Fast Response Team
Fusion Cleaning & Restoration offers 24 hour, 7 days a week, emergency service for water damage and flood extraction. Once the source of the problem is corrected, our trained professionals will come in and extract the water, treat to prevent mold, and set up drying equipment. They will also examine the walls for excessive moisture, the carpet for delamination, and the padding for damage and deterioration.Once they have determined the severity of the water damage they will make a decision as to how to handle the situation. If the pad shows signs of deteriation, they will cut and remove the damaged pad and then extract the excess water from the concrete, back and top of the carpet. If the pad is okay, the water will be extracted using a piece of equipment that uses pressure and suction to extract the water from the top of the carpet down through the pad. After the water is extracted, the affected area is treated to prevent mold and mildew.
Drying and dehumidification equipment is then set up. On average, the equipment remains at the affected location for three days. This could be more or less depending on the severity of the damage. The area affected will then be re-examined to insure their is no excessive moisture present. If everything is okay, the area will be put back to the condition it was before the water damage occurred.
Dehumidification is a process that can save the home or business owner money in restoration and replacement costs. Dehumidifiers are used in water damage situations to pull water and moisture from the walls, concrete, carpets, insulation, baseboards, and atmosphere. This reduces high humidity and moisture levels, allowing for a greater drying time and significantly reduces the chances for mold growth.
