No homeowner wants to have to deal with water damage. Thoughts of soaking wet carpet, damaged floorboards, and dripping beams are right at the top of a homeowner’s list of nightmares. But the fact remains that flooding, broken pipes, and sewer backups do occur. If and when you find yourself in that situation, speed is of the essence. That’s why A1 Cleaning offers 24-hour emergency service for water damage in Redwood Falls, MN.
We Start Right Away
In order to process a claim, many insurance companies require that the homeowner act promptly to mitigate further water damage. Acting quickly is critical. Our 24-hour service means that no matter what time of day it is, we will immediately get to work for you and start removing water from all affected areas. In most circumstances, we can begin the cleaning process within an hour, significantly limiting any further damage.
Often homeowners are only concerned about the carpet and pad, but we will be working to detect moisture in the walls, beams, subflooring, and insulation as well. All of these areas need to be checked and addressed, if necessary. We are highly skilled at water removal, even when working in the summer humidity of Minnesota. Affected lumber and other building materials will be removed and replaced where needed.
We Clear The Air
Water damage carries the inherent risk of mold growth in a home. Mold needs moisture, time, and food, such as building materials, to grow; all three are present in a water damage situation. Given the right circumstances, mold can begin to grow within 24 – 48 hours, so we want to work quickly to get your home restored.
Although mold is always all around us, those with mold allergies or compromised lung function may be particularly affected by the presence of excessive mold in the home after flooding or other water damage.
Furthermore, in the case of sewer backups, viruses and bacteria may be present as well. A1 Cleaning will bring in air filters and scrubbers to clean your home’s air and clear it of mold spores and other biohazardous contaminants. With our specialized equipment, we can take care of up to 22,000 square feet in a day, working quickly to get your home back to good health.
We Put Your Home Back In Order
Once the air humidity and air quality are within normal ranges again, our team will finish the restoration. We install new materials as needed, such as lumber and sheetrock. We will paint and finish the trim in affected areas as well. If you need new flooring, A1 can refer you to qualified specialists and installers. Our job is to restore not only your home but also your peace of mind. We will leave you with a healthy living space again, ready for your family to enjoy.
We Care About Your Comfort
Whenever possible, we try to work while your family remains in the home if that is your desire. However, if the damage is extensive enough, or if it is in the main living areas of the home, you may need to find alternate lodging during the restoration. Sometimes we need access at odd hours to ensure timely water removal and to check the equipment, and we don’t want to be disruptive to your family.
If you plan to file an insurance claim, we will work with your agent and the insurance company to submit bids and invoices as needed. We want to make the cleaning and restoration process as smooth as possible for you.
We Employ IICRC Trained Technicians
Our highly-skilled employees have gone through extensive training by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification. The IICRC is an independent non-profit trade organization for the industry. It provides rigorous training and examination to prepare professionals for effective and proper restoration methods.
This training ensures that our service to you is top of the line. You can rest assured that your home will be cleaned and restored to the highest industry standards. A1 Cleaning is ready to tackle your biggest cleaning project, and we are honored to be on your team. When you work with A1 Cleaning, you will receive the highest level of service, courtesy, expertise, and professionalism. Contact us today if you have water damage in the Redwood Falls, MN area.
