When there’s water pouring onto your property, the last thing you want to do is wait for help.

Water damage comes in a number of different forms, but at Rewind Emergency Services we can handle everything from leaking appliances to natural disasters!

Our experience in the water damage restoration industry has taught us that the aftercare of any water damage situation can be just as important as the initial response. If the water damage is not contained and dealt with swiftly, then it can seep further into your home or business, causing new and ongoing damage. Water can be absorbed by any porous surface, which doesn’t just mean your carpeting and upholstery, but also wood, laminates, plaster, and even certain types of stone. It can weaken a structure by rotting wood, or saturating the plaster of your ceiling until it collapses under the weight. Worse, saturated materials are a prime breeding ground for mold, fungus, and bacteria. Damaging mold, mildew, and other harmful pathogens can take over your property in as little as 72 hours following the initial event of saturation – which means the clock is ticking!

Rewind Emergency Services has been in the water damage restoration business long enough to know that in many cases, if the water damage is treated early and the restoration team on the scene has the proper training and equipment, then the onset of mold can be prevented. We can provide a complete water extraction, which gives your valuable possessions the best possible chance of recovery. If you find water damage on your property, or water that is about to damage your property, contact the experts at Rewind Emergency Services. We’ll be your first step on the road to complete restoration of your property back to its original state.

Water damage comes in different forms, and one of the most unpleasant involves contamination by sewage. The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) classifies sewage-contaminated water as Category 3, or as presenting grossly unsafe conditions. Category 3 water can come in from many different sources, including backed up sewage pipes and outside sources like lakes, streams, and sideways-flowing runoff. Sometimes it is difficult to judge just where the water is coming from. Flooding can be caused by heavy rains, but also by broken outside pipes, a breakdown at a water treatment plant, or sewage treatment facility. Category 3 water presents serious health risks to anyone who comes in contact with it. All of our service technicians are IICRC certified in all of the safety and sanitation measures necessary to remove sewage and other types of contaminated water, sanitize your property, and leave it clean and restored. If you suspect that the water leaking onto your property has been contaminated, call the experts at Rewind Emergency Services right away, and do not attempt to remediate the situation yourself.

Water Damage FansAnother primary concern, even when dealing with the relatively clean water that comes with a burst pipe, or flood of that nature, is that any rise in humidity can encourage the growth of mold, fungi, and bacteria. Mold is part of nature’s recycling center, important to the process of breaking down organic matter, but it can wreak havoc on your carpeting, upholstery, clothing, and any unsealed surface it comes into contact with. Mold can set up a new colony in very little time, releasing microscopic spores into the closed environment of your building. Once mold has gotten a foothold and released its spores, it is only a matter of time before it spreads – even into areas that were unaffected by the saturation event. Kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and the spaces between walls and under floors are particularly vulnerable to the moisture-craving mold colonies, and they will settle in wherever they can. Once a house has become mold infested, the spores can cause fairly serious health hazards for anyone who spends time inside those walls. Mold has a distinctive musty odor, and can cause allergic reactions as well as serious health problems. If you suspect that mold has invaded your home or business, call the experts at Rewind Emergency Services right away. We are the mold removal experts!

When we receive a water damage alert, we will send in a team right away to assess the scene and begin containment. It is important to contact a water damage restoration professional because we are trained to handle these scenarios quickly and safely. There can be all sorts of hidden hazards on a scene with severe water damage, including electrical hazards from downed power lines or appliances, as well as water-borne pathogens like bacteria, fungi, and chemical runoff. Any time your property is experiencing an influx of water from an unknown source, it is extremely important that you not approach the water if at all possible to avoid it. Contaminated water can contain disease-causing bacteria, parasites, and human waste. We also clean up water damage caused when a fire has been extinguished. This type of damage presents its own challenges due to being mixed with ash and soot. No matter what type of water damage emergency you are facing, call Rewind Emergency Services for immediate, experienced assistance.

Our experience allows us to formulate an efficient solution for your unique circumstances, which will be carried out using only the latest, most effective processes and technologies.
