Water Damage Restoration
The rainy season is known for bringing life into our surroundings. In some parts of the country, however, the rain is known for bringing havoc and damage. This is the set of the package that Mother Nature has to offer to us. People living in flood-prone areas know all too well the effects of flooding.
Whenever there is flooding or excess rainfall, water may get to your house denying you and your beloved ones a chance to enjoy the comfort of your home. Flood water is known for damaging anything that gets in its way. Floods are brought about by excess rainfall in areas with inadequate drainage systems. Sometimes floods are adamant and exceed the flooding barriers that people or authorities put to prevent damage.
Rainfall is not the only known cause of water damage. Sometimes heavy leaking pipes may cause water damage to a house. This is especially worse if the leakage is big. It is important to get water damage cleanup services as soon possible to prevent further damage. Restoration Local provides water damage restoration services, and we advise homeowners to call us at 1-888-443-3110 for our emergency water removal services. This is to ensure that minimal damage to the property is done and other water-related hazards are avoided.
Flooded Basement Restoration
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 spread throughout any home in as little as 48 hours whenever a water source, such as a plumbing or roof leak, is introduced. Mold is a serious issue and can damage your health. Unfortunately, microscopic mold spores are just about everywhere, making it next to impossible to remove every single spore from your home. However, when properly treated by a professional mold removal and remediation company, you can once again begin enjoying the air quality you deserve.
Mold remediation involves identifying and addressing mold problems in a home, business, or any other structure. Almost always performed by a professional mold restoration company like us, specializing in the potentially harmful job of mold cleanup and removal, mold remediation involves a number of essential steps.
A licensed contractor will first identify the source of the problem and all moldy areas. Then, a remediation plan will be developed, with containment of the infected area being a top priority. HEPA filters are used to remove harmful mold spores from the air and any porous materials like damaged sheetrock are removed. The rest of the area is thoroughly dried before the reconstruction process can begin. Exposure to mold can cause serious health issues. Whether you have mold in basement from a flood, mold in the attic from a leaky roof, or anywhere else in your home, protect your health and call a mold removal specialist today.
Fire accidents are among the causes of big losses that befall homes and other residences. The aftermath of a fire accident leaves your interior space damaged from smoke and ash and flooded with water used to put out the fire. As a result, you need to clear the smoke odor from your living space, clean the soot-stained walls, ceiling, and floor, and restore your home to its normal condition.
Elements like ash and smoke cause rapid corrosion of your interior’s finishing and other valuables inside your house. In this case, you need to hire a fire damage restoration service provider like us to help you prevent more damage to your property.
Reputable fire restoration service providers like us will offer emergency corrosion mitigation to prevent smoke residues from corroding and discoloring your valuables, remediating water damage, deodorizing surfaces, and providing additional services aimed to restore your normal life.
Sewage Cleanup & Restoration
A sewage spill in your home caused by a backed-up septic tank, overflowed toilet, or sewer backup creates a dangerous and hazardous environment. A sewer backup should always be considered an emergency as the water likely contains bacteria, viruses, and microbes that may lead to serious illness. Always leave sewage cleanup to a professional to safely clean contaminants and protect your family.
Sewer water is classified as category 3 or “”black water,”” the most hazardous of all types of water damage. While even clean water can degrade into “”gray”” or “”black”” water if allowed to sit untreated, black water is considered extremely contaminated and it also includes flooding from streams and rivers or standing water that supports microbial growth.
We offer 24-hour emergency sewer cleanup services to quickly restore safety and health to your home. If your have suffered storm damage or a sewer backup, contact us right away for prompt, superior service.
Drywall, Ceiling, and Floor Water Damage Restoration
Drywall, ceiling and carpet water restoration can be needed for a variety of reasons such as a flood, a fire or a major storm. Causes of damage like floor water damage or ceiling and drywall water damage are also due to things like leaking from broken pipes. Almost 40 percent of Americans have experienced loss from water damage, and water damage is the second most frequently filed claim in the United States.
A restoration company like us will come and assess the damage to your property then begin the process of cleaning and repairing the damage. Sometimes there may be extra measures included like hazard containment and ventilation. Moisture, of course, needs to be taken care of right away to avoid health issues with things like mold.

Adwin A: A piped burst at my mother’s house and when the fire trucks got there her house had plenty of water that had soaked her carpets and ran down through the ceiling to the basement. Her home was a wreck. I called and without 2 hours they were on the scene. They assessed the situation and began soaking up the water. They brought in fans, heaters, and everything to dry up the carpet, ceiling and floors. They left equipment to complete the drying process so there would not be any mold. They did an awesome job and I hope I never need them again, but for sure they are the ones I would call. Will recommend to all my family and friends.
Joanne D: Our house got flooded and as soon as my husband gave them a call, they were quick to have people over and start drying up our house before we got any damages. Their employees had great people skills and ensured us everything will be taken care of and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The guy that installed our ceramic floors after they did a great job drying up our house and cleaning everything up, did a fantastic job and our floors are gorgeous! I loved the fantastic customer service they have provided from the beginning to the end, and then some! we are definitely going to grow through them again with anything we need done with our house.
Luisa D: Fantastic experience… I was having sinus headaches and infections for the longest time. I was also starting to get vertigo and was convinced that it had to be related to maybe presence of mold in my house, maybe in the attic or the basement. The technician checked the entire house and told me there was no mold but (60percent) very high humidity levels . He installed an industrial size dehumidifier for 3 days and explained that it is essential to keep temperatures low during the summer in order to avoid the high humidity and eventual formation of mold. I then looked on the internet and found resent research linking high home humidity to respiratory illnesses such as sinus infections and vertigo.
Jessica S: I had a water loss to my home back in October 2015. My Master bathroom, master bedroom, and walk-in closet were affected. It was a total disaster! I was so worried about which company to go with to help get my house and family back to normal! This was our first experience with any type of significant damage to our home. I could not believe how quick, they all were to respond to our families misfortune. They graciously worked around our busy schedule, and were very knowledgeable of the work they performed. I have never been so satisfied with a business!!! They did a FANTASTIC JOB restoring my house back to normal! It is better now than it was before the water loss. I LOVE MY NEW FLOORS!!!!!!! Truly God Sent!!!
Anna J: Fast, reliable, friendly, and hardworking! The flooding started at 7pm on a Saturday and they were there within the hour. On top of all the fans and dehumidifiers they brought a back up sump pump to help keep our floors dry. They checked in daily and rolled out the “”paper”” carpet when they were working on the floors to keep things clean. I have a child and dog and they were extremely careful with their restoration process (ex. blocking off the area with plastic walls). They took charge in dealing with the insurance company via phone and in person when they came to estimate the damage. They also called and prepped the flooring company before we arrived to shop. Overall a great experience that I hope we don’t have to deal with again 😉
Eddie T: In April 2015 we had a leak in a bulkhead from the roof into our 16th floor condominium unit. The roof was not maintained properly and deteriorated to the point where the upper membrane cracked leaving massive areas of the insulation soaked with water. Despite it being their responsibility, the condominium association refused to act quickly to repair and stop the water leaks. From April through August the water dripped. On several occasions, the association tried to open the bulkhead without taking proper steps to provide for mold controls and containment . We called this technician who immediately stepped in, notified the association if proper procedures of the requirements for mold containment protocol, and despite the association refusing to pay, he both saved us from having our entire home contaminated and did an excellent job of containing, removing and treating the mold. I highly recommend him
