Water Removal, Dehumidification and Building Drying
High winds, floods, hurricanes, rainstorms and pipe breaks can result in mild to severe water damage. Such damage can range from structural deterioration to biological contamination like mold and mildew. Water makes wood swell, buckle and rot, sheetrock lose rigidity and strength, wiring corrode, metal rust, paint peel, books mold, wall coverings mildew and much more.
It’s not good for property to remain wet for long. Secondary moisture-related property degeneration can also occur when high ambient humidity acts upon undamaged areas and their contents.
American professionals can stop and reverse many of these problems through prompt implementation of deep drying techniques and ozone treatment.
First we seal off unaffected areas from those under recovery and board up damaged areas. Then, using industry-grade dehumidifiers, we remove water from wallboard, insulation, concrete block, wood floors, wood or metal studs, plaster and other structural components.
American knows how important your property is to you. We respond quickly and start recovery immediately. Our Decades of experience and the proper equipment can significantly reduce your recovery costs -- sometimes restoring a property from total devastation in just days. Our technicians know when and where to move dehumidification equipment to reduce drying time. We install high-speed air movers to create airflow across walls, carpets, pads, and furniture, speeding evaporation. And we install ozone generators to arrest growth of bacteria, fungi, mildew and other harmful organisms.
We have the proper equipment to do more than just restore the structure and cosmetics of your damaged property -- we restore the indoor environmental quality.
Necessary repairs may then begin when the area is determined to be free of excess moisture.
