Protect yourself against further water damage removal costs in Moorpark, California by immediately calling in the experts at JW Homecare Restoration after a disaster. We’re a water damage restoration company with experience in water extraction, mold remediation, and leak detection as well as smoke and odor removal.
The first 1-2 days are by far the most critical, and it doesn’t take a basement flood to pose substantial health and safety risks. In as little as 24 hours you could be needing mold removal plus bacteria, viruses, and other disease organisms could also be flourishing. With anything more than damp carpet, liquid will be finding its way up inside walls and beneath flooring, quickly leading to crumbling drywall along warping and splitting wood. Without an experienced flood company offering complete flood services such as structural dry out, deterioration can continue for weeks — often completely hidden from view.
Our flood restoration experts are ready 24/7 every day of the year to keep losses to an absolute minimum after a Moorpark home or business emergency.
Unlike some flood companies we provide all the professional flood services you need in Moorpark, California from water removal to odor removal. As a water damage contractor we minimize the need for water damage restoration by focusing on prevention. That starts with quickly pumping out any standing water followed by exceptionally thorough water extraction using special-purpose equipment. Quite often that’s accompanied by careful sanitation and exhaustive disinfection. But that still leaves moisture trapped deep inside building materials that will continue to cause harm week after week. That’s why carefully monitored structural dry out with highly specialized gear is necessary, pulling out every last bit of excess moisture in a matter of just a few days. As needed, follow through can involve odor and mold removal.
Catastrophes such as basement flooding are obvious, but hidden leaks still lead to extensive water damage restoration if not caught early on. Our experts can quickly pinpoint the source (whether from plumbing, roofing, or other building problems) with non-destructive electronic leak detection instruments backed up by their years of experience.
Mold restoration involves a high degree of health risks, and careless mold removal can actually spread the problem. So work should only be performed by licensed professionals, like those from JW. They will isolate the work area and set up special exhaust fans and air scrubbers, then complete thorough mold removal by always following industry best practices. Follow-through includes air duct cleaning and applying mildicide, and often includes removing those musty smells.
Smoke and Odor Removal
Smoke is toxic as well as smelly, and can reach just about everywhere in a building. Even a nearby fire in Moorpark can leave you with problems. Proper smoke and odor removal requires far more than cleaning or wipe-downs. Smoke’s countless compounds quickly penetrate to depths where they can no longer be reached… and you’re stuck with those lingering smells. Our specialized processes and equipment take care of building surfaces and building contents, and our ozone generators and other special techniques find and neutralize odors wherever they might be hiding.
