Flooded Basement Restoration
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 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.
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.
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.
Ceiling, Carpet and Drywall Water Damage Restoration
These are other areas that need close attention. Water damaged floor poses several challenges and needs to be rectified promptly. The first thing is to ensure it is cordoned off and then cleaned. After this repairs can commence immediately.
The Drywall ceiling damage can also be rectified. It is advisable to cut out the affected area and then replace it with new dry. Another way is to install a drywall access panel.
