Basement Water Damage Cleanup in Brownstown Mi
The longer water sits in your home, the more damage occurs. Mold & drywall rot can occur in only 2 days. It's important to act quickly to have a local Brownstown water damage specialist clean it up properly.

Water absorbs into flooring and drywall, and cannot be detected by the human eye. We utilize specialized equipment to see under surfaces to detect wetness.
Insurance companies require that a homeowner act diligently to prevent further damage from water. We take care of this process for you, to ensure you have no liability. We also help you with documentation when it comes time to sell your Brownstown home.
Basement Flood in Brownstown Mi
There are also a number of problems that are physically visible when severe damage has caused mold, such as eczema or blisters on the hands. There are many different types of mold that can occur in your home and not all of them will be from damage caused by the water. Different types of water damage will also cause the different types of mold. Black flood water damage is usually linked to the growth of black mold, which is more toxic. This can make it extremely difficult to create a form of medication to help those that are struggling with mold problems. While mold removal is possible, it is usually best to prevent it from occurring in the first place. This is done to ensure that the water damage is dried within the first 48 hours. You can also use a dehumidifier in your home to help to keep the area cool, since mold prefers warm and moist areas to grow. If your water damage cannot be repaired and dried within 48 hours then you should look at replacing it instead; this will save you a lot of money in the long run. With some items, the only thing that you can do when mold appears is replace it anyway. This is especially the case when it comes to carpets and drywall water damage.
As we have reviewed before, there are three categories of water defined in the IICRC S500, the industry standard for water damage restoration. These categories are determined by the originating source and content/contaminant level of the water. Here we will discuss Category 1 water, the cleanest of the group. Category 1 water originates from a sanitary source, and does not pose any substantial health risk to humans. Some examples of category 1 water include: potable drinking water or bottled water, tap water, water from a broken supply line, such as those bringing fresh water to your refrigerator, sinks, dishwasher, washing machine, and toilets. An important distinction to note is while the water entering the above sources is category 1, it may no longer be category 1 after leaving these fixtures or appliances. Water mitigation, dry-out and restoration of a category 1 water loss is fairly straightforward. Because it is from a sanitary source, we can often save most of the affected materials, as long as we are notified quickly after the loss occurs.
