Water Damage Restoration in Orange County
All insurance companies make a significant distinction between flood damage originating on the property and that from rising water. The latter requires special coverage everywhere, not just in hurricane country. It doesn't matter if it's a roof leak, a plumbing problem or a natural disaster — any source quickly soaks in leading to dampness that can linger for several weeks even during Orange County summers. All that time (and starting within just a day or so) water damage progresses, leading to buckling hardwood floors, warped and split wood framing, and destroyed drywall. Our flood services minimize all that with advanced equipment and industry best practices to create a controlled drying environment. We'll dry and humidify to remove even moisture deep within the structure itself in just a few days.
In addition to homes and multi-family housing, our team is experienced in commercial water damage restoration. We understand the special conditions and priorities of meeting OSHA workplace health and safety requirements, rescuing and tracking inventory, and preparing for any re-inspections to minimize the disruption and get you back in full operation as soon as possible.

Flood Damage Removal
Following ANSI/IICRC S500 standards and guidelines, any event that soaks one or more rooms requires aggressive water damage dry-out to prevent secondary damage. For major incidents, our flood damage service begins with bulk water removal through fast pump-outs, assisted drainage, or just plain old mopping up. But taking care of flood damage requires a lot more than just that. Any water that's been in contact with the ground or lingered more than 24 hours will be filled with bacteria, viruses, and fungi. This means that expert disinfection and cleaning are also necessary. As is immediate water damage dry out to prevent further deterioration and additional water damage repairs.
Water Damage Restoration
Whether from storm flooding, a roof leak, a plumbing failure, or an appliance break down, ignoring proper water damage restoration can lead to hidden water damage. That can be extensive and expensive, yet not be evident for weeks. Following industry best-practices our water damage restoration specialists take a two-phase approach, supplemented additional certified technicians in areas such as anti-microbial remediation, upholstery and carpet cleaning, odor removal, and others.
By removing water from building surfaces as quickly and as thoroughly as possible, we reduce indoor humidity and reduce total drying time by a full day or more. Our advanced water extraction vacuums are up to twice as effective as other equipment, not just for floors but for walls and ceilings as well.
Building Structural Dry-Out
To pull out moisture trapped deep within the building's structure, we deploy a carefully selected mix of commercial air movers, refrigerant dehumidifiers, and other specialized heaters and drying equipment. Our experts make frequent measurements to optimize drying and to assure that moisture throughout the building is down to safe levels before we stop. That typically takes 3-4 days, even during damp Bay Area weather.
Storm Damage Repair
As a licensed California general contractor, we can also take care of roof damage, broken windows, outdoor debris removal, and so on. But most importantly, we have the experience, expertise, and training to fully understand the unique nature of water damage repairs.
