Household emergencies can’t be predicted and the damage is typically far worse than anticipated. They can occur due to water, smoke, fire, and power outages. The problem arises from the unexpected nature of the situation and the fact that damage can be occurring for days or weeks without your knowledge.

When an emergency happens, it’s time to call in the professionals as quickly as possible. They can remove water, dry the premises, repair the problem, and restore a wide range of belongings to pre-damage condition. Professionals will provide pack out and content services for your possessions, sanitize the premises, and leave the entire area sparkling clean and healthy.

The following are just some of the common types of household emergencies that can be rectified through rapid restoration and mitigation services.

Appliances

Refrigerators and freezers are appliances that can leak and cause water damage. Sometimes they may just be at the end of their life expectancy. In other situations, a power outage will cause freezers and refrigerators to thaw and leak.

Bacterial/Viral Sanitation

Outbreaks of bacteria and viruses are extremely difficult to control by ordinary means. The methods available to a professional service are appropriate for homes, businesses, commercial properties, and medical/lab facilities.

Biohazard Cleanup

Crime scenes produce a variety of contaminants, including blood and other bodily fluids. Rapid cleanup and restoration of premises is essential and aids in addressing trauma. Another situation that constitutes a biohazard is a backed up toilet that can spread infectious diseases.

Blocked Drains

Blocked drains are inconvenient, cause significant damage, and can spread infectious and communicable diseases. It also affects air quality.

Burst Pipes, Leaky Water Heaters

A pipe that bursts violently will spray water for quite a distance. A slow leak from a broken pipe or water heater is insidious and can take months to notice. By the time it’s discovered, a significant amount of damage has been done to floors and walls. In condos and apartments, water damage can occur when water leaks down from above.

Damaged Roof, Gutters

Even a small leak from a damaged roof can compromise the structural integrity of a building. Damaged gutters result in rainwater backup that will seep under roof edgings. Both situations result in damage to the wood and insulation and promote mold growth.

Fire

A fire and resultant water from sprinkler systems or fire departments soak every inch of a structure and the acrid smell of smoke can be overpowering. Professionals can repair any damage, remove smoke and water, and sanitize the premises to eliminate any trace of mold or odor.

Mold

A side effect of leaky appliances, storm damage, and humid climates is mold. It can grow behind walls, in ceilings, and in air conditioning ductwork. It adversely affects air quality and can even be dangerous if you have allergies or chronic respiratory conditions.

Storm Damage

Hurricanes and even ordinary storms can result in flooding and storm surges. The damage is extensive and it’s imperative that the water and possessions be removed quickly to enable crews to dry the premises, repair any damage, remediate mold, and minimize damage.
