Water Damage Removal - Get Your Property Back to Normal

 

Are you dealing with flood damage? Get help from seasoned water damage removal professionals. We’ll remove the surface water to achieve surface dryness. Now, this is not enough. Water permeates into porous materials such as drywall or carpeting.

Our water extraction processes draw absorbed water, achieving a higher level of dryness. It prevents problems like swelling or wrapping of wooden floors. Certain materials may need replacing because they can’t be recovered.

  • Water cleanup, water extraction, and the removal of damaged materials must take place quickly, in order to prevent further damage, such as structural and electrical damage.For instance, laminate floors begin soaking up water after about 4 hours. At this point, it may be impossible to salvage them. In about 24 to 48 hours, mold starts to grow after the spores have landed on damp surfaces. Mold can be particularly dangerous because it quickly colonizes damp surfaces that have fiber-rich materials such as wood or fabric.

Our Water Damage Cleanup Process

Mid-Atlantic takes a professional approach when addressing water damage situations. We’ll first inspect and assess the extent of the flooding. Removing surface water is done using various tools, including water extractors. Next, our technicians carry out dehumidifying and drying. We utilize industrial-grade fans to push air over wet surfaces.

Using air scrubbers, we remove contaminants from the air, including mold spores. Industrial dehumidifiers reduce humidity levels further. Our procedures aim to achieve faster dry times and minimize damage to sensitive materials.

Step

Description

Location The Water Source The first step in any water damage restoration is finding the water source and stopping it from flowing. We use advanced moisture detection technology to locate the origin of the water, and then we take steps to stop the flow.
Standing Water Extraction Once the water has been stopped, we begin our restoration process by extracting any standing water from the property. This is done using powerful extraction equipment that quickly removes large amounts of water.
Removing Damaged Building Materials Once the water has been removed, we begin removing any damaged building materials. We remove wet carpets, drywall, and furniture from the property.
Drying And Dehumidification Once the excess water has been removed, we begin the drying process. This is done using industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers to remove any remaining moisture from the property. This helps prevent further damage and reduces the risk of mold and mildew growth.
Water Damage Repair Once the property is completely dry, we begin the repair process. This may include replacing damaged flooring, walls, ceilings, or furniture. We also clean and sanitize affected areas to prevent mold and bacteria from growing.

What Is Replaced During Water Damage Restoration Process?

One of your home’s most important investments is flooring. When water damage occurs, it’s not just the floor that suffers but also the walls and ceilings. The water can seep in and cause structural damage, requiring repair work. In some cases, the insulation and framing will also need to be replaced.

This is why it’s so important to have your water damage repaired as soon as possible. By delaying the water damage repair work, you could be risking even more damage to your home or business– not to mention the expenses that come with it.

Materials mark the start of the water mitigation and repair process. We will prepare a water damage restoration plan, and our goal is to restore your personal property to its previous condition. So, which areas may need repairs and refurbishments?

  • Structural materials, like framing and insulation, may need to be replaced after a flood or other type of water damage.
  • Damaged flooring: wooden, vinyl, sub-floors, and wet carpet.
  • Damaged walls: drywall, wallpapers, wood panels, and paint.
  • Water damaged & collapsed ceiling: drywall or gypsum.
  • Wooden materials such as doors, window frames, and trim can swell and warp when they contact with flood water.

 

It’s essential to have a professional look at the damage so that they can provide you with an accurate estimate for the water damage repair.

Why do You need To Act Fast After Water Damage?

Water damage events can be costly and time-consuming if not addressed as soon as possible. If left untreated, water permeation will increase, leading to significant water damage in your home or business. The longer the water sits, the more damage it will cause.

To prevent mold from growing, it’s important to dry out the property as quickly as possible.

It’s important to address the water damage as soon as possible to minimize the risk of further damage.
