Flood Damage Restoration
Whether you’ve come home to water pouring down from a pipe in your ceiling or discovered flooding in your basement, water damage is scary for any homeowner. When it comes to water damage, it’s important to act quickly to protect your belongings, the structure of your home, and most importantly, your family. We’ve been in the business of water damage restoration for over 12 years and we are fully licensed, certified, and bonded. At Bright Restoration, no damage is too severe for us to take on. We’ve seen it all before, and we’ll be able to help you restore your home quickly and responsibly.
Is it water damage or flood damage?
Most homeowners’ insurance policies don’t cover flood damage. Flood damage is generally covered by a separate policy or rider, if at all. There are some companies in California that exclusively provide flood insurance. To determine whether you need water damage or flood damage restoration, you must ask where the water came from. If the water came from inside the house or entered as a result of structural failure such as a roof leak, you have water damage. If the water entered from outside of your home, you may have flood damage. Your insurance agent should work to explain the differences between water damage and flood damage so that your claim is correctly filed.
Your safety is our #1 priority!
Your safety is our top priority at every stage in the restoration process. Before you do anything else, the first step is to determine if it’s safe for you to remain in your home. Water damage increases your risk of being hurt in a fall or an electrical accident. If you see or suspect that the flooding has reached your electrical outlets, don’t enter the room of the water event. Keep a safe distance at all times from any pools of water unless you can verify that the water is not in contact with anything electrical. If you can reach your fuse box, turn off electricity at the main circuit breaker.
Additionally, if you can unplug appliances without coming in contact with the flooding, it can prevent further damage. Once you know that you’re safe, give us a call. A quick emergency response from water damage professionals can reduce the damage, stop the water from spreading, and ultimately decrease the cost of restoration. If you've come to the conclusion that it is safe to remain in your home, here are some emergency tips to help you protect yourself as well as your clothing, furniture, and belongings.
If you’ve experienced flooding because of a natural disaster, don’t wait to reach out to a flood damage restoration company. Flood water can be hazardous and can cause secondary mold damage if allowed to remain in your home. Flood water also carries bacteria and insects, in addition to elevating the humidity levels in your home. Flood damage restoration is an emergency response service, so we dispatch qualified restoration professionals immediately after we receive your call. The flood damage restoration process is different from water damage restoration, so we use our knowledge and experience to restore your home and keep your family safe.
Flood damage can be quite an unsettling experience for you and your family, which is why we are committed to honest communication and transparency. Your comfort and sense of security is important to us, which is why we’ve provided a very detailed step-by-step guide to what you can expect when you contact us.
After you've experienced flooding, you are at risk for long-term moisture problems that can lead to mold growth. Mold grows very quickly, sometimes in as little as 24 hours when it has sufficient moisture. If you think you may have mold growth, we recommend that you read more about mold remediation today.
We at Bright Restoration understand that disasters occur without warning, causing distress and panic regarding your home, belongings, and situation.
