Flood Water Removal

One of the most important steps in recovering your home from flood damage is to remove all the standing water as quickly as possible. Leaving water on the property will result in the water infiltrating all the surrounding porous materials. Not only is this very unsanitary, as floodwater carries many pathogens, but it is also the leading cause of severe secondary damages like mold, rot, and structural instability. That is why Pulliam Restoration offers 24/7 emergency water removal. As soon as you call us we will dispatch one of our professional water extraction technicians to inspect the property and get started on emergency water removal. Do not wait for your damages to get worse. Call Pulliam now.

Drying and Disinfection

After the water has been removed the area is still in danger of secondary damage. Not only are the pathogens still present but there is also moisture inside the materials that will cause continuous problems throughout time. Here at Pulliam we first disinfect all the surfaces to ensure no pathogens are left to threaten your health and then thoroughly dry the area. We use top-of-the-line equipment to quickly and effectively dehumidify the entire area.
