walls, windows, and roofs will be tarped and boarded during this process. Fire and soot damage also frequently involves water removal and drying immediately afterward.
If your home has suffered fire damage, contact us right away for fast response and superior results to restore your home and help you move on with your life.
Cleanup Sewage and Restoration
When sewage water and debris backs up into your home, our sewage cleanup services can be very beneficial. Our crews tackle sewage-related projects by carefully removing all sewage and water from the premises. Then, we lift and haul away any flooring pieces, carpets, or furnishings that are contaminated.
Drywall, Ceiling, and Floor Water Damage Restoration
Drywall water damage happens quickly, and when not promptly treated and dried, it begins deteriorating and needs immediate replacing. In addition to absorbing water and swelling up, a primary concern with drywall water damage is the growth of mildew and mold, both of which are associated with causing several health issues.
In addition to drywall water damage, which generally occurs in a structure’s walls or ceiling as a result of a leaking roof or pipe, carpet water damage can be extremely frustrating as well. Since many carpet manufacturers void any warranties when water damage is visible on the latex backing, professional steam cleaning and ozonation is almost always needed. A water damage hardwood floor will require professional restoration as well. The good news is, whether you have a water damaged ceiling or a water damage floor, a quality contractor will be able to restore or replace both and have your home looking like new.
