If a terrorist network is attempting to use a mind-controlling ray on a large city populace, Captain America, Wolverine and Thor may be the perfect heroes to combat evil and save the day, but who do you call when you have toilet backflow, water damage from a pipe burst or your crawl space has been flooded by a storm and mold spores are growing? A young man named Rafsan faced all three of these problems at once, and what did he do? He shined a toilet logo in the sky and within 45 minutes Captain Restoration was on scene to battle Lord Water Damage, The Sewage Punisher was taking swings at Fury the Toilet Clogger, and The Amazing Drying Man was quickly reducing the villain Spore down to nothing!

A Super Hero for Water Damage

Captain Restoration wouldn’t be a true super hero if he didn’t warn the public about water damage and give tips on how to avoid it. According to the top water damage company, most water damage fiascos in Connecticut result from one of these three assailants: bad weather, failed plumbing and appliance malfunctions. Captain Restoration is always busy, as defeating Lord Water Damage requires him to detect the culprit, fix it, and restore the home back to its original condition. But there are some steps homeowners can take to reduce the likelihood of Lord Water Damage causing thousands of dollars’ worth of devastation.

What Should I do when a Storm is Coming?

When local weather forecasts a big storm, head to your local hardware or home improvement store and pick up some sandbagging materials and plywood to nail up over your windows. Sandbags will help prevent water from entering your home, and boarding your windows will prevent strong winds from blowing debris into your glass and shattering shards all over your family members and possessions. You should also have your roof inspecting prior to the storm for any signs of weakness, and have it repaired or at least reinforced. Finally, clean out your gutters and make sure your downspouts are aimed away from the home. Once you complete these tasks, the menacing Lord Water Damage will be on the run!

A Superhero for Sewage Damage

Sewage back flow is one of the vilest incursions to damage a home. In fact it is so revolting that Dante even described hell as a place where sinners were made to deal with black water for an eternity. When Furry the Toilet Clogger strikes your home it is vital that you know what to do. Never attempt fighting him on your own, as raw sewage contains a number of viruses and bacteria including E Coli and homeowners can make matters worse by cross contaminating other areas of the home. The first thing to do is call a licensed sewage cleanup professional—a team of pros can safely restore your home leaving it sanitary and fresh. Going forward, the Sewage Punisher has some tips to help keep fecal monsters from entering your bathroom:

  • Have your plumbing inspected for signs of cracking or bulging
  • Only flush plumbing-graded tissue
  • Make sure no tree grows within two meters of your sewage line
  • Avoid pouring grease or oil down the toilet

When these tips are followed your likelihood of avoiding a sewage disaster will increase and you can have that peace of mind knowing you are doing all you can to keep your family healthy and safe.

A Super Hero for Mold

Mold is nothing to take lightly, as it causes millions of illnesses every year and even a number of recorded deaths have been registered by various disease control agencies. If you have a musty smell in your home, the rooms have moisture in the air, or you detect black spots in between tiles or on your walls, call for a free mold inspection immediately. Prolonged exposure to black mold can cause respiratory complications, lung disease and asthma. When you call a mold-fighting super hero from a company that is licensed, insured and bonded, they will run a thorough test in every room, inside your walls, under floors and even test for mold spores floating in the air.

How can I Prevent Mold?

Make sure none of your pipes or appliances are leaking—mold thrives in areas rich in moisture. Also be sure to check around doors and windows for gaps where moisture may have crept in. Mold monsters are especially fond of humid environments, so make sure your home is properly insulated. Investing in a few room dehumidifiers will also help safeguard your family’s health and your house’s integrity!
