Residential water damage occurs for any number of reasons –

  • Basement flooding – Blocked storm drains and heavy rains can lead to water in your basement. This type of flooding is especially dangerous as water can seep into and behind walls, and eventually cause damage to the structure of your home or lead to a mold infestation.
  • Burst frozen pipe – Frigid temperatures in winter can lead to water inside pipes freezing. This ice blockage can result in built-up water pressure down the line that eventually forces the pipe to burst.
  • Faulty appliances – Dishwashers, washing machines, and hot water heaters break down with age and use. They can cause a huge water mess without warning and, if not treated, can leak through cabinets, ceilings, and flooring.
  • Leaky pipes – Basement, kitchen, and bathroom pipes can crack and leak over time. Slow water drips seep into cabinets, floors, and ceilings. This pervasive spread of water causes structural damage and can lead to a serious health problem if mold and mildew take hold and grow.
  • High winds and hurricanes – Storms cause power outages, which means your basement sump pump stops working. Water that enters the pit can eventually overflow into the surrounding area, causing significant damage.
  • Sewer line backup – Given the health and sanitation issues involved, only professionals with the proper equipment and products should clean these types of unsanitary conditions.
  • Water from putting out a fire – Emergency responders and home sprinkler systems leave water everywhere. Because water combines with residue from smoke and damaged contents, this type of cleanup is better left to professionals.

The water restoration process includes a full range of residential and commercial water-damage cleanup and restoration services. And, because we are certified, licensed, bonded, and insured, you can trust us to handle your job professionally and reliably, from start to finish.

Step 1 – For our initial assessment, we:

  • Take all precautions, such as shutting down electricity, because customer and employee safety is top priority
  • Locate the source of the leak or water entry, and take interim steps to prevent further flooding
  • Inspect the water-damaged area, and classify the damage accordingly
  • Categorize the type of water based on the level of contamination and bio concerns present
  • Develop a proper, efficient cleanup method based on findings

Step 2 – To support the insurance claims process:

  • We take photos of the water-damaged area, furnishings, home contents, etc., both before and after water extraction
  • Using Xactimate®, we develop a fair quote based on national averages
  • To substantiate your claim, we document the damage and detail our processes
  • Our DASH system stores our notes and photos online, and allows both you and your insurance provider full, anytime access to your claim information

Step 3 – Water removal and drying:

  • Our professional-grade water extractors and submersible pumps work hard to extract every bit of water from your home
  • Truck-mounted equipment means we remove the water completely off your premises
  • Specialized drying equipment—heavy-duty air movers, fans, drying panels—dry the water-damaged area efficiently
  • We use specialized moisture-detection equipment, including infrared cameras and hygrometers, to check for residual moisture and dampness behind walls, under subfloors, in attics and elsewhere where mold can grow

Step 4 – Cleanup and restoration of your home to its pre-damage condition includes:

  • Removal and disposal of debris and structural items that cannot be salvaged
  • Cleaning, sanitizing, and restoring furnishings and belongings to the best of our ability
  • HVAC cleaning and HEPA vacuuming to reduce airborne contaminants
  • A follow-up visit to check for remaining dampness and moisture, and retreatment as necessary
