ATLANTIS RESTORATION IS DEDICATED TO COMPLETING EMERGENCY AND STRUCTURAL RESTORATION WHILE FOCUSING ON DETAIL AND CUSTOMER SATISFACTION.
Over 70% of property loss is due to water. Whether it’s from a burst pipe, sewer back up, appliance malfunction, or heavy rain, Atlantis Restoration has the best technicians, equipment and expertise to ensure your home will be handled in a safe, efficient and timely manner.
At Atlantis, we encourage homeowners to call us as soon as a water escape has been discovered to prevent any secondary damage as mould can begin to grow in as little as 48-72 hours. Even a fresh water source can turn into something quite unsanitary depending on time or the migration of the water. Our project managers and technicians have the latest thermal cameras, moisture metres and biological contamination testing equipment to help us navigate where the water has traveled as well as categorize the sanitary level of the water in your home.
SEWER BACK UPS / FLOOD WATER
Sewer back ups and flood water are grossly unsanitary and can contain pathogenic agents such as bacteria, viruses and parasites. These claims must be handled with the utmost care and respect, as building materials such as carpet, laminate floor and drywall are non-restorable and must be removed and disposed of in a safe manner.
FIRE AND SMOKE
Fire damage can be very traumatic, and can cause both psychological and physical damage. Atlantis will help you return to pre-loss condition as quickly as possible, using the latest technology in air scrubbers and hepa vacuums. We will also remove any soot from the air and surfaces as well, in addition to any charred or damaged materials caused by the fire.
A heavy wind storm can remove shingles from your roof, as well as dislodge trees from the ground which can hit your home and cause severe damage. The team at Atlantis can provide emergency services to remove trees from your home, as well as temporary tarping and boarding to reduce further damage.
Mould growth is typically the result of water damage gone undetected or untreated for a long period of time. Although certain moulds can colonize as quickly as 48-72 hours, it is critical you address the situation as quickly as possible to prevent further damage.
Even common mould found in homes can carry mycotoxins which can cause symptoms such as: headaches, fatigue, nausea and respiratory problems. Mould growth is caused by spores released into the air and landing on organic matter in your home such as drywall paper, wood framing, leather furniture and carpets.
Mould growth will thrive if the area is wet, damp or has high levels of humidity, requiring specific protocols to remediate. At Atlantis, we provide trained and certified technicians to safely remove mould growth from your home.
Asbestos containing material include Vermiculite insulation (most common in attic spaces), drywall compound, linoleum, vinyl composite tile, ceiling tiles, and insulation around heat ducting.
Asbestos is considered hazardous to your health and must be removed correctly. WCB requires us to test for potential asbestos containing material if the building was built 1990 or older. At Atlantis Restoration we can provide you with the sampling and testing required to remediate the situation.
