Water Extraction and Dry Down.

In the absence of proper drying equipment, it is impossible to draw out moisture before it begins cultivating mold and causing further structural damage. Increased moisture in the air, after an indoor flood, can cause "secondary" damage to drywall, decorative wood, books, artwork and other items; thorough drying and dehumidification are vital parts of the water damage restoration process.

What I need to do about Flood Damage?

Can I begin the clean up myself?

In the case of a burned structure with soot and ash present - the answer is NO.

If you or your employees do attempt to stem further damage from a water or sewage leak, you must wear PPE (personal protective equipment), including Suit, Mask, Gloves, Respirator, and Boots.

Why is standing water or raw sewage dangerous?

Standing water or raw sewage may contain dangerous pathogens and bacteria, both airborne and settled, which are extremely dangerous if inhaled.

Is it safe to sleep in a house with smoke, sewage, or water damage?

Only if the damage is minor or confined to a small area. Otherwise, the answer is NO.

Residual smoke and ash contain hazardous particles, such as carcinogens, that can lead to serious illness if inhaled. In commercial structures and older homes, smoke and ash may also contain asbestos particles.

Standing water or raw sewage may contain dangerous pathogens and bacteria, both airborne and settled, which are extremely dangerous if inhaled.

Digital Meters & Moisture Mapping

Digital meters are some of the most valuable tools used on restoration projects. These handheld devices help map the moisture in materials that one cannot see; such as insulation, drywall, wood, carpet padding and concrete. Since the ideal moisture content varies not only from state to state, county to county, but also from material to material many of today's moisture meters allow one to preset moisture levels for a wide range of materials. The moment this level is exceeded an alarm goes off.

Using meters for moisture mapping not only helps track the drying process of materials but with the air in the structure, providing invaluable information about when to re-position drying equipment or when it is time to remove the equipment all together.
