Not only that, but the longer you wait to remove the water, the more structural damage there is.

Whenever flooding occurs, dealing with it is arduous. Whether it’s a flooded basement, a burst water pipe, an exploding water heater or any other sudden disaster, you must react quickly. Cleaning and disinfecting the surfaces in your home after a flood is a serious undertaking. It is important that flood restoration be done properly to prevent further damage to the property and help prevent illness.
In addition to water removal services and water damage solutions, Lawton Construction & Restoration can help you get your home back in the best possible condition after a flood.
The Flood Cleanup Process
The first thing we do during a flood cleanup is assess what needs to be done. Our assessment lets us know how to proceed with repairs and water restoration to help you most effectively.
After the initial assessment, we start with water extraction. Drying out the room is key, so we work with dehumidifiers and other equipment to get rid of any remaining moisture. Once the drying is complete, we work on restoring your property, packing up your belongings, and demolishing any structures that need to be demolished.
Depending on the severity of the flood damage, we also provide other services, which include:
- Temporary repairs to stop the source of the flooding
- Sanitizing (if the flooding was caused by a burst sewer pipe)
When disaster strikes, we want to be there to help. That’s why we offer 24-hour emergency services for flood relief and flood recovery.
Sewage damage is an extremely serious problem, especially when the sewage leaks inside your home or office. This water is harmful because it contains fungi and bacteria and can cause serious ailment or discomfort.
To return a building to a safe and suitable place to live or work, proper sewage removal services are needed. Because sewage problems can occur at any time, Lawton Construction & Restoration offers 24-hour service, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Sewage Backup Health Risks
Wastewater contains biohazardous substances that can be transmitted to people through skin contact and inhalation. Exposure to wastewater can cause a variety of health problems such as including:
- Weil’s disease
- Legionnaires’ disease
- Allergic alveolitis
- Fatal kidney, liver, and blood damage
- Infection of the skin or eyes
Don’t wait to call our well-equipped, knowledgeable professionals to clean up and contain a potentially very dangerous “Class 3” black water spill.
How Wastewater Treatment Works
Our IICRC certified technicians are specially trained in the removal of sewage, dirt and waste water. They will remove and properly dispose of porous materials including: furniture, carpeting, bedding and any other items that have absorbed sewage.
After the wastewater is gone, pneumatic motors are turned on to blow moist air around the area. This is so our dehumidifiers can soak up moist air to keep your home or commercial building dry, preventing mold growth.
If the items are non-porous, such as tile or hardwood floors, we clean them. Our experts will use environmentally friendly microbiological products and biocides to completely clean the affected area. IICRC-certified cleaning procedures may also include the use of IICRC-approved disinfectants to ensure that affected areas are safe again. This service includes:
- Wastewater Treatment
- Complete structural drying
- Debris removal
Do I need to call in specialists to clean up water damage?
Water damage cleanup is a lot of work and most of it can be done on your own. However, the cost of time, supplies, and equipment rentals quickly escalates. In addition, you may need professional contractors to do the work in order to qualify for home and flood insurance reimbursement or for building permits. If you need expert help with emergency water clean up or you just need a second pair of eyes for safety, call Lawton Construction & Restoration.
