Water Damage Restoration Services
Unlike the immediate visibility of damage caused by fire, the effects of water damage might not be readily apparent. However, the longer you delay addressing it, the more extensive and harmful the consequences can become. Timely action is crucial, as water damage restoration should ideally commence within 48 to 72 hours of the initial incident.
Microbial growth and mildew have the potential to develop in hidden corners, such as within wall cavities. Our team employs cutting-edge equipment to assess the extent of damage, including the hidden impacts that could lead to the growth of harmful microorganisms. We are dedicated to safeguarding your property from these unseen threats.

Scroll down for some tips on what to do when you find water damage.
Top Tips When You Find Water Damage:
- Avoid areas where electricity may come into contact with water in your home.
- Water can weaken structures. Always watch for potential falling objects such as your ceiling or shelving units while surveying your home or business.
This would also be something to mention to your restoration company, as they have the equipment to remove any dangerous items.
- Completely avoid areas with raw sewage. It goes without saying that raw sewage can be harmful to your health. Bacteria, parasites, viruses, and other microorganisms are found within raw sewage.
- Before contacting your insurance company, and if the conditions are stable, locate the cause of the water damage. If the reason for the damage is not a natural occurrence, such as flooding after or during heavy rain, find the source and attempt to stop it by shutting off the water source.
Make sure steps are taken to prevent your water lines from freezing.
- Once the source of the water is located and the water has ceased, move your valuable items to a secure, dry place. Remember to create an inventory list, especially if items are severely damaged.
Your insurance company will find it helpful if you still have receipts for any expensive items.
- If the source of water is in any way threatening to your electrical appliances, be sure to either remove them (conditions permitting) or shut off your power.
If your power must be shut off, remember to remove perishable food items from your refrigerator or freezer while making a list of each item.
- Making sure your appliances are in working order is a good way to prevent water damage.
Your washing machine, refrigerator, freezer, water heater, and dishwashing machine are the higher-risk appliances for causing water damage.
Make sure you check appliances regularly, and if an appliance does have any corrosion or leaking, make sure you call the proper service company immediately.
- Your home’s building structure is an essential part of your house, so make sure your gutters are cleaned at least once a year and have someone inspect your roof for damage.
Specific items on your roof should also be inspected, including your chimney or venting areas.
The kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, or anywhere in your home where you may have a sink or access to water should be inspected regularly for signs of leaking, which may lead to larger problems.
