Water and Flood Damage
Ready When You Need Us
Our trained first responders are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to help your organization respond to any type of property damage:
Water and Flood Damage
Ideal employs a fast, efficient, and thorough collection of tactics and methodologies to prevent more serious problems when water damage occurs. We use the latest industrial dehumidification and heat technologies to effectively dry impacted materials as quickly as possible. Our methods minimize the amount of wet materials that must be removed (drywall & insulation), helping to minimize the duration of the project and costs, as a result.
For contaminated water sources, such as a sewage backflow or any other unsanitary source, our trained technicians treat the area, with a focus on containment, negative air pressure, removal, and decontamination to keep facility occupants safe.
- Water extraction
- Structural drying and dehumidification
- Asset recovery (medical equipment, document recovery)
- Infrared thermal imaging and moisture mapping
Infection Prevention and Decontamination
Ideal works alongside your staff, facilities teams, infection prevention teams, and EH&S to design and install containment barriers, perform sensitive demolition and remediation, maintain air quality, and control the area while drying affected materials. We help you meet regulatory standards, minimize interruption to patients, and maintain visitor safety.
Our team is trained, equipped, and certified to handle a wide range of situations involving biological or chemical substance emergencies that are dangerous to humans and/or our environment including healthcare-associated infection, pathogen outbreaks, hazardous waste, rodent or bird urine/feces, chemical leaks or spills (e.g. industrial chemicals), among other hazards.
- SteraMist™ Technology
- Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) compliance
- Healthcare-associated infection prevention
- Indoor air quality and particulate control
Solutions to stop the spread of HAI’s
The SARS-CoV-2 virus and the COVID-19 disease it causes poses a risk to facilities of all kinds. To mitigate that risk, Ideal is proud to offer SteraMist™ disinfection treatments, a safe and effective technology originally developed by the U.S. government after 9/11 to combat biological threats. Powered by Binary Ionization Technology®, SteraMist destroys 99.9999% of viruses, leaves no residue, and is safe to use on sensitive equipment and electronics.
SteraMist EPA List N SARS-CoV-2 Emerging Viral Pathogens – EPA Reg Number: 90150-2
Mold is a health liability that damages building materials and contents. Proper containment and removal of existing mold growth and airborne mold spores is essential to preventing further spread, contamination, and damage. Ideal uses the most advanced methodologies and technologies to effectively contain, clean, and restore surfaces, materials, HVAC systems, and indoor air to ensure a healthy environment for your patients, employees, and visitors.
- Coordination of industrial hygiene protocol and testing
- HVAC remediation
- Remediation of contents when possible
- Negative pressure air barriers and containment
Lead and Asbestos Abatement
Asbestos and lead-based paint can still be found in many older buildings. These contaminants are often disturbed and released during renovations or uncovered during property damage restoration projects. As a certified and licensed asbestos and lead removal contractor, Ideal delivers the expertise and specialized knowledge you need to contain and remove these contaminants, get building repairs/renovations back on schedule, and ensure the space can be safely occupied as quickly as possible.
In the event of a water, fire, or other building emergencies, we can handle both the property restoration and asbestos/lead removal seamlessly, without interrupting the work for assessments or contractors, saving you time and money.
- Coordination of hazardous materials identification, monitoring and final sampling
- Adherence to federal, state, and local regulations
- Asbestos removal, disposal and/or encapsulation
- Hazardous waste transportation
Fire and Smoke Recovery
Even a small fire can pose immediate and lasting health risks for building occupants for weeks, months and even years later. After a fire, Ideal acts fast to address damage caused by the fire as well as suppression methods such as water and retardants. We also attack the residual issues they leave behind, such as smoke, char, and soot. These unhealthy irritants can quickly seep into every nook and cranny of your building and its contents. We employ tedious methods to ensure your property is properly restored and is left as clean and healthy as before the fire.
- Removal of charred debris, smoke, and odor
- Emergency board up and clean up
- Surface/air cleaning and deodorization
- Equipment and electronics restoration
Construction Engineering Control
When working in sensitive environments, controlling one’s work environment is of the utmost importance to keep dust or airborne pathogens from migrating to surrounding spaces. Ideal provides the professional guidance and equipment needed to control these workspaces for any contractor who wants to ensure safety to surrounding spaces. We partner with general contractors and building vendors to create a controlled environment in preparation for their tasks.
These engineering controls typically include:
- Soft or hard containment erection
- Installation of antechamber(s)
- Negative air pressure created by HEPA air filtration devices
- Laser particulate or DOP testing of all HEPA equipment
- Measurement of air pressure differentials; daily or 24/7 monitoring
