It can happen to anyone at the most inconvenient time. A busted water line, a flood or damage from a severe storm can create havoc on our home and personal property. It is never fun when this happens and when it does, the more time passes, the more damage it causes. It is imperative that you get service as soon as possible because every minute counts.
We specialize in emergency response as well as complete reconstruction services. Ocean Tower has IICRC certified professionals that respond quickly and use advanced equipment to accelerate the drying process and to minimize damage. We will provide you not only with a plan of action for the restoration of your home but also with the required documentation for your insurance company. It begins with contact to our 24-hour service. Then our qualified techs respond quickly and do an inspection and assessment. Then we safely begin the water extraction, drying and dehumidification. Finally, after the cleaning we achieve restoration.
One of the biggest concerns of water damage is preventing the growth of mold. We can help with mold prevention by:
- using moisture meters and infrared cameras to search for hidden damage
- making recommendations if materials need to be replaced or repaired
- removing contaminated materials
You never want to have a situation when you are dealing with water damage, but if you do Ocean Tower will be there. We are your water damage company in any situation: frozen pipe, busted pipe, busted hot water heater, sink overflow, storm damage, water damage, roof leak, fridge leak, washing machine overflow, toilet overflow, hail damage, wind damage etc
Mold is found both indoors and outdoors. Indoors, mold grows in places with a lot of moisture, especially around roof leaks, windows, doors, pipes, flooding or condensation. It can grow on almost any surface or fabric and it can look like spots in different colors and sometimes can smell musty.
The first step in addressing the mold is to find and stop the source of the leak or the moisture that leads to bacterial growth. Plumbers and roofers have the proper skills to make sure the issues are resolved correctly. It is also important to call a certified mold removal contractor to properly remove and treat all surrounding areas. Some people have the misconception that mold can be scrubbed away or treated with bleach, but these methods only help spread the spores when attacked and if a proper containment area is not set up, it can lead to a more extensive damage with time.
A few tips to keep in mind when having mold issues:
- Don’t touch it
- Fix the source as soon as possible to prevent any additional damage
- Don’t spray mold with bleach or any other household cleaning products
- Don’t paint over visible mold
- Have a professional mold inspection and testing performed
