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 that you can do right now to protect yourself as well as your clothing, furniture, and belongings.

Frequently Asked Questions
Your water damage restoration cost is completely dependent on the severity of the damage. The final price tag will be determined by a variety of factors such as: cost of cleaning, the size of the damaged area, the type of water causing the damage, the cost of labor and restoration materials. The national average water damage restoration cost is $2,580. Of course, your restoration may cost as little as $1,000 or in excess of $8,000. To put these prices in perspective, drywall that was damaged with category 1 water could cost around $2,000 to repair. By contrast, a basement flooded with category 3 water, also known as black water, may cost $7,000 to repair. The only way to get an exact cost estimate is to reach out to a water damage restoration professional who will inspect the property. Visit our costs page for a more detailed explanation.

Do you suspect mold in your home? If you’ve recently experienced water damage or even minor flooding, you should be on the lookout for mold. Any situation that creates moisture, such as spills underneath the refrigerator, leaks under sinks, and damp basements will create the ideal environment for growth. Mold needs moisture and an organic substance called cellulose to grow. Cellulose can be found in almost any building material in your home, such as wood, carpeting, furniture, drywall and even your furniture. If you cannot see the mold, but you can smell an unpleasant, musty odor, it’s likely that there is mold hiding out of sight. Visit our common areas of mold growth page to learn where mold is most likely hiding in your home.
