Water Damage Restoration
Water Extraction – Whether due to a small leak or heavy flood, water needs to be removed from your home or office. A small leak often seeps into flooring or other unseen places. It is our job to make sure every area of your home is water-free to prevent further damage and mold.
Structural Drying – Once water is removed, the drying process begins. This process involves using dehumidifiers and high-quality drying machines to dry anything that can be saved. The sooner this process is started, the better!
Mold Prevention – The mold prevention process really starts with the water extraction process. After water is extracted and the area is dry, it is cleaned to make sure mold is unable to grow in the area. Our professional team is prepared to take care of this cleaning as well!

Although mold can be found almost anywhere, it needs moisture and nutrients to grow. The exact specifications for optimal mold growth vary by the species of mold. However, mold grows best in damp, warm environments. The primary factor that limits the growth of mold indoors is lack of moisture. Substantial indoor mold growth is virtually synonymous with the presence of moisture inside the building envelope. This intrusion of moisture might be from rainwater leaking through faulty gutters or a roof in disrepair, a foundation leak, condensation at an interface (e.g., windows or pipes), or between a cold and a warm environment. Water can also come from leaks in the plumbing or sewage system inside the structure. Studies of mold growth on building materials, such as plywood, have found that mold grows on materials that remain wet for 48 – 72 hours.
