Water and Flood Damage Restoration
FAST RESPONSE TIME IS THE ANSWER TO SUCCESSFUL WATER DAMAGE RESTORATION
If your home or business requires water damage restoration due to a wet basementor flood, damaged plumbing or appliances, or excess water as a result of fire suppression, quick response time is the key to successful water damage restoration.
The effects of basement flood damage or other water damage can go quickly from bad to irreparable if not addressed immediately. Excess water in your home or business can cause electrical hazards, expensive damage to your property structure and furnishings, and lead to the growth of hazardous mold.
Water damage is a significant danger to both homes and businesses. Beginning water mitigation and extraction procedures as soon as possible prevents water damage from spreading, lowers costs and means less stress for you. Waiting to begin water and flood restoration services can cause secondary damage to your property, carpets and other furnishings in your home or business, and can also lead to the spread of hazardous mold contamination.
Waiting can also contribute to extreme water damage to hardwood floors and require costly replacement, and contribute to unpleasant odours from absorbed water that can be difficult to get rid of.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU EXPERIENCE WATER DAMAGE FROM A BASEMENT FLOOD OR OTHER SOURCE.
- Call for professional help. Structural damage from water and bacteria growth can begin within hours.
- Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting.
- Remove wet area rugs or other floor coverings not permanently attached. Do not attempt to start removing your wall-to-wall carpet. This should only be done by professional restoration specialists.
WATER DAMAGE PREVENTION TIPS
Regularly check the following to ensure they are secure, in good condition and leak free:
- Hot water tanks, washing machine hoses, dishwashers, refrigerators and ice makers.
- Clean your gutters every autumn to prevent backup and leaks.
- Prevent frozen pipes and potential flooding by keeping your home or business heated while you’re away for an extended period of time.
- Close interior valves for exterior faucets during the winter months.
Leave cabinet doors open during extremely cold weather to allow warm air in to help prevent pipes from freezing.
How long will it take my property to dry after flooding or other water damage?
Drying time after water damage in your commercial property is determined by a combination of factors including the location, duration and source of water; the types of building materials in your facility; weather conditions; and how quickly emergency services are started. Through consistent monitoring and evaluation of the drying process, our trained technicians can determine when the drying is complete. For example, carpet may feel dry to the touch, but padding and subfloors may still be wet underneath. While there are no hard and fast rules to determine how long your property will take to dry, we can tell you it may take between three and five days or more, depending on the conditions.
Who is responsible for paying for the service?
As the commercial property owner, you are responsible for payment and will need to sign a form authorizing payment for the restoration services. If this is an insurance claim, ServiceMaster Restore generally collects only the deductible (co-payment) amount from you and bills the balance to your insurance provider as a service to you. If you have a large loss, your mortgage company may be included as a payee on the payment from your insurance company, and you may need to obtain a signature from them as well. If your claim is not covered by insurance or you decide not to file a claim, you will be expected to pay in full. A payment schedule may be agreed upon prior to the start of any non-insured work.
