The 7 Biggest Questions About BioHazard Removal

The 7 Biggest Questions About BioHazard Removal

What to do when you have a biohazard

For the health and safety of others, it’s crucial to act quickly to remove biohazards from suicide, murder, accidental death, and unattended death. Here are your biggest questions answered.

 The 7 Biggest Questions About BioHazard Removal

 

First of all What is Bio Hazard Remediation?

The Definition of BIO HAZARD REMEDIATION: Comprehensive Response and Remediation to situations and structures that are contaminated or suspected to be contaminated with Bio Hazardous Materials. The objective is to return situations and structures to pre-event conditions. It includes remediation of known and unknown infectious diseases and bio hazardous materials, crime and trauma scenes, unattended deaths, unsanitary dwelling and living conditions, hoarding, suicides, mass casualty incidents, bio terrorism, human and biological (sewage, blood) materials.

The Definition of CLEAN: Dr. Michael Barry of the EPA – The removal of Spoil both visible and invisibleDefinition of Forensic Cleaning – The removal of biological contaminants to prepare surfaces bit vertical and horizontal for professional disinfecting.

The Definition of DISINFECTION: The application of an EPA registered, Hospital Grade, Tuburceluocidal Disinfectant proven to kill both gram positive and gram negative bacteria and all known pathogens and inactivate both enveloped and non enveloped viruses.

Tackling biohazards ultimately is microbial warfare.

  1. Why Can’t I Clean Up The BioHazard Myself?

    A question people often ask is what are the reasons to not simply clean up the biohazard mess themselves. Here we answer that question and this is especially relevant when it is a family member, or when it seems like there may not be enough money to hire a company to do the job for you. 

    Blood, bodily fluids, and more all need to be thoroughly cleaned up and fully eradicated. Nobody wants lasting memories cleaning up the biological remains of their loved ones. This is work for a professional like Heroes Restoration Inc.

    Biohazards are hazardous, there are blood-borne pathogens that thrive after a person dies. If the person(s) doing the cleanup work aren’t taking proper precautions, these pathogens can infect those individuals. It’s best to rely on professionals to do the cleanup work and to prevent the potential spread of diseases.

  2. Who Cleans Up After A Suicide?

    Many would immediately assume that it’s either the police, the coroner, or the doctors who would clean up after the suicide. Unfortunately this is simply not the case. Generally the body itself will be taken away, leaving the homeowner or family members to take care of cleaning what remains. Depending upon how violent the suicide was and how long the body was there before being found, there is likely biological waste in numerous places that’s not always easily visible. Biohazardous materials can be embedded within walls, the ceiling, flooring and other less obvious places.

    This is why Biohazard removal experts are so important. Heroes Restoration Inc. painstakingly and thoroughly checks everywhere within the affected area to make sure that there is no remaining evidence of the suicide. We clean up every possible aspect of the suicide, including blood spill and any remaining body tissue.

  3. How Long Does It Take To Clean Up?

    We are sensitive to you wanting your home or property restored to its former glory, with no visual or olfactory reminders of what happened. That’s why we are on site within an hour*, so that we can begin cleanup as quickly as possible to help you move forward.

    The length of time to clean up bio-hazards can vary greatly. There are more straightforward cases which allow us to get in and out in only a few hours. And then there are more complex cases of bio hazards that are spread over a large area, which may take hours, and possibly days, to clean up. 

    The important thing to remember is that Heroes Restoration Inc. – we are your cleanup heroes. The first step is contacting us so that we can assess the damage and have an open conversation about what we can do together to best address your biohazard situation.

  4. Will My Insurance Cover Any of This?

    The short answer is that we are here to champion on your behalf – but as with most things related to insurance, it depends. Some biohazard removal companies will also work FOR you to get insurance benefits that help cover expenses and the costs of replacing damaged items.

    Many homeowners policies will cover some or all of the cleanup cost, since the property is devalued if there is any evidence of a gruesome act still around. What’s not always easy to determine is to what extent, if your insurance allows, that your homeowners policy will cover.

    Our core focus is to make your restoration process as easy and as painless as possible. We are YOUR heroes at Heroes Restoration Inc. and focused on helping you. That means fighting for you to get the help you need, including financial resources to help you address the biohazard cleanup on your property.

    Biohazard clean up and disinfection must happen FAST! The quickest way determine if your insurance will cover cleanup is to call Heroes Restoration Inc. for an assessment. 

  5. Do the Police Clean Up After a Murder?

    No, the police do not clean up after a murder occurs. The coroner will remove the body, and what remains will be the responsibility of the property owner or tenant. 

    The police are on scene to assess and record every piece of evidence when a murder occurs. When finished they leave it all for you to address on your own. This can include fingerprint dust, any emergency technician refuse, body tissues and blood, and so forth.

    At a murder scene, there can be biologically hazardous fluids and debris in many, many places. Depending upon the violence of the crime, body tissue and bodily fluids can be spread throughout the scene.

    Cleaning up after a murder is what Heroes Restoration Inc. is best at, zero trace cleanup. Our expert caring team provides exact methods of cleanup so no one would ever know that a murder had occurred. Fully eliminating the scene from bloodborne pathogens, we offer fast and effective cleanup against biohazards.

  6. Why Is BioHazard Removal A Regulated Field?

    Biohazard removal can be incredibly dangerous. Biological hazards are dangerous to human beings and pets as biological threats to our health and safety.

    To prevent people from the dangers of the biohazards and pathogens, for safety this field is closely regulated and has specific standards that must be upheld by field experts. There are standards in place to help ensure that the technicians working on a particular clean up task are as protected as possible from any dangers to include bloodborne pathogens, diseases, and more.

    The very reasons why this industry is regulated are the same reasons why you shouldn’t undertake removing biohazards yourself. Biohazard removal is dangerous, and unless you are specifically trained biohazard cleanup expert, the risks you take may not be immediately apparent and can be very hazardous.

  7. Are There Any Types of Emergency Biohazard Cleanup You Do not Do?

    You can always call us Heroes Restoration Inc. to find out. Call 804-410-1800 now!

Top 5 Reasons To Hire a Professional for Mold Remediation

Top 5 Reasons To Hire a Professional for Mold Remediation

What to do when you discover mold in your home

It’s crucial to act quickly to minimize damages to your health and to anyone else in your home, including your pets. Mold can be hard to detect and is a silent creeper, and one of your worst enemies. Hiring a professional is the best way to make certain everyone in your home remains safe from mold. Here are the Top 5 Reasons why you should hire an expert to clean up your mold problem.

Top 5 Reasons To Hire a Professional for Mold Remediation

  1. Bleach Doesn’t Kill Mold

    WHAT?! Bleach doesn’t kill mold?! Got your attention, right? Everyone knows that bleach can kill mold. But, this is only sort of true.

    Bleach kills mold – but only SOMETIMES. The specifics come down to if you are dealing with a porous surface or a non-porous surface. On smooth surfaces like tile, if there is a fuzzy mold growth that you want to get rid of – bleach will likely kill the mold and all of the mold roots – because the mold roots didn’t have anywhere further to go. The issue of believing that bleach can kill mold quickly and easily in your home is that homeowners will apply bleach spray to try and kill mold on wood, or on drywall, or on other porous surfaces that soak up moisture, which can make the problem worse. 

    So, what happens then? Bleach spray is wet – because it’s made of water and bleach. While bleach does kill the surface of the mold and may remove the mold stain, bleach also evaporates leaving behind water. Water is part of what mold needs to grow, and because you have added more water with the bleach spray, you may likely have an even bigger mold problem.

    Bleach is not an effective method in killing mold. When spraying bleach on a surface, bleach will create a bio film making a prime spot for more mold to grow again. Ultimately using bleach can make the mold problem worse and not better.

  2. Mold Grows Very Quickly

    Mold starts growing on surfaces within 12-36 hours of a wet event, and if not removed your mold problem will rapidly get exceedingly worse. Mold will quickly and savagely dig roots deep into porous surfaces, often making it incredibly difficult to fully and completely kill the mold problem on your own. It is of utmost importance to protect your property by having mold professionally removed as soon as it’s found.

    If you are killing the mold yourself (or trying to) this might mean that you are consistently and constantly re-attacking the same old enemy, instead of killing it at the root level once and for all. As you disturb mold while cleaning, it will send spores into the air that can travel throughout your entire house, and begin growing in other places that did not have a mold problem originally. Making your attempts to self-clean and self-manage an even further loss.

    Hiring a professional mold remediation company like Heroes Restoration Inc. is the safest and most effective way of fully eliminating mold within your home the first time. Utilizing specialized mold cleanup methods, a mold professional will quickly and completely kill mold found within your property. To protect you and your family from any of the harmful effects of bad molds, a mold professional also carefully routes ventilation by creating negative air pressure when killing and removing mold. This is key for mold spore containment and complete mold elimination.

  3. Mold Causes Long Term Health Problems

    Some of the dangerous molds can become airborne, and then land in the lungs of the people living within the home affected by mold. Mold particles are so small that sometimes they are not able to be removed – ever.

    Small particles of mold being lodged forever in the lungs of people who live within a mold affected home means that there is a BIG mold problem that needs to be addressed as quickly as possible.

    Many people don’t fully recognize the danger of mold in their home. Leave that to the experts to educate you and properly handle mold removal within your home. We ARE mold remediation experts at Heroes Restoration Inc. and know what the outcome of mold within the home can be. To save you the dangers of long term mold exposure, we have developed complete and effective ways to eliminate the mold in your home.

  4. Mold Is An Invisible Enemy

    Yes, mold pictures online make you think that you can see mold really easily. However, mold begins to be a problem often long before you can see it. Mold can be microscopic and not yet visible – and worse, it can be growing behind your walls. Mold spores float through air invisibly, and will latch on to a spot inside your home without you ever seeing it. Mold will begin to grow and establish roots, making your home its home too, living side-by-side with you. 

    Mold can grow unseen and with no smell behind walls for a long time before being detected. This can create severe health problems for the people living in the home, and unfortunately it only becomes apparent sometimes AFTER health problems present in you or others living in your home – which means that there is often long term exposure to mold before it is found.

    There are mold testing methods available for you to buy. Ask your local mold remediation experts like Heroes Restoration Inc., they will let you know which tests are truly effective and how you can check your home for harmful molds.

  5. Mold Travels and Spreads [Like Viral Social Media Posts]

    Mold is like Charlotte’s children. Did you ever read Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White? Remember at the end of the book, how most of Charlotte’s children decided to travel off into the air, to find a new horizon, a new home, a new place to spin a web? And so they spun a web behind them, caught the wind, and FLEW! That’s similar to how mold works, minus the web of course.

    Mold gives off spores, which travel through the air, and will catch rides on anything. The mold spores may enter your home through an open window, door, catch a ride on a pet, on clothing, belongings, that second-hand couch you picked up for a great deal, and so on. Mold spores can travel almost anywhere, and are entirely invisible.

    Getting Rid of Mold

    If you allow the mold to grow unmitigated and do not address your mold problem, it will get worse and ultimately become a huge problem – sometimes causing structural damage too. Mold is NOT something you want to deal with once it is too late! Finding a solution to a small mold problem is almost always less expensive than fixing a bigger mold problem later on.

    Find a hero today to help you get rid of your mold problem the RIGHT way. If you’re in central Virginia, Heroes Restoration Inc. can be there in 1 hour or less*.

Free Mold Inspection

Mold isn’t always obvious, our mold professionals use thermal image scanning to test for mold and water intrusion sources. If mold removal or mold remediation is needed, we give you a free estimate too with easy to understand recommendations. Get same-day mold test results.

The Difference Between Mold Abatement and Mold Remediation

Mold abatement is the removal of mold from your property and moisture correction to inhibit further mold growth. Mold remediation is applying water proofing to areas that have water intrusions or water intrusion potential, such as basements and crawl spaces. This can be done by removing any water that is present, sealing cracks and less water resistant areas with sealers, encapsulating any dirt flooring with plastic sheeting, and correctly utilizing dehumidifiers.

What Causes Mold Growth?

  • Leaky pipes or fixtures
  • Plumbing issues or overflows
  • Poor drainage or ventalation
  • Humidity and Condensations
  • Septic Backup
  • Cracked foundation
  • Damaged roof and siding
  • Storm disasters and flooding

3 Reasons Why You Should Hire A Qualified Disinfection Expert

3 Reasons Why You Should Hire A Qualified Disinfection Expert

What to do when you want to disinfect your home or business

Do you want to disinfect your interior from COVID-19? Disinfecting your home or business could be dangerous, here are 3 reasons why you should hire an expert to disinfect your interiors.

3 Reasons Why You Should Hire A Qualified Disinfection Expert

 

Right now most everyone is interested in making sure that their home or business is in a state of thorough disinfection. It is important that you know everything you can to properly protect yourself and minimize or mitigate the effects of COVID-19 along with other diseases, viruses and pathogens from further spread within your spaces. Hiring the cheapest person to do the job can be dangerous – you may not be getting a professional disinfection and dangers can still linger. Hiring a reputable disinfection expert is key for a thorough and professional disinfection, here’s why. 

  1. some companies Are Not Qualified or Trained for VIRUS & PATHOGEN disinfection

    There are tried and true methods for whole house or whole business disinfection. These methods have been rigorously tested and shown to be most effective against 99.99%-99.9999% of pathogens such as common bacteria and viruses.

    Reputable companies have invested a lot of resources to learn and perfect these disinfection methods. These reputable companies were either in existence before the current COVID-19 crisis or carefully learned the exhaustive process to properly disinfect a home or a business.

    In every disaster, unfortunately there are opportunists. There have been reports of entrepreneurs who saw an opportunity to sell disinfection services, and have started to offer such services without the proper training, materials, tools, and or understanding of how viruses and bacteria work.

    Even regular over the counter disinfectants have to be used in a specific way otherwise they won’t actually kill anything. They have to be sprayed or wiped on in a specific manner, and then left on the surface for a specified amount of time. Failure to read and follow these instructions can result in bacteria, viruses and other pathogens continuing to pose a threat.

    This means that someone in great need of whole house or whole business disinfection can pay for these services, expecting to have surfaces without pathogens when the disinfection job is finished, yet still have surfaces that are harboring dangers because the least expensive person was hired to do the job. This leads us on to the next potential issue…

  2. Popup and low budget disinfection services Create A False Sense Of Security

    People operate differently when they believe that surfaces have been disinfected and dangerous pathogens have been killed compared to when they believe that the pathogens are potentially all around. Generally people will become more relaxed with hand washing, doing so less frequently or not as thorough, and will also be more relaxed about where they put their hands too. 

    In some cases, stores and businesses are paying for professional disinfecting services before allowing people most at risk for the coronavirus inside. But if the person doing the disinfection service is low budget, or doing a subpar job, or is under qualified, the disinfection service provided may not actually kill the viruses and bacteria. And those vulnerable patrons and visitors are still in danger and risking exposure.

    Thinking that something is disinfected without it actually being disinfected can create a false sense of security, and this can create a waterfall of negative effects and liability for the store or business who hires a disinfection service that is not fully reputable.

  3. Spreading Pathogens Throughout The Environment

    What method is the person performing your disinfection service using to kill and eradicate the bacteria and viruses within your environment? If there is any force of air from tools used during the disinfection process, or if improper tools and methods are used, then you can have someone who ends up just blowing around bacteria and viruses all over your interior spaces.

    Study after study shows that some of the most common household items are really breeding grounds for harmful germs. Many people use these items to clean other things – thereby spreading the viruses and super bugs. Think of a household sponge – people often use a single sponge to clean multiple surfaces, and to clean other things throughout their home too. This can spread the bacteria and viruses to areas that didn’t have any to begin with.

    If a person performing disinfection services is not properly trained and qualified, there can be lapses in care to include improperly disinfecting their own tools and supplies. And this lapse in care can potentially bring pathogens from other places into your home or business too.

    Where is the last place this the person performing your disinfection services cleaned? Was it a hospital? Do you want germs like that in your home or business environment? Invest in a professional for a thorough and proper disinfection done the right way.

    Yes, There Is Cost Involved With Quality Disinfection Services

    If someone comes in to a business or home to kill germs, there is a certain amount of labor and supplies involved.

    It takes money to run a disinfection business, to hire and train or certify employees, to conduct research (or be a part of a research system), to innovate germ-killing processes, and more. This means that there is going to be a certain level of a minimal pricing that needs to be charged to make sure that you are well protected, that your home and business are safely and thoroughly disinfected, and that your disinfection job is done well and right.

    Find Your Germ Disinfection Heroes

    Wherever you live, do some research to find the proper qualified heroes with helping you take care of disinfecting your home, store, or business. You will want reputable companies who work with reputable suppliers, and who use EPA approved and in some cases patented processes. Choose to work with disinfection businesses that are careful to conduct research and find the proper solutions that will truly protect your spaces and you.

    Disinfection processes are important as well. Your qualified disinfection heroes are the ones who have specific processes in place to make sure that technicians are professional and responsible between jobs, taking extra care to clean and sterilize tools so that you are well protected from the start.

    If you are in the central Virginia area and are looking for a Heroes to help you with killing the germs, bacteria, pathogens, and viruses in your spaces, Heroes Restoration Inc. is here to help. We can get rid of lingering diseases like influenza (flu), rotavirus, coronavirus, rhinovirus, and much more. We also have a process that will help protect surfaces up to 3 months.

Germ, Bacteria and Pathogen Surface Life Span

It’s no secret that humans are good at spreading germs. Household surfaces are a common vessel to carry these dangerous lingering and long-living environmental contaminants, infecting those who come in contact. Surface contaminants are the number one cause for why people become sick, and also why sickness can reoccur. 

Many bacteria develop resistance to household disinfectants and have a significant life span lasting for weeks, months, and some up to a year or longer. Heroes Restoration Inc. can safely protect your space from these dangerous germs by using an electrostatic misting system that dispenses EPA approved cleansers with all-natural electrolyzed saline water. For the cost of a cup of coffee per day we can protect your home and spaces from viruses like Influenza and Coronavirus, along with protection from dangerous Pathogens, Germs, and Bacteria.

10 Tips For Dealing With Fire Damages

10 Tips For Dealing With Fire Damages

What to do when you have fire damages

It’s crucial to act quickly to minimize damages from a fire. Fires can spread quickly and property damage will continue to occur until cleanup happens, here are 10 tips for dealing with fire damages.

10 Tips For Dealing With Fire Damages

Plus a Bonus Tip on Dealing With Your Insurance Company

  1. Call A Fire Damage Mitigation Company First Thing

    A fire damage mitigation company works for you, not for your insurance company, and they help you every step along the way to recovery. The fire restoration company will help you with fully documenting your claim, as well as negotiating on your behalf with the insurance company.

    It is important that you hire a fire damage restoration company as soon as possible after a fire has occurred. They will help you file your claim and will quickly repair your damaged property to avoid further acidic corrosive damages. The longer soot sits on finishes, the more it will corrode and causing even more damage.

  2. Contact Your Insurance Company

    Your insurance provider must know that you have a claim from a fire. You can potentially wait until a fire damage restoration company shows up to verify that you do not likely have a $0 value claim, but you need to file a claim with your insurance company as soon as possible.

    At times the insurance company will want to send out their own adjuster. The company you hire to clean up smoke and fire damage will get started immediately and should document damage as they go. The sooner you let the insurance company know what has happened, the sooner you can move your claim along.

    If the fire damage happened to your home, you will need somewhere to go. Your insurance company likely has funds available as a part of your claims process to provide you with safe lodging, and may also provide you with temporary belongings, like clothing, while your property is being salvaged.

  3. Protect Your Health

    Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is important to help you protect your health and welfare after a fire. Fire leaves a lasting effect on more than just your belongings.

    There are many chemicals and dangerous substances in the air after a fire, you do not want to expose yourself to those toxins any more than necessary. Prevent pets and vulnerable people such as sick, frail, elderly, children from getting anywhere near fire or smoke damaged areas.

    Seek medical help if you or someone you love does experience health problems from being exposed to the fire from smoke, soot, or heat. An abundance of caution is urged, anyone who was part of the fire event should be checked out by a qualified medical professional.

  4. Get a Copy Of The Fire Report Along With Names and Numbers

    At the actual time of the fire cleanup, get the name of the first officer (the first person on the scene) and the name and number of the lead investigator. Sometimes a fire investigation occurs to verify that there is no suspicious cause nor arson involved, it is helpful to get the name and number of the lead investigator to follow up on the case when necessary.

    The fire report is an important document to have when going through the claims process. The fire report notates what happened, what caused the fire, and more. You may need to submit a copy to your insurance company, or to give your adjuster the name and number of the lead investigator.

  5. Limit Movement In and Around the Area

    Moving around in the smoke damaged area, or in an area that a fire just ran through, can cause soot or smoke damage to be fully absorbed into soft surfaces, such as carpets. This causes even further property damage. It is recommended to keep away from damaged areas until your fire restoration team has done whatever possible to mitigate the damage and make it safer to move around and minimize damage.

  6. Record EVERY Damaged Item

    Make sure to document every item that was damaged. Depending upon your agreement with your fire restoration company or private adjuster, these service companies may record damaged items for you. The adjusters for the insurance company will often try to group things together, because it is easier to put a lower price on a group of items than when the items are listed individually. Record EVERY item individually to maximize the damages that are recuperated.

  7. Document All of the Damage

    You can say something was damaged all you want – without some form of proof, to the insurance adjuster it never happened. It is important to take careful photos of every item that you are claiming as lost or damaged as part of your insurance claim. Make sure to take a photo of the item before handling too, this will help in verifying that the item was indeed in a place that was damaged by the fire or the smoke.  A reputable fire restoration contractor can help you with all of this and more. There are also special technologies available on the market like 3D cameras that are very helpful with this step.

    Discuss with your personal adjuster or your fire damage restoration company technicians whether it is okay to throw out any of the smoke or fire damaged items. The insurance company may disagree with the stated damage of certain items. You may need to hold on to them until the insurance company is finished with the claim.

  8. Empty YOUR Refrigerator and Freezer

    If the electricity is out, which it typically will be, find a new place to store your cold food. To prevent mold or mildew from growing inside those appliances, prop open the doors. This step is often neglected in the aftermath of a fire event and can lead to further damage due to rotting foods, lingering odors, and potentially leading to a biohazard waste cleanup too.

  9. Clean The Property Thoroughly

    Many people want to clean the damage themselves and are doing themselves a disservice. It is best to work with professionals who know how to properly clean your items and property after the damage of a fire to prevent further loss.

    Whenever possible a fire damage cleaning professional should be handling the cleaning of the fire and smoke damage for you. Our pros here at Heroes Restoration Inc. handle these types of jobs regularly and can help you through every step to make sure that your home or business gets cleaned thoroughly, safely, and completely.

  10. Save Anything Salvageable

    Some keepsakes or memories may be salvageable. Discuss this with the professionals who are helping you clean up after your fire. Even if you are saving some of your belongings, it may be damaged beyond repair, or it may still be a part of the insurance claim, so discuss this with whomever is helping you deal with the aftermath of the fire event.

  11. Fully Dry Everything and Beware of Mold!

    There is usually a tremendous amount of water that gets inundated within your property after a fire event. When filing smoke and fire insurance claims, water damage is often the reason that things are destroyed outside of the fire itself.

    Make sure that you thoroughly dry, or hire a professional mitigation company to thoroughly dry, anything and everything. The potential danger of not drying your property fully and completely using mold mitigation techniques, is that mold can quickly and catastrophically take over making damages far worse. Make sure you dry everything thoroughly.

  12.  Do Not Use Appliances or Electronics

    You should get your appliances and electronics checked out by a qualified technician before using them after a fire event. The fire, smoke, and soot can change the chemical makeup of your items, which can create a new fire hazard as the electricity can flow in ways not initially intended.

5 Reasons to Call A Water Mitigation Company First

5 Reasons to Call A Water Mitigation Company First

How you should handle water damages

A water restoration or water mitigation company is focused on you versus your insurance company, and will fully advocate on your behalf. Here are reasons why you should contact one of these companies first before contacting your insurance company.

5 Reasons to Call A Water Mitigation Company First
BEFORE Calling Your Insurance Company

  1. Water Mitigation and Water Restoration Companies Works For YOU

    As a third-party contractor, your water restoration company is focused on their client, which is YOU. The insurance company will likely be paying the bill, but the water restoration company is hired by you, the homeowner or business owner.

    This means that at every step of the water mitigation and water removal process, the core focus of your water restoration company should be your happiness and satisfaction. This virtue is held first at Heroes Restoration Inc.

    With the business model of an insurance company, they will typically WANT to find a reason to not pay you for water damages. The less claims an insurance company pays out, the more profits they post.

    Time and again it is smart homeowners that have hired an experienced advocate, working with them and for them, who are able to maximize their insurance claim and recoup as much of their damages as possible versus those that called their insurance company first.

  2. Any Delay Before Cleanup Can Cause Much More Damage

    Water damages can quickly and sometimes catastrophically damage a home or business. Water gets in nooks and crannies, spreading throughout your porous surfaces. Having a water mitigation team on site and starting clean up as quickly as possible is CRUCIAL in making sure that your damages are limited. This will also help in preventing mold damages too.

    By calling a water removal service FIRST you are giving the team the power to begin cleanup and water removal while you are communicating with your insurance company. It can take a long time talking with your insurance company over the phone, to get assigned an adjuster, talking with the adjuster about the hows and when and where and what has occurred, and more – all the while, the water is causing additional damages to your home because it’s not being cleaned up quickly.

    By calling water remediation experts FIRST, you will have a team of experienced professionals on their way to you fast, so cleanup can begin immediately. If you’re in central Virginia, Heroes Restoration Inc. can be on site within 1 hour* to help you on your way to speedy and thorough water removal.

  3. Not Acting Fast May Make YOU Liable For the DamageS

    Many insurance companies have clauses in their contracts stating that if you are not doing your part to take care of your home – including delaying getting things fixed when they can cause damage – you may be liable for the damages caused instead of the insurance company.

    Most homeowners have a fiduciary obligation to do everything they can to mitigate the damage of an event, such as a flood or water damage. And if they haven’t yet, the insurance company may be able to beg off the damages, stating the damages wouldn’t be nearly as bad “if only” the homeowner had acted faster.

    Why put yourself at risk of the insurance company trying to get out of a claim? When you call a water remediation expert first, the technicians are documenting your entire claim and cleaning up the mess while you communicate with the insurance company to get the claims process started.

  4. Zero Dollar Claims

    There is a concept in insurance called a “$0 Dollar Claim.” What this means is that the insurance company has a claim filed on your account, which they determined they do NOT have to pay for. It is a claim for $0.

    The reasons behind a zero dollar claim can be complex. It could be the water damage is too low to get over the deductible threshold. It could be that the insurance company determines that the homeowner didn’t react quickly enough. There are many reasons WHY the zero dollar claim can show up. The insurance company still records it as a black mark on your record, and may raise your premiums because of it.

    By calling a third party water remediation service first, your water cleanup experts can help you determine if you have a claim over the deductible threshold, and can document all the water damages using tools at their ready disposal. Heroes Restoration Inc. has special 3D imaging equipment to create documented proof of your water damages. This enables us to work on your behalf with PROOF that you experienced water damages, which helps the insurance claim process move along on your behalf.

    Don’t allow the insurance company to raise your rates due to a $0 claim. Make sure that you have someone who will FIGHT for you and help you make the right decisions from the beginning.

  5. Calm And Effective Technicians Can Help You In Your Most Trying Time

    Your home just flooded. Your bathtub just leaked everywhere. The entire basement is filled with water.

    These are incredibly stressful moments. Emotions are running in so many different directions, anger, frustration, stress, exasperation, and more.

    It is precisely at these times that you need friendly, capable professionals at your side who are there for YOU and are able to help you remain calm and focused on what will help you the most.

    In Stressful Moments Like Water Damages, You Need a Hero!

    Surely you have seen someone going through a stressful moment? They lean on and depend upon calm people in their lives, the people who always seem to know what to do. This is what we do at Heroes Restoration Inc. We make it our business to be the hero people need in their times of crisis.

    Having been there for so many others going through trying times, we have worked hand-in-hand with homeowners to help them maximize their insurance claim so that they can recover and move on to living their best lives. Call us when you need a hero at 804-410-1800!

  6. We Guarantee Our Work

    We want you to be as confident in our work as we are, which is why we offer 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Free Mold Inspection After Water Damages

Mold isn’t always obvious, our mold professionals use thermal image scanning to test for mold and to locate any water intrusion sources. We give you a free estimate too with easy to understand recommendations for water remediation, water restoration, and mold remediation (if needed) after water damages occur.

The Difference Between Water Mitigation and Water Remediation

Water mitigation is the removal of water from your property to include any damaged furniture and household items, and building materials such as drywall and flooring. We check for structural integrity, then disinfect and completely dry the property with commercial grade equipment for the fastest results. Water remediation involves moisture correction to inhibit further mold growth and property damages. We can apply water proofing to basements and crawl spaces using sealants and encapsulation to further protect your property from any future water intrusions.

What Causes Water Damages?

  • Leaky pipes or fixtures
  • Plumbing issues or overflows
  • Poor drainage or ventalation
  • Humidity and Condensations
  • Septic Backup
  • Cracked foundation
  • Damaged roof and siding
  • Storm disasters and flooding

The Cost of Water Damages

We are always up-front with costs and provide free estimates too! Quickly responding to your needs, we work with any insurance company and bill them directly. Water removal and restoration costs are dependent upon the following:

  • Size of the affected area
  • Amount of damage to contain and remove
  • How much standing water exists
  • If any restoration or reconstruction is needed
  • And if any remediation is needed to prevent future water damages

We offer a 1 year no mold growth guarantee!
