Dry Star Restoration, a company based in Mesa, Arizona, has announced that they are offering the services of emergency water damage contractors in Phoenix and neighboring areas. This kind of service is essential to those who have experienced a flooding incident in their home or commercial establishment and want to bring things back to normal as fast as possible. By employing the services of a professional water damage contractor, homeowners and other property owners would be able to minimize the financial and structural damage that they would incur.
Richard Appel, owner of Dry Star Restoration, says, “Water damage can happen for a number of different reasons. Toilets can crack, pipes can break, and rivers can overflow their banks during flooding events. In general, water from a toilet tank or a broken intake pipe will be cleaner than damage that comes from sewage or a rising river or creek. Professional water damage contractors will be able to closely examine the source of the water to determine the proper course of action. In most cases, working fast will be key. The faster that water can be removed from fabrics and infrastructure, the better the chance they have of being used again.”
When providing water damage restoration services, they will use certain moisture detection tools to find out where the water has migrated. All of those areas will need to be addressed and properly dried. If there is any structural damage, they will have to be repaired or replaced. They will exercise care and use up-to-date methods to prevent damage resulting from swelling, warping, delaminating, and buckling. They ensure professionalism and timeliness in their work to prevent mold, odor, and other potential health problems.
It should be noted that there is fundamental connection between water damage and the growth of mold and/or mildew. Mold and mildew thrive where standing water has accumulated for a certain period of time. To minimize the risk of having a mold problem after a flooding event, it is advisable to have the water damage restoration started immediately. The water damage experts from Dry Star Restoration will start working on drying interior areas to prevent mold and mildew from getting a foothold in the property.
Dry Star Restoration also provides mold remediation services in Scottsdale, Phoenix and surrounding areas. When mold growth has already started in a home, mold remediation services would be required. This is because mold can be dangerous and hazardous to people’s health. Molds produce allergens, including mycotoxins, which are toxic substances that can be dangerous to people. When touched or inhaled, the mold spores can cause allergic reactions in certain people. And molds don’t even have to be alive to cause an allergic reaction.
There are a number of steps taken by the Dry Star Restoration experts for mold remediation. After being contacted by a customer, they will first conduct an inspection of the property for any visible signs of mold. Mold is usually hidden from plain view but they employ a number of technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources. Next, they will apply a number of containment procedures to prevent the spread of the mold in the property. These include the use of negative air chambers, physical barriers, and negative air pressure to prevent the mold spores from spreading while they are performing the cleanup process.
They will then use specialized filtration equipment to capture the mold spores hanging in the air. These include the use of “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuum equipment. Next, they will apply antimicrobial and antifungal treatments to get rid of mold colonies and to prevent the formation of new colonies. Next, they will clean various items in the property, such as decorative items, furniture, clothing, curtains, and other restorable items that were affected by mold. The final step is the restoration, which may include minor repairs, such as installing new carpets, replacing damaged drywalls and paint, and reconstructing certain areas in the property.
