Extracting water immediately is crucial to stop the further spread of water and moisture to other areas of your home or business. Damaged materials such as insulation, ceiling tiles, dry wall, and other absorbent materials will have to be removed. In many cases, carpet and padding will be removed and disposed due to the type of water damage that has occurred. If the latex backing hasn’t incurred too much damage, we may be able to dry them in place. Our professional water damage professionals will assess the damages to update you in real-time.

Immediately beginning the drying process will reduce the potential of mold and mildew growth on your belongings. Clothing, upholstery, furniture, and other materials can be dried in place with proper air flow, dehumidification, and monitoring.

For electronics drying, we are a Fireline Contents Restorer. Featuring a full line of ultrasonics and electronics cleaning from the Fireline and Odell systems. This means we can restore your electronics with the use of deionized water and drying chamber with the Odell Electronic Cleaning System.

Once your belongings are cleaned and verified they are in working order, they are carefully repacked and stored in our climate controlled vault storage containers until it is time to move your belonging back into your home or business.

If not cleaned and dried immediately, water damage to your home or business from flooding, storm damage, or water leaks could lead to structural damage on your property. Structural water damage can include your roof, attic, ceilings, walls, floors, carpet and padding, garage, basement, and/or other areas to your home or commercial property.

Your property is monitored and drying progress is tracked to ensure your home or office is drying out as safely and on a timely basis.

Wet documents, books, photos, and other multimedia can all be dried and restored from water damages – as long as we can act quickly. Depending on the type of water damage and the extent, we specialize in a few different document drying methods. These methods reduce further damages and could preserve the shape and cause less warping if treated right away.

Having the right tools for this job is key! After a flood or broken pipe does damage to your home or commercial building, we use our Injectidry Cavity Drying System to remove excess water and moisture. When drying hardwood floors, walls, ceilings, moldings, cabinetry, soffits, and cavities – the Injectidry Cavity Drying System is one of the most efficient ways to rid of water and moisture.

How to clean up water damage?

Water damage caused by heavy rains, flooded basement, overflowing faucet, toilet tank, refrigerator ice maker hoses, failed water heater, broken pipe or burst pipe should be cleaned up as soon as the water damage is discovered. Acting quickly could result in less water damages to your home or business.

The following is what to do to minimize water damages for a Category 1 Water Loss:

DO

  • SAFETY FIRST! Turn OFF electricity from the electrical box! Before going into an area affected by water, turn off the electricity in that area of your home or building.
    • Is the water OVER the electrical sockets on the floor or walls? If so, DO NOT TOUCH! This will lead to an electric shock.
    • If the water is NOT over the electrical sockets, then proceed in turning off the electricity and unplugging all electronics to ensure you will avoid a shock.
  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items.
  • Remove and prop up wet upholstery cushions for even drying (check for possible fabric color bleeding).
  • Place aluminum foil between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Turn on air conditioning for maximum drying in summer; open windows to speed drying in winter.
  • Open drawers and cabinet doors for complete drying (do not force, however.)
  • Remove valuable oil paintings and art objects to a safe place.
  • Blot wet carpeting with clean white towels.
  • Open suitcases and luggage to dry, in sunlight if possible.
  • Punch small holes in sagging ceilings to relieve trapped water (don’t forget to place pans beneath!).
  • Run air conditioners in the summer and open windows in the winter.

DON’T

  • Leave wet fabrics in place; dry as soon as possible. Hang furs and leather goods to dry separately at room temperature.
  • Leave books, magazines or other colored items on wet carpets or floors.
  • Use your household vacuum or a shop vac to remove water.
  • Use TVs or other appliances while standing on wet carpet or floors, especially not on wet concrete floors.
  • Turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet, and keep out of rooms where ceilings are sagging from retained water.
