We've got you covered with a comprehensive range of water damage services:
Residential Appliance Leaks Cleanup Services
How do water heaters fail?
- Deposits accumulate on the bottom of the tank that corrode the tank liner and heater elements
- When the corroded bottom of a tank fails without warning, the water already in the tank and the continuously fed cold-water supply create a deluge
- If not stopped, this water will continue to flow throughout your home
- Water accumulation beneath the heater
- A hissing or whistling sound
- Chronic hot water shortages during periods of normal demand
- Have the water heater inspected regularly
- Install a catch pan with a drain connected to a waste line, sump pump or other means of channeling water out of your home
- Easy access to controls mounted on the water heater. Automatic shut off valve (ASOV)
- Consider installing a water alarm, which are available from several manufacturers
- Get a tankless water heater that eliminates the traditional storage tank and heats water directly when there is a call for hot water
- Install an insulation blanket around the tank to lower energy costs and help reduce the extreme temperature changes that add to tank wear
We'll not only fix the problem promptly but will investigate the initial reason of what caused the damage to occur. We have 60+ years of experience, and an ongoing commitment to learning new techniques and technologies to achieve the best results for homeowners like you. As one of the industry's "go-to" advisors, we're the company you want on your side when disaster strikes.
Residential Roof Leak Cleanup Services
Roofs most often reach the point of catastrophic failure when one or more of these conditions occur:
When roofs are left in place beyond their useful life, leaks occur within the home and the number and severity of these leaks will increase over time.
As a result of an aging roof, accumulated water isn’t dispensed properly and is trapped in the roof and leads to saturated and ruined materials.
HIGH WIND DAMAGE
During high winds and severe weather, your roof is susceptible to partial or entire removal.
When a layer of ice or snow builds up on your roof in sub-freezing temperatures, ice dams become a concern. The radiant heat from your home melts some of the snow and ice, allowing the resulting liquid water to run down your roof to the gutters in a normal fashion. However, once the water reaches the gutters away from the heat of the home, it can refreeze, build-up and block additional melt water.
Residential Basement or Leaking Pipes Cleanup Service
Water intrusions can occur in basements from sources inside and outside the structure. Excessive rain or snow melt can over saturate the ground, resulting in hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure occurs when moisture outside of the basement or foundational wall exceeds the pressure inside. Water will naturally seek the lower pressure, resulting in foundational leaks and even cracks.
Here's how we get your home back to normal:
- We use proprietary products that were developed exclusively for ServiceMaster Restore®
- We remove the water quickly and efficiently before the water starts to cause structural damage and secondary water problems
- We bring in dehumidifiers that work to remove the moisture and start moving the air to help to dry out the basement
- Once the water and the moisture are completely removed, we will clean, sanitize and treat the area with an antimicrobial agent to make sure that mold does not form
- We work with you through every step of the process and often times, work with your insurance company to get your claims processed as quickly as possible
A flooded basement is not only one of the most destructive events your home can experience, it’s also one of the most emotionally stressful events you may ever go through. Our team of trained, caring, and professional water damage technicians is here for you and your family. We’ll guide you through the process and do everything as quickly and efficiently as possible in order to get your home and life back to normal.

CLEAN WATERThe technology and tools to do the job right
This refers to flooding from a source of water that does not pose any threat to humans. If flooding from a clean source of water like this is treated quickly we can often save your carpets, upholstery and rugs.
Water that is not necessarily clean but is not hazardous (washing machine and dishwasher overflow, for example). Carpet “may” be saved but replace pad. Upholstered furniture may need to be replaced.
Comes from flooding from an extremely unsanitary source such as sewage backup or runoff water which contains harmful bacteria and fungi which will cause severe discomfort or sickness. These losses are hazardous and should be handled with caution. Neither carpet or pad can be saved. Consult a professional to know what your options are for upholstered furniture.
- To restore your carpet and upholstery, we use:
- Truck mount and portable cleaning systems with exclusive cleaning solutions
- Powerful equipment that will quickly extract all traces of water
- A variety of our safe cleaning products
