TIPS & SERVICES
Turn off the water supply. Stop the source of the flood to keep the damage from spreading – most sources of water in your home or business have shut-off valves that can be turned off. If the source of water can’t be turned off or the plumbing break is in a wall, call a plumber as quickly as possible.
With any water damage mitigation, you need to be safe. If a restoration company does not extract the water properly, secondary problems will arise such as mold. If mold grows, the property dwellers may not notice it until a later time, in which they find themselves constantly sick with no reason why.
With the harsh weather conditions and subzero degree temperatures, we wanted to create a resource for preventing frozen pipes, for thawing pipes that are already frozen, and what to do if your frozen pipes burst.
If the area you reside in is prone to freezing temperatures for extensive periods of time, you may have personally experienced or know neighbors in your area who have had frozen pipes-which is not a favorable experience. The time you take to ensure your pipes are well insulated will be invaluable if it prevents a frozen pipe. The problem with a frozen pipe, other than the fact that ice can expand so much that it can burst open a pipe, is that you will not have running water. A broken pipe can subsequently lead to flooding, damaging your property and personal belongings.
Proper sewage cleanup requires an understanding of the hazards that the water in sewer pipes contains. Even if you do not see obvious signs of human waste, it is there, and so are the microorganisms that can cause very serious illness. All it takes is a splash in the eye, or exposure to a small cut on a finger to result in infection.
Flooding and Moisture Damage
You need sewage cleanup if you have suffered a natural flood – such as a river overflowing its banks. That river has been picking up contaminants and waste as it traveled out of its banks, and through various sewers. Animal waste is as dangerous as human effluent. Flooding and other water problems can have serious long term effects. In addition to the more obvious damage, moisture which seeps into floorboards, framing, wooden trim, and other components can go on causing problems for weeks or even months. If that unseen moisture contains contaminants, the problem of hidden moisture multiplies. We understand the importance of proper sewage mitigation, and we work to ensure your issues are taken care of right the first time.
Our sewage cleanup teams understand the importance of a fast response, and they are always available on an emergency basis no matter what time of day or the day of the year. You’ll see that we work safely but efficiently to remove any standing water or waste, and to use steam cleaning, detergents, and antibiotic formulas to eliminate health hazards.
