Do you need water damage removal services at your Westlake Village, California home or business? If so, that work needs to be done by professionals for a dependable and complete solution. And it has to be done immediately to head off further deterioration and to keep current problems such as staining and odors from becoming permanent. JW Home Care’s licensed technicians are ready 24 hours a day to make sure that all necessary measures are taken during the critical window of the first 1 to 2 days. Whether part of water damage removal or an independent problem, our highly trained technicians are also licensed for mold removal.
It doesn’t take a natural flood for you to need a flood company. Anything soaking more than a few square feet can leave lingering deep-down moisture that lasts for weeks, damaging wood, sheetrock, carpet, and just about any porous material along the way.
Whenever there’s water that’s been in contact with the ground or sewage, or standing for more than 24 hours, you’ll need flood restoration. That includes fast water removal along with expert disinfection and cleaning. With immediate action it’s possible to save carpets and minimize the warping of hardwood floors.
Water Damage Restoration
With soaked carpets (or worse) liquids quickly make their way into the sub-floor, creep up walls (yes, up, as much as 1-2 feet), and penetrate into the structure itself. Under conditions often encountered in the Westlake Village climate that harmful excess moisture can last weeks, a month, or even longer. But deterioration begins in as little as one or two days. It takes special skill and specialized equipment (not just a shop wet vac or carpet shampooer rental) to thoroughly complete the drying process quickly enough. That means two additional steps after any initial pump-out.
Water extraction gear exclusive to water damage contractors pulls out up to twice as much liquid from building surfaces as other methods and equipment. This alone cuts a couple of days off the time before moisture is down to safe levels.
Structural Dry Out
But that still leaves deep-down dampness. To pull that out in time requires refrigerant dehumidifiers, highly-specialized heaters, and powerful air movers. It also takes experienced and well-trained technicians to monitor humidity and moisture levels along with making frequent adjustments to keep the process moving along as quickly as possible and completed in just a few days.
Whether from flooding, firefighting, or just excess humidity (especially with Westlake Village’s mild and humid weather) mold restoration is a hazardous process. In addition to significant health risks from exposure to toxins and allergens, spores are easily spread to where they can cause problems elsewhere in the building. Our licensed technicians follow all precautions and a strict procedure for safe and thorough removal.
Smoke and Odor Removal
Soot and smoke are always important issues, and can affect just about any part of the building as well as any and all contents. Besides staining textiles and other materials, smoke compounds penetrate into many materials and release odors over the years. It even corrodes metals. Our smoke and odor removal specialists are ready to prevent that with unique cleaning services for building surfaces, carpet and upholstery, and various possessions along with air duct cleaning.
