Flood and Sewage Cleanup
Beyond obvious mud and debris clean up, professional moisture meters and detailed inspections are necessary to create a flood damage restoration plan with all the right goals and checkpoints. A ground water source means that expert disinfection is paramount. If there’s been any sort of sewage backup, sanitation and cleaning must be extraordinarily thorough and include isolating the area so that airborne disease organisms don’s spread far and wide. There are also regulations covering transporting sewage wastes on La Palma streets and on to proper disposal.
Professional Water Damage Restoration in La Palma
Regardless of the source of water, the next key to water damage restoration is fast and complete drying. Even small amounts of water will soak through flooring and on into the structure itself. With a natural rate of evaporation (or even with the addition of fans) excess moisture will linger for weeks, causing progressive damage all along the way. That’s why you need experts with superior equipment for anything more than a few square feet of wet carpet. Here’s an outline of our process, following industry best-practices.
After any necessary pumping, our powerful truck-mounted water extraction vacuums speed surface drying a day or more by removing up to twice as much water as general-purpose equipment.
Structural Dry Out
Our structural drying services then deal with that deep down dampness with a combination of refrigerant dehumidifiers and special spot heaters, then dumps it outdoors with powerful blowers. That turns weeks into just a few days, preventing deterioration and getting your life back to normal all the sooner.
The EPA urges that you only attempt mold remediation yourself for areas smaller than about 3 by 3 feet, and then only by following a series of specific methods (https://www.epa.gov/mold/mold-cleanup-your-home). Otherwise you should hire a licensed professional like the mold removal experts at Regal. That’s because of the potential for very serious health hazards and the way spores spread so easily. A fungus, mold doesn’t need light to grow, so there could be a much bigger problem than you can see.
Our La Palma specialists begin with testing and inspection then isolate the work area with plastic sheeting, negative-pressure exhaust, and air scrubbers. The mold removal itself may involve any of several methods, including removing contaminated materials such as drywall. That’s followed by decontamination. Our cleanup also involves collecting all hazardous wastes and disposing of them properly as specified by La Palma ordinances and other regulations.
Whether a musty mold smell or odors from water-damage decay and bacteria, any bad smells won’t go away by themselves. That’s why we have odor removal equipment such as thermal foggers and ozone generators. They produce vapors that penetrate past where even the best cleaning can’t reach, neutralize odor-causing compounds, then harmlessly dissipate.
