The absolute worst thing that you could do when it comes to water damage and restoration is to panic, and then not do anything. Time is always of the essence when it comes to water damage, and the sooner that you are able to act, the more of your home or business premises that you will be able to save from the water damage – and that will instantly save you money from the water damage restoration that you will have to pay at the end of the clean up process. So what do you really need to know in order to ensure that you can make the best decisions for your family and property, so you can make them quickly?
The first thing that you will need to do is to call us for a twenty four hour emergency water damage assessment. The assessment is often free, or if there is a necessary charge (for long distances at late hours for example), it will be subtracted from the cost of the job. The number to save is (619) 493-3349. After all, the last thing that you want is to know that you need to make that call within the next ten minutes, and spend eight minutes looking for the number! Having a company that you can rely on to pick up the phone twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, means that you can relax as soon as the dialling tone disappears; now you can start talking to a professional that already understand the situation much better.
During that phone call, you'll need to have certain pieces of information ready for us. That information will include your name, contact number, your insurance information, the address of the property that has been affected by water damage, exact details (as much as possible) of how and when the water damage occurred, and whether or not you still have electricity available. These will be questions asked, and it's always great to have as many of the answers to hand. Ready to call?

Once our Water Damage Repair Co technicians have arrived, they may not have time to explain the exact process that they are going to work through because they will be too busy trying to ensure that they can save as much of your home as possible! However, they will be following a very standard procedure, and nothing will happen without your first giving permission. The very first thing that they will do is attempt to discover the water source to the flooding and damage, and to stop the source. This will ensure that the damage that they immediately see will be the very worst – and it will only be getting better from then onwards. The next stage is to understand exactly what kind of water you have in the property: white, which is perfectly clean, gray, which will be slightly contaminated, or black which has been contaminated with sewage water.
Next will come the survey of damage. This is often the most troubling part of the restoration process, and you must not focus on the negative parts of this process. Yes, it could be quite upsetting to see that so many of your beautiful possessions and rooms of the home that you have built have been damaged – but this is the process that will enable you to work on re-building your home with the support and help of both your insurance company and the Water Damage Repair Co. team. This is a positive step towards putting your home back together again.
Water removal comes next, and is usually the more enjoyable experience, because you can start to see your home again! Water extraction may require a move out service if it is not safe for you to stay in the property, but most of the time it is possible to live around it. Pumps will remove the bulk of the water that may be settled in the property, and you will never believe just how much water can stay in a property out of sight! They will need to ensure that they have inspected soft furnishings such as carpets and curtains to ensure that absolutely all of the water has been removed.
Drying out your home is the next stage, and this can actually be the one that takes the longest! As well as drying out all of the property that you are able to see, you will also need to dry out the walls, ceilings, and floors, and this could take weeks, if not months, if the water damage is extensive. Even when you think that your property could not get any drier, the Water Damage Repair Co technicians will need to bring in special moisture monitors to ensure that you are not going to have problems with mold and damp later on. The last thing that you want is to go to all the trouble of decorating your property, just to find that you have got mold!
We Do Everything For YouAfter everything is dried, the Water Damage Repair Co will clean up everything, even the parts that look clean. This is particularly important if you have had gray or black water in the property, because everything will have to be sanitised to prevent infection. We will also remove any odors at this point. At this point the Water Damage Repair Co is ready to finish restoring your property (we can handle every part of the process for you including reconstruction - and even dealing with your insurance), whether that be your business or home, back to how it was. This is the most rewarding part of the journey, because you now get to decide whether you are going to return everything back to how it was, or try something out completely new!

Definitely a company to put on speed dial – they helped me out so much that I just don’t know how I can thank you enough!”
I really didn’t think that it was going to be possible for us to be back inside our home within a month, considering the sheer amount of damage that was caused by the broken pipe – but as soon as I called up, I was put at ease, and they were so quick and efficient that we were back into our home, restored and repaired, within a fortnight. I cannot thank you enough.
Nothing could have prepared me for the devastation when we returned home from our holidays to find that the sewers had flooded into our home, and nothing could have prepared me for the smell! I was convinced that most of the property would have to be gutted, but the experts at Water Damage Repair Co could see immediately would could be saved.
When we found mold in some of the walls in the autumn, I wanted to put off calling someone as soon as possible, because I dreaded hearing the price that it was going to be to fix it all. However, I was recommended you by a friend who told me that your prices were extremely reasonable, and you didn’t skimp on the quality at all. I hesitated, but gave you a call, and the man who came over to our home was nothing but professional and courteous. The estimate seemed too good to be true, but you were good to your word, and finished up the mold removal and repair within a single day. I will definitely be recommending you to my friends!
I work a busy job on shifts, and so when I found the water damage in the attic I was frantic because I didn’t know whether or not I would be able to be around for someone to come over and sort it out. I was put at ease by your great customer care staff, and I had several meetings with your professional until I felt comfortable – and I was never pushed. Leaving him to get to work while I went on shift was the best decision I ever made, because I came home with everything fixed
Great to work with such a professional and polite company, would definitely recommend to anyone who has water damage or mold problems in their home
