WATER & SEWER DAMAGE

Water Damage Repair and Flood Restoration

When you call Fischer Restoration first, you will get a Seattle area restoration company with expertise in disaster clean-up and restoration. Our certified technicians bring the training and courteous attitude to make a difficult situation as stress-free as possible.

Water losses are categorized into three categories

1

A clean water spill relatively free of contaminants

2

A significant level of contaminants, but free of sewage. (Gray Water)

3

“Grossly Unsanitary” level of contaminants. (Black Water)

A Category 3, or Black Water, contamination poses the greatest health risk and requires the removal of any affected carpet. However, area rugs can sometimes be sanitized and salvaged by a qualified contractor such as Fischer Restoration.

You never know when stormwater or a broken pipe can suddenly flood your home or basement with water or sewage. Fortunately, Fischer Restoration offers 24-hour emergency water extraction services to remove the unwanted water and contaminants as quickly as possible and minimize the damage.

If you find yourself in the middle of a water emergency, Fischer Restoration suggests the following:

Try to stop the water flow

Remove as much excess water as possible

Towel-dry wood furniture

Relocate all moveable items to a dry place

Place wood blocks under furniture

Pin up draperies and upholstery skirts
