Water damage is frustrating. Let us get rid of the water and your stress. After an initial assessment and free estimate, our experienced water damage restoration crews use professional grade equipment to extract the water and dry out the entire area. We will remove the affected materials, prevent mold, deodorize, and restore your home or office to its original condition.
Our first step is to resolve the cause of the water. Whether it’s a leaky dishwasher, broken supply line, or sewage backup, the restoration process begins with fixing the problem. Without identifying and resolving the cause of the water damage, you will only have more problems in the future.
Once the cause of the water is fixed, we can remove standing water and sewage from the affected areas. For larger floods or sewage backups, we will pump out the affected area. For smaller jobs, we may use vacuums to suck up the water. Depending on the specific damage, water extraction may take place after removal and disposal.
We then inspect the damage and remove materials that cannot be restored. This may include materials like plaster, drywall, ceilings, carpeting, and carpet padding as well as personal items affected by the damage. Unfortunately, furniture, paper-products like books, magazines, and newspapers, and other porous items may need to be discarded.
After disposing of materials that cannot be restored, we use professional grade air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out areas and materials that can be salvaged. We closely monitor our equipment to ensure the fastest drying time possible and prevent further damage. Dry out may take several days depending on the extent of the damage.
Once the area is dry, we thoroughly sanitize and deodorize the area to prevent mold and smells from developing over time. In addition to structural materials like flooring, walls, and ceiling, we can also sanitize and deodorize affected furniture, fabric, and other materials that were salvageable.
The final step to water damage restoration is rebuilding and restoring the area to the original condition. This may include hanging new drywall, laying new carpeting, installing new cabinets, and refinishing hardwood floors. It may be necessary to replace damaged appliances or fix structural issues with your property as well.
The water responsible for causing water damage is broken into three categories based upon the health risks associated with that source.
Clean water does not pose a substantial threat to humans and pets. This includes leaky or broken supply lines and overflowing sinks and bathtubs.
Grey water contains chemical, biological, or physical contaminants that may cause discomfort or sickness in humans and pets. Examples include sump pump failures, overflowing washing machines, leaky or malfunctioning dishwashers, and toilet overflows containing only urine.
Black water is grossly unsanitary and contains harmful bacteria and fungi that may cause severe discomfort or sickness in humans and pets. Sewage backups, toilet overflows containing feces, and flood waters from lakes, seas, rivers, streams, or ground surface water are the most common examples. Grey water that is not promptly removed may become black water if allowed to remain stagnant within your home or property.
The classes of water damage are based on the probable rate of evaporation based on the materials affected. They are used to determine the actions required in cleanup and amount and type of equipment necessary to dry out the affected area.
Water damage only affects a portion of a room. The materials involved are predominantly non-porous and unlikely to absorb much moisture. Materials in this class include kitchen or bathroom tile, hard countertops, and other non-porous materials
Water damage affects a larger area. The materials involved are porous and absorbed some water. Water may have soaked into walls less than 24 inches high. Materials in this class include carpeting and carpet padding, drywall, wood, paneling, insulation, fabric, and other porous materials.
Water damage comes from overhead and spreads over a large area. The materials involved may be porous and nonporous that are affected by a significant volume of water. Materials in this class include ceilings, walls, insulation, carpeting, carpet padding, fabric, and other porous materials.
Water damage affects specific materials or in areas where drying and restoration may be difficult to accomplish. The materials involved may be porous and nonporous. Materials in the class include plaster, concrete, and hardwood floors. Also included are crawlspaces or other areas where a very low specific humidity is required for drying.
Cleaning residential or commercial water damage is a complicated process that involves having the right equipment. The longer the water sits, the more extensive the damage as well. A professional water damage company will quickly assess the situation, extract the water, and limit water damage.

From natural disasters to malfunctioning plumbing systems, water damage has many causes. No matter the cause, our local restoration professionals are here to clean up water damage of any size.
There are a number of effects due to water damage. From cosmetic and structural damage to mold growth and other damages, it’s important to know what to look for when you have water damage.
Water can stain and discolor ceilings, walls, carpeting, and floors, damage furniture and fabrics, weaken drywall and plaster, and tarnish metal surfaces after just a few hours of exposure.
Depending on the volume of water, it can severely weaken or permanently damage structural elements to your property. Drywall and plaster may disintegrate and crumble and wooden studs and subflooring can warp or split.
Grey and black water can lead to mold and bacteria growth. Persistently damp materials and even standing water from a clean source can also lead to mold problems if they remain unresolved. Standing sewage can lead to bacterial growth and pose future health risks.
Water and sewage can also lead to damage to appliances, including washing machines, dryers, hot water tanks, furnaces, dishwashers, and refrigerators, as well as electrical outlets and wiring.
Water can also damage or even destroy personal possessions like televisions, personal electronics, books, photographs, musical instruments, and many other items.
It’s difficult to predict the cost of water damage restoration without seeing the extent of the damage first hand. Common factors that impact restoration costs are the:
Your insurance policy may cover some or all of the cost for water damage cleanup and restoration. Call 1-404-916-4398 now for a free, no-obligation estimate on water damage restoration.
While water damage can affect any room, certain factors make specific rooms more prone to water damage.
Basements contain a number of plumbing systems and appliances that can cause water damage. Most water supply lines and drains route through the basement. Hot water tanks, laundry facilities, and HVAC systems are typically situated in the basements. Water can leak through windows and foundation walls and sewage can backup through floor drains.
Crawl spaces have many of the same possible causes of water damage as basements. Due to limited access and confined spaces, water damage cleanup poses an additional challenge.
Broken, leaky, or malfunctioning supply lines to sinks, dishwashers, ice makers, and water filters are the most common cause of water damage in the kitchen. Blocked, backed up, and overflowing sinks and leaky dishwashers are common causes of water damage in the kitchen.
Common causes of water damage in the bathroom are broken, leaky, or malfunctioning supply lines to sinks, toilets, and bathtubs. Drains running leading away from those bathroom fixtures are also prone to become blocked, backup, or overflow.
Laundry rooms can also cause significant water damage as well. Supply lines and drains from your washing machine can break or leak, plus your washing machine could malfunction and overflow.

Restoration Local helped me find a quality water restoration contractor fast. The contractor they connected me with was licensed & bonded, and held a A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. They were prompt and wasted no time getting our house (and life) back in order. My husband and I were so happy, we even recommended them to his parents.
My townhouse’s sump pump was broken and 38 gallons of water ran into my basement and my neighbor’s basement. Mold grew over the next couple of days after removing the damaged carpet from my basement. Restoration Local found a great local contractor who helped with the water cleanup and mold removal. Now I have a great man cave in my basement!
They’re very personable and know what they’re talking about. They’ll even work with your insurance and give up front pricing over the phone.
They exceed all expectations and go above and beyond to make sure customers are completely satisfied. This is the only choice you need to make for a construction company
Our roof was leaking, we called a technician and they sent someone before the rain stopped. The roof was patched and remained this way until we had the entire roof replaced.
The technician was very prompt, and I was very pleased with their workers. They were all very knowledgeable and great people to work with in every way. I am satisfied with their work and i would recommend them to anyone.
Fantastic experience… I was having sinus headaches and infections for the longest time. I was also starting to get vertigo and was convinced that it had to be related to maybe presence of mold in my house, maybe in the attic or the basement. The technician checked the entire house and told me there was no mold but (60percent) very high humidity levels . He installed an industrial size dehumidifier for 3 days and explained that it is essential to keep temperatures low during the summer in order to avoid the high humidity and eventual formation of mold. I then looked on the internet and found resent research linking high home humidity to respiratory illnesses such as sinus infections and vertigo.
Unfortunately a pipe was broken in one of the bathrooms and caused a disaster. The guys were very friendly, quick and neat to work, achieving a very good result. Thank you very much! I definitely recommend this company
The Technician was very professional, on time, polite, and they went above and beyond to make sure I was a satisfied customer. They provided me with a free estimate, and scheduled services for the very next day. Work was done in a very timely manner, very professionally, and they left everything very clean and organized. My home no longer smells like mold.
