Basement Flooding

A basement floods due to water following the easiest path it can which is generally through cracks and holes through basement walls. Gutters not cleaned, faulty sump pumps, or insufficient draining around the wall can all cause a flooded basement. Sewer backup or the slope of the lawn can also cause flooding.

Water in the basement shouldn’t be left for long because mold can be a result. A basement water removal company like us will assess the damage and get started on your flood repair service right away. The basement flood cleanup process consists of assessing the damage, cleaning the water, drying the area thoroughly and setting up future prevention measures.

Many people will experience some type of flooding in their lifetime. Flooding is the number one natural disaster in the United States. You can help prevent basement water damage by venting a hole for water to run out, checking the valve for the backup sewer, keeping you gutters clean and adding downspouts.

Mold Removal and 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.

Sewage Cleanup and Restoration

Sewage leaks cause a great deal of discomfort to residents due to the stench and the potentially harmful aspects of a sewer line. Sewage leaks are easily identified due to their unforgiving smell. They usually happen after natural catastrophes, but sometimes, they are just as a result of poor plumbing or wear and tear of sewerage systems.

Sewage cleanup is important and should be done as fast as possible due to the likely contamination of the environment which eventually may cause infections and diseases such as cholera. Although some sewage leakages such as kitchen water may not be very harmful to the human, It is advised that it should be treated as an emergency as the spread may cause contamination of sources of drinking water.

The black water sewage leak is the most harmful as it can cause death. Blackwater sewage leak contains human waste which contains a lot of toxic matter and hence should be prioritized over the rest. Humans and animals should avoid any contact with leaking sewages. A restoration company like us cleans the mess and also treats the environment around the leak to make sure that all the toxins in the surrounding area have been fully removed.

Reviews From Restoration Customers

David B: The technician and his crew were exactly what we needed after realizing the second floor windows were leaking into the first floor after a major storm. He is a pro and knew exactly how to solve the moisture problem before mold could take hold. He worked with our insurance and made the entire process as smooth as possible. He also took the time to patiently answer all of our questions and always made us feel like a priority.

Bibianne Y: My experience with all the employees, from first contact to the very last one, was friendly, meticulous, professional, thorough and respectful of a family’s needs and feelings in an unexpected and pricey basement water problem. They knew that we were overwhelmed at the scope of demolition work needed to prep for further foundation work and they patiently talked us through all the work they would do for us in the project in the basement.

Nanci M: We had a lot of damage during the 2015 ice dams. The technician really knows his stuff – and can really work with you and the insurance companies (which is always so difficult). He has a great bunch of guys and whenever any of them were at the house working, they did excellent work. It’s been a trying year to get all the repairs done and to get reimbursed by insurance. Thank goodness we had the whole team to work with and help us through the whole process.

Qi Y: My townhouse water meter was broken and 38 gallon water ran into my basement and my neighbors basement. Mold grew in next couple of days after removed damaged carpet from my basement and neighbors basement. The adjuster, went thru inspection with me for both basements and showed me all mold spots and told me how the mold remediation would be conducted. The work started the same day after I hired the company. Mold remediation job took two days and they took away all equipment right after the job done.

Dale B: Solved our problem immediately! When floods happen we all panic. I called as soon as I saw the wet carpet in my finished basement. Water was leaking from my a/c and I had a large area of carpet and padding that needed to be dried and changed before it got any worse. They removed the wet padding, then dried the carpet and replaced the padding. They even had to cut away the carpet from a doorway area and they re-laid the carpet perfectly as if nothing had ever happened. Friendly, efficient workers and great service.

Rob L: I have had many do work for me over the past 16 military years and three houses that I have owned, but this by far is the BEST COMPANY I have ever had do work for me. My AC unit flooded the garage, laundry room and my daughter’s bedroom. These guys were the most professional people I have ever seen. The work was of the highest quality and was done very quickly and professionally. They got rid of the water. They did drywall removal and installation. They also remove carpet and laid tile There was no headaches at all and the pricing was the best in the market.
