Flooding can do untold damage to your home or business. Flooding can occur in a number of ways, from natural disasters to burst pipes and water mains, and floods are the single most costly disaster in the United States. According to the National Weather Service, floods cause well over a billion dollars of damage every year.

The process of fire restoration can be very involved. Private homeowners and companies can often be devastated by the damage caused by this kind of event. One aspect that gives peace of mind, knowing when the right professional has been hired. That is one of the reasons why it is important to hire a company that is associated with the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).
The first step in the process is to clean up as much of the existing area as possible. If the area is not immediately cleaned, soot residue and permanent damage can be left behind. If the homeowner or business owner does the initial cleaning, it is important to follow these steps. When cleaning, always use personal protective equipment and open the area for proper ventilation. Clean from the ceilings to the floors and vacuum all floors and upholstery. Wash any items that are able to be laundered. Clean the outside with a pressure washer if available.
500 fungal species have been described as human pathogens that can cause infections.
The overall diversity of fungi is considerable. For example, the genus Aspergillus has at least 185 known species.
Molds spread and reproduce by making spores, which are small and lightweight, able to travel through air, capable of resisting dry, adverse environmental conditions, and capable of surviving a long time. Some molds are capable of producing toxins (sometimes called mycotoxins) under specific environmental conditions.
Although molds can be found almost anywhere, they need moisture, nutrients, little or no light, and little or no airflow to grow. Substantial indoor mold growth is virtually synonymous with the presence of moisture inside the building.
Extensive water damage after major hurricanes and floods increases the likelihood of mold contamination in homes & buildings.
- Extremely professional company! The crew did a phenomenal job today on our ceramic tile floor, getting rid of the wax, steaming, and polishing the floors! It was a long job but they left our floors immaculate! The front desk, Ivy, gave us updates on when they would arrive and communicated with us on any changes in their schedule. I highly recommend this company, and we will definitely use them again!!!
- We just had our tile flooring thoroughly stripped and cleaned. They did an amazing job and me and my husband are very pleased. They worked very hard and took almost no breaks. They arrived on time and the staff were extremely professional, respectful, and pleasant. I wish we knew about them before. We would have used them yearly. I highly recommend their service. They are a bit pricey but well worth every dime as they will leave your house immaculate. We will recommend them to all our neighborhood. It is rare to get such stellar service. We look forward to using them soon.
- I called Wow Total Cleaning's Emergency Hotline and the owner Gustavo immediately picked up. It wasn't some calling center that I had to wait for, it was a direct line to his cell phone which I really appreciated. They offered to come immediately in the middle of the night, but I was working with the insurance claims and so we started first thing the next morning.
- While on a 3 week vacation we had WOW come to our 4200 SQFT house and what can I say.............INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!! Even the Schmootz in the corners that accumulates was REMOVED! Every Horizontal surface was SPIC AND SPAN!!!! Floors polished....Blinds cleaned...Ceiling fans cleaned...and even the windows(INSIDE AND OUT)...They were ...ON TIME...PROFESSIONAL and they did an EXCEPTIONAL JOB!!!!!!!.....VERY REASONABLY PRICED as WELL.

- They did a fantastic job and were very professional. You could tell that they did it (and did it well) because they actually cared about helping more that just the money. They answered all our calls and were quick to get there after we first called them. Our house flooded, and they were quick and compassionate in their work to extract the water and take out damaged carpet and ceiling. I definitely recommend them.
