Water Loss Issues

Ways you can prevent or avoid additional water damage in your home:

  1. Disconnect your water hose during a freeze. Standing water in a hose may freeze back into the pipe and create an ice block that may bust your pipes and create damage to walls and floors. 
  2. Check and maintain your appliances regularly for leaks.
  3. Check your water pressure. If the pressure is too high, pipes and hoses may fail.
  4. Make sure your gutters and downspouts are cleaned out.
  5. Investigate leaks right away and fix immediately.
  6. Know the location of your water main. If you leave your house for an extended amount of time, shut it off to avoid leaks while you are gone.
  7. Monitor your water bill. Sometimes, the only way to realize you have a leak is by taking a good look at your water bill. If your usage jumps significantly from one month to the next without explanation, then you may have a leak somewhere. 

Fire Damage in Home

Impacts of Soot Damage

Soot can develop through three different methods:

·       Wet soot residue results from smoldering, low-heat fires. This residue is sticky, smeary, and has a very pungent odor.

·       Dry soot residue results from fast-burning fires with high temperatures. This residue is typically dry, powdery, and non-smeary.

·       Protein residue is almost invisible but can discolor paints and varnishes in your home. This residue also has an extremely pungent odor.

Our team will walk your property to determine the extent of damage. We will use specific equipment and cleaning products for the different types of surfaces and products found within your structure.
