Always Ready to Go!
After a flood or plumbing disaster, a property owner must have spills cleared and dried as quickly as possible to prevent secondary property damage. The wall-to-wall carpets in a building will absorb moisture quickly. Our specialized process requires using industrial-strength equipment and cleansers. Our staff keeps its equipment on each service van so we are always prepared for disasters such as an overflowing sewer line or invading rainwater.
Our Water Extraction Process Starts With A Team of Technicians Arriving Quickly to Remove and Dry Affected Areas.
After arriving at a home or business, we can begin the cleaning process by completing an inspection to determine the extent of the affected areas. With heavy-duty & high-quality equipment, we are able to begin suctioning spilled areas from the wall-to-wall carpet’s fibers. We focus on removing the moisture from the edges of the carpets so that the moisture will not invade a room’s walls. If moisture enters the walls, then the water can damage a building’s insulation and electrical wiring. In addition, the mold spores inside the walls of a building will begin to multiply, leading to contamination from dangerous mold.
We Then Install Dehumidification and Air Circulation Equipment to Eliminate Moisture
Increasing the air circulation inside a flooded building is essential, and our technicians can install fans to dry the wet surfaces. At the same time, we will install dehumidification systems to eliminate additional moisture from the carpets. With dehumidification and air circulation, a building is less likely to develop mold growth in the ductwork. During these processes, our technicians also apply to sanitize and deodorizing chemicals to prevent mold growth and mildew odor.
In Case of Further Damage, Technicians Can Lift Wet Carpets From the Floors
If a building’s floor fabrics are soaked, then the moisture will leak through the carpet’s backing and damage the underlying padding and floor tiles. Our professionals may need to lift the soaked carpets from the floors in order to extract moisture from the floorboards to prevent further damage to the building’s foundation.
We Can Steam Your Floors Fabrics to Eliminate Pathogens
One of the best ways for our technicians to eliminate the pathogens left behind by dirty water is to apply steam to the carpet fibers. This process will eliminate viruses, parasites, and bacteria to protect our customers from the contamination. In addition to efficient removal of spills, we recommend having a building’s carpets sanitized completely to ensure cleanliness. Experts recommend having soaked fabrics dried and sanitized within 24 hours of a water disaster to keep the fibers from degrading.
Types of Water Damage
Do not take it lightly if your carpets are covered in water, no matter the cause. A simple extraction and drying usually won’t cut it. Why is that you ask? After you remove the spills, you’ll need to give your floors fabrics a thorough carpet cleaning even if the water came from a non-contaminated source.
This is because wet carpets are highly susceptible to dirt and bacteria, and as long as they sit and soak, the chances of the entire home getting contaminated are at high risk. Therefore, a deep thorough cleaning is also mandatory once the affected areas have been removed of liquids and dried. That’s the only way to remove and disinfect any remaining dirt and germs.
We can classify water damage into three categories. We recommend taking all three very seriously, you should also know that our expert cleaning and water extraction service can save your carpets in all three cases.
Clean Water Damage
If clean water is spilled over large areas of your floors fabrics, you should professionally remove spilled areas and dry those areas out. But keep in mind that cleaning your floors fabrics thoroughly afterward is also important. Just because we call this ‘clean’ it doesn’t mean your floors are safe. As we mentioned before, soaked fabrics make carpets susceptible to contaminants from outside sources. Anyone who walks past these steps on a carpet while it is in such a state will leave some of the dirt and bacteria behind that will stick to the carpet easily.
The contamination of clean water also depends on other factors, like the amount of time that it was resting and the concentration of contaminants in plumbing. These contaminants are usually cooking fat, metals, hair, chemicals, soap particles, and others. Our professional cleaning staff can clean and clear all of that for you once we ensure that your carpets are dry and ready for service.
Grey Water Damage
If your carpets get soaked in grey water, don’t panic — we can salvage them too. However, if something like this happens, you need to act quickly and call us immediately because the time frame before gray water turns into black water is limited. Black water is a source of fungi, disease-causing bacteria, and other pathogens. All these can render your carpets useless.
So what is gray water?
We can consider gray water to be any amount that has been resting for more than 48 hours. Also, may come from washing machines, dishwashers, bathtubs, and shower basins, as well as toilet mixed with urine only. After another 24 to 48 hours, this water turns into the black water. Therefore, if spills from these sources cover your carpets, don’t wait. Call us, and we will be at your home to remove all spillage in no time.
Black Water Damage
Black water damage is the most serious type of harm a carpet can go through. It’s filled with pathogens and fungi and if not dried out immediately it will surely cause mold to appear. If your carpets have been sitting and socking for a long time, you might even want to consider replacing them. That’s why we always advise calling us immediately, as soon as you notice the flooding. The quicker the reaction, the greater are the chances to save your floors fabrics and added expenses.
Black water can come from various contaminated sources, like wastewater, plumbing, and outside sources like a flood. No matter the cause, our team will extract any moisture from carpeting, floorboards or tiles. What’s more, we will make sure to steam your carpets and thus remove any remaining pathogen.
