Our water damage professionals will start to extract the water in your home or business by using high powered pumps and water extraction equipment. The bulk of the water must be removed in a quick time frame. The water must be removed quickly to prevent the risk of mold growth.We use high strength dry vacuums to remove the majority of the water. Once the water is removed we then inspect your carpet and padding under the carpet. If the carpet and padding are damaged we then will remove the carpet and padding immediately. By moving the wet carpet and padding it will help with the drying process. Once this is done we then bring in the drying equipment to start the drying process. We use hygrometers, moisture detection units, saturation meters and infrared cameras to detect water within the walls or structure of your property.

After a fire, you will suffer from ash, smoke and soot damage. Our friendly staff of fire restoration professionals are highly trained on how to clean and remove these elements from your home.
