Regal Restoration Masters
Call us anytime 24 hours a day and we’ll be at your Fillmore location in half an hour. Very few companies can say that, and even fewer have our three decades of experience. That says a lot about the quality of our work and customer care. Our clients appreciate our highly qualified, well trained, and certified technicians as well experienced and skilled construction crews. We’re properly licensed and fully insured, including holding a California general contractor’s license so we can take care of any and all building trades (carpentry, cabinetry, roofing, flooring, electrical, plumbing, etc.) you might need. Regal also maintains an arsenal of the latest technologies in the restoration industry — high capacity air movers, dehumidifiers, water extraction vacuums, ozone generators for odor removal, HEPA air scrubbers, and more.
With the proper homeowners and flood policies insurance should pay for the majority if not all of the costs of restoring your home or business to pre-loss conditions. We accept all insurance companies and will work with them directly in order to help you through a difficult time. We’ll handle photographic and written documentation, including proper mitigation services, for a smoother claims process.
Dampness quickly makes its way all the way to deep within the structure, yet takes weeks or even months to evaporate back out. Rather than letting it cause progressive destruction all that time our services get everything clean and safely dry in a matter of just a few days. We follow IICRC guidelines to create a work plan tailored to your particular situation covering the building (including any basement or crawl space) and its inner structure along with carpeting, rugs, and upholstered furniture. The IICRC sets drying, cleaning, and disinfection standards based on
- the extent of flooding (Class 1 through 4, ranging from a small area in a single room to several rooms with saturated carpet and wetness migrating up inside walls), and
- the source of flooding ranging from water directly form plumbing (Category 1) to minor contamination such as from a washing machine (Category 3) to sewage backups and natural flooding (Category 3).
Beyond pump out, debris cleanup, and flood damage repairs most incidents require extensive drying and disinfecting services. Regardless of the source, after 24 hours all wetness must be treated as a biohazard.
Water Damage Restoration
Whether from natural flooding or “just” a burst clothes washer hose, water restoration requires much more than most people think. Mopping and a wet vac simply aren’t enough to guard against deterioration. Even though surfaces may seem dry, dampness in the sub-floor and walls can cause hidden but progressive harm week after week. We stop that. First, our truck-mounted water extraction equipment pulls out as much as twice that of shop vacs or carpet cleaners. Then our refrigerant humidifiers along with industry-specific heaters and air movers pull out all excess moisture within a matter of just a few days. Along the way our cleaning and repair experts will take care of what you can see, and our odor removal experts will take care of any smells.
Sewage Damage Cleanup
A sewage backup or toilet overflow with feces calls for sanitation specialists for worker protection and complete disinfection. Cleaning must be absolutely thorough, and anything that came in contact with sewage must be either sterilized or discarded. In addition to neutralizing odors we also complete transfer and disposal in compliance with all Fillmore, California, and US regulations.
What you see and can’t see under carpet and other flooring, within walls, and above ceilings can indeed hurt you. A type of fungus, mold can grow in complete darkness inside a structure. Whatever started it and wherever it might be, it releases irritants, allergens, mycotoxins and causes health issues that can range from mild annoyances to extremely serious. Without proper isolation of the work area prior to mold remediation, spores along with those hazards spread easily. Hundreds of species are toxic, and only some of those are black in color. So our services begin with air and surface testing, and always follows regulations and EPA guidelines to the letter. Our licensed technicians complete the most thorough mold removal possible, then further guard against regrowth and spread by applying non-toxic anti-fungal treatments and professional air duct cleaning. We’ll also neutralize those lingering odors — they won’t be coming back after some mere fragrance dissipates.
Water Damage Repair and Reconstruction
Our water damage restoration services leave everything just like it was before. When repairs aren’t enough we’re ready for demolition and reconstruction of floors, walls, and roofs… even a complete wing of a building. Our skilled and experienced crews take pride in their craftsmanship, and we never use anything less than top-quality materials. And we’ll take care of all clean up and haul away.
