Initial Assessment and Safety Precautions

When professionals arrive to tackle the aftermath of fire and water damage, their first step is a thorough damage assessment. This crucial phase determines the extent of the damage and sets the plan for restoration.

Safety is paramount. They ensure the structure is secure and that there are no immediate risks such as weakened floors or contaminated air, which could pose a hazard.

Water Removal and Drying

Following the initial safety checks, the focus shifts to removing any standing water. This is critical as prolonged exposure to moisture can weaken structures and foster mold growth. Water restoration services employ powerful pumps and vacuums to clear the water swiftly.

The next step involves dehumidification, using industrial-grade dehumidifiers to draw out moisture trapped in the walls and floors, which helps prevent further water damage to the property.

Soot and Smoke Removal

The next concern is the removal of soot and smoke residues that coat surfaces and infiltrate air systems. Soot removal is a meticulous process that involves using special chemicals and techniques to clean walls, ceilings, and other surfaces.

Techniques for odor removal are also implemented to ensure that no traces of the smoky smell remain. Air scrubbers and foggers are used to treat the affected areas and restore fresh air.

    What Our Clients Say

    I have worked with Joseph from AAA Restoration a few times over the last few years and they are always a pleasure to deal with and get the job done in a cost affective and timely manor. I would definitely work with them again and recommend them.


    AAA Restoration took care of my mold problem from start to finish. They were professional , knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. I have been having a mold problem in my basement since we bought the home two years ago and we have worked with several mold remediation companies to try and get rid of the mold, it always came back 6 weeks later. It is now six month since AAA Restoration performed there work and the basement is still mold free. We can finally start using our basement without having to worry about our health. Thanks so much for everything. You have really earned a five start review from me.

    Sara Sicker

    I hired AAA Restoration to do the mold remediation in my basement. Within an hour of my initial call someone came out to give me an estimate and mold assessment report. Initially, I was not happy to find they charged for the estimate. Once I received the quote back that quickly changed. Lead Pros are extremely well priced. I’m talking a third of what their competitors attempted to charge me. They were also willing deduct the cost of the estimate off the final price of the job. I hired them on the spot after receiving the quote and they were on the job site within a week. As for the work itself, I could not be more satisfied. The supervisor was friendly and willing to ease the concerns of both myself and the tenants by answering an onslaught of our questions. Once the walls and floors started being torn down it became clear to them that to do the job correctly far more material would need to be removed than what was initially agreed upon. This was done at no additional cost to me which made it clear in my mind that they are dedicated to getting the job done correctly without trying to take advantage of their customers. The mold killing agent that was used was a green product so it was not necessary to vacate the premise during the time the work was going on. All contaminated materials were removed and hauled off site. Anything which could not be removed (structural support beams) were treated and encapsulated. They also used an air scrubber which was left running for 24 hours straight to ensure any disturbed mold spores would not further contaminate the air and job site. After the job was concluded I felt compelled to tip them for their great service. They wouldn’t even accept the tip! This is why I felt personally obligated to leave them this positive review. I am normally very skeptical of contractors so it is refreshing to find an outfit like this with integrity. They will absolutely be getting my business again should the need ever arise.

    I’ve used AAA Restoration multiple times for projects we’ve done. We’ve had renovation projects with mold in the crawlspaces, asbestos shingles and tile on another project, and lead on exterior paint of an older house. AAA took care of all these problems in a timely fashion and at a reasonable price. Happy to use their services and to refer them to others.
