MHS Restoration Water Damage Cleanup Process

If you want to minimize the damage that can occur, including the potential for mold, water damage in your residential or commercial property should be handled quickly, efficiently, and professionally. Our proven cleanup and restoration leaves your property thoroughly and properly cleaned and restored to its pre-water-damage condition – every time.

1. Once onsite, we determine the cause of the water entry, and take immediate steps to stop any more water from entering. Is the flooding from a leaky pipe? An overflowing dishwasher? A burst water heater? An ice dam under the roof? We put into place the best fix for whatever problem has occurred, even if temporary.

2. We assess the extent of flooding and water damage based on how much water has flooded the area and how far or deeply the dampness and moisture has spread into walls, flooring, ceilings and other surfaces such as concrete or hardwood. We then develop an appropriate cleanup and restoration plan.

3. Wherever water damage or flooding has occurred, from the basement to the attic, we take our professional grade equipment and fully extract all standing water. We check unexposed areas as well, such as behind walls and under subfloors, to eliminate all signs of water.

4. Removing water is not enough, however. Our next step is to thoroughly dry the affected area so no dampness remains. If the flooded area is not properly dried, the area may be susceptible to mold and mildew, which can destroy structural components and personal belongings as well as pose a serious health threat to those who live or work in the building.

5. Using safe, approved products, we clean and sanitize whatever the floodwater has touched. This includes floors, walls, ceilings, furnishings, and items that were not completely damaged from the water. Unsalvageable items are removed and properly disposed of. We provide specialized treatment for brick, concrete, hardwood, and other surfaces where water gets into openings and is not otherwise easily dried or cleaned. We also implement decontamination procedures if the water damage was due to potentially biohazardous flooding, such as from an overflowing toilet.

6. If your property has sustained damage, we’ll perform the renovation and finishing services to restore your property to its pre-water-damage condition. You specify your requirements, and we’ll ensure your home or business is restored so that everyone feels safe and comfortable when they return to it.
