House Flooding Restoration Company
As a homeowner, flooding is one of the worst problems you can face. Though you may assume that you’re safe because you don’t live in a flood zone, any region that gets a large amount of rainfall is susceptible to flooding and flood damage. That water can pool around the foundation and cause cracks or get behind the siding or paint on your home’s walls and cause even more damage. With our house flooding restoration work, you can recover from any type of flood damage.
What to do Before a Flood
No matter where you live, you should receive some type of warning that a flood is possible. This gives you time to prepare your home, including turning off the electricity and moving important documents and other items to a second floor or another safe space. Even if you don’t have time to get your home ready for the possible flooding, you can still contact us and ask about our flood damage services. With our property flood cleanup, you can rest assured that our team can handle any issues facing your home.
Removing the standing water in your home is the most important step to take after storm and hurricane flooding. The longer that you leave large amounts of water around, the more damage it will cause. That water can attract small animals and insects and leave behind foul odors. You may find that the water brought dirt and debris along with it. After a flood sweeps through your region, finding a pump from a nearby store is often impossible. We have all the pumps necessary to remove standing water from your home as well as tools that we can use on wet carpet too.
Hard Surface Cleaning
Whether you call us about a flooded kitchen or basement, you’ll find that we have flood house solutions that include hard surface cleaning. Mold and mildew are just two of the problems that you might face. Mildew can set in after a flood and spread across an entire wall or over your whole floor, especially if you have hard surfaces such as tile or hardwood. Mold is just as likely because it only needs humidity and a source of food to survive. It’s common for mold to quickly spread through a home, especially if you leave your home empty and don’t take care of the flood damage. Our hard surface cleaning eliminates all traces of mold and mildew as well as the flood damage.
Identify the Source of the Problem
We recommend that you first find the source of the mold problem. You may want to check for any water leaks and look for moisture buildup. If you have a small leak in your toilet, the water gives the mold the moisture that it needs. It can feed on any type of food or nutritional source in the room and thrive in the warm humidity.
Carpet and Floor Cleaning
No matter what type of flooding you experience, cleaning all of the carpets and other floors is an important step to take. If you allow wet floors to remain in your home, the excess moisture can attract spores and seeds. By the time you come home, you might find that you have mushrooms and other substances growing on your floors. Our restoration maintenance ensures that we remove all traces of water and moisture from your floors. We can also make sure that your home is safe for your family to live in again.
Mud and Silt
Many people don’t think about the mud and silt that they might find in their homes after a flood. This is very common in situations involving flood from rain. Not only can the rain come through the ceiling, but it can also come through any cracks in your foundation as well as openings in your home. As the rain rushes through your neighborhood, it will pick up mud and other debris that it carries into your home. Our team has all of the equipment necessary to remove that mud and silt before they begin cleaning your home.
Another thing that you need to consider if how you will take care of textiles that suffered damage as a result of flooding. Textiles refer to soft fabrics and furnishings in your home, including your clothing and the plush animals that your kids love as well as your couch and mattresses. A combination of bleach and water can remove dirt and mud from those surfaces, but using the wrong concentration can damage those items. We have the training necessary to clean your textiles without damaging them.
Wet Surface Repair
Our house flooding options include repairs too. Floods can cause a significant amount of damage to the walls in your home as well as your floors. As the water seeps into the walls, it causes the wallpaper or paint to peel away and can leave those surfaces feeling soft to the touch. You might come home to find chunks of plaster falling from the ceiling too. Our talented team can restore and surface that suffers damage and help you choose the right wet wall repair options for your home.
Types of Flooding
Some of the more common types of flooding include those caused by rain and other weather conditions such as hurricanes. You don’t need to live in a specific region or city to suffer flood damage though. All it takes is one tree root growing in your pipes to experience damage caused by a flood from pipes. A burst pipe can occur in the ceiling, walls or floors and cause serious damage to multiple areas of your home. You might suffer a flood from ceiling tiles too because of a leaky roof. We have years of experience helping property owners like you recover from all types of flooding.
