Water Damage Mitigation
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.
Flooded basement restoration services will be needed after moisture accesses a space following a rainstorm or snowstorm. Usually, after ice melts and soaks the ground next to a basement, hydro static pressure builds up. This process occurs when the moisture that’s found outside a home exceeds the pressure that’s present in a basement.
The weather patterns greatly influences how frequently flood repair services will be needed in a basement. Whenever major storms impact your area and cause flooding, restoration and flood damage cleanup services should be pursued quickly in order to preserve highly valuable items. As dedicated service technicians, we always work hard throughout basement flood cleanup and basement restoration jobs. You’ll benefit from using our basement water damage services because the strategic restoration techniques that we use help us eliminate all water in basement seams that can lead to a mold infestation.
You’ll need to learn the common signs of a leak so that you can seek our services before mold impacts your basement. If the pipes in your basement are leaking quickly, there will be damp spots in certain areas on the floor. When a pipe leaks slowly, the signs won’t be dramatically noticeable on the floor because the foundation will dry rapidly. However, you can still detect this kind of leak on time and seek basement water removal services by examining the floorboard. If the leak is severe, the water will make the paneling buckle.
Mold exists naturally in every place and is hard to eliminate. Wet and damp conditions provide an excellent setting for the rapid growth of mold. Exposure to mold spores can cause health effects like coughing, sneezing, skin irritation, and other allergic reactions. The health effects are severe to allergic individuals and those whose immunity is compromised.
Mold spreads quickly and hence needs a fast action to save your interior space from mold contamination. Mold removal and remediation require some specialized equipment to seal the infected place such that the mold does not spread to other parts of the building. You also need pressure machines to pump in clean air while pumping out contaminated air. After cleaning and eliminating contaminated air, you will need microbial agents to clean mold stains, make the affected room resistant to water, and ensure the HVAC systems is mold-free. The task is quite challenging and often requires an expert to help manage the mold if its level in your living space is already noticeable.
Therefore, if you suspect that mold has grown in your interior space, it would be wise to call a restoration company like us to help you remediate the mold in your interior space. We will supervise the presence and cause of mold damage in your home. We will also help you remove the indoor air, clean the places and materials that have mold on them, and provide a long-term solution to prevent future mold growth.
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.
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.
Ceiling, Carpet and Drywall Water Damage Restoration
Safety is a top priority throughout drywall, ceiling, and flooring restoration jobs. We never delay during these projects because any lingering water can create an environment that attracts spores. Throughout drywall water damage projects, we grab every soggy particle to increase safety. We also thoroughly examine water damaged ceilings because mold usually grows in this area. Since mold and other elements that can contaminate a home can rest underneath carpeting and floorboards, we use special equipment during carpet water damage and water damage hardwood floor projects.
