Accepting all insurance companies, our rapid drying blocks further deterioration and gets everything back to pre-loss condition all the sooner.
Water Damage Restoration
The amount of water and how long it remains are the biggest factors in determining the extent of water damage repairs necessary. But it doesn’t take as much as most people in West Covina think. Following IICRC guidelines (www.iicrc.org), just a few gallons soaks through flooring and into the structure itself where it can take weeks to evaporate. But in as little as 24 hours even high moisture usually leads to mold, and given time decay. With an entire room soaked (Class 2) water even wicks upwards in walls destroying drywall and causing still more hidden deterioration.
So immediate and thorough water restoration is critical. Beginning with an expert assessment we’ll dry and dehumidify everything within days, not weeks. That means using our exceptionally effective water extraction gear for surface drying of floors, walls, and ceilings. We’ll then deploy the right mix of commercial-grade dehumidifiers, specialized air movers, and other drying equipment for a complete structural dry out. Meanwhile our technicians will be attending to cleaning and deodorizing rugs, carpets, upholstery, and other contents as well as the building itself.
Sewage cleanup also falls under IICRC Category 3, but clearly requires even more extreme worker protection and one of our certified antimicrobial technicians to assure absolutely thorough cleaning and disinfection. After sewage removal, any porous materials that have been directly in contact must also be removed and either heat sterilized or discarded. We abide by all regulations regarding sewage extraction and its proper transportation and disposal in West Covina. With nothing left for you to deal with, we’ll leave your home or building odor-free and spotlessly clean.
Flood damage restoration also involves special attention to sanitation. Any water is likely to become a health hazard after a day or so in mild West Covina temperatures, and “gray” water (IICRC Category 2) requires disinfection and extra cleaning procedures from the very start. Whether in a wet entrance area or a basement flood, any source that’s been in contact with the ground (Category 3) must be treated as highly unsanitary. Its proper cleanup includes worker protection and isolating unaffected areas (germs easily become airborne) as well as diligent sanitation with commercial-strength disinfectants.
Mold poses a range of health risks, from allergies to potentially life threatening conditions. And unfortunately any fuzzy blobs you see may not be telling the whole story. First, black mold isn’t the only toxic variety. Second, not needing light to grow you could have a big problem that you can’t even see. So if there’s any suspicions give us a call for a professional assessment. As necessary our licensed mold remediation team can take care of it. We’ll isolate the area to prevent the spread of spores and contamination, then provide thorough spore and mold removal. Non-toxic mildicides further guard against re-growth and we can decontaminate surrounding areas with air duct and carpet cleaning. We also have odor removal equipment to neutralize any lingering musty smells.
