A flooded basement is often caused by insufficient drainage around the walls, a failed sump pump, heavy rain, or a combination of these issues when water follows the path of least resistance through the basement walls.

We will respond quickly to remove the water and dehumidify your basement to remove moisture and dry out the space. Once all water and moisture are removed, flood damage cleanup will involve cleaning, sanitizing, and treating the basement with an antimicrobial and antifungal product to prevent mold.

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 and smoke damage can be devastating, not only in terms of the actual fire but also the smoke and the water damage after firefighting efforts are complete. The odor of smoke can permeate belongings and building materials while oily soot can easily stain textiles. As with water damage, prompt action is necessary for effective fire damage restoration.
The residue remaining after a fire is a biohazard and may cause serious health problems if it is not cleaned professionally and effectively. In just hours, smoke and soot can discolor appliances, cause etching on glass, and tarnish metal. If they are left to sit for even a few days, smoke and ash can continue to cause corrosion and damage.
We are ready 24/7 to respond with superior fire, soot, and smoke damage restoration that involves cleaning debris and residue before it can spread, neutralizing odors, and using commercial-grade chemicals that break up the molecules in smoke to permanently remove the odors in your home. To protect against further damage and secure your home, any missing or damaged walls, windows, and roofs will be tarped and boarded during this process. Fire and soot damage also frequently involves water removal and drying immediately afterward.
If your home has suffered fire damage, contact us right away for fast response and superior results to restore your home and help you move on with your life.
Cleanup Sewage and Restoration
Sewage leaks cause a great deal of discomfort to residents due to the stench and the potentially harmful aspects of a sewer line. Sewage leaks are easily identified due to their unforgiving smell. They usually happen after natural catastrophes, but sometimes, they are just as a result of poor plumbing or wear and tear of sewerage systems.
Sewage cleanup is important and should be done as fast as possible due to the likely contamination of the environment which eventually may cause infections and diseases such as cholera. Although some sewage leakages such as kitchen water may not be very harmful to the human, It is advised that it should be treated as an emergency as the spread may cause contamination of sources of drinking water.
The black water sewage leak is the most harmful as it can cause death. Blackwater sewage leak contains human waste which contains a lot of toxic matter and hence should be prioritized over the rest. Humans and animals should avoid any contact with leaking sewages. A restoration company like us cleans the mess and also treats the environment around the leak to make sure that all the toxins in the surrounding area have been fully removed.

Customer Restoration Reviews
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.
