Mold growth becomes a concern if drying is delayed. Faragon responds immediately and dispatches our professionals to every water emergency call, 24/7.
Faragon relies upon psychrometry a scientific approach to drying, which utilizes the data collected to control and guide the drying out process.
There are many considerations when conducting a successful structural drying project. The use of specialized drying equipment, operated by Faragon’s professionals, specifically trained in its use, is only part of the equation. Putting a solid plan together makes up the rest.

Deflooding and Pump Out Service
When a flood happens in your property, the dry-out process is quite involved. Faragon deflooding pump out service is frequently required.
Faragon uses industrial pumps and vacuums to remove standing water, which can amount to thousands of gallons, depending on the severity of the water intrusion. As with any water event, beginning this process as soon as possible is a major factor in minimizing the damage to your property.
Once the majority of the water is pumped out, Faragon will continue the water extraction process using specialized equipment to detect and dry out the remaining moisture within the structure.
Upon the completion of the dry-out process, Faragon will carefully inspect your property for any additional damages.
Hardwood Floor Drying
Water intrusion in areas with wood floors creates serious concerns, permanent structural damage and mold growth are likely to occur. Water can warp wood planks and cause buckling, which can be permanent. Moisture levels, and ambient temperatures along with other factors provide an ideal environment for mold to grow, which can cause property damage and health risks.
Acting fast is imperative.
Faragon provides remediation and abatement services for mold, lead and asbestos. We adhere to all local, state, OSHA and EPA guidelines for every abatement project. Our industrial hygienist partners uphold the highest standards in the public and environmental health fields.
Mold can grow quickly when water or moisture is introduced and remains for any length of time, whether from a flood, leak, natural disaster or some other cause, it can pose serious health risks and potential structural damage.
Mold abatement requires knowledgeable professionals who understand the dangers and issues involved with its removal.

Faragon Restoration takes a conscientious approach to lead abatement, ensuring safe removal and disposal from start-to-finish. Our team uses advanced technology and is specifically trained to perform all lead abatement procedures according to strict OSHA and EPA guidelines.
Lead can still be found in paint used in older homes and commercial buildings. Industrial emissions, drinking water, dust particles and dirt are also sources for lead exposure, because lead is found in surface and groundwater and in some forms of soldering material found in older plumbing systems.
Lead, when ingested, is a known cause of health risks. Lead abatement requires careful attention by specially trained professionals.
Faragon Restoration conducts asbestos abatement services with safety as our top priority.
Our team of professionals is highly trained in the most current industry methods and techniques to successfully investigate and complete your asbestos abatement and remediation project.
Asbestos, used in building materials for residential and commercial structures prior to the early 1980’s, is considered a carcinogen. Asbestos is typically discovered when materials containing it are disturbed during renovation, remodeling, demolition or after a natural disaster.
Faragon understands the risks involved and takes the necessary precautions to safely and responsibly remove asbestos from your affected property.

Fire and Smoke Damage
Without a doubt, a fire on your property is devastating and the trauma and costs involved are far-reaching—affecting you, your life, your business and your customers—loss of belongings, loss of business operations and so much more.
This is not a clean-up job for a janitorial service; fire loss involves much more than surface cleaning. Comprehensive treatment by expert remediation and restoration professionals is vital—that’s where Faragon Restoration is qualified to help.
Causes of damage include:
- Toxic smoke
- Acidic soot
- Mold and mildew
Smoke, soot and odors permeate upholstery, draperies and carpet and are a health risk to every person who may come into contact with them; they must be neutralized and deodorized. After a fire happens, mold, mildew and corrosion caused by water used to extinguish the fire can be found deep within a structure, which compounds the problem and accelerates the deterioration. Careful evaluation is not an option; it’s a requirement.
Faragon Restoration proudly deploys our highly trained professionals using the latest equipment and advanced technology for fire remediation and recovery. We provide comprehensive service in your time of need—from the initial emergency to final reconstruction, as quickly as possible, with minimal disruption.

Thermal Infrared Camera Assessment
Thermal camera technology is an advanced, non-invasive tool that allows Faragon to detect and locate moisture in structures not easily detectable using conventional methods. With this specialized technology, we can locate plumbing leaks, hidden roof leaks, wet insulation and moisture intrusion at the foundation and throughout the structure. With the use of thermal infrared camera inspection, we can offer our valued clients a less invasive moisture detection and restoration project, which saves them time and money.
Thermal infrared cameras combined with the use of moisture meters give Faragon Restoration an advantage—the ability to make well-informed decisions about the condition of your property.
