Stormwater Cleanup – GET RESTORATION EXPERTS follows a proven method to ensure a thorough and proper cleanup of your property. We start by taking all necessary safety precautions, such as shutting down electrical power and using hazard gear. We locate the point of entry of water and take whatever steps are necessary to stop further water from entering your property. Next we inspect both the building interior and exterior to assess the full extent of the damage from the storm or other disaster, and develop a plan for cleanup and restoration. Depending on the level of contaminants that may be present in the water, we assign a categorization, typically Category 3 for stormwater, as it is the most dangerous and can cause serious illness and even death. Using professional-grade equipment and submersible pumps, we extract the water directly to our truck so it can be disposed of properly. To dry the area as quickly as possible, we use high-powered air movers, heat panels, and even open windows. This step also includes checking difficult-to-reach areas—behind walls and under floors—for and residual moisture, and placement of additional specialized equipment to test for remaining dampness and humidity. If there is a potential for a mold infestation, which is another health concern for building occupants, we treat the area to ensure no mold will grow. With input from home and property owners, we identify fixtures, furnishings, and belongings that can be salvaged, and remove them offsite for proper cleaning and restoration. Those items that cannot be salvaged are removed and properly disposed of. We clean all surfaces and items with safe, effective products, ensuring thorough decontamination and sanitization.
