What should you do when you see water damage?

  2. Next thing you should do is call Disaster Cleanup Services. Time is of the essence when it comes to water damage and recovering your property back to 100%.
  3. Begin to remove your electronics and other things that are not wet or flooded. This is important in cases where water is still leaking.
  4. Open windows to get air circulating, this will help with air flow and drying.

Disaster Cleanup Services to the Rescue!

  • The first thing Disaster Cleanup Services will do is assess the situation and go over our plan with you. We are here to make this stress free for you and that is our guarantee.
  • We begin by using high powered pumps to pump the water out. Our pumps will have your water pumped out in no time.
  • After the water is pumped out, we begin with drying. We use a special system of fans to evenly dry your home. This is important in avoiding buckles and cracks in your floor.
  • While we are drying your home, Disaster Cleanup Services uses high tech water detecting equipment to find water that is trapped in walls and under floors. If this water is left undetected, it will eventually cause rotting of your foundation as well as mold. Mold is highly dangerous and our job is to make sure it does not grow.
  • After everything is dry, we use antibacterial cleaning agents to clean furniture, rugs, drapes, etc. This helps in returning your items to their original shape as well as preventing mold growth.

If you have a disaster that strikes, don’t wait to call a professional. Give Disaster Cleanup Services a call! We are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week and our technicians are all certified and ready to handle even the biggest water damage.
