The top priority in reducing water damage repair costs is rapid water removal, but it’s not just obvious wetness. Water quickly reaches deeply within the building’s structure where natural evaporation takes many weeks. The deterioration starts almost immediately. We’ll start the drying process using high performance water extraction vacuums on flooring, walls, and ceilings. Then a combination of commercial-grade dehumidifiers and air movers to actively pull out every last bit of excess moisture for a complete structural dryout. Along the way we’ll take care of specialist cleaning, disinfecting, and deodorizing for furniture and other possessions as well as for the building itself.
Water that comes in contact with the ground (IICRC category 3 — such as in storm flooding), will be filled with germs and other disease organisms, many of which become airborne. This requires expert sanitation by our certified antimicrobial specialists. Our flood restoration crews will wear protective clothing and ventilators, isolate the affected areas, and perform exceptionally thorough cleaning and disinfecting. In addition towater damage restoration measures, our flood damage removal services will also take care of debris cleanup.
Fire Damage Restoration
Due to the combination of direct damage, smoke and soot, and the water and foam used in firefighting, a wide range of special skills are required for fire damage restoration The key aspects of fire damage include:
- Assessment of all damage and conditions
- Shoring up any structural weaknesses, boarding over wall openings, and tarping over roof openings
- Debris removal and initial cleaning
- Removal of both damaged and undamaged furnishings and possessions
- Smoke and odor removal
- Water damage removal
- Fire damage repair
- Cleanup and haul away
Smoke and Odor Removal
There are hundreds of harmful chemicals in soot and smoke that can reach just about anywhere in a home or business. Many materials discolor in a matter of hours or even minutes, and stains can become permanent almost as quickly. Acidic compounds soon corrode almost any metal (including inside appliances and electronics), and even etch porcelain and glass if given enough time. In just a couple of days odor-causing compounds penetrate so deeply into porous materials that they can no longer be removed.
So smoke and odor removal efforts are urgent and extensive. For large building surfaces that may involve dry-ice blasting. For smaller surfaces, furniture, and other
possessions thorough removal requires cleansers uniquely formulated for particular combinations of the type of smoke and the type of material affected. Our ozone generators produce a gas that penetrates below the surface of porous materials as well as reaches into the inner structure to safely break down odor compounds then dissipate harmlessly.
The EPA specifically recommends licensed mold removal specialists for problems covering more than 10 square feet
(https://www.epa.gov/mold/mold-cleanup-your-home). Keep in mind that mold is a fungus that doesn’t need light to grow, so what you see may only be the tip of the iceberg. Our licensed and certified mold remediation experts follow a detailed checklist that includes isolating the work area, setting up special exhaust fans and air filters, mold removal by any of several approved methods, decontaminating the building, and removing musty odors.
