When it comes to water damage and flood emergencies, a fast response is everything. We must take immediate action to mitigate the damage done. Modernistic is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year to respond to your call. Our phones are staffed around the clock. Our first task is dispatching expert crews to your location as quickly as possible.
Remember, the sooner our technicians can get to work, the more time and money you will save. Our Michigan flood emergency response team receives the best training in the industry and is standing by ready to serve with the largest water extraction fleet in the state.
Technicians Arrive and Make a Plan
In order to best serve you, our technicians aim to arrive on the scene of your flood emergency within 60 to 90 minutes of your call. This is not always possible given weather conditions and traffic, but that is always our goal. The quickest possible response time helps to limit water damage. Our IICRC-certified technicians will arrive at your home or business in order to assess the water damage and begin planning the restoration process as soon as they can.
Using state-of-the-art technology and advanced techniques, our technicians locate any water and moisture present in your building. Moisture metering and mapping techniques are used in order to locate any hidden moisture in flooring, ceilings, walls and any other property in the affected area.
Water Removal & Demolition
Any standing water is quickly removed with powerful, truck-mounted water extraction systems. Depending on the category of water damage, some building materials may need to be removed in order to maintain the safety of your home. Only if necessary, our technicians will perform this demolition. If possible, they will haul the debris away. If it cannot fit in our trucks, we will coordinate a dumpster to be placed on-site for non-recoverable materials.
Set Up Drying Equipment
Air movers and commercial-grade dehumidifiers quickly dry building materials that can be salvaged and other structures affected by water. Technicians carefully monitor the temperature, humidity, and drying equipment as the drying process begins and as it continues. Structural drying techniques are completed as quickly as possible in order to get your home or place of business back in working order.
Depending on the extent of and type of damage, parts of your home or business may need professional cleaning. Our flood care specialists make sure that moisture is completely removed from all structures affected by water before assessing what cleaning may need to be performed. Water quickly seeps into flooring and padding as well as upholstery and other furnishings. Water can damage property quickly and may require extensive cleaning. Thankfully, our expert staff is prepared to perform any cleaning services your property may require. Most surfaces at a minimum require an anti-microbial treatment to be applied to ensure a safe environment.
