St. Louis Water Damage Restoration
AdvantaClean of Two Rivers Water Removal
AdvantaClean was established in 1994, and since that time, it has opened dozens of stores across the U.S. We're proud to say that we've now opened a branch for the residents of St. Louis. We know how frequent floods can be in this area, which is why one of our specialties is water damage restoration. Let us tell you more about it below.
Our office is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to respond to calls. Besides flood damage, we can address water damage caused by leaky pipes and bathroom disasters. No matter how extensive the job is, the process always follows a certain rough pattern.
Water Removal Process
The first thing our team will do is get your furniture, curtains, rugs, and other movables out of the water. We can then dry these and the rest of the interior using fans and dehumidifiers. When faced with major flood damage, we can pump out the standing water. This is vital because the longer the water lingers, the greater chance it will have of creating mold.
Since water damage can easily reach the walls, we'll dry them out. We know what methods to use on concrete, wood, drywall, and other types of walls. If your walls were painted with an old lead-based paint, rest assured that we can work around this hazard as we're EPA-certified for lead-safe practices. You can count on us for drywall replacement and even mold encapsulation if mold has become ingrained in the damaged wall that it can't be removed.

Water Damage Restoration
We'll then proceed with water damage restoration. Anything that can be salvaged - furniture, upholstery, curtains, carpets, and other belongings - will be taken outside to dry. We'll wipe down what we can with chlorine bleach and sanitize it afterwards (since bacterial contamination so often goes hand in hand with water damage). We'll steam clean carpets and rugs.
If drywall needs to be removed, our team will handle it. We can even remove walls with lead-based paint, as we're certified by the EPA for lead-safe practices.
Water Damage PRevention
With flood damage comes the danger of mold growth, which will pose a threat to the structure and your well-being. After the water removal and drying process, our company can set up dehumidifiers in areas like the basement and crawl space where moisture levels are already so high. At first, we may need to run it 24/7; we'll then adjust it so that it only comes on when humidity levels exceed a certain level.
If the flood damage was caused by a poorly sealed basement window, we'll fix the problem. As for plumbing repairs, we can recommend a service provider upon request. For a major improvement, you can always ask about basement waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation.
