FIRE / WATER RESTORATION

Fire/Water Restoration

Water Restoration Services

Disaster strikes in many forms. Whether caused by a natural or man-made disaster, moisture is a fast and silent destroyer of furnishings, equipment and building interiors. KMC Cleaners is available whenever an emergency arises. A quick phone call to us can bring our prompt and professional service to help reduce the loss resulting from these disasters. Our experienced staff is trained in every aspect of the latest techniques and equipment.

We have handled many jobs that have involved water damage, from floods to broken water pipes and backed up sewers. If water and moisture damage is managed properly with a controlled drying process, the entire restoration project will be finished sooner. Left unchecked, mildew can wreak havoc. Our Certified Water Loss Specialist will extract water, dry out contents, walls, carpet padding, and carpets in most cases to prevent mold and mildew from occurring. Special extraction equipment, air movers, dehumidification equipment and certified and trained personnel are required for proper removal. Thoroughly drying the structure reduces structural damage and damage from mold and mildew, and it also reduces rust and corrosion damage to machinery, equipment, and wiring.

Do:

  • Use fans to circulate air and expedite drying.
  • Remove as much water as possible by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe furniture dry.
  • Lift drapes from carpet, loop through a plastic coat hanger, and hang from curtain rod.
  • Prop up wet furniture cushions for even drying.
  • Remove wet area rugs and floor coverings.
  • Open furniture drawers, closet doors, and luggage to enhance drying.
  • Move photos, paintings and art objects to a safe, dry place.
  • If damage occurs during a cool season, leave heat on. During the summer, run the air conditioner if possible.
  • Place aluminum foil, china saucers or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Call KMC Cleaners.

 Don’t:

  • Use ordinary household vacuum to remove water.
  • Use electrical appliances on wet carpet or floor.
  • Go into rooms with standing water if electricity is still on.
  • Lift tacked-down carpet without professional help. Lifting carpet improperly can cause damage.
  • Wait to call for professional help.

Fire & Smoke Restoration

Fire damage can be one of the most devastating losses to property owners. KMC Cleaners understands that and we work with you and your insurance company to ensure complete restoration.

Fires often cause smoke and soot damage as well as water damage. We provide 24-hour emergency deodorization, boarding of windows and doors, and water extraction. We can help move your belongings to temporary storage while restoration is underway. We can take care of cleaning your draperies, furniture, carpets, and complete restoration services to get you back to your pre-disaster state.

We can bill your insurance company directly, and we can prepare a professional estimate for approval by your insurance adjuster.

If you need emergency service, you can call our 24-hour emergency number (one hour response time) at 1-(866)-TEXTILE (839-8453).
