Flooded Basements and Crawlspaces
As the lowest points in your home, basements and crawlspaces are most prone to flooding. They are also where many major pipes are located, so plumbing malfunctions can cause flooding in these areas. When your basement or crawlspace gets wet (even with just a bit of water), you need to quickly act to clean it up and remove moisture. These spaces are very damp and dark, so they are ideal places for mold and bacteria to grow. The lack of air flow and ventilation can also be problematic. Our water damage cleanup experts know just how to get flooded basements and crawlspaces dry. We use industrial-grade equipment to pump out water, extraction machines to remove as much moisture as possible, and have the expertise needed to set up drying channels with our air movers and dehumidifiers.
Water Damage on Walls and Ceilings
If a pipe bursts in your home, it can cause water to splash all over your walls and ceilings, saturating drywall and insulation. Water damage can also occur to walls and ceilings when you have small pinhole leaks. There may only be a few drops of water leaking out of the pipes, but all those droplets add up to saturate the architecture of your home. Without any ventilation, the wetness leads to mold and property damage.
In cases of water damage cleanup on walls and ceilings, the first thing homeowners want to know is whether we can save their property. It depends on the extent of the water damage and type of material. Insulation and drywall are highly absorbent, so it is risky to leave them in place; they might not dry fast enough and you could get mold growth. Our technicians will help you understand your options. If we decide to dry the structures, then professional-grade injection drying systems are used. If drying is not possible in a quick timeframe, then our experts will remove water-damaged materials and restore your property.
Water Damage on Hardwood Floors
Hardwood floors absorb water, which then causes them to expand. If the moisture is left in the wood, the wood can become warped. However, if the water is dried out too quickly, it can cause the wood to crack or split. For these reasons, water damage cleanup on wood floors must be handled with extreme care. We use injection dry systems to extract water from within the grain of the wood and our technicians set up humidity control systems to ensure your wood floor is dried safely. Even if your wood floor has already begun to warp or buckle, our methods can often save it.
Sewage Damage Cleanup
Whether it is a toilet overflow or a sewer main backup, sewage damage cleanup is something which should only be handled by a professional. Our technicians are trained and certified in hazardous waste cleanup. Safety is our top priority. We make sure the affected area is contained so pathogens can’t travel through the air into other parts of your home. Our technicians wear full suits, goggles, gloves, boots, and respirators to protect themselves against the risk. Then they can get to work on cleaning up the sewage using extraction machines, disinfectants, biocides, and sealants. Your property will be restored and safe again so you can get on with your life.
