Flood Damage Restoration – Saco, Maine

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

A Saco, Maine resident wakes up to a startling discovery. His basement floor is covered in water. Flood damage restoration services were in order. He set his washing machine to presoak his clothes while he took a brief nap, but little did he know, the appliance was faulty—the water supply line was in need of a replacement.  The initial pipe leak grew increasingly large as the days rolled by and now he was faced with a major dilemma. In a panic, he rushed to haul out all of his camping equipment, priceless heirlooms, and pet supplies to keep them safe from the flooding waters. Unfortunetly most of his items did suffer damage from the waterloss. He then called a few of his closest friends to help him remove the excess water from the basement. 

After his friends helped him remove the water, they advised that he call a team of professionals to help him with the flood damage restoration. His initial reaction was to tackle the job himself, with the help of his friends of course, but their reluctance to help, coupled with the horror tales of mold infestation, urged him to use his better judgement. After a few minutes of Google searching “flood damage restoration in Saco, Maine”, Soil Away Cleaning and Restoration appeared in their search. The five star rating and positive reviews won him over, so he decided to give the restoration team a call.

The team of experts arrived on the scene and inspected the basement for damage. Because the resident acted quickly, there was no need for mold damage repair. After a major water loss, the first 24-48 hours are extremely important – it can set the stage for the restoration process. The level of damage often depends on the urgency (or lack thereof) of the customer, and a slow response time can create the breeding ground for mold spores to take root inside the home.

For the first stage in the flood damage restoration process,  the room was inspected for the level of water damage as well as the source of waterloss. Once the waterloss was confirmed as a category 1 (clean water source that doesn’t post an immediate contamination concern) flood, the crew began working on drying out the area. To remove the moisture from the basement, dehumidifiers and fans were placed around the room to drive the moisture from the walls and floors. Next, direct drying equipment was used to force any remaining water from the structure. Lastly, the room was treated with an antimicrobial solution to discourage the growth of mold spores before it could take place.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
