Typically, standing water must be removed from your property within 24 to 48 hours to avoid further damage. The faster we can accomplish this, the better since there’ll be less water damage done to your house or office.

After removing all water, drying will be the next process. Water extraction and drying out service is helpful for homeowners and businesses who recently suffered from floods or strong storms. By drying out your place, we are preventing molds, mildew, and water damage from spreading. The benefits of such service outweighs the water damage restoration cost that comes with it. 

We use stackable air movers, dehumidifiers, large industrial fans, and a water extraction vacuum for this method.

Add-on services to restore your home’s condition

Apart from water extraction and drying, we offer other services to help you recover a hygienic residence. For instance, we offer a hot water carpet extraction service that helps clean and disinfect your soiled carpets after the flood.

It’s inevitable that your carpets and rugs will be stained and contaminated with germs after the flood. These microbes feed on organic matter (fabric is one of them) and your carpets and rugs are a good source of food for them.

Washing alone, it can’t guarantee that no bacteria are growing in between those fabrics. But with hot water extraction, we can wash and decontaminate your carpets and upholsteries. We have an advanced water extraction machine that effectively washes your garments without damaging them. 

We use hot water and steam for this process. Our strong wet vacuum, we’re going to use them to remove water from your carpets and rugs.

Besides that, we also do a disinfection service. This is vital since if it’s gray or wastewater flooding your home, that means microbes are everywhere. Water extraction, drying, and cleanup wouldn’t be enough to protect the health of your loved ones. That said, it would be necessary to decontaminate your home from these bacteria and viruses.

We use eco-friendly disinfectants in eradicating these things that can harm your health. After we’ve done our job, you’ll have a comfortable and hygienic space again.
