WATER CAN BE HAZARDOUS REASONS TO CALL THE PROFESSIONALS
When flooding assault your valued property and minutes matter, you need a water restoration company that does not clock out at 5:00. Action Extraction has a local team of certified technicians standing ready at a moments notice to drop what they are doing and focus their attention on immediate service 24/7 day or night.
In many cleaning and restoration scenarios, minutes matter. That is why we have strategically positioned ourselves to be faster to water emergencies than our competition. Often our response time is in under 1 hour, because rapid responses can thwart the intentions of water damage.
Because moisture rich environments can develop mold and mildew in less than 48 hours, it is critical to remove water as soon as it is discovered to minimize damages. Neglecting restoration for days can allow mold to thrive and spread, causing the cost for restoration to be greater than necessary.
Water is particularly invasive and quickly migrates throughout your property absorbing deeply in materials like floors, walls, ceilings and cabinetry. When water extraction service is introduced early the next steps in the restoration process can begin in a timely manner. Contents can be wiped clean, furniture can be moved and stored in an unaffected room and germ eliminating agents can be applied to all surfaces.
After we contain the area we will introduce commercial air movers and dehumidifiers that will begin to dry all structures.
Beginning Water Removal Service in Huntington Woods
Every flood scenario is different and will require a unique solution, but the general process remains the same. The first step after any electrical dangers being address is water extraction service. Action Extraction has the best water extraction equipment on the market and knows how to use it effectively. If your basement has carpet that is wet and the water has only touched a small area we will water extract carpet with a truck-mount extraction system. These vacuum machines are capable of removing 99% of unwanted water allowing the drying service to the carpet to be minimal.
If your basement is completely under water with hundreds or thousands of gallons, we have a water removal pump system that can eliminate all water in hours allowing the technicians to enter the basement. Basement flooding is generally due to a sewer drain backup or a failed sump pump. When this occurs the water is highly contaminated and the water removal service will be managed in accordance to industry requirements.
Ground water from a sump well can be easily extracted and placed on the lawn. Raw sewage however, must be placed in a appropriate disposal receptacle. We specialize in water removal from basements and can easily turn your water emergency nightmare into a triumpth of cleaning technology.
Disinfecting Surfaces after Water Removal
Once we remove water from property we apply authentic botanical technology to kill all germs. These “green” plant based anti-microbials will confidently sanitize your water damaged environment, making it safe and germ free. Using nature’s way for germ elimination will not compromise the strength as these botanical disinfectants are proven to kill over 99.99% of bacteria, surpassing EPA requirements.

Restoration after Sump Pump Failure in Huntington Woods
Sump pumps are located in basements and when engaged channel ground water away from property so drains do not backup. They are the main line of defense against a basement flood when they function as they should. However, they are known to commonly fail and allow basements to flood, even pumps with a backup system installed. These sump pump backup systems are either battery backup or water backup. Should electricity fail the backup sump pump should save the day by taking the place of the primary.
However, both systems routinely fail allowing Huntington Woods basements to flood. The battery systems fail when acid levels are not sufficient to engage the pump, while water backups fail when they don’t actually discharge the water or merely cycle. Even if your sump pump has an alarm we have discovered over many years of mitigation, they too fail regularly.
Is your basement a casualty of a failed sump pump where even the backup failed? Well, you are not alone as that is the number one reason basements flood in Huntington Woods. As a matter of fact, failed sump pumps account for more basement flooding in Southeast Michigan than any other water emergency. Action Extraction can help by replacing the faulty pump allowing the system to maintain the water table once again.
Once the new pump has diverted all accumulated ground water from your residence, we will use our powerful extraction units to remove water from the carpet or hard surface flooring. Following the extraction process we will evaluate the scope of damages from water and begin the full restoration of your flooded basement. Call us and be connected live to the owner who can answer your questions and dispatch immediate help.

There are unfortunate tales of flooded basements with wet carpet and even crawlspaces where accumulated water has been allowed to remain on building materials exposure to water. The occupants assumed these water affected zones would just air out on their own with no negative repercussion to the home.

Finally after contacting an environmental hygienist and air samples turned into a lab, conclusive proof identified mold in the home.
