Emergency Water Damage Restoration Services
ServiceMaster Elite is ready and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to respond to your water damage restoration needs. Regardless of the cause of water damage, the water itself is a destructive component that needs to be addressed quickly and efficiently. Whether it is a clean water source from leaking, broken or frozen water lines or pipes; heavy rain from storms or cresting rivers or streams; or it is water discharge from overflowing sinks, bathtubs or toilets; backed up sewage and septic tank lines or washing machine and dishwasher overflow; response time plays a key-roll in minimizing the impact of the damage.
Our Elite Team has the experience, technology and industry leadership to quickly assess the situation, identify the cause of the flooding, begin extracting existing water, and stabilize and dry out the affected areas including walls, carpet, padding, furniture, baseboards and more. Once the water has been removed, our Elite Construction Team will work to restore your property as if flooding never occurred in the first place. Between the Elite Teams, any necessary remediation services caused by mold and mildew damage will be completed from the start of remediation through reconstruction of all affected areas.
In addition to water remediation and reconstruction, we also provide cleaning and restoration of your possessions that are directly affected by the flooding event. As well as assisting you with filing confusing insurance claims throughout the entire process.

How Quickly Can Water Damage A Home or Business?
Minutes After Flooding Occurs: Within minutes of the initial contact from water, the drywall inside the walls begins to absorb the water and swell. Furniture dyes may begin to run onto surrounding carpet or tile, as well as personal items such as photo albums and books begin to soak up the moisture and warp. Not to mention, electrical components that are low to the ground begin to short out.
First 24 Hours After Flooding Occurs: Within 24 hours of water damage, furniture begins to warp, baseboards and drywall continue to swell and break down, tile becomes compromised due to water intrusion through the grout lines, normal household odors become amplified with the excessive humidity in the room and metal surfaces begin to tarnish.
Within the First Week After Flooding Occurs: Within a week of water damage, wood flooring will begin to blister and warp, paint will bubble, metal surfaces will begin to rust while mildew and mold has started setting in.
A Full Week or More After Flooding Occurs: A full week after water damage, mold begins to sink into and compromise organic materials, which leads to health hazards potentially requiring the occupants to evacuate during the restoration process. This increases the water restoration time and can dramatically increase water restoration costs to restore the structure and safety of the property.
