What to Expect When You Call a Water Removal Service

Flooding is the most common reason for insurance claims. Indoor flooding is not just caused by storms. Backed up sewer lines, faulty appliances and bursting pipes can also leave homeowners with inches of water inside their homes. When you are dealing with a significant amount of water in your home, you should not try to do the clean up yourself. Professional water removal services have the right equipment to do the job right and protect your home.

When you discover water in your home, it is important to call us right away. We are available day and night and typically show up within an hour and a half of your call and often sooner. Do not wait until morning. The longer an area is flooded, the more severe the complications.

If it is safe to do so, you should remove furniture and electronics from the area that is flooded. This can make it more likely that your things will get through without damage. Some items, depending on what they are made of and the nature of your flood, may not be salvageable. Particle board furniture often swells when exposed to water. Soft materials that are exposed to gray or black water may need to be discarded.

When we arrive, we will assess your water damage and let you know what needs to be done. This assessment comes at no cost and no obligation. We do not want people to avoid calling because they are afraid of what they might hear.

Once you’ve given us the go, we will begin water extraction and drying. We have specialized vacuum and drying equipment that can do a far more thorough job than an individual can do on their own. When necessary, we will use high powered equipment to dry all water that has gotten up under your cabinets or walls or that has seeped beneath the floors.

Without thorough drying, it is possible for water to stay hidden where you can’t see it or get to it. This excess moisture can cause serious problems over time. Mold spores are everywhere, and they are just waiting for conditions to grow. Moisture can also damage your drywall, which can result in expensive removal and replacement. By using professional drying services, you can assure that your home comes through good as new.

After drying, we will test to ensure that all water has been removed. This helps assure that they job is done right the first time and that you can rest assured that you will not suffer long term damage. We work with your insurance to make sure that all costs are covered.
