Should you have a flood or leak that has led to mold, by calling the professionals the following might occur:

If you call a professional, like Flood Busters®, a trained technician can arrive at your door the day you call. We understand that you may be unsure of your situation and that is why our team offers FREE WATER INSPECTIONS, just mention the phrase when you call. The trained technicians will inspect the water damage mold area and surrounding areas with special equipment. Throughout your cleanup, the technicians will keep a moisture log and other important documentation for you and your insurance company. Once they have determined which areas need special attention, they will place equipment in the proper areas to ensure the quickest cleanup.
2. Fix the Leak
We may discover that the water damage mold came from a leak. If that is the case the leak will need to be fixed prior to beginning the dry out. Otherwise you will be continuing to dry out an area that is continuously exposed to water, costing you unnecessary $$. We have a team of plumbers that can fix the leak so we can get you and your home back to normal as soon as possible!
3. Extract Moisture
So now that the leak is fixed, our team of experts will extract any standing water, if there is any. Sometimes the water soaks into the surrounding materials (cabinets, floors, drywall, etc.) and we can skip this step. However, if there is a sufficient amount of standing water it is important to extract this water, otherwise the dry out process and damage will take longer than needed.
5. Water Damage Mold Remediation
Our technicians will contain and remove water damage mold as soon as possible.
4. Dry Out
Once the area is inspected, the leak is fixed and the water is extracted. the dry out process can begin. The dry out process is very important and the technicians will need to come back to check the water damage areas to ensure that they are drying. When they come back, they will use their special equipment to read what they moisture levels are in each affected area and log it. The dry out process length depends on the amount of water that caused the damage, what was affected and the areas that were affected.
