Rigorous testing has been performed for each emergency to ensure that all water is completely removed and future problems are prevented. The test results will also determine the appropriate amount and type of equipment to be used for each room or surface. Upon completion of work, the entire area is disinfected through the use of antimicrobial agents. We use state-of-the-art equipment to detect levels of humidity on the surface and in the air.
If the water is not completely removed, the materials and surfaces are prone to damage such as swelling, sheathing, fracture, and the additional presence of water can play a very important role in mold entry into the environment. The presence of mould is very dangerous because it can be a health hazard by contaminating the air, and can be hidden in corners or between walls, unobserved by the human eye.
Black and gray water can also be a major hazard, as wooden surfaces, insulation, and drywall tend to soak the water and block different odors within their surfaces. In most cases, it can be repaired with proper adjustment, but sometimes the removal and replacement of drywall and wooden surfaces are required. In that case, we provide full service and replacement to ensure that the work being done is perfect and that your home may look as good as it used to be, or even better.
As mentioned before, water damage is one of the most common and impactful emergencies. It can come from a variety of sources and is usually an after-effect of fire damage, and it is very important that you act as quickly as possible to isolate the hazard and start the water removal process.
