Water damage restoration services go beyond stopping leaks or removing standing water. Structural drying means removing water saturation from your home’s hard surfaces. Our goal at Bill Howe Restoration and Flood is to dry your structure as fast as possible with the least amount of demolition to prevent any further damage. When drying your home’s hard surfaces, we will perform moisture readings to determine the extent of the affected area and how much water saturation remains. Sometimes in order to perform water extraction it is necessary to remove at least part of the drywall from the frame and remove any affected insulation. Other times, small holes can be utilized to dry wall-cavities.
Mold remediation is important to maintain indoor air quality. Removing moisture from your home reduces the chance of mold growth. Bill Howe Restoration and Flood is an industry leader in mold control following specific industry standards to protect your home. The first step in remediation is to perform a visual inspection. We use top-of-the-line equipment such as negative air machines and air scrubbers to remove potentially dangerous mold spores from the environment. Once we have are confident that the problem is resolved, we will schedule a third-party air quality inspector to confirm that the mold is gone from the home.
Water Damage Water damage comes in three distinct categories. Our San Diego water restoration team is able to categorize your water loss based on the length of time the water has affected the structure, the temperature of the affected materials, and assessing pre-existing conditions. With this knowledge, your water damage can easily be remediated, and your home or commercial building restored to its original state using extraction and evaporation.
1. Category 1: Water damage refers to “clean” or “fresh” water and can be from sources like water shutoff valves, toilet tank leaks, and under sink water filtration systems. Category 1 does not pose an immediate health risk to occupants, but can quickly escalate to category 2 or 3.
2. Category 2: Referred to as “grey” water, category 2 loss contains chemical or biological contaminants that could be dangerous to occupants. Sources of greywater include water heaters, toilet overflows (where no waste is present), and laundry overflows.
3. Category 3: Known as “black” water, category 3 is severe water loss and is harmful to individuals. Blackwater can originate from the main sewer overflows, storm waters, and/or standing waters and ground surface waters. Category 3 contaminated water contains unsanitary bacteria, fungi, pathogens, and can cause serious illness requiring specialized containment and mitigation.
There are many things inside a home or building that can produce awful odors. An enclosed area has low levels of oxygen leading to poor air renewal and the accumulation of odor-producing compounds. Odor can come from tobacco smoke, pets and other sources in your home or business. In order to combat indoor odors, ozone treatment, an effective bacterial agent, was created. It works by destroying compounds that produce odor and is highly effective in preventing bacterial growth and mildew. Portable ozone generators can deodorize an entire building.
Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration
Restoration methods following fire or smoke damage vary based on the specifics of the blaze. In the case of smoke damage, the primary issue becomes smoke and odor control. In these cases, we apply ozone to control the smoke odor and continue to work until the smoke smell is completely gone. For homes that have been directly affected by a fire, the restoration process tends to be much more intricate. In homes where severe damage, such as loss of windows and walls, has occurred, we offer board-up services as one of the first steps.
A burst pipe in your home requires immediate emergency plumbing service. A Bill Howe technician can guide you through the process of shutting off your water to reduce damage to your home until the technician arrives.
