REQUEST A SERVICE
Flooding and water damage are unpredictable and, at times, severe. Mold can happen within hours, so it is imperative to remediate immediately. Steamatic Brouwer Brothers know that these issues do not just occur during normal business hours. Therefore, we have an emergency hotline (1-800-CLEAN54) and can address issues 24/7 as they arise.
Time is of the Essence
Shortly after water exposure, carpets can stain, furniture and upholstery can form mildew, and wood can swell and begin to rot. Mold and bacteria grow quickly in moist, warm environments. If you notice a mildewy odor, it could be a sign that mold and bacteria growth has already begun. In addition to movable objects, wet environments can present a health risk to people and a structural risk to portions of buildings if left unattended for too long.
Initially, all removable items must be taken to a dry location where they can air out and be inspected for damage. If necessary, we can help to remove and store items for a period of time. Then, we use special equipment to force air into the room to dry it quickly and remove all the excess moisture from the air. Once these steps have been taken, we perform an inspection to identify any damage caused by the water, and we look to see if there are any leaking or burst pipes that must be fixed. Then, we create a plan that addressed the extent of the issues and works toward a resolution.
At Steamatic Brouwer Brothers, we understand that your business matters, and getting you operational in the fastest, safest way is our main priority. We provide trained professionals and the commercial equipment necessary to:

How long does it take for your property to dry?
The amount of time it takes to dry your building materials depends on the following factors: source of water, types of building materials, current weather condition, how quickly emergency services begin, location, and duration. After consistent monitoring and evaluating the drying process, Brouwer Brothers Steamatic will determine when it is completed. There are no specific rules in determining exactly how long you will need to wait before you move back into your house, but we will work closely with you to ensure your comfort and safety.
How will you know that your property has been dried and restored?
You will know when your property has been restored because you’ll be told about it. Your property will be tested by our restoration equipment, and you’ll be informed if anything was found wrong, or if your house is cleared.
Will you need to move out of your property during our cleaning and restoration process?
Your insurance company will tell you whether or not you should move out while your house dries. You should consider the fact that air movers and dehumidifiers create noise that makes your house noisy for a few weeks. You should also be careful about how loud the machines are because they could disturb your family or pets.
