Cleaning Up Basement Flooding in Amherst Homes
The basement can be a common location for water damage and flood restoration needs in Amherst homes. This lower level can become overwhelmed by standing water and surface moisture concerns when situations like burst pipes or appliance malfunctions occur. Basement flooding can also result from failures that allow for water penetration from the outside. Fast water removal services, including submersible pumps and wet vacuums, can overcome these several inches of pooling liquid to begin critical drying efforts as soon as possible.
Are Ceiling Repairs Needed in Amherst Homes After Leaks?
Burst pipes cause immediate damage to Amherst homes, but slower leaks and roof vulnerabilities can create long-term moisture concerns for properties. Ceiling repairs are often necessary after a longstanding leak from pipes positioned between the floors of your home. Our GC license can help with any reconstruction and repairs your property might require.

Our Restoration Process
Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction
The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.
4. Drying and Dehumidification
We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water which is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.
5. Cleaning and Sanitizing
Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
