The Attic in business after the roof was struck by Lighting

Lighting Strikes Your Business, We Will Strike Back!

After being struck by lighting, this business had a large amount of secondary created by the water seeping into the structure's attic. This causes the likelihood of microbial growth as the moisture and the ideal temperatures make the perfect environment for mold to spread in. Another problem that was critical in this case was the removal of insulation. When insulation gets wet, it decreases the efficiency, with the only solution is to remove the remaining insulation.  

Equipment Set-Up

Software Says Two Air Movers!

Pipe leak affected carpet flooring on the 2nd-floor hallway, master bedroom, and master closet. The homeowner had already removed carpet and pad from the master bedroom closet, so, in that room, they had to dry the subfloor. Pictures are taken every day that our technicians are on the job site arrive on the job site. Our Project Manager went in to do a visual assessment and, after entering all the notes into our proprietary software, which shows us the total number of equipment pieces we need and where we should place them. This software is easy to use, and it provides a straightforward explanation of what needs to get done. This is critical as then our project manager will then tell the technicians who perform the labor the steps to take and how much of each equipment they will need.

Extractor sucking up water

Extractor Mitigating Water Damage

Our water extractor is a staple for our water jobs. The extractor quickly sucks up standing water to get the property back to a state of dryness. Once the extraction of excess water is complete, air movers and dehumidifiers are set to get the property back to normal. Extraction helps speed up the mitigation process and helps to prevent microbial growth.

Drying Mats On Hardwood Floor

Water can seep through the slats in your hardwood floor and become trapped underneath the flooring. We use drying mats like the ones pictured here when it is possible to help extract the trapped moisture.
