Water damage is not biased to what gets damaged and what doesn’t. For example walls, wood components, contents, flooring and insulation may all be damage when in contact with water. Therefore, our technicians will evaluate the extent of the damage using advanced professional moisture detection equipment. Furthermore, the technician will set a “drying goal” and try to meet that goal as efficiently and quickly as possible by utilizing the right tools, equipment, and methods.
Monitoring the equipment is important but so is monitoring of the air being dried which is the invisible part of this whole process technically called “Atmospheric Readings” these are taken with RH units called hygrometers this tool will let us know that we have the affected air at optimum drying conditions to dry the building material in the quickest time possible.
We use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold.
Our specialized filtration equipment allows our Professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. Our mold professionals use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Removing and disposing of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, may be necessary to remediate heavy mold growth.
Our professionals clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold. They use a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and sanitize your belongings. They’re also trained to remove odors and deodorization using fogging equipment.
Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may be removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
