Huntington Beach, California Fire and Water Damage Services

In need of fire or flood services in Huntington Beach?  It doesn’t take a major blaze or knee-deep basement flood to need professional restoration.  Our water damage restoration and fire damage restoration specialists are ready 24 hours a day to prevent further destruction and get your home or business life back to normal as quickly as possible.  Their specialist expertise includes mold removal, sewage removal, smoke, and odor removal.

Without an expert’s choice of the right procedures and specialized equipment, secondary damage sets in quickly.  Smoke discolors some materials immediately, others in just a few hours.  And there’s just a 1-2 day window to prevent fire odors from becoming permanent.  Even minor flooding and leaks lead to mold, destroyed drywall, warped and rotting wood, and so on in that same window of opportunity for prevention.  Our certified cleaning and restoration technicians can stop that progressive harm in its tracks.  That’s why we provide services 24/7/365 for Huntington Beach homes and businesses.

Fire Damage Repair and Restoration in Huntington Beach

Just looking at the scene of destruction after even a small fire feels overwhelming.  But there’s even more damage and concerns than you can see.  Fire may have made its way inside walls and smoke and soot reach some surprising places, often quite far from the blaze itself.  Invisible contaminants linger in the air, and firefighting water and foam are ready to create biohazards such as mold and cause their own further destruction.

Our highly trained fire damage restoration teams are well prepared to take care of all that.

After securing the building with tarp overs, board ups, and shoring our crews get to work on debris cleanup and repairs.  Our fire damage restoration experts run air scrubbers and attend to specialized cleaning.  Soda and dry-ice “blasting” equipment quickly and thoroughly removes smoke, soot, and char from building surfaces.  And our water damage restoration specialists complete drying and mold remediation.  Finally, our crews complete repairs and reconstruction, hauling away all wastes and debris.

Smoke and Odor Removal

Whether smoke, mold, decay, or sewage many odors come from beyond accessible surfaces.  If bad smells remain after cleaning and using microscopic HEPA air filters and ventilation, our smoke and odor removal specialists bring in ozone generators.  These units produce an ecologically friendly gas that penetrates into porous materials and makes its way through the tiniest of openings.  Ozone safely breaks apart odor-causing compounds, then completely dissipates.

Huntington Beach Water and Flood Damage Restoration

Small leaks lead to progressive, often hidden, damage that needs repair.  With major flooding damage prevention is our watchword.  Water quickly reaches past surfaces and into the structure, and begins progressive destruction.  Even with extra ventilation that can go on for weeks before natural evaporation is complete, especially in humid Huntington Beach locations.  So that means getting everything thoroughly dry, removing every last bit of excess moisture that’s made its way deeply into building materials as quickly as possible.  After bulk water removal, our powerful water extraction gear pulls surface water out of floors, walls, and ceilings.  That lowers humidity, reducing the likelihood of mold and speeding further drying.  An array of structural dry out equipment then pulls out every last bit of dampness within just a couple of days.  Meanwhile our other certified technicians have been taking care cleaning and disinfecting.

Flood Cleanup and Sewage Removal

Natural flooding and sewage backups bring major health hazards that call for our microbial remediation specialists.  Sewage extraction must be accompanied by immaculate cleaning and disinfection, with the affected area isolated to prevent airborne spread.  Strict regulations apply to transporting such wastes through Huntington Beach streets and on to proper disposal.

Recovery, Repair, and Reconstruction

Our technicians and skilled crews can take care of building contents as well as the building itself.  That includes upholstered and other furniture, appliances, home and business electronics, carpeting and other flooring.  That starts with moving undamaged and recoverable items from a wet or contaminated location.  That may be to an unaffected area at your site, but our pack out services are usually a better solution.  They include carefully packing your belongings and transporting them to our climate-controlled facility for treatment and secure storage.

Our crews are also experienced in fire damage and water damage repair, from replacing drywall or carpeting all the way to complete reconstruction.  Whatever building trades you might need — carpentry, cabinetry, flooring installation, counter tops, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, … — you’ll only have to deal with a single company, Flood Masters.

Mold Remediation

Many species (not just black mold) are highly toxic, and all species spread easily by microscopic spores that float in the air.  So EPA guidelines and OSHA regulations call for special precautions and specific procedures for mold remediation, and urge the use of licensed professionals for all but the smallest problems (https://www.epa.gov/mold/mold-cleanup-your-home).  Our licensed experts follow those regulations and guidelines to the letter.  After identifying the location and type, they’ll isolate the area, set up air filters and exhaust, then complete thorough spore and mold removal with the best-practices for your particular situation.  They’ll decontaminate surrounding areas, and apply non-toxic mildicide as further abatement against re-growth.  All wastes will be sealed for transportation and proper disposal.
