Water Damage Mitigation
The main risk of water damage is that the moisture can remain in spots you can’t see, such as within walls or floors. Water can weaken the structural integrity of wood-framed houses, destroy drywall, and lead to the growth of mold. While clothes and furniture may be saved with quick action and thorough drying, water damage cleanup is necessary for the home. Call us now at 1-888-443-3110.
It’s a good idea to take stock of your possessions for insurance reasons, but always use caution when returning to the home. Never enter a water-damaged home without ensuring that the power is turned off. Flooding may also release toxic chemicals, and after prolonged periods, the presence of algae and wildlife, including snakes. It’s always a good precaution to wear thick rubber boots, rubber gloves, goggles, and an air respirator if possible.
Water damage cleanup may involve removal of porous materials like wood, drywall, and carpets. The home will also have to be checked for mold and structural damage. Often the home will have to be dried with commercial drying fans and scrubbed with detergents before repairs can even begin.
Flooded Basement Services
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 remediation is a process used to remove and cleanup mold from an indoor environment. During the process, the mold restoration company will perform an assessment, contain the mold and provide air filtration. Finally, they remove the mold, clean the contents and restore everything to new.
It is important to perform mold removal as soon as possible after an incident because mold spores thrive on moisture. Allergens and irritants are a result and can cause serious health issues and even death. Mold in the basement is a serious matter that affects all members of the family.
Mold is caused by things like flooding, leaky pipes or roof, condensation and poor ventilation. 93 percent of chronic sinus infections are because of mold, and there has been a 300 percent increase in asthma in the past 20 years. This is why early mold cleanup is vital for you and your family.
Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration
The fire damage restoration process can begin as soon as authorities give the all-clear that the property is safe to return to. Heat, smoke and water damage are all a result. This damage can also lead to water damage due to the water used to put out the fire.
Fires can be caused by things like electrical issues, fireplaces, candles or smoking. A professional fire restoration team like ours would come in and assess the situation and begin restoring things back to the way they were. In 2015 alone, there were 365,500 fires with 2650 deaths and 11,075 injuries reported.
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 is very popular in the construction of both commercial and residential houses. Drywall has obviously many advantages of its rival building materials, but it’s an enemy of water. Contact with a lot of water causes the drywall to swell or host pathogens and molds. For this reason, whenever there is water damage, the drywall, ceiling, and carpet may need to be changed.
It is important to enlist the services of a reputable restoration company like us because drywall and ceiling contribute to the overall structural integrity of a water damaged house.

Robert P: My fiancé and I had overnight flooding from Andrea on June 7th to June 8th. Called in the middle of the night and they responded immediately. The job was done efficiently, effectively, and with the utmost courtesy. We hope to not have any more flooding, but if we do, Ace will be the first company we call!
Hotrod W: Great guys, great work. They even helped to make sure my insurance paid for everything they should have. This was my first water damage claim and even though the house was in chaos for a few days, everything got dried out and replaced… Even got new carpet for the downstairs. Very happy with the work they did.
Drew B: We have had many emergency floods at rentals properties we manage and they were just a phone call away and responded in more than a timely matter. Because the water extraction and flooring are right there together, we already had the flooring picked out and it was also installed immediately after the water was extracted.
Kim S: The technician explained all details of the job to me thoroughly. I annoyingly had a million questions and he answered them without the notion that my OCD was taking over the conversation. He and the team were nothing but great! Highly recommended and I’ll be referring them to anyone I know that needs services of this kind.
Tony D: I felt they really had my best interest at heart both with the water damage and the insurance claim. They went out of their way to make sure I understood the process and got everything from my insurance carrier. Hopefully I won’t have water damage again, but I would call these guys back right away, and would recommend them to everyone
Brian A: The technician re-constructed our water damaged house (an entire first floor) from buckled hardwood, spongey carpets and wet drywall back to where it was pre-damage. They are a company that dots their i’s and crosses their t’s, and stays on top of all the subspecialties required for these projects to be successful. Would highly recommend them!
