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.
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 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 & 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.
A sewer that’s been backed up due to clogged or damaged drains is one of the most unpleasant situations you’ll face in the home. The damage could be in the home plumbing, in buried septic tanks, or the pipes leading to the city sewer. It will take trained and licensed plumbers to ascertain the cause and fix the problem.
Clean up can begin as soon as the water has drained or been pumped away. The solid waste must be cleaned up, the area dried with circulating fans, and surfaces scrubbed and disinfected. You’ll likely have to throw out any carpets or rugs. Sewage cleanup can be a big and nasty job that you should leave to professionals. Trained crews like ours can get things cleaned up, deodorized, and check for any water damage to the surrounding walls and floor in case hidden damage calls for repairs.
Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet Water Damage
When drywall is damaged by water, you’ll see brown stains, buckling, or blistering. The same is true of water damage to ceilings, including wood or tile. This may come from a leaky roof, requiring roof repairs as well as water mitigation. Replacing drywall is usually necessary. Painted surfaces may hide water stains. You may want professionals to check for mold and hidden moisture before repairs begin.
Carpet must usually be removed and replaced, including the carpet pad. Inspection of the subfloor should also be done. Call in a professional to assess the damage. Sometimes carpet can be salvaged with special cleaners and equipment, or only damaged areas replaced.
Calling a professional can reduce the time and trouble it takes to take stock of damage, initiate repairs, and get your life back to normal. Always document the damage and check with your insurance agent to see what’s covered. But above all, think safety first during and after home disasters.
