Water Damage is something that needs to be dealt with quickly and correctly. We provide immediate service in the event of a flood. The sooner the water is removed, the less damage. Improper or incomplete drying can result in a variety of unpleasant consequences, now and well into the future. By having water extracted quickly, you help prevent mold, mildew, and various types of bacteria that are present in standing water, your carpet, and padding. Fetz uses the truck mount extraction with high powered extraction to remove all water. For smaller flooded areas we also provide services with the use of the weighted extraction which allows us to extract water out of the carpet and pad without pulling back the carpet and requiring repair. Once we have finished the extraction process, our commercial drying equipment will remove any and all moisture that remains in the wet carpet and padding as well as wet drywall & other materials which develop mold easily without proper drying. We will even replace the padding if needed! We can handle all insurance claims no matter how large or small with an A-Z process, working hand in hand with your insurance company to cause less work & stress for you!

Why Use a Professional Restoration Company?
If damage was not cleaned or dried properly by a professional, or waiting too long (approx. 24hrs), you run the high risk of doing extensive damage. This would require the removal and replacement of damaged wallboard and wall insulation to avoid indoor air quality problems later. Wallboard acts like a sponge, drawing moisture up above water level. It becomes very fragile if it stays wet for long and will fall apart when bumped. Even if the area is dried out, contaminants may have gotten up behind the drywall and dried inside. Microorganisms can penetrate deep into soaked porous materials, such as wood and drywall, and continue to damage these materials long after the overflow event is over. Even after everything has dried out, these microorganisms can later be released into the air and trigger allergic reactions when inhaled. Wooden wall studs and sills probably won’t need to be replaced if they are thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, and allowed to dry properly. Since the studs and sills will be covered by new wallboard and painted, they will be removed from direct human contact.
The drying out process can take several weeks in an enclosed area such as a basement or crawl space. The growth of microorganisms will continue as long as the humidity remains high. If the damaged area is not cleaned and dried out properly, a musty odor (signifying the continued growth of microorganisms) can remain long after the water damage or sewage overflow.
