Heavy Atlanta Rains Means Flooded Basements at XMas

by Bill Smith on 12/24/14

Its raining....its pouring... YOU GET IT :) Unfortunately as we deal with these heavy rains on Xmas eve, there will be people with flooded basements on Christmas Day. Water Damage is devastating any time of the year, but during the holidays with friends and family around, the problem is only compounded. The water from these heavy rains and potential flooding in store is made more painful because many homeowner insurance policies simply don't cover water coming in from the outside walls of the home - they only cover things like roof leaks, burst pipes, overflowing toilets etc!

The Mold Removal Process - Ridding Your Home of Unseen Hazards

by Bill Smith on 12/07/14

     After water damage has occurred, it is not uncommon for the affected area to develop the unseen and dangerous health hazard known as mold. Due to leftover moisture in areas that were not properly dried and treated, mold and mildew can grow rampant and pose a threat to the health of anyone residing in the home/property. Once mold has been discovered, there is a way to safely clean and dispose of it, as well as provide treatment so that it does not return.

     The process of removing mold is one that should be left to trained professionals as it can be a health hazard if not handled correctly. We use a safe and effective process for clearing a home of mold following these steps:

Find the source

Wherever there is mold, there is moisture. In order to find the source of the initial mold growth, we utilize thermal imaging to see behind walls, under flooring, and in places which are otherwise difficult to see with the naked eye.

Treat the area

Once the source has been established, we will work to dry the area completely while simultaneously removing the existing mold. Because this step requires the use of strong cleaning agents, our trained professionals will wear protective gear and will safely close off the area from the rest of your home. This ensures that the mold spores remain contained and do not spread to other areas of the building

Remove and dispose of mold

     When the entire area has been cleaned, special HEPA filtered vacuums are used to capture any remaining dust and all mold and other contaminated objects are removed from your home and disposed of in a safe, EPA compliant manner.

     In situations involving mold, it is best to allow professionals to handle the area. This is not only for you health and safety but also the health and safety of others who would have to have contact with the disposed of mold and other affected items. We take every precaution to make sure all contaminants are disposed of properly and that you can get back to enjoying your home without the worry of mold imposing on your health.

Fire Damage Restoration Process

by Bill Smith on 12/04/14

Anytime a home is damaged by fire it results in some type of loss, no matter if that loss is in the form of material objects or just the loss of the feeling of security, all home fires are scary. Anytime a fire breaks out in a fire the home must be thoroughly cleaned from top to bottom wherever the fire and smoke touched. It’s crucial to know what to do for your home after a fire breaks out and how to restore your home to its former glory.

Even after the fire has been extinguished, your home can continue to be damaged by two results from a fire; these are soot and invisible odors. The invisible odors stem from burned woods, plastics, and other materials in the home. Soot is the residue that has a chalky black and grey appearance. There are ways to repair your home as long as it’s still standing and fire restoration professionals can help you with the process.

The first thing you need to do is call your insurance agent and figure out what they cover and how to go about filing a claim. After your insurance situation has been settled, you will need to contact a fire restoration professional, like us, to help you with the rest of the process. One huge mistake most homeowners make is trying to clean items in their home before the professional has come to inspect the damage. Don’t do this as it can result in further damaging your home.

The fire restoration professionals will be equipped with everything they need in order to restore your home and they will know exactly how to clean everything that has been damaged. If your home has water damage from the firefighters spraying out the fire, you can try to soak up as much of the water as possible on your own.
