Floods and storms can cause significant damage to a property. Problems include leaks from broken pipes and drains, as well as broken and dangerous appliances. Mould, mildew, and bacteria can also result from a waterlogged space. Lastly, the water itself can also be contaminated; this requires professional attention so that it can be dealt with correctly and safely.

Avoid Areas of Sewage Back-Up
If a sewer pipe or storm drain backs up, contaminants, bacteria, and other micro-organisms may become a danger to a property’s inhabitants. Immediate clean-up is required. Until then, avoid the area of the back-up. Cranes Restoration uses up-to-date technologies to clean and disinfect properties where a sewer back-up has occurred to minimize risk of mould and other contaminants that are hazardous to air quality.
Arrange for Thorough Drying
Structural drying will be done after water-damaged items have been removed from a waterlogged property. Methods to dry areas include the use of dehumidifiers, vacuums, and fans.
Water damage often results in unpleasant odours. Odours may be caused by bacteria, mould, and mildew. Fortunately, our team at Cranes Restoration has many organic and chemical compounds available to help you remove these odours.
