Why Do You Need Water Damage Specialists?
Whether a burst washing machine hose or flooding from a winter storm, it's amazing how much water soaks into the building. Water even makes its way upwards inside walls a foot or more above any on the floor and into the innermost structures. After settling in within just a few minutes, water takes weeks to evaporate. All during that time, it's causing progressive harm to wood, drywall, and more. Some of that damage can be completely hidden. By raising humidity levels, water can lead to mold in as little as 24 hours, damaging furniture and destroying textiles. That's anytime and anywhere in San Diego County, CA, not just during the winter or near the coast. What may not look serious may very well be a big problem.
For anything more than a small amount of water, you need specialized water extraction and structural drying equipment to remove excess moisture from building materials as quickly as possible. Using a shop wet-vac or mopping up isn't enough, nor are cleaning companies and ordinary general contractors. You need certified experts with all the right drying equipment. Your insurance coverage will most likely require certified experts, as it's the assurance all necessary prevention and restoration steps have been taken and correctly performed.
Even though it's a rushed and stressful situation, you need to check out any company you're considering. Do they have the proper training, experience, and equipment? Are they licensed and insured? If not, you're likely to find yourself liable for any worker injury and disaster restoration damage. The flood damage restoration company you choose should have a permanent presence near San Diego. That way, you can have confidence they'll be around in the months and years to come. You can also gauge their professionalism by their membership in various cleaning and restoration industry organizations.

Water Damage Restoration
Water damage may be a slow hidden progression such as from a small plumbing leak inside a wall or a sudden and substantial flood. Following IICRC, CRC, and RIA guidelines, we tailor our water damage restoration process to your specific situation based primarily on the amount of water. We assess the level of damage in a class system – Class 1, a partial room with little wet carpet through Class 4, flooring soaked in several rooms, water-wicking a foot or more up walls, and even hardwood and stonework saturation. We consider these as well as the degree of health hazard – Category 1, directly from drinking-water plumbing through Category 3, storm flooding and sewage backups. The goal of our flood service is always the same – to minimize the cost and time needed for water damage repairs by eliminating harmful levels of moisture as quickly as possible.
Here's an outline of how we use cutting-edge technology and the latest industry best-practices:
Immediate water removal. In cases of flood damage from natural causes, our technicians will first focus their attention on the containment and the isolation of biohazards. They will then follow up with extreme cleaning, disinfecting, and debris removal.
Water extraction. Our unique truck-mounted extraction gear vacuums surface water out of floors, walls, and ceilings. It's roughly twice as effective as the equipment used by carpet cleaners and outperforms most of our competitors, cutting a day or more off drying times.
Building structural dry out. Several types of equipment such as refrigerant dehumidifiers, air movers, and turbo dryers are necessary to pull out every last bit of dampness. Our specialists frequently monitor temperature and humidity and make adjustments for the most rapid drying. We will not stop until excess moisture is down to safe levels.
Our experts will also take care of cleaning and disinfecting regardless of the size or source of water damage. As needed, our water damage restoration services can also include mold remediation. All combined, our state-of-the-art equipment, certified technicians, and decades of experience turn weeks of drying under natural evaporation into typically just 3 to 4 days. Just knowing that is a significant relief to many of our clients.
Content Pack Out and Treatment
Even without ankle-deep flooding, all the wetness absorbed into a home or place of business leads to high humidity. This humidity, in turn, leads to mold and other damage to furniture, drapery, clothes, bedding, and other possessions. It's always good to remove building contents from affected areas. In many cases, that means "pack out," the removal of the items from the premises. Pack out also helps speed the drying of the building. Our pack-out services provide careful preparation, detailed inventory control, transportation, and storage at our secure San Diego County, CA facility. Our specialists will also perform cleaning and other water damage restoration under climate-controlled conditions. When you're ready, we'll "pack in," returning everything to where you want it to be.
We will take care of everything!
Standard homeowner and business insurance policies almost universally exclude water damage repairs due to natural flooding. You need a special flood rider for that. They're expensive, so many people choose FEMA's NFIP (National Flood Insurance Plan). Insurance coverage also excludes preventable damage, and that includes water damage repairs and mold removal that could have been avoided with immediate action from licensed services. Fortunately, the cost of those mitigation steps usually is covered.
Having dealt with pretty much every major insurance company covering San Diego County, CA for two decades, we'll precisely know what mitigation actions are necessary. We also know what detailed documentation is expected for a smooth insurance claims process. We'll provide that through email and web communications, including digital photos, for ongoing communication and faster processing of your claim.
