Sewer Clean-Up

Sewage Spills & Leaks

Cleaning up a sewage spill is not a do-it-yourself project. Raw sewage contains numerous airborne and bloodborne pathogens that can negatively affect health, essentially classifying it as a bio-cleaning task. This means that a spill or leak needs to be remedied immediately and that personal protective equipment is required when cleaning up the spill. Our technicians are IICRC certified in Applied Microbial Remediation and can safely provide proper handling and removal of the contaminated water.

To ensure a property that has been subjected to sewage is once again

inhabitable, HRS begins by extracting the water and solid waste. When the water is removed, the contaminated area is sanitized and any mobile property that is salvageable receives our content restoration services. We then thoroughly dry the area using industrial air movers and dehumidifiers, while using commercial-grade air scrubbers with HEPA filters to clean the air. If any mold is present, our mold remediation specialists will eradicate the mold ensuring the property is safe for habitation.

What are gram positive and gram negative bacteria?

When talking about bacteria present in the different water categories, some companies refer to “Gram positive” and “Gram negative” bacteria. It essentially refers to the construction of the bacteria’s cell walls. “Gram” is a reference to Hans Christian Gram – the scientist who developed the staining method to differentiate the two types of bacteria. An example of a Gram positive bacteria is Staphylococcus; an example of a Gram negative bacteria is Neisseria meningitidis which causes bacterial meningitis. Both Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria can be found in sewage water.

How does an air scrubber work?

An air scrubber moves air through progressively smaller filters to clean or “scrub” the air. The model HRS uses contains a HEPA filter cleaning the air of anything 0.3 microns or greater. We use an air scrubber on any job involving demolition, mold, asbestos, or negatively pressurized containment. When used in a sealed and contained area to remove contaminated air, an air scrubber is referred to as a negative air machine.

HRS Disaster Restoration Services – Phoenix

When disaster strikes, HRS’s 24 hour restoration services are here for your emergency cleaning and professional restoration needs. In addition to water extraction and water damage restoration, HRS offers the following emergency restoration services:

Fire Damage & Restoration

A fire can be the most traumatic and devastating experience a home or business owner ever faces. In a best case scenario, it can cause minor smoke damage; in a worst case scenario, it can obliterate an entire structure. HRS will help you navigate these stressful circumstances and bring your property back to a safely inhabitable state.

The fire damage restoration professionals at HRS are available 24 hours a day! By carefully following our proven procedures, we ensure your property is brought back to the safe, comfortable space that existed before the fire damage and smoke damage. This begins with a property inspection to assess the level of structural damage and content damage. We will report our findings to you and answer any questions you may have so you are fully informed and understand what results can be reasonably expected.

In simple terms, returning your home or business to its pre-fire state consists of three general elements: structural damage restoration, content restoration and/or removal, smoke mitigation, and odor mitigation. Making sure your property is structurally sound is a priority. If there are stability issues, our professional restoration team can provide full construction services to rectify the situation. We will also remove any of your belongings that have been burned beyond repair, including items containing synthetic materials. Any items that are salvageable will be repaired and returned both to minimize cost to the home or business owner as well as to help lessen the anxiety of loss; unsafe items will be disposed of. Finally, our disaster clean-up team will remove all smoke residue, including the pervasive odor. Our IICRC certified Odor Control Technicians will use odor removal techniques include thermal fogging, high-level ozone deodorization, and hydroxyl deodorization.

Mold Inspection, Testing, & Remediation

No homeowner or business owner wants to hear that they have mold. Mold spreads quickly and can cause severe respiratory problems, especially in infants, children, the elderly, and those with health issues. Depending on the extent of the mold, a property can even be declared uninhabitable due to the threat it poses to the health of the occupants.

Mold occurs in damp areas and is often caused by water damage or flooding. Mold can also be the result of a current water leak or improper water leak clean-up from a previous issue. Mold can be present in carpet, wall interiors, floorboards, and ceilings, as well as easily spotted locations. HRS’s experts will determine the source of the mold, remove all traces of the mold, and repair or replace the damaged structures, ensuring the issue that caused the mold is remediated.

Due to the possible toxicity of the mold in your home or business, it’s important to have mold removal handled by professionals. Our Phoenix mold remediation specialists are IICRC certified in Applied Microbial Remediation, ensuring all aspects of the mold abatement are handled safely.

Trauma/Bio

Trauma clean-up and bio-cleaning is not a subject people give much thought to until they need the service. When dealing with a crime scene at your home or business, or with the aftermath of a fatality, the emotional toll can be overwhelming. HRS professionals can help ease the burden of the situation by eliminating all trace of the death or incident. This includes removing unsafe items and substances such as blood, other bodily fluids, and filth, all of which can contain biological hazards. Sanitizing a trauma situation involves eradicating microscopic particulates such as bacteria and viruses to ensure a clean and healthy space. HRS Disaster Restoration follows IIRC s540 standards, providing the highest industry standard of trauma and crime scene clean-up. Our highly trained technicians will decontaminate your property, working in coordination with fire departments and police to help you through this process as efficiently and quickly as possible.

Our bio-cleaning professionals also specialize in remediating hoarding situations. Hoarding can be dangerous because it can put those in the vicinity at risk of fire, poor sanitation, and even structural issues in their home or commercial property in extreme cases.

Asbestos Abatement

Asbestos is commonly found in older buildings, both residential and. It can be found in numerous construction materials, including concrete, asphalt, roof shingles, pipes, siding, wall board, floor tiles, joint compounds, adhesive, and insulation. The US banned the use of asbestos in the manufacturing of most materials in 1978, which is why we assume properties constructed before 1980 could have asbestos present. However, it’s important to note that in our increasingly global marketplace, many building materials are imported from abroad, and not all countries have the same stringent guidelines as the US. Because of this, it is possible to come across asbestos in newer structures, especially commercial buildings.

The hazardous nature of asbestos abatement calls for professional remediation to ensure safe removal and disposal. HRS will extract all asbestos from your property to bring it back to a safely inhabitable space. Once the asbestos remediation is complete, our restoration team can rebuild the affected areas.

Reconstruction & Restoration

Handling a home or commercial property’s disaster situation requires both mitigating the issue and rebuilding the affected areas of the property. Once the emergency has been taken care of—whether it’s water damage, fire damage, mold remediation, trauma clean-up/bio-cleaning, or asbestos abatement—the property will need to be restored. This could include structural repairs, drywall, plumbing, electrical, and/or landscape replacement … just to name a few. As a fully licensed general contractor, we can provide these services to homeowners as well as commercial properties. Our work ranges from basic repairs to complex, multi-faceted projects.

Our reconstruction efforts extend to your belongings affected by the disaster. Our content restoration program will repair any salvageable items including furniture, clothing, and electronics.

Commercial Restoration

Dealing with a disaster situation at a commercial property type requires an additional skill set. Unlike a residence, commercial buildings have employees and, often, patrons that are affected by an incident such as a water event or smoke damage. HRS will provide the necessary remediation services efficiently and discretely. Regardless of when the damage occurs—during business hours or in the middle of the night—HRS is available to remedy the situation. Water damage … storm damage … mold remediation … fire/smoke mitigation … HRS’s professional technicians are ready to bring your property back to its pre-disaster state.

Even well-maintained properties can experience the need for emergency restoration services. Whether you manage or own a hospital, school, apartment complex, office building, hotel, church, or retail establishment, HRS can handle your situation and our IICRC technicians can give you the peace of mind that your property will be professionally repaired.

Our general contracting services include preconstruction services, value engineering, subcontractor solicitation and management, quality and cost control, change order management, safety plan and inspection, documentation management, status reports and record keeping, and project close out.
