Santa Paula’s Fast Response Water Damage Removal (805) 285-7054
Complete Water Damage Services in Santa Paula, California
Needless to say flood restoration begins with water removal. But even without any sewage or mud issues, that must be accomplished with close attention to sanitation and careful disinfection. Even tap water will be teaming with bacteria, fungi, and viruses after about a day. So let our experts keep everyone safe and healthy. Next, it’s critical to remove every last bit of dampness as quickly as possible. After soaking in deeply excess moisture causes progressive deterioration, such as drywall disintegrating and wood swelling, cracking, and warping. That can become serious after just a few days, and mold can get going in as little as 24 hours. Surfaces may feel dry, yet deep-down moisture can take weeks to evaporate with only simple ventilation.
So our Santa Paula water damage restoration services typically go through the following stages.

Professional Fire Damage Restoration
Few things are more traumatic than a home fire. In addition to demolition and fire damage repair for direct destruction, you will most likely need water damage restoration as a result of the firefighting efforts. Additionally, smoke and odor removal must be taken very seriously and are in fact technically very challenging. Each blaze creates thousands of different chemicals, with the mix depending on the type of fire. The resulting smoke and soot will contain hundreds of toxic and corrosive chemicals as well as numerous odor-causing compounds. Removal must not only be thorough, it has to happen before those compounds sink in too deeply. If that happens you’ll can be stuck with lingering building odors and have to discard belongings you could otherwise have kept.
Water Damage In Santa Paula, California? We Can Help 24/7
Our mold remediation specialists begin with a careful assessment of your particular situation, followed by extensive isolation precautions before actual mold removal begins. That prevents spreading the problem, and more importantly protects you and your family (or employees) against the spread of allergens and potentially very harmful toxins. We’ll then apply mildicide to further guard against spread, and neutralize any remaining musty odors. Unless the cause is obvious, you may also want to take advantage of our advanced leak detection service to track down any plumbing or building problems.
Qualifications and Certifications
Even though fast response is important, when choosing a flood company in Santa Paula you need to consider their qualifications. For starters, don’t waste time on anyone who contacts you first — they’re likely scam artists or “flood chasers.” You want a well-established local company with a 24 hour emergency hotline. In the worst case everything you own could be at stake. So remain calm and stay focused. The few minutes it takes to double-check licenses, insurance, and references is time very well spent.
Although the EPA does not set standards for mold removal, all such work must follow OSHA, Santa Paula, Ventura County, and California regulations. Flood Masters follows all requirements and guidelines to the letter in all of our services. You should also insist on certified technicians such as our own for all restoration work. The leading non-profit agencies are the Cleaning and Restoration Association (CRA) and the international leader the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC).
Storm & Wind Damage
Flooding and mudslides are often accompanied by high winds, so we’re also ready to meet your storm damage repair needs. That could be anything from debris cleanup to major water damage restoration and flood damage repair.
Pack Out Services
Our restoration services include treating furniture and other possessions as well as the building itself. That often involves on-site pre-treatment (simply carrying some items can force contaminants in even deeper) then moving belongings to our facility for treatment under controlled conditions and secure storage. Of course we’ll provide a detailed inventory and return everything to exactly where you want it.
Leak Detection & Repair
Often small leaks are hard to track down. They could be from a minor plumbing failure, deteriorated window caulking, or a leaky roof. And any symptoms can be quite far from the source. Although hidden from sight, leaks cause progressive harm and frequently hidden mold growth. It’s no longer necessary to put up with the disruption and repair costs of someone making multiple holes to track down the source. Our experienced leak detection technicians use the latest in electronic instruments to pinpoint the right spot.
