Common Restoration

How Does the Water Damage Restoration Process Work?

The first step is to remove standing water from flooring, wet carpet and other affected materials. Once all the water is removed, dehumidifiers, air movers and other specialized equipment are used to dry the affected area. This typically takes 2 to 5 days, depending on but not limited to saturation time, type of materials and atmospheric conditions. We use moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras to determine when your home is thoroughly dry.

How Long Should the Water Cleanup Take?

Full restoration consists of two major phases. The first, mitigation, consists of demolition, cleaning and drying the structure. This phases typically takes 2 to 5 days. The second phase, repairs can take anywhere from a couple days to 4 weeks depending on the degree of damage and lead time for materials. Certain materials like Cabinets, Custom Wood, High End Floorings can take extended time to ship. We will work with and your insurance provider to get your property back to normal as quickly as possible.

How Much Does it Cost to Fix Water Damage?

The cost of water damage cleanup depends on the size of the flooded area and amount of time needed to handle the water repair. If your insurance policy covers the water damage you are only responsible for your deductible. The average water loss is just over $7,000. When properly dried in a timely manner you can prevent secondary damages or more costly issues, like mold.

What are the Different Categories of Water?

  1. Clean water – Category 1 – Poses no harm to people. This includes water damage caused from any fresh water supply, water heater, sink overflow, appliance malfunction.
  2. Gray water – Category 2 – Can cause harm and illness to people. This includes water damage which has significant amounts of contamination, biological, chemical, or physical.
  3. Black water – Category 3 – Can cause severe harm or illness to people. Black water is highly unsanitary and contains pathogenic agents. Black water typically comes from beyond the trap, sewage backups, ground water, etc.

Can Water Damage Cause Mold?

Water damage certainly has the potential to cause mold growth. Mold thrives in moist environments with any moisture, especially high humidity areas. In order to keep energy efficiency, modern homes are insulated to reduce loss of energy. This also allows for moisture to stay hidden and not dry if not inspected properly.

Can Water Damage be Hidden? If so, What are the Signs?

Water damage is most often hidden. Some common signs of water intrusion are paint peeling, MDF base swelling, particle boards swelling, condensation, musky odors, damp or wet carpet, etc.

Home Safety Tips Against Intruders

How to Protect Our Assets from Intruders

The thought of a home intrusion or burglary is something that is everyone’s worst nightmare. Our homes are not built to be completely intruder-proof. The good news is you can take action to minimize the chances that your home will be attacked. Check out some home security tips below.

  • Look for weaknesses around your home- Inspect the outside of your home for anything that could make it vulnerable to burglars. For example, ensure that screens are secured, windows don’t easily pry open, or left open. While you’re outside, look through your windows to check if your valuables, such as electronics or jewelry can be easily spotted. By moving them out of view this  could deter thieves from entering your home.
  • Trim shrubs and trees in your yard- Burglars can use untrimmed shrubs around your house to cover and hide. Trees and bushes can be used to gain access to the second level as well. Robbers could use long tree branches to break into your home. Thus, keep your shrubs and vegetation trimmed ­– under two feet in height and at least two feet away from the house. 
  • Install a fence- Intruders rarely want to jump over fences while carrying stolen goods. If you don’t have a fence already, build one to keep unwanted visitors at bay. Choose a style like an open chain-link or ornamental metal fencing that’s secured into concrete. If solid fences are installed it may be easier to climb and may offer thieves a place to hide.
  • Use curtains or blinds on windows- Keeping your goods inside is a good idea, but you also need to ensure they can’t be seen from the outside. Put up curtains or blinds in your home, in your garage, and in front of basement windows for privacy and protection.
  • Keep windows, doors, and gates locked- Never leave your garage door open even if you’re at home!! Invest in a quality padlock for your outside entrances. On the outside fences install latches with locks on top and bottom. This will ensure the fence wont be able to pry open. To reinforce your doors, install deadbolts in addition to locks on the door handle itself. Don’t leave your home without locking the windows and doors, even if it’s a short trip.
  • Have large numbers for your house- Install large and reflective numbers on both your house and mailbox. This helps police easily identify your home in case of an emergency. Crooks prefer homes that are hard to identify as it can buy them time to run. 
  • Secure valuables in a safe- A good safe not only keeps your valuables safe from theft, it also keeps them safe from flooding, fire or other disasters. If you have a small safe or lock-box, consider bolting it to the floor to prevent thieves from taking it. Also, keep your safe in an area of your home that’s hard to access.
  • Install a home security system-  In today’s market home security systems are not only affordable but very easy to use! Home security system can be customized with tons of features. From the basic doorbell wireless camera, to the intricate full home security system with door and window sensors and 12+ camera systems. In addition to the security system, install sensor lighting outside your home. This can help deter thieves as it gives light to the area occupied. 
  • Get a dog- A large breed such as a German Shepherd is the ultimate security system. They provide advanced warning of thieves and can be reliable during power outages. Thieves hate noisy and protective dogs. (Please train your dogs to respect your local ordinances. We Love all animals!) 
  • Befriend your neighbors- It helps a huge deal to know that your neighbors are on the lookout for suspicious activity around your home. You should do the same for them! Get to know your neighbors so you can tip each other off in case a thief sneaks into your neighborhood.

By putting these tips into practice, you’ll hopefully discourage unwanted intruders from entering into your home. The fewer weaknesses your home has, the less likely it is to get robbed.

Coronavirus Cleaning

Coronavirus Cleaning & Disinfection

The worldwide Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has people scrambling to protect themselves, their homes, and businesses from potential contamination. The effects of the biohazard situation can last up to a couple weeks and the continued spread of the disease has led to a growing number of fatalities in the U.S. Pursuit Restoration is your industry leader in biohazard and infectious disease remediation, including Coronavirus disinfection. We deliver the highest professional standards as possible. We are ready to respond to any emergency 24/7 throughout the Treasure Valley.

How Do We Clean Coronvirus?

Coronavirus has quickly gained a reputation for being infectiousness and quickly spreading. It can survive on surfaces for up to a couple weeks and people who get infected may not show symptoms for up to 2 weeks after the infection. This makes it extremely difficult to track and isolate the spread. This is why having a trusted professional and biohazard remediation company on your side is important. 

Pursuit Restoration strictly follows all OSHA regulations, is certified by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning & Restoration Certification)and follows the most up to date and current procedures when it comes to COVID-19 cleanup or any other hazard. Coronavrus is still novel, therefore we are continuously consulting with the CDC (Center for Disease Control & Prevention for up to date solutions. We utilize CDC and the EPA approved disinfectants.

Disinfecting Coronavirus

  • We use EPA and CDC approved industrial-strength disinfectants with a broad spectrum bacteria killing claim.
  • All infected materials are cleaned, disinfected, and properly disposed of as a biohazard.
  • Full PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) including a full face respirator. 
  • We adhere to strict coronavirus decontamination process for our equipment, trucks, and all disposal bins.

Disease outbreak is an extremely serious situation and we understand that your health and safety is the number one priority. Call Pursuit Restoration to make sure your home has been properly disinfected at 208-515-6503.

Contact Us Today!

WE CARE ABOUT THE SAFETY OF YOU, YOUR EMPLOYESS, YOUR BUSINESS AND YOUR COMMUNITY

When selecting a company to provide Coronavirus Disinfection services, it is important that you select a company like Pursuit Restoration, that is OSHA compliant and follows the most up to date CDC guidelines for Coronavirus. 

“Each employer shall furnish to each of its employees and a a place of employment which is free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to its employees.”

This is stated from OSHA under the General Duty Clause, 29 USC 654, section 5(a)(1)

The coronavirus is not listed as an exception to recording illness in the 29 CFR 1904.5(b)(2). This means that if an employee contracts Coronavirus from another employee or through exposure on a job site it must be recorded for that business with OSHA.

There is a requirement to contact OSHA to actually REPORT a fatality or hospitalization if it is from Coronavirus. In the case of a death, an OSHA inspection and investigation would follow and could result in a fine if the company didn’t take measures when they knew about it and should have.

What is Remediation?

Biohazard remediation  could sound like standard cleaning to some. In reality, the two services are very different. Biohazard remediation refer to the removal, cleaning, and disinfection of blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially harmful pathogens in the affected areas after a death, accident, or communicable disease spread. The high exposure risk to pathogens makes Biohazard remediation a specialty service that requires proper training, equipment, certification, and licensing. Without the proper training, equipment and certifications the risk of spreading a pathogen is very high.

3-STEP Remediation Process

Pursuit Restoration follows a 3-Step remediation process. 

  • After a thorough inspection has been done proper containment is set up with an AFD( Air Filtration Device) with claims to clean air up to 99.97% microns. This is smaller than smoke particles. 
  • All Technicians wear complete PPE, including but not limited to a full suit, gloves, full face respirator. 
  • Then the cleaning and removal process starts which includes the use of cleaning products and cleaning agents approved for health and safety remediation.

We stand behind our work with a 100% Customer Satisfaction. We are diligent and thorough because we understand that the health and safety of you and your family are on the line. Contact us at 208-515-6503 for immediate Coronavirus disinfection.  

Disclaimer: Though Pursuit Restoration follows the CDC and EPA guidelines for disinfection and cleaning of the Coronaviurs at this time there is no testing to confirm with certainty total elimination of the coronavirus. Pursuit Restoration guarantees that its cleaning will reduce the spread and threat of the infection. However, it can not guarantee with 100% certainty complete eradication.
