Water Damage Removal & Restoration

A small leak can lead to significant damage as water can soak deeply into building materials. Whether an overflowing bathtub to a burst washer hose, our water damage services have you covered. Following IICRC guidelines we’re ready to tackle everything from Class 1 (little or no wet carpet and only part of a single room affected) 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.

Mold Removal & Remediation

Any fuzzy blotches you might see or health issues you might notice (such as irritations, allergies, or prolonged flu-like symptoms) may only be revealing part of the picture.  A type of fungus, mold 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 include 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 & 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.

Most likely, the disturbing scene you’re facing includes extensive water and foam from sprinklers and hoses as with any flooding that requires rapid water extraction and structural drying to prevent further destruction.  Mold abatement is a big part of that.  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.  Smoke removal requires an understanding of the special chemistries involved, as well as how to protect the material being cleaned.  And it’s removal must be prompt and thorough in order to 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.
