Flooded Basement Restoration and Basement Flooding Repair

Once all water and moisture are removed, flood damage cleanup will involve cleaning, sanitizing, and treating the basement with an antimicrobial and antifungal product to prevent mold.

Contact us right away for fast response time and the expertise and equipment necessary for basement flood cleanup to help you recover and move on with your life.
Microscopic mold exists naturally virtually everywhere. For the most places, it remains minimal. Mold is however catalyzed by water. Water leakage or flooding causes mold to spread fast and become a nuisance to the occupants of the house. It is also known for damaging certain materials used in house construction.
It is important to detect mold fast especially after a recent leakage or flooding. Mold removal experts focus on the removal of mold and bringing it back to the normal area levels of mold. Mold is known for hosting other substances that may irritate the occupant of a mold infested house because these substances release substances that may be allergic to some humans. The stench is also awful and may irritate the occupant.
As soon as mold is detected or flooding occurs, you are advised to get in touch with mold extermination experts who will begin the mold remediation and restoration process. Mold thrives in moist conditions. After all the mold is removed, and all the contents cleaned, occupants are advised to keep the air dry and filter incoming air. Restoration is also needed to ensure that the damage that was done to the floors, roofs or other structures is repaired. Restorations may range from small repairs such as painting to major overhauls such as the reconstruction of a structure.
Fire Damage Repair
Restoration after a fire can begin when your fire department tells you it’s safe to return. The first thing you should do is open windows and possibly turn on a fan to clear away any lingering smoke. Smoke is acidic as well as carcinogenic, and can also damage and stain surfaces. It can also contain harmful fumes from other substances destroyed by fire. At times smoke, and the water used to extinguish the fire, can do more damage than the actual flames. Proper fire damage restoration involves treatment for all three.
Don’t eat food that’s been exposed to heavy smoke. You may want to unplug appliances, remove valuables, and leave the home if smoke damage is extensive. Take stock of your belongings and take photos of the damages as soon as it’s safe. Unless the damage is slight, leave the cleanup to trained fire cleanup specialists. Rebuilding isn’t possible until proper restoration is done.
Sewage Cleanup and Restoration
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.
Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet Water 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.

Reviews From Our Customers
Adwin A: A piped burst at my mother’s house and when the fire trucks got there her house had plenty of water that had soaked her carpets and ran down through the ceiling to the basement. Her home was a wreck. I called and without 2 hours they were on the scene. They assessed the situation and began soaking up the water. They brought in fans, heaters, and everything to dry up the carpet, ceiling and floors. They left equipment to complete the drying process so there would not be any mold. They did an awesome job and I hope I never need them again, but for sure they are the ones I would call. Will recommend to all my family and friends.
Joanne D: Our house got flooded and as soon as my husband gave them a call, they were quick to have people over and start drying up our house before we got any damages. Their employees had great people skills and ensured us everything will be taken care of and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The guy that installed our ceramic floors after they did a great job drying up our house and cleaning everything up, did a fantastic job and our floors are gorgeous! I loved the fantastic customer service they have provided from the beginning to the end, and then some! we are definitely going to grow through them again with anything we need done with our house.
Luisa D: Fantastic experience… I was having sinus headaches and infections for the longest time. I was also starting to get vertigo and was convinced that it had to be related to maybe presence of mold in my house, maybe in the attic or the basement. The technician checked the entire house and told me there was no mold but (60percent) very high humidity levels . He installed an industrial size dehumidifier for 3 days and explained that it is essential to keep temperatures low during the summer in order to avoid the high humidity and eventual formation of mold. I then looked on the internet and found resent research linking high home humidity to respiratory illnesses such as sinus infections and vertigo.
Jessica S: I had a water loss to my home back in October 2015. My Master bathroom, master bedroom, and walk-in closet were affected. It was a total disaster! I was so worried about which company to go with to help get my house and family back to normal! This was our first experience with any type of significant damage to our home. I could not believe how quick, they all were to respond to our families misfortune. They graciously worked around our busy schedule, and were very knowledgeable of the work they performed. I have never been so satisfied with a business!!! They did a FANTASTIC JOB restoring my house back to normal! It is better now than it was before the water loss. I LOVE MY NEW FLOORS!!!!!!! Truly God Sent!!!
Anna J: Fast, reliable, friendly, and hardworking! The flooding started at 7pm on a Saturday and they were there within the hour. On top of all the fans and dehumidifiers they brought a back up sump pump to help keep our floors dry. They checked in daily and rolled out the “”paper”” carpet when they were working on the floors to keep things clean. I have a child and dog and they were extremely careful with their restoration process (ex. blocking off the area with plastic walls). They took charge in dealing with the insurance company via phone and in person when they came to estimate the damage. They also called and prepped the flooring company before we arrived to shop. Overall a great experience that I hope we don’t have to deal with again 😉
Eddie T: In April 2015 we had a leak in a bulkhead from the roof into our 16th floor condominium unit. The roof was not maintained properly and deteriorated to the point where the upper membrane cracked leaving massive areas of the insulation soaked with water. Despite it being their responsibility, the condominium association refused to act quickly to repair and stop the water leaks. From April through August the water dripped. On several occasions, the association tried to open the bulkhead without taking proper steps to provide for mold controls and containment . We called this technician who immediately stepped in, notified the association if proper procedures of the requirements for mold containment protocol, and despite the association refusing to pay, he both saved us from having our entire home contaminated and did an excellent job of containing, removing and treating the mold. I highly recommend him
