Fire and Flood Damage Restoration
The consequences of ineffective restoration – including possible health effects – are far too great to leave damage improperly restored.
Fire and Flood Damage Restoration
Residential / Commercial / Government / Institutional
Restoring your home after water damage is a frustrating experience. Fortunately, natural disasters don’t occur every day, and chances are you’ll never have to deal with water damage from rising water or flooding. However, simple plumbing leaks or overflows are far more common. Although dealing with water damage may seem simple (mop or wet vacuum; fans used to promote evaporation), what is not considered is the degree to which water can penetrate into structural cavities and assemblies, creating trapped pockets of saturation.
Often it is to late before property owners become aware of the on-going effect of this trapped water on structural and contents materials, which may include: discoloration, warping, splitting, delamination, and musty odor and mold growth.
Most property owners are not familiar with the essential steps and tactics for proper restoration, and naturally, they have many questions. That’s where the certified water restoration professional comes in. He or she will be qualified through formal training and experience to remove excess water efficiently, to promote efficient evaporation and to establish the dehumidification conditions necessary to stop on-going damage. Moreover, they can document the return of your property and contents to normal conditions to ensure that future problems will not be experienced.
Scope Of Services
Fire will engulf anything in its path, destroying homes and possessions in an instant. After a fire, the damages left behind are numerous. The water or foam used to extinguish a fire creates an entirely separate set of problems, along with the residue of soot, ashes, and smoke damage. Puff backs from a faulty oil burner can create similar issues. Regardless of the source of damage, QMI can clean, repair, and rebuild it.
