We Can Walk You Through The Water Restoration Process
Water restoration service starts with extracting all of the water from your home or business. This process includes using high suction wet dry vacuums, truck-based extraction units and industrial based dehumidifiers to remove both surface water and anything that has been absorbed into fabrics and wood. Once the water extraction is finished, we will remove any items that are not salvageable and replace them (carpet and padding are usually replaced). Other items are cleaned and hand dried by our specialist team. We replace and repair any structural elements that were damaged by the water including drywall. We then repaint the area, repair or replace the carpet and drapes and restore you personal items to their pre-disaster state.
We Perform Thorough & Dependable Contents Restoration
Our content restoration team excels at repairing water damage to family keepsakes and heirlooms, including photo albums and other keepsakes. We work both on-site and off to restore your contents, from electronic equipment and appliances to furniture and documents. We can also help you assess the value of items that are not recoverable, to help you get what you deserve from your insurance provider.
We Handle 100% Of the Water Damage Restoration Process
Flood damage is insidious. Water seems into every crack and crevice of you home and creates a perfect habitat for mold and mildew growth. If you try to clean up the mess yourself, you may be leaving structural issues that will continue to deteriorate for years to come. Only a professional water damage cleanup company will eliminate all of your mold and mildew concerns.

What Causes Water Damage?
Most of the water damage in San Diego is caused by faulty plumbing, plumbing appliances, and plumbing fixtures. Common culprits include poor hose and line connections, burst pipes, overflowing sinks and toilets, and leaking dishwashers and washing machines. These kinds of sources often leave you with water damaged ceilings, floors, walls, furniture, and basements.
Storm damage is a less common cause of damage in our area, but it still happens. A hard downpour, with or without higher wind speeds, can contribute to leaking ceilings, roofs, doors, and windows. While this sort of water damage might not prevent you from using essential parts of your house, it’s also a lot harder for a homeowner to stop on their own, once it has begun. Be sure to call a water restoration service at the first signs of damage to minimize your costs.
What are Water Damage Categories?
In the water damage repair & restoration industry, water damage is categorized based on the contamination level, to determine the exact repair methods necessary.
Category 1 Water
Category 1 water, or “clean water”, poses the least threat to your home and health. Broken water supply lines and fixtures generally classify as category 1 water damage. This kind of damage generally requires water cleanup, drying and dehumidification, but only minimal sanitation.
Category 2 Water
Category 2 water, or “grey water”, contains at least some degree of physical, biological, or chemical contaminants that generally cause sickness or discomfort if ingested. Sump pump failures, dishwasher and washing machine leakage, and urine contamination all qualify as category 2 water. This kind of water can require significant decontamination and sanitation by a water damage specialist to make the building interior safe and inhabitable.
Category 3 Water
Category 3 water, or “black water”, is extremely unsanitary. Sources include sewage, standing water, ground surface water, fecal contaminated water, or many types of environmental water, such as flood water. It can include many types of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms that can pose significant health risks. Dealing with category 3 water can require extensive water remediation, decontamination and sanitation, as well as prolonged relocation for residents. Since category 2 water can be reclassified as category 3 water, if it is left to stand for a length of time, it is vital to always call a water mitigation company at the absolute first sign of trouble.
