Residential Water Damage:
Water damage mitigation is best left to those individuals who are qualified and competent for the task. The Sycamore Foundation LLC is one of the few IICRC Certified Firms in the central Kentuckiana area. We strive to offer every customer quality service, professional excellence and technical expertise.
Handling a water loss event without the proper training significantly increases the risk of mold growth developing or risking further damage to already sodden building materials. The “initial” extraction process is 80% of what is required to obtain a “timely” and successful dry-out. Nevertheless, the combination of selective demolition and the correct application of anti-microbial agents are major keys in keeping your family and home safe. Good mitigation is a blend of efficiency (time), site organization and industry knowledge.
Commercial Water Damage:
Water events in commercial structures often share the same mechanical breakdowns or causes that occur in residential homes. The culprit can be damaged plumbing, structural issues such as a cracked foundation or leaking roof, A/C unit(s), boilers or hot water tanks that have malfunctioned. The scale of water damage is usually LARGER than what's visible! Potentially thousands of gallons of water can be dispersed in minutes. The mess left from fire suppression and / or sprinkler systems alone can cost your business thousands every hour in the “loss of production” time alone.
Commercial water losses also offer their own unique sets of challenges. Damage to electrical components and expensive machinery often result in further “downtime.” These are words foreman and managers don’t want to hear. Allow the experience of The Sycamore Foundation to assist you and your staff to safely and quickly get back to your normal daily operations.

WATER DAMAGE FROM RUPTURED PIPES:
Hurricane season is notorious for causing families and businesses anxieties 8 months out of the year in our countries coastal regions. The Midwest and Great Plains have flooding and tornados which ravage countless structures every year. These natural phenomena are a direct result of global warming. Kentucky’s geographic location makes it especially susceptible to plumbing damage during the winter months. Sub-freezing temperatures resulting in freezing pipes cause significant damage during the winter months for the Bluegrass state. Sycamore’s staff is readily equipped to deal with such issues as well as educate our customers’ on what preventative measures which can be taken to aid in preventing such crisis.
One of the most traumatic events that can occur in your home is a sewage back-up. Sewage is especially dangerous due to the added element of water being mixed with biological waste. Pathogens can live considerably longer due to the presence of water. It is imperative that you hire a company who follows the necessary protocols set forth in assessing and remediating sewage losses. The Sycamore Foundation has the equipment, expertise and appropriate disinfectants to protect both you, your loved ones and / or staff from life-threatening bacteria, parasites or viruses. The Sycamore Foundation’s bio-remediation personal will work diligently to get you back to normalcy and a safe standard for living.
WIND, FLOOD and STORM DAMAGE:
Damage from “wind driven” rain and hail are types of water damage caused by high velocity winds. Hurricanes, tornados and windstorms are the usual culprits for this particular classification of water damage. Attics and elevated crawlspaces are normally the hardest hit areas during these types of water events. Buildings with aged dormers and soffits, deteriorating shingles, poorly fabricated gutters, deteriorating shingles and pre-existing siding and trim separation are often entry points for “wind driven” water occurrences. Those living or conducting business in flood zones or areas of elevated water concentration have an increased risk of flooding due to increased water tables and storm run-off. The Sycamore Foundation has been particularly trained to assist those families and / or businesses dealing with a deluge of this manner.
