This is achieved by presenting a flow of dry air straight into wet cavities behind walls, floors, ceilings, or almost every other spot where moisture is captured and inaccessible.

Inspection and Damage Assessment

The entire area must be disinfected, and contaminated materials must be disposed of properly. This all has to be done as per recommended guidelines.
Water Removal with Extraction
Hundreds of gallons of water are removed using our powerful trucked mounted pumps and vacuums during the water removal process. This process needs to be completed as soon as possible to minimize further damage and to expedite the drying process thus preventing mold growth. In many cases, mold is able to develop due to the many organics that are present on which it can feed.
Odor control must be implemented as well as negative pressure on the areas in question. Contaminated air must be removed as well. Walker's uses antimicrobial treatments and removes odors using commercial air scrubbers and fogging equipment These are all things that the normal homeowner has neither the experience nor equipment to implement. Water has the ability to infiltrate many types of building materials. In many cases, mold is able to develop due to the many organics that are present on which it can feed.
Cleaning and Sanitizing
Sewage damage also affects the contents, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. Walker's has been trained and certified in specialized cleaning techniques to be able to restore your belonging to pre-loss condition if possible. The entire affected area and space must be disinfected. If it cannot be disinfected, it must be removed and destroyed. Many materials when subject to a backup can no longer be used. This is why proper cleanup is so important. There are strict systems in place for sewage remediation processes developed by the IICRC. These are all designed to protect the general public as well as the homeowner. In almost all cases sewage backups are covered by the insurance company so there is no need to risk your health by doing this cleanup work yourself. The environmental risk from a spill or leak or backflow/backup of wastewater from a septic system or sewer has a severe environmental impact. This is just not drying the area that is involved in the restoration project and using bleach. There is just too much contamination of materials within a building. Proper cleaning and repair services are paramount. Trust Walker's Restoration and the IICRC certified technicians to do the job properly and get your life, home and commercial business back to normal.
