Water & Flood Damage
Water is an essential element to the well being of people and pretty much any living thing. Too much water though can also be a huge problem. In recent years, floods have become quite common around Toronto. Many homes in the area have been really affected. For the most part, homes were not built to handle that type of damage. That is why they are having such a tough time with the excess amount of water these days. We can help you every step of the way when you encounter this type of issue.
Emergency Flood Clean Up
This is basically step one, in our services. When there is still water pouring into your home and causing damages. What we have to do in most cases is bring in special equipment to pump the water out of your home and then install fans or other types of equipment to get your home to dry off as quickly as possible. After we are able to pump the water out we are going to be able to make the first assessment on the damages. To be able to decide what our next move may be moving forward.
Drying Off & Deciding What Needs To Be Done
Like we mentioned in this part of the service what we will try to do is to dry off all of the affected areas before things get worse. To do that we can bring in fans or special equipment to get things like carpets dried up. These are usually the toughest fix when a flood occurs. As they tend to absorb a lot of water and sometimes the best idea is to remove them altogether. Since we will have to asses the potential damages below the carpet as well!
After everything has dried off we can actually begin to repair things. Walls, floors, and roofs, are the areas that we usually want to watch out for. Carpets as we just said are a bit tricky. Sometimes you think that everything may be ok because it has dried off and it may not look too bad, but the floor beneath the carpet can be heavily damaged. Especially because of the fact that the carpet took in so much water. We literally are looking to make sure that your floors and walls don’t rot from the inside. As well, as looking for damages in the structures and wiring that can bring a lot more problems your way.
Looking Good Feeling Good, Smelling Good?
Water that gets stuck someplace for an extended period of time will tend to give off very bad odors. These are actually also an indicator that something may not be right with a lot of the structures at home. Sometimes though we can come in and clean and dry everything off, the stench remains. We also have a special service like fire and smoke clean up, that takes unique care of these types of problems. Getting rid of that horrible smell once and for all.
