How fast can you get here?
Our team is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergency service. We can likely be at your home or commercial space within hours.
How long will it take to get things back to normal?
This depends on how extensive the water damage is and how much building and reconstruction is required. Extracting water, drying, and rebuilding damaged areas usually takes between two weeks and a month.
Will I have to leave my house or building?
This depends on the extent of the water damage. If the property damage does not require extensive reconstruction, you may be able to stay in your home or building throughout the process. Keep in mind, however, that much of the equipment we use can be noisy.
Some insurance companies offer reimbursement for alternative living arrangements and business continuity expenses, so it is a good idea to check with your insurance provider about coverage.
How much is this going to cost?
This depends on the size of the flooded area and the amount of restoration work required. Your insurance policy may cover water damage, in which case you are typically only responsible for the deductible. Whether or not you are covered usually depends on your provider and the source of the damage.
Can I use my insurance?
We encourage all homeowners to reach out to their insurance company for coverage.
Will I lose my possessions?
We have extensive experience helping customers recover their water damaged items.
