Water and Flood Damage Restoration
Prompt action by an experienced restoration team makes all the difference in mitigating structural damage to property. Emergency Fire & Water Restoration is at your service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We have experience in all areas of water damage, from pipe bursts and roof leaks to sewage drain back-ups and sump pump failures. We concentrate on safely drying, deodorizing, and disinfecting the areas affected by water damage. This reduces the potential of secondary damage caused by prolonged levels of elevated moisture. We have the ability to address any disaster situation, large or small, residential or commercial.
Water Extraction Services:
Water extraction is usually the first step in the structural drying process and needs to be addressed immediately in order to minimize further damage. Emergency Fire & Water Restoration has the experience and equipment to quickly and safely extract water form all types of structures. We use state-of-the-art portable and truck mounted extraction equipment to ensure maximum effectiveness. The more water removed during the extraction process, the faster the drying process will be.
Different types of water contain different levels of bacteria, viruses, and pathogens. The water from a plumbing supply pipe does not have the same level of contaminates as water from a dishwasher leak, toilet bowl overflow, sewage drain back-up, or rain water. Contaminated water can spread harmful bacteria and viruses to any surface it touches. Emergency Fire & Water Restoration uses industrial strength anti-microbial solutions containing germicides, fungicides, and algaecides to kill these harmful agents before they cause greater damage to your property or cause personal injury.
Air Movement & Dehumidification:
Once water has been extracted from a structure, and potential contaminates have been addressed, industrial air movers and dehumidifiers are brought in to accelerate the drying process. Equipment is usually set-up to create a vortex which maximizes airflow and allows dehumidification units to capture the most moisture in the least amount of time. Temperature control is imperative and can speed up or slow down the drying process if not monitored. The average structure can normally be dried-out within 3-5 days depending on the type of water loss and circumstances. In certain cases additional specialty drying equipment may need to be used to dry structural materials in a more controlled environment.
