Water Damage Restoration When You Need It Most
Jim Black Construction provides a rapid response to any water damage situation. When water is entering your home or business, every second counts. Don’t hesitate to call us day or night, because every moment water is in contact with your home’s walls and flooring makes the damage worse.
Your home is filled with porous construction materials like wood and drywall. These absorb water when contact is maintained, and they can even wick water and cause more damage. The longer you wait until seeking a professional response, the more extensive the water mitigation services you’ll need.
When you call Jim Black Construction for emergency water damage restoration, professionally trained technicians will be at your location as soon as possible to start resolving the situation.
Professional Water and Sewage Extraction
Once we arrive on the scene, the top priority is getting standing water out of your home or business as fast as possible. That’s why we use high-power pumps to extract large amounts of water in record time.
Our technicians have the necessary training and experience to handle these situations quickly and effectively. You shouldn’t try dealing with water damage yourself when water is still standing in your home.
Flood waters from outside and sewage backups both present a serious health risk. By leaving water and sewage extraction to the professionals, you can rest easy knowing that nobody is at risk. We have the necessary equipment and training to deal with these health and safety hazards the right way.
Jim Black Construction provides safe, fast, and thorough water and sewage extraction to make your water damage restoration go as smoothly as possible.
Complete Sanitization and Decontamination
If you’ve experienced flooding or a sewage backup but the water has drained from your home, that doesn’t mean you’re out of the woods yet. Numerous germs and contaminants from those waters will remain on surfaces and may have penetrated into any number of objects.
As part of our water and mold remediation services, we carry out thorough sanitization and decontamination. Our skilled team ensures that your home is returned to being a safe and healthy environment fit for your family to live in.
We use professional cleaning agents and equipment to deal with different materials and types of contamination. Our team also has the necessary training and experience to handle category three water damage caused by sewage, ensuring that this serious health hazard is dealt with safely and effectively.
Our cleaning and sanitization methods make your home liveable again and also eliminate lasting odors that are common in cases of water damage.
State-of-the-Art Structural Drying and Dehumidification
Walls and flooring can absorb significant water during flooding, sewage backups, or other events. When that water has time to sit, it can penetrate deep within these materials. There, it can cause mold problems months or even years into the future and can leave a persistent odor in your home.
Water extraction isn’t enough to deal with this problem. Wood and other materials can lock water deep inside to the point that ambient air can’t dry it out effectively. Jim Black Construction tackles this problem with state-of-the-art structural drying and dehumidification technology and methods.
With our drying and dehumidification technology, our team can remove the water that has become trapped inside wood and other materials. We have the necessary equipment to do this in a realistic timeframe that allows for your water damage restoration to continue moving forward.
While most homeowners would expect hardwood flooring to be a lost cause after water damage, our team can provide water mitigation services that include our specialty hardwood floor drying equipment.
We also have cavity drying equipment and thermal drying equipment that provide excellent results in a wide range of situations. Our experienced technicians are commercial drying experts who deliver long-lasting results in water and mold remediation.
Professional drying and dehumidification are essential steps in preventing mold growth in your home. If your water damage restoration is completed without removing this excess moisture, you could find yourself dealing with more mold remediation down the line.

Restoring Flooring After Water Damage
Flooring restoration is among the most challenging aspects of water damage restoration. Jim Black Construction implements a range of advanced methods and equipment to provide the best possible water mitigation services for any type of flooring.
Our team has the professional equipment required to deliver effective carpet cleaning and sanitization. Due to the nature of carpet, it absorbs water quickly on contact. This means that even minor water damage could leave you with lasting carpet problems.
By using the right equipment and cleaning agents, we can restore your carpet rather than replace it in most cases.
This is also true for hardwood flooring. Our specialized equipment makes it possible to dry out hardwood flooring after water damage, preventing warping, mold, and other long-term problems.
Other types of flooring like laminate and tile are easily managed during water damage restoration. The skilled technicians at Jim Black Construction ensure that they are properly sanitized and decontaminated to make your home liveable again.
Dealing with Asbestos During Water Damage
If your home or business was built before 1990, it may include a variety of asbestos-containing construction materials. This is even more likely in homes from the 1970s or earlier. If this is the case, then an asbestos inspection is necessary before any renovations.
When your home experiences significant water damage, there will be demolition and renovation involved in the restoration. Jim Black Restoration carries out asbestos testing to ensure that the area is safe to work in and provides professional asbestos abatement where asbestos is found.
