24/7 EMERGENCY RESPONSE
TRUSTED A+ BBB RATING
According to San Diego’s 10 news:
“As long as there has been a Mission Valley, it has always been prone to flooding.” Some San Diego flooding reports even date back as early as 1916. They describe the areas as “a natural flood plain.” Heavy rains can cause widespread flooding.
The North County Times reports that San Diego water damage is becoming the leading driver of home insurance rates in a February 23, 2012 article. “Damage to homes and businesses after severe storms has become an international issue,” says Don Forgeron, President and CEO of the Insurance Bureau of Canada.
The Sacramento Bee reported that a water damaged Middle School has closed its doors after the 2010 school year. Officials estimate the damages will cost over $7 million to repair the campus.

GUIDELINES WHAT TO DO ON THE EVENT OF WATER DAMAGE
Water damage can spread to previously unaffected areas
Moisture sensitive surfaces like wood floors and cabinets can swell and disfigure
Furniture stains can appear on carpet and rugs
Drapes and other fabrics can be permanently discolored
Baseboards and drywall can begin warping
Odor problems begin to develop
Wood furniture can be permanently damaged
Pre-existing moisture problems are reactivated
Mold and mildew growth takes place
Odors permeate into the structure
Wood floors can be destroyed
Allergies can become aggravated
Structural integrity can be compromised
Serious health hazards to occupants can begin to develop
The source and type of water that has affected the structure is also important in determining restoration procedures. Fresh water from a broken copper supply pipe is far different than water from a drain or sewer. Water from an aquarium is different than water from a sink or tub overflow. Water classification determines the restoration process and “salvage ability” of many building materials. Our trained professionals identify and determine the class of water and treat the project accordingly.
Property owners should be consulted every step of the process and feel completely comfortable with the restoration plan. Trained technicians use high-powered extraction equipment to remove standing water from carpets and floors. Furniture and other personal contents may be carefully removed from affected areas to be protected against damage. Carpet and floor coverings may be removed to properly “dry down” the structure. Baseboards, moldings, drywall and other materials may be removed to achieve proper restoration of the property. Typically, high velocity air movers and dehumidifiers are used to dry the structure.
In all cases, the property owners are aware of the water damage restoration plan and understand the actions being taken to restore damage to the building.
COMPLETE RECONSTRUCTION SERVICES Why is it important to hire a company that provides reconstruction services?There are many reasons to hire a full service licensed general contractor for San Diego water damage restoration projects: Water Damage Service IS NOT Contractor A companies offering water damage services are not contractors at all. They are often carpet cleaning companies that offer flood services. In addition to cleaning carpet and furniture, they offer “dry out” services. Concern about rebuild your property? Many companies that do not offer reconstruction services are not concerned about rebuilding the property. They are not careful to evaluate the building materials because it is not their job to replace them. Certain materials are very difficult or impossible to replace, and need to be restored and salvaged. Discarding such irreplaceable materials during the emergency service is devastating to reconstruction companies and homeowners. These critical mistakes made by “dry out” companies can literally cost homeowners tens of thousands of dollars in reconstruction cost. It happens all the time. Wrong Company = Wrong outcome… This is maybe most importantly, building codes are often violated by so called dry out companies that are not licensed contractors. Fireproofing, sprinkler and other safety systems can easily be compromised by non-qualified individuals working on your home or business.
