The Water Damage Clean-Up Process

A trained Flood Department technician will arrive at your property in uniform, introduce themselves and lay out a mat to prevent tracking dirt and debris in and out of the area. 

Upon entering your build, our professional moisture detection equipment will be utilized to evaluate the area and document conditions inside and outside. We will also assess the moisture levels in materials in the affected and unaffected areas. This step is important for both the remediation process and dealing with the insurance company.  

Our technicians will evaluate and document the source, reason and time that the water intrusion occurred and also catalog any visible material deterioration, pre-existing damage and microbial growth.  

Once we establish moisture content and drying goals for the affected area, we will let you know the plan and begin the restoration process.  

 We will work with you to restore your home or business back to wonderful condition and let you get back to life as normal.   

Mold Remediation

Mold is a serious health hazard. Flood Department knows how to safely remove and clean contaminated materials to reduce the emission of fungi and contaminated dust. We can also perform mold remediation on more dangerous types of mold, including black mold.
Mold 101
  • Mold is present throughout the exterior and interior of most homes and is not inherently dangerous.  
  • Mold spores are invisible to the naked eye and can enter homes through windows, doors, HVAC systems or pets.  
  • Mold spores need moisture to grow, and they can grow rapidly when exposed to moisture.  
  • Before mold remediation can occur, water and moisture sources must be determined and removed or limited. 
  • Humidity levels above 45% can cause mold to thrive.
  • Several types of mold, including black mold, are incredibly toxic to humans.   

Flood Department is an experienced water damage and mold remediation service, providing rapid response services to homeowners and business owners throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, D.C. 

We are proud to be locally owned and operated, and we have helped hundreds of customers get their lives and homes back to normal in the aftermath of a tragedy.   

The Mold Remediation Process

Stop the moisture source. If there is still moisture present in your home, any attempts at mold remediation will be unsuccessful. 

Isolate the part of the home with moisture and mold to minimize the likelihood of spores spreading to other areas.

Professionally filter the area using a combination of HEPA air filters and negative air machines. These machines will run for the duration of the mold remediation process as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), gaseous compounds and other airborne pollutants are removed.

Contaminated materials that cannot be cleaned will be removed. Sheetrock, carpet, furniture and other damaged materials will be treated or removed to prevent mold from returning.
