Joe and Lisa D'Amico started cleaning houses by themselves back in 1996. Lisa would be one hand deep cleaning a toilet and answering her huge cell phone with the other in order to book jobs. They did this for about 5 years until they had too many customers and they could not do it by themselves.
This was when Maid OK was born. Since then Maid OK has grown from doing 5-6 houses in a day to accommodating up to 40 jobs a day. Every business has it's ups and downs and Maid OK is not any different. At one point, when the recession hit, we almost had to shut the doors, and now we are back to more customers and services than ever before.
The newest member to our water and fire restoration family is Thomas Reece. He has been in this line of work going on 6 years. His background is extensive and represents our brand well. He is on call 24 hrs a day/7 days a week.
Inspection and Water Damage Process
You get home and your house is flooded. How in the world did this happen? You find out a pipe burst in the wall and the water is flowing out all over your living room. First thing you do is turn the water off. Next you need to call your hero's at Maid OK and we will rush out and start the inspection process.
Our technicians will come in and inspect the damage and take extensive notes to give to the insurance adjustor, our records, and for your own records. This step is crucial in order to start the process of getting the water and belongings out of the house. Our technicians are highly trained to get the house looking just like it did before the flood.
Removal of Belongings and Water Extraction
Our certified technicians will remove the items from the home or into another room to make sure these are not damaged. If they do show signs of water damage at the time or our arrival, we will apply heavy duty cleaners to protect them from further damage.
Maid OK's skilled workers will then begin our innovative process to remove the water. They will suction wall to wall all carpets, baseboards, and floors. This requires state of the art equipment to maintain a moisture level that is satisfactory for our industry. We remove all pathogens that could have invaded the home such as bacteria, insects, and mold.
Drying and Dehumidifying
There are some parts of the excavating process that is harder to remove than other areas. Maid OK has state of the art equipment that consists of air circulation technology. These help with both drying and keeping the humidity to a minimum.
Once areas are dried to Maid OK's standard, it is then sprayed with deodorizing chemicals and antimicrobial treatments to prevent the spread of odors and mold.
Depending on the damage the flood did in the home, Maid OK will get the home back to it's pre-flooded condition. Sometimes all it needs is for the drywall to be replaced and a good coat of paint.
Sometimes it is a major overhaul. Some rooms might need to be rebuilt and carpet replaced. No matter how big or small, Maid OK is here for your flooding needs.
