What to do after your home suffers water damage

Our team specializes in water extraction, cleanup and repairing water damage so give us a call us as soon as possible for help when your home suffers water damage.
How to best care for your tile floors
At least once each week, sweep or vacuum your tile floor to remove as much dust and debris as possible. Then, damp mop to eliminate any built-up dust and dirt to prevent abrasion. Clean glazed tile with an all-purpose non-oily cleaner and remove hard water deposits, mildew or soap scum with a multipurpose spray cleaner. Use only specially-formulated cleaners for unglazed tiles. Avoid wax- and oil-based cleaners and detergents and do not use harsh cleaning aids like scouring pads or steel wool.
Clean the siding of the wall before repainting it
Dirt and even road salts can stick to the siding of your exterior walls and affect their look and feel. As part of your painting preparation, you need to clean the surface properly. You can dissolve a cup of liquid detergent into two gallons of water and use a soft-bristled brush to wash the wall cladding. Rinsing is also very important. You can use a hose, but you must be gentle. Make sure the surface is completely dry before applying the new coat of paint.
