Water Damage Restoration
From burst pipes and leaky faucets to flooding caused from damaging storms, water damage is a potentially destructive problem and must be addressed right away. If plumbing issues and water damage are not taken care of immediately, electrical hazards, the growth of mold spores, and expensive structural damage may ensue. When your plumbing fails or a storm floods your home with water and causes an emergency water damage issue, water damage mitigation and restoration may be needed. If you wait too long to begin the mitigation process, soaked carpets, ruined furniture, and water damage cleanup could be the least of your worries. Call us now at 1-888-443-3110.
Water damage mitigation is the process of preventing or reducing the damage to your home in the event of a flood or serious leak. While some handy homeowners choose to tackle the mitigation and restoration process on their own, trained water damage repair professionals like us are needed to ensure a home is structurally sound and free of mold and harmful bacteria. Therefore, when you spot water damage in your home, you should remain calm and contact us right away.
Depending on the extent of the damage and the amount of water mitigation needed, you may also need to turn off the water main, turn the electrical breakers off in all of the damaged areas, protect the feet of your furniture, and remove any items that may stain wet carpet. Our water damage restoration specialist will take care of the rest.
Flooded Basement Restoration and Basement Flooding Repair
Spring is on its way, and for many homeowners, the end of winter often brings flooded basements in addition to flowers and longer days. When the overnight temperatures begin warming up, frozen ground begins thawing and water makes its way to the lowest point possible. This results in wet basements and hours spent dealing with basement flood cleanup instead of baseball, gardening, or anything else you’d rather be doing.
All too often, homeowners have walked down the steps to their basement only to discover a murky pool of water and basement water damage. Following the path of least resistance, water has a knack for finding holes and cracks in basement walls, leaving pools of water in basement and often the need for professional repairs. Beyond the cracks and holes, which can be found in most basements across the country, basement flooding can typically be attributed to heavy rains, poor drainage around basement walls, or sump pump problems. Sometimes, an unfortunate combination of all of these factors is to blame.
According to Flood Smart, a small 1,000-square foot home with only an inch of water in the basement can result in $10,000 or more in basement flooding repair and restoration costs. Due to the scope of the basement water removal, flood damage cleanup, and possible repairs, you should immediately contact a water or basement restoration specialist if you ever awake one day to find a dirty swimming hole in the basement of your home. With potential causes ranging from faulty plumbing to an improperly sloped foundation, a flooded basement restoration professional will identify and correctly solve the problem in no time at all.
Mold can quickly take root in your home following the introduction of any water source, whether it’s an overflowed toilet, a roof leak, failed basement waterproofing, or a hidden plumbing leak. Mold can spread throughout your home in just 48 hours and pose a number of health risks in addition to damaging your home.
We approach every mold remediation project with a tailored strategy that begins with an inspection and mold removal assessment. We will check for visible signs of mold and water sources, including leaks behind walls and damp subflooring. Several methods can be used for effective mold remediation such as negative air pressure and barriers to prevent mold spores from spreading during the mold cleanup process.
All mold and mold-infested materials will be removed carefully and safely with the use of HEPA vacuums and air scrubbers. Antimicrobial and antifungal treatments will be used to kill mold and prevent new mold from growing after contaminated materials are removed. Items that can be restored will be cleaned and sanitized to remove odors. Once mold remediation is complete, restoration will take place to restore your home fully.
Restoration after a fire can begin when your fire department tells you it’s safe to return. The first thing you should do is open windows and possibly turn on a fan to clear away any lingering smoke. Smoke is acidic as well as carcinogenic, and can also damage and stain surfaces. It can also contain harmful fumes from other substances destroyed by fire. At times smoke, and the water used to extinguish the fire, can do more damage than the actual flames. Proper fire damage restoration involves treatment for all three.
Don’t eat food that’s been exposed to heavy smoke. You may want to unplug appliances, remove valuables, and leave the home if smoke damage is extensive. Take stock of your belongings and take photos of the damages as soon as it’s safe. Unless the damage is slight, leave the cleanup to trained fire cleanup specialists. Rebuilding isn’t possible until proper restoration is done.
Sewage Cleanup and Restoration
A sewer leak is an emergency that most people don’t want to encounter. A sewer leak causes devastating effects like bad odor and contamination. Like a water leakage, a sewer leak will spoil your wall, furniture, and your floor upholstery. It also places you at a high risk of contracting a disease and even coming into contact with corrosive chemicals.
Experts advise that you avoid any contact with the water and contact a professional like us to help you clear the mess. A sewage restoration service provider will formulate an appropriate action plan to remove the mess and prevent cross contamination. After the sewage cleanup, your service provider will determine if the spill area is safe to occupy, disinfect the affected area, and dry out the room.
Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet Water Damage
When drywall is damaged by water, you’ll see brown stains, buckling, or blistering. The same is true of water damage to ceilings, including wood or tile. This may come from a leaky roof, requiring roof repairs as well as water mitigation. Replacing drywall is usually necessary. Painted surfaces may hide water stains. You may want professionals to check for mold and hidden moisture before repairs begin.
Carpet must usually be removed and replaced, including the carpet pad. Inspection of the subfloor should also be done. Call in a professional to assess the damage. Sometimes carpet can be salvaged with special cleaners and equipment, or only damaged areas replaced.
Calling a professional can reduce the time and trouble it takes to take stock of damage, initiate repairs, and get your life back to normal. Always document the damage and check with your insurance agent to see what’s covered. But above all, think safety first during and after home disasters.

Here’s What Our Customers Have To Say About Us
Adwin A: A piped burst at my mother’s house and when the fire trucks got there her house had plenty of water that had soaked her carpets and ran down through the ceiling to the basement. Her home was a wreck. I called and without 2 hours they were on the scene. They assessed the situation and began soaking up the water. They brought in fans, heaters, and everything to dry up the carpet, ceiling and floors. They left equipment to complete the drying process so there would not be any mold. They did an awesome job and I hope I never need them again, but for sure they are the ones I would call. Will recommend to all my family and friends.
Joanne D: Our house got flooded and as soon as my husband gave them a call, they were quick to have people over and start drying up our house before we got any damages. Their employees had great people skills and ensured us everything will be taken care of and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The guy that installed our ceramic floors after they did a great job drying up our house and cleaning everything up, did a fantastic job and our floors are gorgeous! I loved the fantastic customer service they have provided from the beginning to the end, and then some! we are definitely going to grow through them again with anything we need done with our house.
Luisa D: Fantastic experience… I was having sinus headaches and infections for the longest time. I was also starting to get vertigo and was convinced that it had to be related to maybe presence of mold in my house, maybe in the attic or the basement. The technician checked the entire house and told me there was no mold but (60percent) very high humidity levels . He installed an industrial size dehumidifier for 3 days and explained that it is essential to keep temperatures low during the summer in order to avoid the high humidity and eventual formation of mold. I then looked on the internet and found resent research linking high home humidity to respiratory illnesses such as sinus infections and vertigo.
Jessica S: I had a water loss to my home back in October 2015. My Master bathroom, master bedroom, and walk-in closet were affected. It was a total disaster! I was so worried about which company to go with to help get my house and family back to normal! This was our first experience with any type of significant damage to our home. I could not believe how quick, they all were to respond to our families misfortune. They graciously worked around our busy schedule, and were very knowledgeable of the work they performed. I have never been so satisfied with a business!!! They did a FANTASTIC JOB restoring my house back to normal! It is better now than it was before the water loss. I LOVE MY NEW FLOORS!!!!!!! Truly God Sent!!!
Anna J: Fast, reliable, friendly, and hardworking! The flooding started at 7pm on a Saturday and they were there within the hour. On top of all the fans and dehumidifiers they brought a back up sump pump to help keep our floors dry. They checked in daily and rolled out the “”paper”” carpet when they were working on the floors to keep things clean. I have a child and dog and they were extremely careful with their restoration process (ex. blocking off the area with plastic walls). They took charge in dealing with the insurance company via phone and in person when they came to estimate the damage. They also called and prepped the flooring company before we arrived to shop. Overall a great experience that I hope we don’t have to deal with again 😉
Eddie T: In April 2015 we had a leak in a bulkhead from the roof into our 16th floor condominium unit. The roof was not maintained properly and deteriorated to the point where the upper membrane cracked leaving massive areas of the insulation soaked with water. Despite it being their responsibility, the condominium association refused to act quickly to repair and stop the water leaks. From April through August the water dripped. On several occasions, the association tried to open the bulkhead without taking proper steps to provide for mold controls and containment . We called this technician who immediately stepped in, notified the association if proper procedures of the requirements for mold containment protocol, and despite the association refusing to pay, he both saved us from having our entire home contaminated and did an excellent job of containing, removing and treating the mold. I highly recommend him
