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 services will be needed after moisture accesses a space following a rainstorm or snowstorm. Usually, after ice melts and soaks the ground next to a basement, hydro static pressure builds up. This process occurs when the moisture that’s found outside a home exceeds the pressure that’s present in a basement.
The weather patterns greatly influences how frequently flood repair services will be needed in a basement. Whenever major storms impact your area and cause flooding, restoration and flood damage cleanup services should be pursued quickly in order to preserve highly valuable items. As dedicated service technicians, we always work hard throughout basement flood cleanup and basement restoration jobs. You’ll benefit from using our basement water damage services because the strategic restoration techniques that we use help us eliminate all water in basement seams that can lead to a mold infestation.
You’ll need to learn the common signs of a leak so that you can seek our services before mold impacts your basement. If the pipes in your basement are leaking quickly, there will be damp spots in certain areas on the floor. When a pipe leaks slowly, the signs won’t be dramatically noticeable on the floor because the foundation will dry rapidly. However, you can still detect this kind of leak on time and seek basement water removal services by examining the floorboard. If the leak is severe, the water will make the paneling buckle.
Mold Removal & Remediation
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 Damage Repair
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.
When sewage backs up, this is considered to be an emergency situation and should be dealt with immediately. Sewers back up for a variety of reasons like tree roots blocking them, water in the basement or blockage in the service pipe between the home and city main. Cleaning them out provides an entry into the home drain system so clogs can be removed or pipes inspected.
Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet Water Restoration
Safety is a top priority throughout drywall, ceiling, and flooring restoration jobs. We never delay during these projects because any lingering water can create an environment that attracts spores. Throughout drywall water damage projects, we grab every soggy particle to increase safety. We also thoroughly examine water damaged ceilings because mold usually grows in this area. Since mold and other elements that can contaminate a home can rest underneath carpeting and floorboards, we use special equipment during carpet water damage and water damage hardwood floor projects.

Reviews From Our Customers
David B: The technician and his crew were exactly what we needed after realizing the second floor windows were leaking into the first floor after a major storm. He is a pro and knew exactly how to solve the moisture problem before mold could take hold. He worked with our insurance and made the entire process as smooth as possible. He also took the time to patiently answer all of our questions and always made us feel like a priority.
Bibianne Y: My experience with all the employees, from first contact to the very last one, was friendly, meticulous, professional, thorough and respectful of a family’s needs and feelings in an unexpected and pricey basement water problem. They knew that we were overwhelmed at the scope of demolition work needed to prep for further foundation work and they patiently talked us through all the work they would do for us in the project in the basement.
Nanci M: We had a lot of damage during the 2015 ice dams. The technician really knows his stuff – and can really work with you and the insurance companies (which is always so difficult). He has a great bunch of guys and whenever any of them were at the house working, they did excellent work. It’s been a trying year to get all the repairs done and to get reimbursed by insurance. Thank goodness we had the whole team to work with and help us through the whole process.
Qi Y: My townhouse water meter was broken and 38 gallon water ran into my basement and my neighbors basement. Mold grew in next couple of days after removed damaged carpet from my basement and neighbors basement. The adjuster, went thru inspection with me for both basements and showed me all mold spots and told me how the mold remediation would be conducted. The work started the same day after I hired the company. Mold remediation job took two days and they took away all equipment right after the job done.
Dale B: Solved our problem immediately! When floods happen we all panic. I called as soon as I saw the wet carpet in my finished basement. Water was leaking from my a/c and I had a large area of carpet and padding that needed to be dried and changed before it got any worse. They removed the wet padding, then dried the carpet and replaced the padding. They even had to cut away the carpet from a doorway area and they re-laid the carpet perfectly as if nothing had ever happened. Friendly, efficient workers and great service.
Rob L: I have had many do work for me over the past 16 military years and three houses that I have owned, but this by far is the BEST COMPANY I have ever had do work for me. My AC unit flooded the garage, laundry room and my daughter’s bedroom. These guys were the most professional people I have ever seen. The work was of the highest quality and was done very quickly and professionally. They got rid of the water. They did drywall removal and installation. They also remove carpet and laid tile There was no headaches at all and the pricing was the best in the market.
