The need-to-know: general facts about water damage cleanup
Damp areas offer the perfect habitat for mold growth to spread to the walls, ceilings, and other areas. Also, the mold spores spread through the air, reaching the kitchen and bathroom to thrive more as these places have higher humidity levels.
Mold Growth Timeline
Whether a water leak or moisture seepage, mold grows after water damage within the next 24 hours. As a result, it weakens the walls and ceilings, leading to cracks while eating away at the wooden floor.
Health hazards by mold growth
From eye irritation or allergic reactions, mold colonies are dangerous to your family’s health. Other health risks include:
- Allergic fungal sinusitis
- Mold-induced asthma
- Hypersensitivity pneumonitis
- Mold Disposal by Professionals
To avoid the above harmful effects on health and property, it’s best to call professionals for standardized mold cleanup processing using advanced equipment and chemicals. Also, the experts use the desired material to remove mold from ceiling tiles, carpets, and other porous materials.
After the evaluation, water damage professionals search for the potential mold caused by water damage and do the desired repairs. The next step is to seal the infected area and remove the mold infestation using a vacuum and scrubs.

Rise above basement flooding
Besides heavy rainfall and other disasters, there can be several reasons behind flooded basements, such as:
- Cracks in the foundation due to hydrostatic pressure
- Leaking windows due to heavy rainstorms
- Absence of drainage system
- Drains clogged by sticks, debris, stones, leaves, and bird nests
- Internal leakage in the plumbing
Homeowners can’t detect the flooding symptoms until the basement is already flooded. However, you can shut off the main water supply and electrical connection before calling on the experts.

Revive your soaked carpets
Carpets and rugs certainly add to the overall aesthetics of your home. However, water damage or leakage can permanently damage the rugs if not treated on time. If you don’t want to throw away your beloved carpet, you should call us to connect with cleanup experts who use the following tools:
High-powered vacuum cleaner
It only takes experts to assess the carpet water damage due to clean water, flood water, or sewage water. This way, the teams use the desired cleaning method to restore the carpet. If it’s clean or flood water, a specialized, high-powered vacuum cleaner is used to extract water from the carpet.
Water extraction techniques
Water damage experts use the biocide, hot water extraction method, dry foam, and shampoo to remove the contamination and other pathogens that breed in the moist carpet.
Cleaning floor under carpet water damage
Cleaning carpets indoors isn’t a great idea as it can further lead to moisture seepage in the floor. Our professional staff carefully removes the carpet from the floor, cleans it, and completely dries it before installing again. Similarly, if the subfloor is made of plywood, the teams remove the padding and let the subfloor dry out completely before carpet installation.
