Water Damage Restoration in Newbury Park

IMG_4654Professional water damage removal boils down to achieving the most rapid and thorough drying possible in order to avoid further damage.  Whether a basement flood or bathtub overflow, water quickly soaks through flooring, makes its way through even the smallest of cracks and openings, and then quickly penetrates deeply into porous building materials.  There’s really no way of stopping that, and the resulting deep-down dampness can take several weeks to evaporate even with extra ventilation.  Yet it can cause sheetrock to fall apart and wood to swell, warp, and crack in as little as 1 to 2 days.  As a flood company serving Newbury Park, we find it helpful to think of the process in 5 basic stages.

  1. Water Removal If there’s any standing liquid you’ll need a pump out.  And if there’s sewage or other contamination you’ll also need thorough disinfection services.  In fact any water, regardless of its source, must be treated as a bio-hazard teeming with germs and viruses after 24 hours.
  2. Water Extraction By using powerful specialized equipment we can remove up to twice as much wetness and cut as much as several days off the time it takes to get everything safely dry.
  3. Structural Dry Out Removing every last bit of excess moisture typically involves lifting or removing carpet, removing baseboards, and using unique refrigerant dehumidifiers to actively pull out all remaining dampness.
  4. Odor Removal Bacteria, fungus, and other microorganisms often lead to smells requiring special odor neutralizing methods.
  5. Water Damage Removal Finally comes actually repairing the initial damage.

Mold Remediation

If flood restoration doesn’t get started soon enough mold can become a major issue, especially during Newbury Park’s mild winters.  You might also need mold remediation as a result of poor ventilation in a bathroom or a leaky pipe.  And you may have a bigger problem than you think.  A type of fungus, it actually prefers dark places and loves to grow under flooring and inside walls.  Many species and colors are especially toxic, and all of them spread by way of nearly invisible floating spores.  That’s why only licensed specialists should undertake mold remediation.  The process involves thoroughly isolating the affected area, mold removal by any of several different techniques, applying eco-friendly mildicide, and removing odors from throughout the building.

Smoke and Odor Removal

Beyond carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning you’ll need expert smoke and odor removal after a fire, flood, or mold outbreak.  Our specialized services can treat the entire building and all contents at once by neutralizing odors with non-toxic and eco-friendly ozone generators and other industry best-practices.

Fire Damage Restoration

Our experience and expertise also includes fire damage removal.  It all starts with board-up and tarp overs.  Our emphasis is then on structural dry out after firefighting along with smoke and odor clean up for the building itself as well as for your furniture and other possessions.  It’s often best to utilize our pack out services.  We’ll assess, carefully pack, and move your belongings to our secure facility near Newbury Park for full treatment and storage until building renovation is complete.
