Flood and Water Damage Restoration


If you’ve been a victim of flood and water damage from a powerful storm, tornado, or hurricane, hiring a professional to help restore your property is essential. At T. Ryals Emergency Restoration, we’ll help determine the extent of your flood and water damage, help you rebuild within your budget, and ensure that you and your family can return to a solid, dry and safe home.


What are Some Examples of Flood and Water Damage?


While there are a number of ways that water can enter your home, water damage can be devastating to the interior, exterior and structural integrity of your house. Some of the most common factors include:


  • Severe weather, powerful storms, tornadoes, and hurricanes

  • Faulty plumbing, water heaters and appliances

  • Overflowing toilets, bathtubs and sinks

  • Accidents involving sewer or water backups

  • Rainwater infiltration through openings, windows, and doors


In central and southern Mississippi, water and flood damage is commonplace for many homeowners. In order to prevent water from entering your home, consider renovating and restoring elements by choosing a professional contractor with experience in dealing with flood damage.


How Does Water Damage Affect Your Home?


When floodwater sits or rushes into homes, it can cause structural damage to beams, walls, furniture and flooring. If floodwater rushes fast enough or sits for a very long period, there could be resulting damage to the foundation of the home.


Flood damage can cause several safety risks if the water isn’t cleaned up immediately, including:


  • Power outages and electrical damage

  • Contaminated drinking water, sanitary hazards and diseases caused by standing water

  • Clogged drainage and sewage systems

  • Communications such as telephone wiring or internet cabling

  • Shifting foundations or landslides

Homeowners that experience flood damage often have difficulty coping with their situation, and exhibit common symptoms of anxiety, depression, fear, anger, frustration, and grief. Professional restoration services can help ease the burden by helping families rebuild their homes faster, more efficiently, and within budget.

Benefits of Professional Flood Water and Damage Restoration


Flood cleanup is more than just mopping up the water and using fans to dry it out. The water can seep into the walls, under cabinets, and in other locations where you may not find it. This leads to mold growth and can affect the health of you and your family.


When hiring professionals to handle your flood damage restoration, they will be able to:


  • Identify areas of damage quickly and efficiently

  • Safely treat hazardous areas such as sewage water and toilet backflow

  • Carefully transport personal possessions

  • Use enhanced drying equipment and techniques

  • Clean areas to avoid potential mold growth

  • Providing services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

  • Take extra safety precautions to ensure your property is treated with care, respect and consideration


If you attempt to perform a water damage cleanup project on your own, you could do further damage to your property. The extra time that the water is present could also be a major factor in the overall cost and subsequent financial burden as well. By hiring professionals, you’ll save time and money, and protect the health and safety of your family, pets, and community.

How Much Does Water Damage Restoration Cost?


Considering that experienced professionals can handle all of your water damage restoration needs, the cost of repairing your home after flood or water damage is very reasonable. While the price will depend on the severity of the damage, some of the most common contributing factors include:


  • The size of the affected area – depending on the square footage, prices can range from $4 to $10 per square foot

  • The types of materials that need restoration – hardwood flooring may have different material cost than carpet

  • The type of water damage – clean rainwater is easier to remediate compared to black sewer water

  • The extent of the damage – large floods are more difficult to dry than a burst pipe

  • Mold growth and mildew – if not remediated correctly, mold can spread and cause significant damage after the water has been removed

  • Replacement of objects –furniture, artifacts or family heirlooms can be priceless if they suffer significant damage


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.


Professional service providers 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.
