What will Happen When You Call Us? A Three Step Water Damage Clean Up Process for Atlanta Property Owners
After you call us to come out and fix your water damage, we will respond as quickly as possible. Fast action after a house fire, storm, burst pipe or any other plumbing disaster can save you thousands of dollars in terms of preventing damage to electrical equipment and structural components. It will also increase the likelihood of saving your documents and soft furnishings as well. Repairing water damage is no joke, and you must remember that you will need to follow the correct 3 step process to dry things out and restore your home or business back to normal – which is exactly what we can help you with.
Step 1 - Water Extraction
This involves removing any standing water and wet materials like damaged drywall, carpet padding and insulation; to make sure that the property dries out fully. Our technicians will use industrial vacuum equipment to ensure the standing water removal process is done efficiently. The team leader will also make sure there is enough manpower on the ground to promptly and safely remove any water retaining material, so that we can proceed with the next step of the water damage restoration process.
Extraction is an essential part of the 3-step process, and our we have powerful, truck-mounted equipment which will extract hundreds or thousands (if necessary) of gallons of water quickly and and in the fastest time possible so that you can get your Atlanta property back to the state that it should be in. When you call our phone number, you will not get an automated answering service. You will get a prompt answer to your phone call and our first available IICRC certified water damage contractor will come to your flooded home or building. We aim to respond within 60 minutes – whether you are a homeowner or a business. Regardless of the time of day, we know that water damage is an emergency and will treat it as such.
Step 2: Dry Out - Water Damage Mitigation
Through the application of air movers and dehumidifiers we will get rid of moisture laden air, ensuring that the property is dried completely so that the structural materials will not rot. During water damage remediation, it is important to mitigate the effects of excessive moisture as it can lead to peeling paint and warped materials, and allow mold to grow in the property as well. The quicker all of the excess moisture is removed, the better, and the greater the chance of the property being restored to its glory. Mold can be toxic, and is a particularly serious issue for people with respiratory conditions.
Upon the success of the water removal service, we can proceed to the next stage of the process which is water damage mitigation. How long it will take to get rid of the water depends on how much water there was in the residential house or commercial building, the size of the property structure, and how well ventilated it is. We use commercial dehumidifiers and powerful air movers, as well as moisture detection readers, so we can help you get your property dried out as quickly as possible.
Step 3: Water and Flood Damage Restoration
The final step in the process is to repair any water damage that had taken place. Water damage remediation can be an involved process. In many cases, we will need to remove baseboards or drill holes in the walls of the property to dry out the wall cavities. We will need to remove carpets and tiles, and may need to repair sheetrock in the ceiling as well. Wooden floors may be salvageable, but in some cases they need replaced. Insulation may need replaced as well. If we are able to dry out and repair removable items then we will do so. We us IICRC S500 standards for restoration, so you can be confident that you will get the best quality service, and that we will do everything in our power to bring your property back to its former glory.
The Importance of Quick Response Times
Water damage is a serious issue. It is vital that you get to work drying out the property as soon as possible. The first 24-48 hours are a critical time period for the prevention of permanent water damage, and to help to stop the growth of toxic microbes, bacteria, and mold. If you leave a drywall in a damp state even for 48 hours, mold will start to take hold on it.
This is why it is important to get a contractor out immediately. Don’t try to dry out a flooded property yourself – most consumer-grade tools simply are not up to the job, and you run the risk of electrocuting yourself, or exposing yourself to toxic fumes if you try to work in a flooded property. A contractor can assess the damage and start coming up with a water damage remediation plan, so the sooner you get them on-site the better. Since they have experience in working with a range of different materials, they will be able to help you with everything from removing carpets to fixing drywall, and they will be able to inspect the whole of the property, including areas behind cabinets, to ensure that there is no hidden water that could be promoting microbe growth.
Water damage remediation is something that will be more successful if it is completed as quickly as possible. The sooner you call out some experts to start work, the more likely it is that the work will be successful. Call us when you are alerted to the issue, and you will have a truck on the way to you immediately, so you have the peace of mind that your problem is being dealt with.

As such, we ensure that there is someone on stand-by ready to answer every phone call from our customers. Our company policy of the fastest response entails:

4. We can set up a hyper-dehydrating atmosphere using reduced grain desiccate and high speed air movers.

• Relocate any furniture or items which are inside the flooded area to a safe and dry place whether they are waterproof or not.
• Elevate any furniture or items that are too heavy to move. You can do this by placing the furniture on blocks.
• Flooding leads to conditions that eventually results in increased humidity. It also creates the perfect conditions for hazardous micro-organisms such as bacteria, mold, and fungi to thrive. As such, it is imperative to call in professionals to assess and address the situation.
• Do not switch any ceiling lights or fans if the ceiling is not dry, and stay away from any room where the ceiling is saggy or wet.
• Do not use any domestic vacuum cleaner to suck out any water on the floor or moisture. Additionally, avoid using any electrical appliances.

The number one step for preventing water damage is to keep your property dry. If you experience water damage – whether from leaky plumbing or something more drastic – then you must treat it immediately. If mold is allowed to take hold then it can cause health problems for you and your family, or lasting property damage. Prevent the issues of water damage and mold by calling our emergency service hotline as soon as possible after a water damage event.
2. Fast Mold Detection and Testing
It can be hard to detect mold, especially if you aren’t experienced in working with microbial hazards or water damage. Our experts have a surefire way of determining whether there has been some water damage to your property and we can uncover mold or prevent it. In Atlanta, Georgia, the climate is quite humid, and after storms it is not uncommon for damp to set in. We are trained in leak detection, mold detection, and damp treatment, so we can mitigate water damage and carry out repairs that will stop the problem from getting worse. That’s why its so important that you call us promptly.
Mold is not something that you should take lightly. It is important that you do not try to work with mold unless you know what you are doing. We know how to remove mold without spreading spores, and we take air samples both before and after the cleaning is done to ensure that the air quality is as good as possible, and that you are not just going to end up with a new mold problem in a few weeks when the spores grow back.

3. Efficient Mold Removal and Remediation
We will work with you to make sure that all mold is removed from your property in accordance with IICRC S520 guidelines. We know that mold is a serious issue, and that a lot of the time it is not growing in plain sight – but the side effects can still be problematic, even if you can’t see the mold. Children, pets and the elderly often suffer serious issues because of undetected mold. It often grows in damp and dark areas, crawl spaces, attics or basements, or air conditioning units (Which is how it can spread and cause so many problems). That’s why it’s a good idea to have a mold specialist take a look at your property even if you’ve only had a minor damp problem or small leak. It doesn’t take a lot for mold to take hold, and when it does it can be incredibly difficult to get rid of.
