Within minutes, moisture-sensitive materials swell and disfigure. Paper goods are ruined and furniture stains appear on carpeting, which are usually permanent.
Within hours, water is absorbed by the drywall, which then softens. Wooden furniture can become permanently damaged from discoloration and swelling. Carpeting can suffer from delamination, the separation of the carpeting from its backing.
Within days, mold and bacteria begin to grow and flourish. Unpleasant odor may begin to permeate the structure. Hardwood floors are ruined due to warping.
If your home or property has been affected by flood damage or water damage, our water damage restoration team can help repair your property and remove potential sites of mold and moisture.
DRS can prevent the many problems associated with severe water intrusion by using sophisticated drying equipment and techniques to properly address unwanted moisture and prevent mold growth. These advances have replaced the outdated concept of simple water removal combined with opening windows to allow natural drying of the affected structure and its components over a prolonged period of time.
Dehumidifiers and turbo air-movers drive massive amounts of warm, dry air over wet surfaces and walls, helping to prevent mold growth and to dry walls, ceilings, flooring, carpets and other items in hours or several days rather than the weeks upon weeks that natural drying would take.
Though it does not rain often, this is not always a good thing for residents. Lack of daily rain means that many properties and homes are not well-equipped to deal with the rain that does sometimes fall in tremendous amounts in a short period of time. Improper drainage and materials that are prone to absorption can lead to water damage that can often destroy an entire home, raising a need for water restoration services.
Our water restoration team can help you recover from water damage by extracting standing water and drying water-logged materials. Walls, floorboards, furniture, sofas, beds, mattresses, wallpaper, carpet, lighting fixtures, and electrical equipment will all be analyzed for water damage and dried or removed as needed. Structures and materials that can be dried and repaired will be repaired, and structures and materials that have been too water-damaged to be recovered will be replaced.
In addition to removing standing water and water-logged items, our water damage restoration team will check for any hidden water and moisture within walls and under cabinets. Our primary goal is to stabilize and dry your property to prevent mold growth.
To Whom It May Concern: I am writing this letter as a reference for Dan Strong, and the excellent services provided by his company Disaster Restoration Services. I met Dan after a fire at the American Legion Post in Hebron, CT in June 2010. A local electrician had responded to our emergency and he highly recommended Dan. As Post Commander I was in dire need of assistance due to smoke and water damage. Dan responded within one hour and gave us a complete assessment and timeline of what would be required to restore our hall. His advice enabled us to abate further damage that could have resulted from mold and smoke. Following an initial cleaning Don was instrumental in obtaining all of the estimates and services of numerous contractors who were required to put our post back together. His cooperation was extremely helpful and I am very pleased with the overall results. I highly recommend the services Dan and his professional team.
