Within one hour, furniture submerged in water can start to swell, split and stain. Within 48 hours, mold, mildew and bacteria will start to destroy carpet backing. The faster you act, the lesser the damage.
Mold – a Four-Lettered Word Most Feared
A special note about mold. Mold is one of the most destructive and dangerous microorganisms that exists. Excessive moisture and warm temperature allow it to flourish at an exponential rate. Highly adaptable, mold is an enzyme-producing organism that will grow on any surface, as long as moisture is present. And if large concentrations of mold spores are inhaled, they can cause health issues such as Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis. For these reasons, it is vital to dry wet property within the first 48 hours of a flood to prevent irreversible damage and possible health risks.
We will remove carpets if necessary, and supply you with Industrial Grade Turbo Dryers and Dehumidifiers to get your home or business premises dry as soon as possible. We treat materials with an antimicrobial to help prevent odors caused by mildew and bacteria. We also sanitize and deodorize where needed. Padding always needs to be discarded and is inexpensive to replace. Carpets, once cleaned, dried and treated, can in some cases be reinstalled with no adverse effects.
You don’t have to suffer a full-blown flood to experience the consequences of water damage. Even if you have a minor water problem, such as leaky pipe, overflow from a washer or rain seepage, it is equally important to attend to the water damage. We employ HydroSensors to detect moisture deep in floor coverings and walls to help you locate an elusive moisture problem. Once the root source has been identified, we offer you solutions to eliminate the problem. Getting you dry is always our first order of business, because we know how much damage moisture can cause to homes and health.

Electrical Equipment & Computer Drying
Your hardware, electrical equipment and computers may be damaged by water as a result of a variety of events, including ground water flooding, fire suppression sprinkler system discharge, roof and pipe leaks, and condensation due to fire suppression steam and other humidity sources. The corrosiveness of water can vary dramatically. While fresh water can be classified to have the least corrosive pH levels, other materials such as oxygen, chemicals and other minerals involved in a water damage situation, can directly influence corrosiveness and its effects. Flood water thus acts very quickly to corrode and destroy your machinery, equipment and computers.
Immediate de-flooding, dehumidification, and loose surface debris removal are thus imperative. The goal in setting up dehumidification should include removing moisture and achieving a relative humidity in the ambient air below 40% within 24 to 48 hours after the surface water is removed. Where acid vapors, hydroscopic impurities, and salt precipitates are not a concern, a reduction of ambient relative humidity to 40% will generally limit corrosive activity.
Wood Floor & Furniture Drying
A wide range of moisture-related deterioration occurs to hardwood floors after a building or home is damaged by water. Wood swells, buckles or in extreme cases, begins to rot.
Proper drying can reverse these problems with the prompt employment of deep drying techniques. In fact, two-inch wooden floors have been dried and gradually returned to their normal condition. The techniques employed include tenting and moisture containment using high-pressure pumps.
Tenting is one of the special techniques used to deliver the proper amount of dry air in the appropriate manner to water-soaked areas. Precise monitoring is critical to the process.
Another special technique for saving hardwood floors involves high-pressure pumps for removing moisture and reversing cupping and buckling.
When your Hardwood Floors are water damaged consider the cost and time of replacement and then give us a call for an estimate on restoration. It’s the easy, fast and affordable way to eliminate permanent water damage.
If you are faced with any of these emergencies call Disaster Restoration—immediate action is necessary to recover and restore as much of your property as you can, whether it’s your carpets, floors, documents, building structure, electronics, machinery or computers.
