Schuh's Water Damage Restoration Services
.

 We only use state-of-the-art low grain refrigerant (LGR) technology for all our restoration services.

An LGR Dehumidifier will return wet material to pre loss condition faster than a conventional refrigerant. In fact one LGR will dry out a room in less time and more thoroughly than multiply conventional refrigerants.

We can handle all 4 classes of water damages claims.

Big or Small

Residential and Commercial

Our fully trained crew will arrive at your home or business with our

mobile cleaning plant to perform all necessary steps to

restore and protect your investment and contents

From removing the water to drying out the structure

and cleaning your contents to fully restoring your home or business to its original state.

 

 

Cleaning is our business,
so if you need to have structure damage repaired we have a list of qualified builders we work with in order
to help complete the project for you.


 

WATER DAMAGE RESTORATION - WATER LOSS CATEGORIES 1,2,3

Water damage and related water losses are a fact of life.  It’s not if these problems will occur…it’s when.  When water losses do occur, understanding the microbial contamination of the water that affects building materials is critical in developing a restoration or remediation action plan or scope of work.   When the water that affects a building is contaminated with sewage sources, flooding from ground surface water, sea-water or from river flooding, there is a serious potential threat to human health and the indoor environmental quality.

Water saturated porous building materials are an ideal source for the growth of microorganisms, such as bacteria and fungi.  The growth of these types of organisms can produce toxic substances that can be exposed to humans within indoor environments.  The growth of bacteria and mold can occur from all types of water losses as defined by the IICRC S500 standard, whether the water is from clean water sources (Category 1), contaminated or gray water sources (Category 2) and pathogenic or black water sources (Category 3).  The risk of microbial contamination of building materials and exposure to pathogenic bacterial, viral or fungal related organisms increases as the classification of water increases from Category 1 to Category 3.

A real-time biocontamination detection system is the solution for testing and determining the level of contamination present in IICRC S500 defined Category 1, Category 2 or Category 3 water loss situations in seconds.  The system is an ideal tool for assessing the level of bacteria contamination in water as well as determining the amount of contamination on the building materials affected by water loss.   The system allows the user to measure and document the level of biological contamination of the water directly with the use of the Aquasnap ATP devices or of the water damaged building material using a Ultrasnap ATP swabs.  The system is also useful in measuring the effectiveness of biological decontamination of remediation equipment used to correct water loss events to prevent cross-contamination from project to project.

The system is the perfect tool for measuring the cleaning and sanitizing effectiveness of the water loss restoration and remediation work performed.  The ability to obtain results in seconds versus days provides excellent project quality assurance for the restoration or remediation contractor or indoor environmental professional (IEP).  The system can provide the restoration or remediation contractor as well as the IEP investigator the ability to determine the contamination hygiene level of surfaces or building materials for viable (living) biological matter (bacteria and mold), biofilms and related organic materials.  This ability allows the user to quickly, accurately and cost effectively measure the cleaning and sanitizing process to ensure the water damage restoration or remediation is being performed with a high level of quality to reduce or eliminate potential pathogens from the indoor environment.

The purpose of the sampling is to determine the level of biological surface contamination of building materials, equipment, devices, and general surfaces within an indoor environment.  The bio-contamination detection system is designed to evaluate the level of biological surface cleanliness and sanitized hygiene in the indoor environment.  This Bio-reveal system will detect and document the surface conditions where pathogenic organisms may be detected or harbored as a result of dirty or unhygienic situations.

 

After a fire or water damge in your home or business you should be concerned about the way your property is
dryed out and how fast. If it is not dryed out correctly you could have the possibility of additional damage happening.

After having a water damage , you should also be concerned about Mold growing in my home or business.

What is mold?

Molds are many tiny spores; the spores are invisible to the naked eye and float through outdoor and indoor arr.

Mold begins to grow indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet.

They are many types of molds, and none of them will grow without water or moisture.

Molds are part of the natural environment and play a great part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter,

 

How ever indoors, mold growth should be avoided.

 

Mold usually is not a problem indoors, unless mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begins growing after the condition has developed from a leaky room, a basement that has a high level of moisture, an improper cleaning and drying after a flood.

Mold Inhaling or touching has the potential to allergens, irritants, and in some cases,

potentially toxic substances and cause health problems in people and pets.

Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms,

such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash and can also cause asthma attacks,

it can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people.

Allergic reactions to mold are common.

They can be immediate or delayed.

The key to mold control is moisture control.

If mold is a problem in your home, and should be clean up.

To stopmold from growing promptly fix the water problem.

It is important to dry water-damaged areas and items within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.
