Flooding can be traumatic. Whether it’s happened at your home or your office, seeing water standing on the floors and soaking walls can be scary. Flash floods, busted pipes, or overflowing toilets can be your worst enemy. Luckily, we can be your best friend when it comes to getting quick help for your flood cleanup needs. We proudly service the entire Atlanta metro area and can be on-site within minutes to extract water and cleanup flood damage, no matter how big or small!
What you can’t see, can hurt you!
Cleaning up flood damage isn’t as simple as extracting water and opening up windows to let in fresh air. In fact, extracting standing water is probably the easiest thing to do. The real danger lies in the water and moisture you can’t see. Take a look at the image below:
If you tried to tackle the flood cleanup process yourself, you’d probably take a look at this area and think everything was good to go. Unfortunately, you’d be mistaken and that mistake would end up costing you in the long run. We use moisture detectors equipped with infrared systems that can look inside your walls for hidden moisture.
Why is important to remove all moisture from flood damaged areas?
If not properly dried out, moisture provides the perfect environment for mold to grow. Especially in a humid place like Atlanta, mold can begin growing within hours of moisture settling into your floors or walls. And anytime you’re face with black mold, you’re dealing with a situation that is extremely toxic. Black mold can cause serious illness if not remediated properly. And if you think flood restoration services are expensive, wait until you get a quote for mold remediation!!!

A Rapid Response. When dealing with flood damage, it’s all about speed. Cleaning up floods quickly is our specialty…with crews scattered throughout the metro area, we can respond quickly to your emergency and begin the process of getting your home or office building back to normal quickly.
A Free Estimate. We always offer free estimates for any flood damage cleaning or restoration service you might need. The estimate will come in writing and is produced by calculating software used by all major insurance companies, so you know whatever price you are quoted is fair and will not be challenged during the claims process by your adjuster.
A Helping Hand. We aim to make the the flood cleanup process as simple as possible for you. One way we try to help is by handling the claims process with your adjuster. We have people on staff that are insurance specialists and can work directly with your adjuster to settle your claim quickly and jump over any hurdles that might pop up during the process.
Then you need to make sure the estimating process is done correctly and with integrity. Too often, a flood restoration company will come in to a home and prey on the homeowners’ vulnerability. What usually happens is they estimate a lot of extra work that increases the scope of work unnecessarily, then when it comes time to seek payment from your insurer, the adjuster rightly denies a portion of the claim. That should never happen, but it does.
At RestorationEze, we make sure you always get a flood cleanup estimate that will be accepted by your insurer because all of our flooding mitigation companies use Xactimate. If you want to learn how that system works, watch the short video below:
If you will be filing a claim, your insurer’s web site will have tips on what to do if you are filing a water damage claim. While every carrier is different, the key things to do are make sure the source of the flooding damage is stopped (if you need to shut off the main water supply to the house, do so immediately) and that you document any actions taken. That means taking pictures (if it is safe to do so) and saving any receipts you might have.
Of course, the best thing to do is take a pro-active approach to preventing flooding damage. The LSU AgCenter has compiled a great list of flood prevention tips and resources you should check out if you have a moment!
The actual process will be determined by the loss itself. That is why we have to get onsite to provide a customized home flood mitigation plan. The size and scope of the project ultimately dictates the best path forward, but in many cases the steps taken usually break down into 5 phases, highlighted in the video below. We hope you’ll take a minute to watch the video so you can see for yourself what a professional flood cleanup company does to help you get back on your feet quickly!
