Mid Maryland Cleaning & Restoration will act quickly to limit your exposure time. Our cleanup service is designed around our 5 step process:
1. Assess the Water Damage Repairs Required
We immediately determine what type of water has caused the damage as it will determine how Mid-Maryland Cleaning & Restoration attacks the water damage restoration emergency. Moisture meters and infrared cameras allow Mid-Maryland Cleaning & Restoration to quickly locate the source and location of wet surfaces.
2. Extract and Dry Immediately
The EPA advises that you begin water damage restoration within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth. Mid-Maryland Cleaning & Restoration uses high-powered water extraction equipment combined with industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers to ensure fast and efficient drying. Timely intervention of our mitigation services will keep contamination to an absolute minimum.
3. Odor Removal
Even clean tap water when left standing will begin to generate unpleasant odors after just a few hours. Using advanced thermo-foggers and EPA approved botanically based disinfectants, Mid-Maryland Cleaning & Restoration will neutralize particles as small as 50 microns. The penetrating fog reaches into cracks and voids touched by water and moisture, and leaves them fresh and odor free.
4. Mold Remediation if Needed
If any sign of mold is detected, Mid-Maryland Cleaning & Restoration begins a four-step mold removal process to eradicate growth on surfaces and in the air. First, we seal off the contaminated area and establish negative air pressure. Second, we remove the affected materials, such as moldy drywall and particleboard, or employ the dry and sand method for wood studs and framing. Third, we provide a Hepa Vac treatment to remove all unseen bacteria and settled spores from furniture and household items, and in crawl spaces and HVAC systems. Lastly, every surface is disinfected with negative ion technology to remove minute airborne particles.
