Most water damage companies miss critical elements when it comes to complete and effective water extraction and drying.
Buildings act the same way that sponges do when water is introduced; just because there aren’t any visible signs of water damage doesn’t mean that the building is completely dry. Attics and basements are especially tricky when it comes to detecting and locating hidden moisture, and if the conditions allow it, mold could easily take hold and grow in these areas.
That is why it is vital to contact water damage experts in Athens AL that will properly utilize ALL ASPECTS of water damage restoration to properly dry your property and make sure there is no secondary damage. As an expert water damage restoration company near you, we can help you with any incidents involving a broken or leaky pipe, bathtub overflow, sink overflow, toilet overflow, air conditioner leaks, refrigerator, washing machine, water heater, or dishwasher overflow, sump pump failure, hardwood floor water damage, or flooding from storms.
Our certified water damage technicians in Athens AL dive deep into the building’s structure and measure moisture at the insulation, stud, and sill plate levels. They will then create a moisture map of the areas affected by the water damage loss and consistently monitor the moisture content, temperatures, and relative humidity in order to prevent mold from growing and spreading.

Sewage damage in Athens AL is destructive to both residential and commercial properties in a variety of ways. Sewage can come from your sewer drain in your basement, your drain pipes to your sink, shower, toilet or washer, a leaking wax ring on your toilet, and even from your toilet bowl.
There are serious health risks associated with sewage damage because it can contain high amounts of harmful bacteria. Coming in contact with raw sewage or fecal matter can destroy your personal belongings, cause severe damage to your property, and cause disease. Contamination can cause significant damage just from breaking into a property, but if it is left standing the damage will increase, putting your property at risk of further damage.
Only trained professionals with the right equipment should handle any amounts of sewage cleanup. Our certified sewage backup cleanup & removal specialists are trained to hygienically clean, disinfect, and sanitize your property. When you need sewage backup cleanup, it is important to seek professional help in Athens to clean, sanitize and restore your property immediately. We will provide you with sewage removal and sewage cleanup to keep you and your loved ones safe.
Water in basements, as well as crawl-space water damage, can be a very serious water cleanup matter and go unnoticed for extended periods of time. If basement flooding has persisted for more than 48 hours there will probably be mold growth, wet drywall, and the flooring and carpet will most likely need replacing. Generally, damage in basements are caused by internal appliance failures such as water heaters or washing machines, or external factors that cause frozen pipe water damage or heavy rainstorms.
It’s important to have a professional water damage restoration technician who understands how to perform water extraction, cleanup, and basement and crawlspace drying to come and take care of the basement flood damage as soon as possible before more damage occurs. If you have a flooded basement, do not hesitate to call us immediately to start your basement water damage repairs in Athens AL.

Invented by Charles Cressy, the President of Water Out Drying Corp, the process was granted a patent in 2003. This revolutionary drying process improves over conventional dehumidification processes in many ways. The most important improvement is time. The sooner a flooded building can be dried the greater the benefit to the property owner and insurer. Most building contents will not be ruined by the effects of water, providing they are quickly dried. Valuable time, building contents and costly reconstruction can be saved using Water Out. The likelihood of mold growth is greatly reduced with rapid drying.
Over four thousand buildings of every size and construction have been dried using Water Out equipment. A single Water Out trailer will remove 100 pounds of water per hour and use a fraction of the electricity required for either refrigerants or desiccant dehumidifiers. One Water Out trailer uses 115 volts at 9-14 amps, about the power consumption of a typical household appliance. A desiccant dehumidifier with the capacity of a Water Out trailer would need 3 phase power and a huge amp draw. With desiccant dehumidifiers a large diesel generator is required in nearly every situation.
The outside air is conditioned within the Water Out trailer and introduced into a flooded building at about 2% RH (relative humidity). This super-dry air is circulated through a flooded building and then exhausted to the outside. This “open drying” concept leaves a clean, dry building in only a few days. Refrigerant and desiccant dehumidifiers are “closed systems.”
A Water Out trailer can be easily transported, set up, and operated by a single trained technician.
By contrast, a “closed” dehumidification system recycles the same indoor air over and over and allows unpleasant odors and mold spores to build up. Closed dehumidification systems can spread contaminated air throughout a building and transfer biological contaminants from one job to the next. Drying with fresh outside air or recirculating contaminated air, the choice seems clear, Water Out wins hands down.
Water Out is quiet too! Inaudible from more than twenty feet, Water Out will not disturb neighbors.
