There are many sources of water damage in a home and three categories of damage. While water damage cleanup must happen as soon as possible regardless of the source, some types of damage are more serious and pose a higher health risk. We offer emergency water removal and water damage restoration for all three categories of damage:
- Category 1/Clean: This involves water from a sanitary, clean source like a faucet or toilet tank. If not addressed quickly, it will degrade to category 2.
- Category 2/Grey: This is water that comes from a somewhat contaminated source such as a dishwasher, washing machine, sink drain, or toilet overflow with urine. Grey water may have contaminants that can cause health issues.
- Category 3/Black: This is the most dangerous type of water damage and it may be caused by a sewer backup, stream or river flooding, toilet overflow with feces, or stagnant water that supports bacterial and viral growth.
Our water damage restoration services begin with fast response to assess the problem. All water will be removed from the area before it’s dehumidified to remove moisture and eliminate the possibility of mold and bacterial growth. Next, your home will be cleaned, sanitized, and treated with antifungal and antimicrobial products.
If you have suffered a flood or some type of water damage, fast water mitigation is essential. Contact us today for emergency water damage response to restore your home and help you move on.
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 Removal & Remediation
Mold removal and remediation are all about identifying and taking appropriate action to keep mold away from your buildings. The process of mold remediation involves preventing its spread in affected areas by removing the visible mold. We also boost this process by eliminating any moisture sources around the walls of houses. Mold in a basement is common because these places are usually wet.
Mold is known to have among other effects, irritants that can pose a health hazard around homes. It is important to contact a mold restoration company like us right away to aid in a mold clean-up exercise, especially if you own large buildings.
The mold remediation process is very important since it requires a reconstruction of the affected areas. The remediation process involves:
- Assessment of the mold situation – Here the cause of the problem is established.
- Containment – This is the immediate process after the affected areas are identified. The affected area is cordoned off to avoid having them spread to other areas.
- Filtration – The air of the mold spores will be cleaned carefully because mold is not safe for health.
- Removal and Drying- After the previous processes, the mold is removed from the affected areas carefully. The areas that have been cleaned must be equally dried since any more moisture is a breeding ground for more mold.
- Repair – The affected areas are supposed to be repaired after the mold materials are removed.
The health risks of dealing with mold must be observed since it has irritating effects. A good number of types of molds are known to create health problems.
Fire Damage Repair
Restoration after a fire can begin when your fire department tells you it’s safe to return. The first thing you should do is open windows and possibly turn on a fan to clear away any lingering smoke. Smoke is acidic as well as carcinogenic, and can also damage and stain surfaces. It can also contain harmful fumes from other substances destroyed by fire. At times smoke, and the water used to extinguish the fire, can do more damage than the actual flames. Proper fire damage restoration involves treatment for all three.
Don’t eat food that’s been exposed to heavy smoke. You may want to unplug appliances, remove valuables, and leave the home if smoke damage is extensive. Take stock of your belongings and take photos of the damages as soon as it’s safe. Unless the damage is slight, leave the cleanup to trained fire cleanup specialists. Rebuilding isn’t possible until proper restoration is done.
Sewage Cleanup & Restoration
When sewage water and debris backs up into your home, our sewage cleanup services can be very beneficial. Our crews tackle sewage-related projects by carefully removing all sewage and water from the premises. Then, we lift and haul away any flooring pieces, carpets, or furnishings that are contaminated.
Drywall, Ceiling and Carpet Water Restoration
When drywall gets wet, it quickly absorbs water, loses its strength, and falls apart. It’s essential to repair damaged drywall, ceilings, and carpet as soon as possible as all three can pose a health hazard by becoming a breeding ground for mold within just two days. Wet drywall can even be a safety hazard as it is at high risk of collapsing or falling apart.
Our professionals will respond quickly to restore water damage. With drywall, this usually involves removing and replacing damaged sections. Sometimes hardwood floors and even carpet may be saved, but it depends on the severity of the water damage and how fast it is treated. Contact us today for fast, superior water damage mitigation to your drywall, ceilings, and flooring.

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!
