Disaster Clean Up Better Restorations

In business since 1974 and known as Better Floors & Restorations for 35 of those years our company is a family owned and operated, licensed and insured California general contractor with certified restoration technicians and inspectors.  We’re a single one-stop company for all water and fire damage restoration needs, including mold remediation, sewage removal, and smoke removal.  We maintain our own inventory of the latest in special equipment and supplies for immediate response, and as part of the DKI (Disaster Kleenup International) we have access to their huge arsenal of cutting-edge technology, personnel, and experience.

We have flooring specialists, with experts in carpet, wood, laminate and vinyl flooring. Floor to ceiling experts, actually.  We’re also a fully insured and licensed California general contractor, qualified to take on just about any project.

Emergency Water Damage Restoration

Time is of the essence.  By the time you call, water will have soaked through flooring and quite possibly wicked upwards in walls.  It penetrates so deeply that it will take weeks and weeks to fully evaporate.  But in as little as 24 hours it will be causing mold (often hidden inside walls and under seemingly dry carpet) and actually destroying porous building materials such as wood and dry wall.  It doesn’t take a natural disaster in Placentia or a ruptured water heater to need flood damage restoration.  The IICRC recommends professional attention for anything that soaks more than a small part of a single room (www.iicrc.com).

On arrival our certified inspectors will make an immediate assessment of the structure and your possessions, including treatment versus replacement decisions.  Depending on the exact nature of your particular situation our services will include any or all of the following.

  • pump out
  • water extraction with powerful specially designed truck-mounted equipment for floors, walls, and ceilings
  • thorough structural drying with turbo dryers and dehumidifiers
  • carpet and upholstery cleaning
  • ozone deodorization
  • water damage repairs

Rather than suffering through progressive destruction over a month or even longer, we’ll get even deep moisture down to safe levels in just a few days.  Along the way we’ll maintain complete and detailed documentation as required for insurance claims.

Certified Mold Remediation

You shouldn’t be concerned only about black mold.  Many other types also emit dangerous toxins and all can cause health issues and mold damage to the building.  That can even be happening completely out of sight, since this kind of fungus grows just fine in complete darkness and loves Placentia’s mild temperatures.  With the need extensive precautions against spread and health hazards, mold removal should only be performed by licensed professionals.  Our certified technicians follow all EPA and OSHA standards to protect you, your home, and your family.  Here’s a summary of our checklist.

  • isolate the work area and establish containment and monitoring controls
  • establish negative air pressure ventilation and air scrubbing
  • complete thorough surface and structural mold removal using the best method for the situation such as a wipe down, HEPA vacuuming, or cryo-cleaning along with removing affected porous materials
  • complete carpet, upholstery, and duct cleaning
  • apply disinfection and in special situations encapsulate
  • neutralize odors
  • complete repairs, cleanup, and haul-away with proper hazardous materials transportation and disposal

Stay Safe with Sewage Removal

Our certifications also include disinfection and decontamination for sewage backups.  Bacteria and viruses quickly become airborne, so special precautions are critical.  Beyond a sanitary pump out we’ll complete sewage removal with services such as chemical wipe-downs, HEPA vacuuming, and encapsulation.

Fire Damage Restoration

We also have experienced technicians certified in fire damage restoration, including smoke removal.  Smoke odor compounds quickly penetrate so deeply that they’re simply impossible to remove, so our experts are ready for immediate and thorough action with specialized solutions including dry-ice blasting and ozone odor neutralization.  Our crews are also ready for debris clean up, demolition, repairs, and reconstruction for your Placentia home or business.

Additional Services

We’re experienced and well prepared for additional home and business disaster and storm damage recovery tasks such as board up and tarp over along with debris removal.  Our pack out and storage services keep furniture and other possessions safe and out of the way.  Our leak detection experts can pinpoint the source of water damage, whether a plumbing, slab, or roof leak.
