Water Damage Mitigation & Restoration
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 Restoration and Basement Flooding Repair
Many homeowners have gone down the basement stairs after a heavy rain only to find several inches of water in their basement. Draining water in the surrounding soil can easily find its way through cracks in the basement walls. Insufficient drainage on the property or faulty sump pumps in combination with excessive rainfall can lead to unexpected basement water damage.
A flooded basement must be immediately pumped out. If the sump pump isn’t adequate, professional restoration teams can bring their own pumps. Nothing can be done until the water is removed. In the meantime, it’s important to stay out of the basement to avoid safety risks such as electric shock. Any chemicals or cleaners can also seep into the water to create health risks.
Any water damaged belongings, particularly appliances, should be removed before professional drying takes place. Water damage restoration can then begin with a thorough inspection to spot any growth of mold and mildew, trapped pockets of moisture, or damage to the walls or foundation which could undermine the strength of the upper floors.
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.
Fire Damage Repair
Because soot coatings and odors can dramatically impact residents in a home, we always provide prompt fire restoration services. We serve locals following events that involved:
- Cooking fires
- Heating fires
- Electrical fires
During all fire damage restoration projects, our technicians offer excellent customer service throughout the entire process. We usually begin by carefully mitigating the damages in the affect areas. Then, strategic steps are taken to secure the property so that emergency cleaning tasks can be done in an efficient manner.
Cleanup Sewage 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 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.

Reviews From Restoration 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.
