How to minimize the damage
Because we aware of the gravity of the situation, we have an emergency technician team standing by to be dispatched immediately in case of flooding. Until our crew reaches your home or office facility, our representative will contact you and help you:
- Locate the source and stop the water (if possible)

If the situation permits it, you should remove all high valuable and moisture-sensitive items from the affected room. To prevent permanent rust stains on the furbishing, you should place aluminum foils under the legs of furniture that is too heavy to move from the flooded location. Do not attempt to remove small electric devices from the areas with excess water unless you are 100% certain it’s safe to enter the premises.

Water damage restoration
Flood damage repair is more complex than it looks and our technicians have the experience and tools to detect and address the hotspots with dangerous levels of moisture that are prone to mold and mildew. When moisture-sensitive assets are soaked for more than 48 hours, the chances of developing mold increase exponentially.
Take note that mold is not a pretentious fungi and it can thrive in many settings, including carpet, drywall and upholstery. Therefore, if the humidity is not restored to optimal levels in less than 48 hours, you will have a very persistent mold issue on your hands.
