There aren't many things that can make a homeowner feel more helpless than flood waters encroaching on their property. If your home becomes a victim of external flooding, it's critically important that immediate action is taken to no only ensure the safety of the dwelling but to minimize the overall damage to the structure. Flood waters are considered category 3 water, or black water, meaning they can contain a wide array of contaminants that should only be handled by a professional restoration team. From the moment flood water infiltrates your property, you'll want to act swiftly. Fortunately, the IICRC certified crew at Elite Restoration is ready 24/7 to help.

Water extraction and removal on its own is not enough to remove all of the moisture from your home or business after you've experienced water damage. Water is pervasive and remaining moisture can hide behind the walls, inside the ceiling, under the flooring, and even inside your HVAC system where it can wreak havoc if not properly dried out. Our trained and certified technicians have the equipment necessary to detect this hidden water. We're ready to handle your structural drying emergency 24/7 and have the expertise to provide expert drying and dehumidification services with high-velocity air movers and dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the air and your structure. Your property is one of your greatest investments, and with so much at stake you can trust Elite Restoration to help you get things back to pre-loss conditions as soon as possible so that you can keep moving forward.
Forms of Water Damage
Water damage insurance claims depend on a few different criteria. Ultimately, that's a question you'll have to clarify with your insurance company. However, we can tell you that the viability of water damage insurance claims depends primarily on what caused the damage (storm, burst pipe, plumbing malfunction, localized flood, sump pump failure, etc.). Some insurance policies will outline scenarios that will NOT be covered without specific riders like flood insurance, or sump pump failure insurance.
Contacting a restoration contractor as well as your insurance adjuster at the same time is a good idea because the restoration contractor will help make sure that not only will the water extraction and dry out be covered but the rebuild process that should follow. If the full scope of the claim isn't outlined and agreed upon from the start, there may be issues down the line, and property owners may find themselves having to pay out of pocket to get the property completely back to normal.
That depends on the types of materials that were affected by water. Drywall, carpet, and hardwood floors will take longer to dry than other materials in the space. We use moisture meters throughout the process and in many different locations to gauge the moisture levels and will continue to adjust our fans and dehumidifiers to achieve an efficient but effective dry time. The bare minimum of "three days to dry" may only produce a surface dry, but can still leave behind moisture levels that create an ideal environment for mold to grow.
Most homeowners start trying to remove the water themselves before they realize they'll need to contact their insurance company about a claim so they can call in a water damage restoration company. However, standing water around anything with a power cord or outlet or sagging ceilings make the area unsafe. Also, many insurance claims require documentation of the loss BEFORE any work is done, including removing the water. Always take plenty of photos of the damage you see before taking any action to start cleaning up the mess. Your restoration contractor will be able to back up your insurance claim scope with the necessary technical documentation as well.
Identifying the source of the water damage is one of the first steps in both the insurance claim process and before beginning to dry out and repair the damaged areas. After all, if you replace a sagging, wet ceiling that was caused by a roof leak but don't fix the roof, too, the next rainstorm will start the cycle all over again. The buckling to your hardwood floor could be caused by a leaking pipe. We will pinpoint the exact cause of your water damage and make sure the source is repaired. We make sure your restoration job is done right the first time.
