For any type of water damage restoration, it is critical to be able to move fast and effectively. Enviroguard has the right products to outfit your team to do. You do not want to waste anytime when damage strikes, no matter the situation.
If you know a storm is coming, it is crucial to prepare the surfaces to prevent them from water penetration. This can help make the aftermath of a natural disaster easier to clean up and manage.
Our product, X4, is designed for this! It is a penetrating sealer that weatherizes and waterproofs exteriors to minimize wind-driven rain from seasonal storms and hurricanes. Because X4 also repels salts, it also prevents freeze/thaw damage in cold climate zones.
It is also important that your crew it prepared to go on site safely with the correct PPE. Before you get to the job, make sure you think through what will be needed. We have got some recommendations to help your team stay dry and protected.

No matter the cause of the water damage, whether it be a leaky pipe or hurricane, it it important to clean it properly.
Try using our PreClean to clean the surfaces. PreClean’s combination of wetting agents, surfactants, and anti-redeposition agents makes the pre-sanitization/disinfection cleaning of low, medium and heavy soil loads on porous, semi-porous, and non-porous surfaces easy and fast.
