Our Disaster Restoration Services
Mudslide and Water Damage
Heavy rains often lead to a need for water damage repairs, especially after wildfires expose unstable hillsides. Rushing water together with mud and debris typically cause more physical damage than rising floodwaters, including destroying plumbing and wiring.
Even when the scene is a total mess, there’s more to mud than meets the eye. By IICRC standards and guidelines mud as well as any water that’s been in contact with the ground is in the highest bio hazard category, filled with disease-causing bacteria, viruses, and fungi. So our water damage restoration follows removal and cleaning with extensive disinfection, with proper health precautions maintained all along the way.
Likewise proper water restoration involves far more than surface drying. It’s necessary to quickly dry soaked cabinets and remove all excess moisture from inside walls and deep within the structure. That minimizes progressive damage, reducing the need for demolition and reconstruction. But even with aggressive structural dry out our mold remediation services are often necessary after extensive flooding.
Start to finish, our mudslide cleanup and water restoration process may include any of the following.
Our certified fire damage restoration technicians can begin as soon as Ventura County fire officials release the scene. After securing the building we’ll take immediate steps to minimize further deterioration. That includes building dry out from firefighting water to minimize the need for mold removal and other water damage repairs.
Soot and smoke damage can extend far from the blaze itself. Indeed, you may need our smoke odor removal services even if your home or business was spared direct damage by wildfire. Damage such as staining and corrosion can begin in just a few hours and become irreversible within a few days. The same goes for odorous compounds. Our fire restoration processes include specialist smoke removal cleaning for building surfaces, fixtures, furniture, and possessions together with building-wide permanent odor removal.
After those initial mitigation measures we can proceed with fire damage repairs, and demolition and reconstruction of heavily damaged areas.
Overall, our fire restoration process can include any or all of the following.
- tarp over, board up, and structural reinforcement
- debris removal
- emergency repairs and cleaning
- water removal and structural drying
- smoke removal, fire odor removal
- demolition and reconstruction
Stay Prepared, Ventura County
It’s a vicious cycle. Fires expose hillsides so that seasonal heavy rains lead to mudslides. And those rains lead to brush growth for the next wildfire season. Deadly mudslides in Southern California are rare, but justifiably make the headlines. Even so, it’s important to stay prepared for more common events as well. As noted by USA.com, Ventura County experienced 937 extreme weather events during the years 1950 through 2010 (http://www.usa.com/ventura-county-ca-natural-disasters-extremes.htm). That includes on average some 5 flood, 2 high wind, and 1-2 wildfire incidents per year.
