How We Get Rid of Standing Water
Even an inch of standing water can do severe damage to your home as the water will quickly seep into surfaces, saturating your subfloors and moisture will spread into adjoining surfaces like walls. If all moisture is not promptly removed, the water could quickly breed mold, bacteria, and other pathogens. These stain and damage your home and pose a serious health risk.
We at 24/7 Flood Rescue Westminster understand how serious of a problem standing water is and take each case seriously. We arrive on scene quickly with powerful water extraction pumps which suction water and moisture from your carpets, carpet padding, hardwood floors, and concrete.
Our staff is IICRC certified and have been trained to handle all cases of standing water damage. Cold water extraction is not an exact science: there are many variables which can affect how the process is carried out, such as saturation levels, mold growth, availability of electricity, air flow, and materials. You can trust our water damage technicians to make the right decisions for your unique situation. We will inform you of your options and what you can expect. Our cold water extraction services are comprehensive, meaning we help you through every part of the problem from damage assessment to filing insurance claims.
Our process removes standing water efficiently without disturbing the structure of your home or business for easy cleanup. We provide detailed reports of services.
We Take Safety Precautions!
Our technicians ensure that there are no electrical risks or structural hazards like collapsing floor boards.
We Contain The Problem: Our technicians will isolate the source of the water damage before beginning cold water extraction, so it does not spread to other areas of your home or business. Once we locate the broken pipe, leaking appliance or damage to your property’s foundation we will begin to extract standing water
Documented & Photographed Damage Assessment: Our experts will quickly assess and restore water damage to determine whether any special steps or considerations need to be made. We will remove any items such as furniture from the space to prevent further saturation and water damage and store them off site. We provide this service to each and every customer.
Cold Water Extraction: Using pumps and powerful vacuums, the water is removed on-site. The machines are incredibly powerful and can suction water out from underneath carpet padding. This process allows us to keep the majority of your furniture and belongings where they are for an easy transition after the restoration is complete. This also cuts down on costs for you not to have to pay for storage during the process.
Necessary Moisture Detection: Using technology like infrared cameras and moisture level readers, we can detect pockets of moisture even within walls or floors to make sure we’ve removed all the water from your property. Without an inspection in the middle of the process we could leave moisture behind which causes bacteria to grow, eventually turning into mold. This will lower the value of your home and cause serious health issues if left untreated.
Controlled Drying:the site not only needs to be dried, but it needs to be dried evenly to prevent damage to your floors and other structures. Our technicians will create air chambers, set up air movers, and dehumidifiers to dry all areas tainted by water damage.
Sanitization & Deodorization: Even if mold and bacteria haven’t started to grow yet, cautions must be taken to prevent contamination. Our technicians are armed with biocides and enzyme cleaners which literally eat away bacteria, mold, fungus, and sewage.
Monitor, Watch & Restore: In some cases, we may recommend regular moisture level monitoring to make sure your property is drying properly and no mold or bacteria growth occurs. We do this to protect our customers from potential harmful issues in the future. We not only want to restore water damage in your home or business, but we want to prevent any further damage to your home in the future.

What to Do If Your Basement Floods
If your basement has flooded, the first thing is to ensure your safety. The water main should be shut off so no more water floods the basement. You should also shut off your electricity main. If both your water main and electricity main are located in the basement, see if you can use a wooden broom handle to turn off the electricity while standing at a dry place. Only then should you go into the basement to shut off the water main. When in doubt, call an electrician to shut off the water. Call a plumber if necessary to stop the problem causing the flooding.
Once your safety is secure, you should immediately call for professional cold water extraction services. Timing is of the essence because mold and bacteria can grow so quickly in standing water. At 24/7 Flood Rescue Westminster, we can usually arrive on scene within 30 minutes of your call. During this time, you may wish to remove items from the flooded space. To prevent damage to your furniture from the standing water, you can prop up furniture legs on layers of cardboard or blocks.
