Dehumidifying with industrial fans and commercial dehumidifiers ensure that every last bit of moisture is extracted from the flooded area. Mold damage is a likely to occur if this step is not done properly.

Depending on the type of water that flooded your home, our team will use antifungal, antibacterial disinfecting treatments to sanitize your home.
