Flood Cleanup Services - Professional Solutions for Restoring Your Property from Water Damage

The Need for Flood Cleanup in MA is More Common Than You Think – Massachusetts Residents Need Flood Cleanup Services Year in and Year out for Flood Damage

Flood cleanup in Massachusetts is more common than you think and finding the right Massachusetts flood cleanup company is critical to getting your life, and business, back to normal after a flood disaster strikes. You simply can’t hire any old flood damage cleanup and restoration company for emergency flood cleanup services and be confident the situation is handled, far too much can go wrong in the cleanup process. We take it for granted sometimes that floods can happen to anyone because the weather in Massachusetts isn’t as extreme as it is in other areas of the country, but it can be quite severe and damaging during periods of extreme seasonal storms, and prolonged rainfall. It might not happen often, but it happens more than most would expect in Massachusetts. Those living near or having businesses near rivers have long experienced flooding all throughout Massachusetts, but those living a distance from rivers, ponds and lakes rarely experience flooding from storms. But that’s not the only sources of flooding in Massachusetts, many flood disaster events happen because of sewer systems being overrun by excessive rain in a short period of time, or extensive saturation of the soils from groundwater due to the same. Basement flooding is one of the biggest flood cleanup disasters we see in Massachusetts, or anywhere for that matter. In some regions outside of Massachusetts where basements are uncommon, swelling of the water table will simply have a flooding of a crawl space or main living floor which can be catastrophic. No matter the time of year in Massachusetts, flooding is a risk, heavy rains and summer storms lead to flash flooding and overburdened waterways. And did you know that in areas of the country that experience harsh winters even ice and snow thawing events can lead to catastrophic flood damage disasters that necessitate the need for professional flood cleanup and Massachusetts is no exception.

“I’ve never used a restoration company before but my insurance company recommended them. I called SOS and the entire team was very friendly.”


You Need Professional Flood Cleanup From a Certified Flood Cleanup Company That Handles Massachusetts Flood Damage Events Regularly

Flood cleanup in Massachusetts often requires much more than just water extraction and dehumidification. When it comes to flood disaster cleanup, especially in areas where seasonal high humidity can be an issue, you need to thoroughly inspect all surfaces for any presence of mold growth, test all materials for moisture content during and after the dry out, and more importantly, inspect those areas that you can’t see, such as under the subfloor, and behind sheetrock and paneled walls. At SOS Rescue Restoration, we utilize state of the art testing equipment such as moisture meters and thermal imagers to see that which you can’t see. Remember, It’s always what you can’t see that causes all the trouble later. Simply extracting the water and drying out the visible surfaces just won’t do. Taking shortcuts here may lead to severe consequences down the road such as potentially harmful mold and mildew growth that can be devastating to all involved, especially those that are immunocompromised, are susceptible to allergens, or have other chronic illnesses and conditions that can be worsened by the presence of these dangerous pathogens.

Flood Cleanup in Massachusetts Should be Handled by Professionals Because There is an Associated Health Risk When it Comes to Flood Water cleanup Because as a Category 3, or also Known as Black Water Potentially Harbors Harmful Bacteria and Viruses

There are many things Massachusetts homeowners and commercial property maintenance personnel can do themselves, but flood cleanup is not one of them. Flood cleanup of category 3 water or black water as it is also known requires professionals with the proper equipment and disinfecting solutions to ensure the mitigation of health risks from a variety of dangerous pathogens often present in flood waters whether from river, ocean and ground water swelling or flash floods. Pathogens like Hepatitis, Norovirus, HIV, Tuberculosis, West Nile, Tetanus, and More can all be present in black water as most flooding leads to intrusion of sewage from one source or another via septic systems and leach fields, sewer systems, holding tanks, underground plumbing, etc. as well as pathogens present in other forms of contaminated water sources. When it comes to flood cleanup and emergency flood cleanup just after an event, the process is best left to professionals that can not only extract the flood water but dehumidify and disinfect the environment to keep further pathogens from growing like potentially dangerous mold and mildew. In fact, even conditions present during and after a category 2 flood event requiring flood cleanup at your home or business can lead to that category 2 water event quickly evolving into a category 3 class flood damage event.

Flood Cleanup Including Emergency Flood Cleanup Services in Massachusetts – Seasonality adds to the Challenges of Continued Harmful Mold Growth and That’s bad News

The presence of mold, or even the suspicion of mold in your residential or commercial property can be a frightening prospect. It’s widely known that exposure to mold, even minimally, can affect the health of everyone exposed. For those of us who are immunocompromised, mold exposure can be a life sentence. For those of us who are healthy, it could be the tipping point of sending us into illness. With so many types of mold, how are you to tell if what you smell or see is harmful?

“Any visible mold should be removed, no matter what its color or species,” says Tina Reponen, PhD, professor of environmental health at the University of Cincinnati. “In a healthy building, you don’t have visible mold.”

Of course, visually identifying mold growth or detecting a smell or exhibiting allergic or mold-related symptoms are all strong clues to the presence of a problem. Removal by professionally trained technicians is essential. In fact if mold is visible, testing isn’t even recommended by the CDC and EPA as all forms of mold can be harmful to your health depending on certain biological factors that are somewhat unique individual to individual.

“Don’t be fooled by people telling you that your mold is fine or is the good kind of mold, it simply isn’t true”

Understanding Damage Restoration Services

Sometimes it’s confusing trying to understand whether you need a cleanup, repair, mitigation, remediaiton or restoration services company in Massachusetts. let us explain some of the services to better help.

Mold Removal and Remediation for Your MA Home Or Business

So which is it? Mold removal or mold remediation, or mold abatement? Often these terms like many in the restoration industry are commonly interchanged when they actually mean different things. Mold removal is the act of removing the mold from the property or area so that the presence of mold no longer exists above normal, natural levels. Mold remediation is the process of creating and implementing a mold abatement plan that will actually address the underlying reason the excessive mold was able to proliferate and become a health risk. Remediation by definition includes the mold removal, and abatement process.

Fire damage restoration and fire damage cleanup are essential processes following a fire incident to restore a property to its pre-fire condition. These processes encompass a series of systematic steps and the involvement of professionals with expertise in fire damage mitigation.

The initial phase of fire damage restoration is the cleanup process. This entails the removal of debris, ash, soot, and any remaining firefighting chemicals from the affected areas. Thorough cleaning is essential not only for aesthetic reasons but also to prevent further damage caused by corrosive residues. Highly specialized equipment, such as HEPA vacuums and chemical sponges, is often used to ensure a deep and effective cleaning process. The cleanup phase also includes assessing and addressing any immediate safety concerns, such as securing the property and shutting off utilities to prevent further damage or accidents.

Once the cleanup is completed, the focus shifts to the restoration phase. Fire damage restoration involves repairing, rebuilding, and restoring the structural and cosmetic elements of the property. This may include replacing damaged roofing, drywall, insulation, electrical systems, and plumbing. Restoration professionals work to ensure that the property not only regains its functionality but also its aesthetic appeal. In some cases, restoration may involve repainting, refinishing, or replacing fixtures and furnishings to bring the property back to its pre-fire condition. Additionally, restoration teams may address issues related to water damage caused by firefighting efforts, as water damage often accompanies fire damage. Overall, fire damage restoration is a comprehensive process aimed at returning the property to a safe and habitable state while minimizing the physical and emotional toll of a fire incident.

Understanding the difference between water damage remediation, water damage repair, and water damage restoration

This one gets a little tricky because the there are some nuances between the term repair and remediation. In a nutshell, the term repair is often used to encompass the cleanup, demo, and restoration phases of a fire damaged property. You can however have a repair that means different things. Is it a get by repair, or is it a full restoration bringing the property back to its pre-loss condition. In general we would say that a fire damage remediation plan includes the cleanup, dryout, demo, and treatment as necessary, so that the restoration of the property back to it’s pre-loss condition can occur. Fire damage repair projects almost always include water damage repair services as well as water and other flame-retardants are used to put the fire out.
