Appliances and hot water heaters can break at any time, and cause extensive water damage to homes and businesses. And when a Middletown home experienced a broken water heater, severe water damage occurred in their finished basement. Once our Technicians extracted the standing water, they setup large dehumidifiers and air movers to eliminate excess moisture. They quickly created plastic containment areas to protect belongings from the needed demolition to remove baseboards, walls, insulation, carpets and pad. They carefully removed and discarded basement debris and affected materials, and pressure washed the concrete floors. Once all affected items were eliminated, our skilled Technicians used an anti-microbial spray to prevent any future mold growth. They worked hard to restore the home AND the homeowners peace of mind.
