Water damage mitigation is the process by which you try to reduce or even prevent the amount of damage caused by floodwater in your residence. By observing water mitigation, one can be able to stop any additional damage that is likely to be caused by the leakage. Major causes of water damage include plumbing technicalities, heavy rainfall or a storm, leaking roofs and burst pipes. After this unfortunate occurrence, water damage repair is required. You can call us to help you with the water removal. Call: 1-888-443-3110

Flooded Basement Restoration
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.
The mold removal and remediation service that we offer is designed to destroy spores that thrive inside and outside a home. According to experts, there are thousands of mold species, so certain procedures must be implemented in order to eliminate specific mold in basement seams. The process of tackling a mold cleanup project without a professional isn’t a smart strategy because typical household solutions can’t successfully eliminate all mold.
By working with the technicians at our mold restoration company, you’ll get professional results since we always thoroughly examine and test areas where mold typically grows. Mold spores need moisture, oxygen, and food to grow, which is why our technicians use commercial-grade tools to inspect pipes that may have a leak in environments that are between 40 to 100 degrees.
If you think that mold is affecting your health, we can help. During a situation that involves mold, residents in a home will begin to experience typical symptoms, such as:
- Breathing issues
The big benefit is that mold is easy to detect because it generates dark spots on wall paneling and stains on flooring and ceilings. Mold also emits a strong smell that’s musty into a large or small space.
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
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 Floor Water Damage Restoration
While most materials can be damaged by water, drywall is especially susceptible to water. A water damaged ceiling should be repaired immediately as the drywall will absorb water quickly before buckling and giving way. We have extensive experience repairing water damaged drywall and ceilings in addition to water damaged hardwood floors and carpet water damage.
If your home has suffered water damage, our team of experts will work quickly to remove water and moisture from the area before cleaning and disinfecting. Damaged drywall will be replaced and carpet will most likely need to be replaced as well. Depending on the extent of the damage and how quickly it is treated, it may be possible to save hardwood flooring. Don’t delay; contact us today for effective water damage mitigation.
