Water Damage Removal & Restoration
Water damage, with even a small leak, can happen in as little as 24 hours as water can soak deeply into building materials. Regardless of a small or large leak, our water damage services have you covered. Each source of water and extent of flooding presents its own demands in our plan of action for your home or business. Following IICRC guidelines (www.iicrc.org) we’re ready to tackle everything from Class 1 (little or no wet carpet and only part of a single room affected) all the way to Class 4 (one or more rooms with soaked flooring, water wicking upwards inside walls saturating insulation, and even stone and hardwood saturated). Category 1 water from clean sources degrades into Category 2 (filled with bacteria and viruses) in as little as 24 hours. And Category 3 water that’s been in contact with soil or sewage contamination requires extreme sanitation measures from our anti-microbial specialists.
In as little as a single day mold and other water damage begins, yet deeply soaked moisture can remain at harmful levels for many weeks. Our top priority rapidly and thoroughly drying the entire building and all of its contents in addition to cleanup and disinfection. Our certified flood restoration technicians turn those weeks into just a few days, forestalling further deterioration and getting your life back to normal much sooner. There are two main phases of our water damage removal work proceeds. For water extraction we use specially-designed vacuum equipment on walls and ceilings as well as floors for an immediate drop in humidity. We then complete a thorough structural dry out through an extensive set of refrigerant dehumidifiers, industry-specific air movers, and other equipment. Frequent monitoring keeps everything adjusted and lets us know when the job is done.
Mold Removal & Remediation
If you see any fuzzy blotches or health issues you might notice (such as irritations, allergies, or prolonged flu-like symptoms) these may only be revealing part of the picture. The bulk of a mold problem may be hidden from view since mold doesn’t need light to grow. Our licensed mold remediation specialists will assess the situation and complete a specific plan of action with detailed checklists. Our work then proceeds in three main, and often overlapping, phases. First, we’ll guard against spreading spores, allergens, toxins and other contaminants. For all but the smallest of projects that includes installing plastic sheeting and setting up negative-pressure exhaust fans along with HEPA air scrubbers. Second, we perform thorough spore and mold removal via any of several approved methods. Affected porous materials such as wood and drywall must be removed completely. Third we guard against re-growth by applying non-toxic mildicide and decontamination procedures such as air duct cleaning and carpet cleaning.
Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration
Fire and smoke restoration involves a whole host of specialist measures beyond debris haul away and repairs. Fire damage removal, water damage restoration, and smoke and odor removal are all major tasks requiring specialized equipment and skills. Our experts will carefully assess your particular situation and create a tailored recovery plan.
Rapid water extraction and structural drying to prevent further destruction is urgent when faced with a disturbing scene that most likely includes extensive water and foam from sprinklers and hoses. Mold abatement plays a large role too. It’s also likely that smoke, soot, and ash will have traveled far from their source, making their way through even the smallest openings and into unexpected places. There are special chemistries involved in smoke removal, as well as how to protect the material being cleaned. And it’s removal must be prompt and thorough in order to prevent permanent staining and other discoloration. In addition to cleaning possessions and building surfaces, it’s also necessary to remove odors in various cavities beyond the damaged areas. Our specialized equipment takes care of that.
