Water Damage Services
Small leaks can quickly lead to damage, with water soaking deeply into building materials. From an overflowing bathtub to a leak in a pipe our water damage services have you covered. Each source of water 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.
It takes just a single day for mold and water damage to begin, yet deeply soaked moisture can remain at harmful levels for many weeks. So in addition to cleanup and disinfection, rapidly and thoroughly drying the entire building and all of its contents are a top priority. Our certified water damage restoration technicians turn those weeks into just a few days, forestalling further deterioration and getting your life back to normal much sooner. Our water damage removal work proceeds in two main phases. 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, a type of fungus, doesn’t need light to grow and so the bulk of a problem may be completely hidden from view. 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 Damage Restoration
Fire and smoke restoration present many specialty measures that are more than debris haul away and repairs. Each, fire damage removal, water damage restoration, and smoke and odor removal, requires specialized equipment and skills. Our experts will carefully assess your particular situation and create a tailored recovery plan.
With a fire, most likely the damage is from extensive water and foam from the sprinklers and hoses requiring rapid water extraction and structural drying to prevent further destruction. Mold abatement is a big part of that. Generally smoke, soot, and ash will have traveled far from their source, making their way through even the smallest openings and into unexpected places. Smoke removal, as well as how to protect the material being cleaned, requires an understanding of the special chemistries involved. In order to permanent staining and other discoloration, cleaning must be prompt and thorough. 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 does this.
