Walnut Water Damage Restoration Services
It doesn’t take a deluge to cause major water damage. Just part of a room with wet carpet can lead to mold and warped wood in just one to two days, but harmful moisture lingers for weeks even during Walnut summers. Our certified cleaning and water restoration technicians will keep further harm to your property at a minimum of one or more of the following services.
- water removal through pump out and drainage
- surface water extraction with high-performance vacuum equipment
- structural drying using turbo-dryers and commercial-grade dehumidifiers
- cleaning and disinfection
Flood Damage Repair
Major flooding, whether from a Walnut winter storm or a plumbing emergency, requires more aggressive efforts for two reasons. First, not only flooring and subflooring are thoroughly saturated, but water wicks upwards inside walls destroying sheetrock and soaking the wood. Expert water extraction and carefully monitored structural drying are critical. Second, flood cleanup has to deal with disease organisms. Any water that came in contact with soil or has lingered for more than a day will be filled with bacteria, viruses, and fungi that easily become airborne. So personal protective gear, isolation, and absolutely thorough disinfection are vital.
Sewage removal involves, quite literally, toxic waste that must be contained and isolated. Our anti-microbial specialists deal with that, keeping everyone safe and assuring that your home or business is left hygienic and odor-free. Our sewage clean up procedures include sewage extraction, wipe-down, HEPA vacuuming, encapsulation, and disinfection. Many contaminated materials must be discarded, so our Walnut crews are ready for repair work.
We’re an IAQ certified mold remediation firm following IICRC, EPA, and OSHA regulations, standards, and guidelines. Whether you have highly hazardous black mold or less toxic varieties, we take all the recommended precautions to keep everyone safe and prevent spread. Our service offerings include the following.
- inspection and test
