Flooded Basement Restoration
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 remediation is a process used to remove and cleanup mold from an indoor environment. During the process, the mold restoration company will perform an assessment, contain the mold and provide air filtration. Finally, they remove the mold, clean the contents and restore everything to new.
It is important to perform mold removal as soon as possible after an incident because mold spores thrive on moisture. Allergens and irritants are a result and can cause serious health issues and even death. Mold in the basement is a serious matter that affects all members of the family.
Mold is caused by things like flooding, leaky pipes or roof, condensation and poor ventilation. 93 percent of chronic sinus infections are because of mold, and there has been a 300 percent increase in asthma in the past 20 years. This is why early mold cleanup is vital for you and your family.
Fire 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.
Sewage cleanup needs to be done immediately due to the nature of the mess. It can lead to diseases and a hazardous environment to those around the place.
The process of cleaning up a sewer system includes:
- Putting the solid waste into plastic bags and disposing of them well
- Soaking up the liquid parts into plastic bags
- Dispose of all the carpets and rugs
- Mop the area clean
You should call in a specialists like us to do the rest of the work. Keep yourself safe from contamination during the process
Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet Water Damage Restoration
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.
