Flooded Basement Restoration
Many homeowners have gone down the basement stairs after a heavy rain only to find several inches of water in their basement. Draining water in the surrounding soil can easily find its way through cracks in the basement walls. Insufficient drainage on the property or faulty sump pumps in combination with excessive rainfall can lead to unexpected basement water damage.
A flooded basement must be immediately pumped out. If the sump pump isn’t adequate, professional restoration teams can bring their own pumps. Nothing can be done until the water is removed. In the meantime, it’s important to stay out of the basement to avoid safety risks such as electric shock. Any chemicals or cleaners can also seep into the water to create health risks.
Any water damaged belongings, particularly appliances, should be removed before professional drying takes place. Water damage restoration can then begin with a thorough inspection to spot any growth of mold and mildew, trapped pockets of moisture, or damage to the walls or foundation which could undermine the strength of the upper floors.
Mold doesn’t need much to make your home its own: any damp, cool area will do. Mold can spread throughout your home after only 48 hours following the introduction of water damage from a hidden plumbing leak, roof leak, overflowed toilet, or leaking water heater.
As a leading mold restoration company, we use a tailored approach for every mold remediation project. We will first conduct a careful assessment of your home to look for signs of mold and identify any water sources. The cause of the mold will need to be addressed before we use several effective mold removal techniques like barriers and negative air pressure to keep mold spores from spreading.
We remove all mold-infested materials with air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums. Once the contamination is removed, the area will be treated with antifungal and antimicrobial products to kill remaining mold spores and prevent new growth. We will restore items that can be saved and sanitize your home to remove residual odors.
Fire Damage Restoration
Fire accidents are among the worst nightmares that can befall a home. After suffering a fire accident, it is important to restore your house to its original state. Some of the causes of fire include; cooking fire, faulty electric wires, smoking, home heating fires and unattended candles.
To restore you home after a fire incident you need to remove smoke stains, odor from the smoke and soot on the walls and other home assortments. Your property needs to be assessed, then restoration done by eliminating the odor and smoke, repainting, and intensive cleaning.
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.
Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet Water Damage
Drywall water damage happens quickly, and when not promptly treated and dried, it begins deteriorating and needs immediate replacing. In addition to absorbing water and swelling up, a primary concern with drywall water damage is the growth of mildew and mold, both of which are associated with causing several health issues.
In addition to drywall water damage, which generally occurs in a structure’s walls or ceiling as a result of a leaking roof or pipe, carpet water damage can be extremely frustrating as well. Since many carpet manufacturers void any warranties when water damage is visible on the latex backing, professional steam cleaning and ozonation is almost always needed. A water damage hardwood floor will require professional restoration as well. The good news is, whether you have a water damaged ceiling or a water damage floor, a quality contractor will be able to restore or replace both and have your home looking like new.
