Weighted Water Extractor

Weighted Water Extractor

This photo is a great example of our weighted water extractor at work. In an attempt to save this large area of carpeting, we pulled out the pad underneath the carpet and extracted as much water as we can in an effort to dry it. This extractor is very thorough in getting water from a soaked carpet. After extraction, we float the carpet and dry it from underneath.

Using a Moisture Meter

Using a Moisture Meter

By using a moisture meter, Our Water Certified Technicians are able to check areas that may not appear to even be wet, For example, maybe the insulation behind the wall is wet but the drywall or paneling looks dry and even feels dry when you run your hand over it.

Smoke Damage Cleanup

Smoke Damage Cleanup

After a smoke or fire damage, ceilings, walls, woodwork, carpeting and floors will often need a thorough cleaning. On our initial inspection, we will determine the extent of the damage and then use the specific equipment and cleaning products required to clean and protect the different types of surfaces found in your structure. Depending on the amount of soot, we may be able to reduce the cost of recovery by cleaning lighter soot deposits found on some surfaces, eliminating the expense incurred with repainting or refinishing.  In other cases, we may clean to prepare for painting.  This process deodorizes and ensures the new paint will adhere properly to the surface.  

Mold Containment
