Knight Restoration Services' mission is to get your home or office dry and sanitary, help prevent mold from growing and get you back on the road to recovery.
Water damage regardless of the water source, is something that will not get better on its own. From the moment damage occurs, wood begins to swell, sheet rock begins to absorb moisture, contents are adversely affected and carpet and pad just spread the water across the floor. Water damage MUST be removed and the structure dried thoroughly.
Water damage can wreak havoc not only on your home or building, but also on your life. Whether your home or building has been damaged by flood waters or the structure has suffered a water damage due to burst pipes, water leaks, or even a toilet overflow, time is of the essence. Water intrusions cause damage to walls, floors, furniture, contents, and structural integrity of property. The formation of molds, mildew, fungi, and other potentially hazardous growth can occur if not properly taken care of. The longer you wait, the greater the amount of damage, and the longer it will take to get you back to a pre-loss condition. At Knight Restoration Services, our goal is to restore your structure, as quickly and efficiently as possible, to get you back to your pre-loss state.
Knight Restoration Services 24 hour Emergency Services will rush to get to your property to begin the water mitigation and restoration process. Utilizing state of the art drying equipment, meters, moisture mappers, and other industry technology, our licensed and insured technicians will communicate with you every step of the way.
• Identify Source/Type of Water
Contaminated water sources require specialized restoration processes. In addition, the source of water should be completely stopped prior to starting the restoration process other than the mitigation process.
• Survey the Extent of Damage & Inspect the Premises
Knight Restoration Services will inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure complete & proper restoration techniques. In addition, we will inspect for safety concerns which may or may not be evident.
• Emergency Water Extraction
It is important to remove as much water as possible from the structure. This will be completed with our specialized water extraction equipment.
• Measure Temperature & Humidity for Drying Analysis
The process of drying will use specialized drying equipment to remove moisture from the structure and contents of your property. This controlled drying system will reduce the relative humidity level which will help reduce any further property damage. Specialized drying equipment will be used to dry your property. The purpose of the drying equipment is to stabilize the affected areas, remove the moisture and bring the property back to a pre-loss condition.
• Daily Monitoring of Property
The property is safely monitored to ensure effectiveness of the drying process using state of the art moisture meters, thermal imaging cameras, and other specialty equipment.

Body fluids and other infectious waste pose a variety of threats to those who are exposed to them. There are universal procedures which require that all bodily fluids are treated as presumed to be infectious materials. All contaminants can remain a possible threat for many days and some can even remain active for several weeks. It is imperative that only trained and suitably protected personnel are engaged in this type of work. These situations can be extremely dangerous and must be approached with caution from both the technical and emotional standpoints. Our primary concern is the health and safety of the present and future occupants of the dwelling.
We have the training, technical skills, and sensitivity needed to deal with the special situation a trauma scene presents. Our professional staff is trained to be sensitive to the emotional needs of those involved. Often a great deal of stress is involved and has to be dealt with promptly and professionally. In these situations it is usually necessary for the occupants to evacuate the contaminated areas until the area has been restored. If you are uncertain of the biohazards in your area, it is best to leave the area until it has been determined that it is safe to return.

Mold spores, the seeding or reproducing bodies that float freely in the air are everywhere. They can grow on virtually any substance, providing moisture is present. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. There is no practical way to eliminate all molds and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.
Knight Restoration knows that of all the things that are beyond your control, one is not, MOISTURE CONTROL. Microbial organisms such as mold will eat most any organic materials and cause devastating health problems in an indoor environment where moisture is elevated and uncontrolled.
Knight Restoration can assess the problems and specify procedures to stabilize moisture, halt microbial growth, and begin proper protocols to remove (remediate) the problem at its source. Most of what has been said about mold that is true in recent years; even more has been said that is not. The reality is this; every building is different, its occupants are all different and there is no “one fits all” solution. We can develop a solution that is right for you.
Burst pipes, flooding, fire and smoke or storm damage! You hope it never happens to you! However, disasters occur all the time and the aftermath can be devastating in terms of property damage, business interruption and loss of customers.
Through our experience in the restoration industry, we have learned several basic facts about disaster preparedness:
1. If you will wait until the disaster occurs, you have waited way too long.
2. If you have failed to make a plan, you are at the mercy of others.
3. If you think you are safe and there is no need to plan, disaster will strike.
You can’t always predict when disaster will strike or the impact it may have on your business. Nevertheless, you can take steps to ensure a faster and more effective recovery if the unthinkable happens.
It all begins with a disaster preparedness plan and joining the priority client program:
The Priority Programs are disaster recovery plans for commercial business owners and property managers. Created and administered by Knight Restoration Services, the programs are tailored plans detailing recovery services performed should disaster strike your business.
Establishing your company as one of our pre-registered customers adds an extra measure of preparedness to your risk mitigation procedures and provides peace of mind in the event of a disaster. With a Priority Program plan on file, a single telephone call to our 24hour emergency number is all that’s needed to initiate immediate recovery services, to minimize service interruption, and to get your facility back up and running as quickly as possible again.
Knight Restoration Services specializes in the recovery and restoration of water-damaged books, documents, magnetic and micrographic media. We use the very latest in equipment, technology and methods to achieve consistent, superior results. Whether from flood, rain, water damage from fire or a defective sprinkler, our state-of-the-art facilities and our on-site disaster restoration teams are ready to serve you.
Why Should You Get Your Air Ducts Cleaned?
Answer: Because they get dirty!
In addition to normal accumulations of dust and dirt found in all homes through regular use, there are several other factors that can increase the need for air duct cleaning:
Some occupants are more sensitive to these contaminants than others. Allergy and asthma sufferers, as well as young children and the elderly tend to be more susceptible to the types of poor indoor air quality that air duct cleaning can help to address.
HVAC Cleaning Process
There are two key components to HVAC cleaning: breaking contaminants loose, and collection of contaminants.
HVAC system cleaning is not a complex process, but each job is unique. Where possible, access to duct interiors should be made through existing openings such as supply diffusers, return grills, duct end caps, and existing service openings. The technicians may need to cut access holes in the duct work in order to reach inside with various cleaning tools. Creation of these service openings, and their subsequent closure, requires craftsmanship and professional skills.
Antimicrobial chemicals include sanitizers, disinfectants and deodorizers that can be applied to non-porous surfaces in HVAC systems to address microbial contamination and help control odors. Only chemicals registered with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) can be used. These products should only be considered after mechanical surface cleaning has been performed and if the need for such treatment has been deemed necessary.
Knight Restoration Services understand that catastrophe’s can happen anywhere, at anytime.
Knight Restoration Services is prepared and equipped to handle the most traumatic catastrophes nationwide.
Those services include:
Preventing unauthorized entry to a dangerous environment reduces the possibility of injury to intruders and even neighborhood children. Several State Courts have held that the allure of wailing sirens, fire trucks, and burned out buildings may be considered and “attractive nuisance” when it entices children to such dangerous conditions.
This attractive nuisance doctrine places special responsibilities on property owners to ensure that children are protected from the dangers that they may encounter if they enter a burned out building without permission from the owner.
The possibility of severe injury is always present after a large structural loss such as a fire or vehicle impact. Injury that occurs after the loss to tenants, friends, neighbors, and inspectors can represent a significant exposure to the insured’s carrier. Stabilizing building components can reduce hazards such as unstable roofs, walls, ceilings, and wet electrical systems can represent a significant reduction in potential liability.
You invest a considerable amount of time, energy, and resources to maintain, protect, and increase the value of your business. Your facility is a central component in achieving success.
