Why Choose Us?

Flooding causes major damages, and it causes that damage quickly. So when you call for cleanup and restoration services, you want to make sure you are choosing the right company for the job. With Lake Elsinore Water Damage, you can feel confident that you made the right choice. Some of our qualifications include:

Our Equipment for Flood Damage Cleanup
In the right hands, equipment makes all the difference for getting flood damage cleaned up quickly and saving your belongings. Our #1 piece of equipment for flood damage is a truckmount extraction machine. Think of it as a super high-power vacuum that suctions up water. Not only does it get gallons of water out of your home quickly, but it suctions moisture out of carpets, floors, upholstery, and more. With this machine, we are able to save most carpets from flood damage.

Once standing water has been removed, the next step is to remove any property which you won’t be keeping. Usually carpet padding must be removed as it is like a giant sponge and takes too long to safely dry. We may also need to remove drywall or any surfaces which have been affected by dirty water. When necessary, we offer content pack out services. We remove dry items from the room so they won’t be affected by moisture and so the cleanup and restoration process can go faster.

Using high-power air movers and dehumidifiers from Drieaz, we can quickly dry out surfaces and restore proper humidity levels to your home or business. Equipment can be monitored remotely so there is no need for technicians to come visit during the drying process. An alert response will tell us if humidity levels are too high or equipment needs to be adjusted.

Sanitizing and Deodorizing After Flood Damage

Water, especially flood water, often contains harmful substances like sewage, bacteria, mold, viruses, chemical runoff, and pathogens. It is important that all surfaces affected by flood damage are cleaned to ensure your home is safe and healthy.

Our technicians are IICRC certified for cleaning up hazardous substances brought in by water and flood damage. Using safety protocols which include wearing safety gear, we sanitize surfaces, seal them over, and apply mildicides. The air can be filtered using our HEPA air scrubbers. By the time we are done, your home will be clean and free of odors.

Insurance Coverage for Flood Damage
If your home is affected by water, the insurance company will categorize it based on its source. Water from natural sources such as rainwater or lake water is considered “flooding.” When the water is from a source inside the home, such as a burst pipe, then it is considered “water damage.”

It is important to understand that insurance companies treat Flood Damage and Water Damage very differently. Even if you have 2 feet of water in your basement from a burst pipe, the insurance company will consider it “Water Damage” and NOT “Flood Damage.”

Flood damage is typically not covered in homeowner’s insurance policies. It requires a separate policy. So, if you have standing water in your home from a pipe or appliance malfunction (even if you would call it a flood), don’t use the word flood with the insurance agent.

We can walk you through the insurance claims process for flood or water damage. When our technicians arrive, they will explain what steps you need to take and also document damages for the claim. We will meet with the insurance adjuster and explain all of the damages as well. This is how we can help make sure you get all of the compensation you are entitled to.

We work with ALL insurance companies and bill directly to them!
