After a flood, In order to prevent mold growth, it is critical to dry out the affected spaces immediately. Utilizing state of the art drying equipment and airflow maximizing blowing patterns, our team will set up dehumidifiers, air movers, and air scrubbers to completely dry out the affected areas.
During the drying process, our team will regularly perform moisture inspections, ensuring the area is thoroughly dry and that it is safe to remove the drying equipment.

Smoke and Soot are particles that rapidly spread through your home or business after a fire, even fires as small as stovetop fires. Many people never really think about just how dirty smoke is, and how it is capable of covering every surface in your property in the event of a smoke damage.
The Smoke & Soot Damage Cleanup and Restoration Teams at Restoration Dispatched are here to help.
Properly Cleaning Soot
Soot can often be invisible to the naked or untrained eye. Typical household cleaning products are not effective at cleaning smoke or soot from the walls or surfaces. To properly clean soot residue, first you need a soot sponge, which is a specialized cleaning tool design to trap soot from walls, ceilings, and other surfaces.
In addition to soot sponges, you need to HEPA vacuum every floor and surface, as well as clean surfaces with specialized chemicals to remove not only the smoke and soot particles but also the smells left behind.
Removing Smoke Odor
Smoke and soot odor removal is part of the smoke cleanup and restoration process. The smoke cleanup teams at Restoration Dispatched will utilize HEPA filters, with activated charcoal pre-filters to sanitize and clean the air in your home or business. Additionally, we will utilize negative air machines to eliminate any lingering odors.
The presence of mold in your home or business impacts not only your property but potentially your health as well. Mold commonly causes allergic reactions in the forms of sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and in severe cases, shortness of breath. Mold can also have a negative impact on your property, potentially causing rot.
To properly remediate mold, you need to have a pre mold remediation test to ensure that there is a mold problem on the property. If elevated levels of mold are found, Restoration Dispatched will then come in and perform the mold remediation (removal). After our services are completed, another post-mold remediation test will be performed to ensure successful mold remediation.
What Causes Mold?
Mold is caused by excessive moisture being present in an environment, oftentimes mold is found in humid rooms, such as a basement. Mold is also commonly found in kitchens and bathrooms. Once mold has formed, it is likely that it will continue to grow and spread if the environment is not corrected and the mold remediated.
Independent Mold Testing
Mold testing is handled by a 3rd, independent party. This ensures that there is no conflict of interest, and ensures you that mold remediation was both necessary and done properly. Mold testing occurs before remediation to ensure remediation is needed, and after to ensure remediation was successful.
Mold Removal vs. Mold Remediation
Mold Remediation is the process of remedying the presence of mold by removing it. However, complete mold removal often is not possible as mold, at healthy levels, exists almost everywhere. When mold levels exceed a healthy or safe threshold, then remediation is necessary. The difference between mold removal and mold remediation is just a wording technicality; both services are identical.
Sewage damage or sewage flood is a serious situation, regardless if it was caused from a toilet overflow, backup, or broken sewage line. Sewage floods bring with them harmful bacterias and odors. Sewage water is known as category 3 water, which means there are special operating procedures with the disposal of the water, as well as the cleaning up and restoration process.
Sewage Flood – Category 3 Water
Sewage water is category 3 water, which means it is grossly unsanitary and unhealthy. Category 3 water often contains Fungi and harmful bacteria, causing severe discomfort and sickness.
You can’t just pump out category 3 water; there are special disposal guidelines that must be followed in order to ensure health and safety.
Proper Decontamination & Sanitation
As mentioned, sewage water is category 3 water, meaning it can be extremely harmful to your health. After all standing sewage water has been extracted, everything must be properly sanitized, restored or discarded. Not properly decontaminating and sanitizing contents affected by category 3 water can have significant health impacts.
