Rancho Bernardo Leak Detection
Water and even excessive moisture are likely to cause progressive damage, even major damage if not tracked down and corrected soon enough. If you’re noticing damp spots, warm spots, or other suggestions of a water leak call in Cutting Edge’s leak detection services before it becomes a serious problem.
We use the latest and best electronic leak detection equipment to track down exactly where the problem is coming from. Our arsenal also includes thermal imaging digital cameras that literally see tiny changes in temperature that can lead us directly to the water leak regardless of its cause.
Flood Damage Removal Rancho Bernardo
Although flooding from storms are rare in our area, flood damage removal from natural or artificial causes (such as burst pipes or sewage backups) is largely the same. We start with our fast pump-out followed by flooding-specific sanitation and odor removal processes. That is followed by our water damage removal processes of water extraction and dry out.
Even if it’s from a small plumbing leak or tub overflow, don’t underestimate the importance of thorough water removal. Water penetrates deeply into carpets and building materials, and pools in hidden cavities. Mopping and wet-vacuuming simply aren’t enough. The remaining water will take a long time to completely evaporate, and in the meantime can cause lots of damage. Problems can range from odors and mold (actually a potentially serious health problem) to discoloration, warping, and splitting, all the way to structural damage. Our truck-mounted equipment provides the best in water extraction.
Building dry-out is the final step in water damage removal before actual repairs can be completed. Any remaining moisture can still cause mold and other problems, so rapid dry out is also critical in mitigating future problems. Opening windows or using exhaust fans just don’t do the job fast enough, so we also have special equipment for this process. Once everything is thoroughly dry we can perform any needed structural, interior, or exterior finish repairs.
Fire Damage Repair in Rancho Bernardo
Even a small fire can be overwhelming, yet demanding of prompt and thorough attention. Call in the Cutting Edge Restoration experts for the many crucial steps involved.
Security and Safety Rapid Response
The first step is to seal off all openings for security and the safety of all involved. We’ll then identify and document the locations of all damage, including that of furniture and possessions. We’ll begin treating what can be salvaged, and remove everything else.
Smoke and Soot Damage
Besides repairing the fire damage itself, it’s vital to remove all smoke and soot and then deodorize the building and it’s contents. Otherwise compounds will penetrate deeply to where it cannot be removed, leaving you with odors that can linger for years. Properly dealing with the various types of smoke and soot requires extensive training and experience like you’ll only find with truly professional restoration specialists such as Cutting Edge. Our fire damage repair services also include cleaning possessions and furniture to avoid corrosive damage and smoke odors
