Water Damage Restoration
Water mitigation is reducing or preventing the amount of water damage after a major leak or flood by use of processes like emergency water removal. Basically, it is the process of managing property damage. Water damage restoration is performed by a water damage service to prevent damage in the future.
Water damage is when a home or business owner receives large portions of damage to their property caused by water intruding and attacking materials. Rusting of metals, rotting of wood and growth such as mold growing are all results of water damage. Water damage is caused by things like flooding, storms and leaking pipes.

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 is not just an ugly nuisance, but can be a serious health risk. Some types of mold are quite toxic. All mold produces airborne spores. It usually begins as black spots. These can show up on almost any surface, and continues to grow if untreated. Mold cleanup is especially important inside walls or ceilings where it can continue to spread, increasing health risks, creating foul odors, and rotting away damp wood.
Mold is particularly especially dangerous to anyone with severe allergies or asthma. Almost any home can get mold even under ordinary conditions. All it takes is a little pocket of moisture such as a dripping pipe along with some mold spores from outdoors. It can survive in temperatures as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Ordinary mildew is usually on the surface only and can usually be killed and cleaned up with special cleaners or ordinary bleach.
If you suspect you have a mold problem, it’s important to call in trained inspectors as soon as possible. They’ll be able to identify infected areas and being mold remediation. They may recommend cleaning or replacement of building materials. If the mold is severe, local authorities may decide the property is not suitable for living until the mold removal is complete.
Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration
Fire is one of the most destructive forces to damage your home. Along with damage from fire, you are likely dealing with damage from smoke, soot, and water from firefighting efforts. Smoke can quickly permeate fabrics, building material, and carpet while the oily soot can leave permanent stains. The residue left behind from a fire is a biohazard that can etch glass, tarnish metal, and discolor appliances within hours. When allowed to sit, smoke and ash will cause corrosion and permanent damage while the water will lead to mold and bacterial growth.
While a fire can be very destructive, we are standing by with superior fire damage restoration to clean up smoke, soot, and water damage before the residue can spread and cause further damage. Our fire and soot damage technicians will remove contaminants and water and use commercial-grade chemicals to permanently remove the smoke aroma. Once the fire and soot residue is removed, water will be removed from your home to dry it out before restoration can take place.
Fast action is essential when it comes to fire. Contact us today for superior fire damage restoration to restore your home and remove health hazards and unpleasant aromas.
Sewage cleanup needs to be done immediately due to the nature of the mess. It can lead to diseases and a hazardous environment to those around the place.
The process of cleaning up a sewer system includes:
- Putting the solid waste into plastic bags and disposing of them well
- Soaking up the liquid parts into plastic bags
- Dispose of all the carpets and rugs
- Mop the area clean
You should call in a specialists like us to do the rest of the work. Keep yourself safe from contamination during the process
Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet Water Damage Restoration
Drywall water damage happens quickly, and when not promptly treated and dried, it begins deteriorating and needs immediate replacing. In addition to absorbing water and swelling up, a primary concern with drywall water damage is the growth of mildew and mold, both of which are associated with causing several health issues.
In addition to drywall water damage, which generally occurs in a structure’s walls or ceiling as a result of a leaking roof or pipe, carpet water damage can be extremely frustrating as well. Since many carpet manufacturers void any warranties when water damage is visible on the latex backing, professional steam cleaning and ozonation is almost always needed. A water damage hardwood floor will require professional restoration as well. The good news is, whether you have a water damaged ceiling or a water damage floor, a quality contractor will be able to restore or replace both and have your home looking like new.

Figurative P: These guys are the pros. Unfortunately I have had the need for this service twice in the last couple of years. They explained in English what they were doing and why and things went smoothly with their drying and with the insurance claim. I am a very happy customer.
