Water Damage

Water can soak deeply into building materials even with a small leak quickly leading to damage.  From a minor plumbing fault to a inches of standing water our water damage services have you covered.  Each source of water and extent of flooding presents its own demands in our plan of action for your home or business.  We follow IICRC guidelines (www.iicrc.org) and are ready to tackle everything from Class 1 (little or no wet carpet and only part of a single room affected) all the way to Class 4 (one or more rooms with soaked flooring, water wicking upwards inside walls saturating insulation, and even stone and hardwood saturated).  Category 1 water from clean sources degrades into Category 2 (filled with bacteria and viruses) in as little as 24 hours.  And Category 3 water that’s been in contact with soil or sewage contamination requires extreme sanitation measures from our anti-microbial specialists.

In a single day, just 24 hours, mold and other water damage begins, yet deeply soaked moisture can remain at harmful levels for many weeks. Thoroughly and rapidly drying the entire building and all of its contents are top priority in addition to cleanup and disinfection. We turn those weeks into just a few days, preventing further deterioration and getting your life back to normal much sooner with our experienced and highly trained water damage restoration technicians.  Our water damage removal work proceeds in two main phases.  To extract the water specially-designed vacuum equipment on walls and ceilings as well as floors for an immediate drop in humidity.  Using an extensive set of refrigerant dehumidifiers, industry-specific air movers, and other equipment we complete a thorough structural dry out.  Frequent monitoring keeps everything adjusted and lets us know when the job is done.

Mold Remediation

A fuzzy blotch you might see, or health issues you might notice (such as irritations, allergies, or prolonged flu-like symptoms) may only be revealing part of the picture and require.  Mold is a type of fungus that doesn’t need light to grow and so the problem may be completely hidden from view and require JW Home Care’s licensed mold remediation experts.  They will complete a specific plan and detailed checklist outlining all needed work. Then we proceed in three main, and frequently overlapping, phases.  To guard against spreading spores, allergens, toxins and other contaminants we set up a containment field for all but the smallest of projects.  This includes installing plastic sheeting and setting up negative-pressure exhaust fans along with HEPA air scrubbers.  Second, we perform thorough spore and mold removal via any of several approved methods.  Affected porous materials such as wood and drywall must be removed completely.  Third we guard against re-growth by applying non-toxic mildicide and decontamination procedures such as air duct cleaning and carpet cleaning.

Fire Damage

A wide variety of specialist measures beyond debris haul away and repairs are involved in removing fire and smoke damage.  These major tasks require specialized equipment and skills for fire damage removal, water damage repairs, and smoke and odor removal.  Our highly trained and specialized experts will carefully assess your particular situation and create a tailored recovery plan.

No doubt you’re facing a disturbing scene that includes extensive water and foam from sprinklers and hoses.  With any flooding it requires rapid water extraction and structural drying to prevent further destruction.  Mold abatement plays an important role too.  Smoke, soot, and ash will most likely have traveled far from their source, making their way through even the smallest openings and into unexpected places.  Understanding the special chemistries involved in smoke removal, as well as how to protect the material being cleaned also requires specialized training.  The removal must be prompt and thorough in order to permanent staining and other discoloration.  In addition to cleaning possessions and building surfaces, it’s also necessary to remove odors in various cavities beyond the damaged areas.  Our specialized equipment takes care of that.
