Damage Inspection and Assessment

Our team of professionals will thoroughly inspect and test every part of your home or business. We will document damage which will serve to support your insurance claim. This assessment is crucial and will help us to develop a plan of action.


Water Removal – Water Extraction

Using commercial-grade water extraction equipment we will remove standing water as well as water that may have seeped deep beneath floorboards, into walls, and other surfaces.

Remove Unsalvageable Items and Items that Require Cleaning

Water damage also affects your belongings. Before we start any restoration processes, we need to remove debri and items that are damaged beyond repair. We will also remove salvageable items such as furniture, clothing, carpets, etc. and bring them back to our climate-controlled warehouse for sorting, labeling, cleaning, drying and sanitization.

Drying and Dehumidifying

Once most of the water is removed, we will go a step further and use scientific drying methods to draw out any moisture left over in the structure and air of your home.

Deep Cleaning and Sanitization

Cleaning and sanitizing the site involves the use of environmentally friendly methods for removing residues, applying disinfectants and antimicrobials to prevent mold and mildew, and HVAC cleaning to ensure clean air.



With a clean slate, we are able to clearly see what is damaged and begin repairs necessary to bring your home back to its pre-disaster state as soon as possible. Our team will inform you of planned repairs and give you a timeline of when to expect your home back. After repairs are carried out, your belongings will be retrieved from our climate-controlled warehouse and returned to you.

There aren’t enough words to express my gratitude and appreciation to these guys. When my home was in complete disarray at 1 am, they came to my aid, and haven’t left since. The team is very professional and dedicated to getting the job done! These guys have checked in on me and done everything they can to make my home as comfortable as possible. They also went above and beyond and cleaned out my two neighbors’ homes that were flooded that same night. They worked from 7 am to 7 pm on a Sunday to make sure our homes were liveable. They did these tasks without even knowing if they would be compensated due to my insurance issues.. totally out of the goodness of their heart!

Will Water Damage Repairs Be Covered by My Insurance?

If you have home insurance that covers severe weather, plumbing accidents, or basement floods, you may be able to have most of the damage covered. By contacting your insurance agent, or having our professional services do so on your behalf, you’ll be able to discover if you have suitable coverage for all your restoration needs.

However, the process can be complicated and you will need to provide clear evidence in order to get your claim approved. Our team has experience working with insurance companies and can walk you through each step of the process. We are able to provide exactly the evidence you need to get your claim approved and will assist you throughout the claims process.

Our team can also install prevention measures for early detection of floods. This could include sump pumps, water backup valves, water leak detectors and automatic water shut-off valves. By installing prevention devices, you may even get discounts on your insurance policy in the future.

How Much Does Water Damage Restoration Cost?

In the event that your situation is not covered by insurance, the price will depend on the severity of the damage. Some of the most common contributing factors include:

  • ZThe size of the affected area – depending on the square footage, prices can range from $4 to $10 per square foot
  • ZThe types of materials that need restoration – hardwood flooring may have different material cost than carpet
  • ZThe type of water damage – clean rainwater is easier to remediate compared to black sewer water
  • Zthe extent of the damage – large floods are more difficult to dry than a burst pipe
  • ZMold growth and mildew – if not remediated correctly, mold can spread and cause significant damage after the water has been removed
  • ZReplacement of objects – furniture, artifacts or family heirlooms can be priceless if they suffer significant damage

Restoration Process

During the restoration process, we carefully take out all of the salvageable items and move them elsewhere. That way, you minimize any loss you may have of personal items. Any items that are damaged beyond being salvageable, we make sure to dispose of for you. You have enough going on so we do that to help hasten the process

Next, we use our industrial-grade pumps, air movers, dehumidifiers, and other tools to get the water out and dry up the space as quickly as possible. This helps to slow mold growth so that we can ensure your space will still be healthy to live in once the water remediation process is complete. We then use all eco-friendly agents to both neutralize and prevent new microbial growth within your space. This stops mold and mildew from growing. All of our team members are licensed (MSBOC), insured, and certified (IICRC), so you can be sure that your cleanup and restoration will be done right. During category three water damage we use air scrubbers with HEPA filters on them to remove any lingering contaminants from the air.
