We provide water extraction, drying, and dehumidification services to ensure that no excess moisture remains hidden behind walls or within the materials of your home.


There are many scenarios that cause water damage to your home or business. ServiceMaster Restore DCS knows that water damage emergencies in your home can be traumatic for you and your family. That’s why it’s critical for professionals to immediately address, assess and fix the problem. When our team arrives on the scene, we will get to work to identify sources of water like leaks, broken irrigation, or damaged appliances. Once we isolate the origin of the problem, we will quickly begin applying the most effective solutions for drying your home and keeping water out for good.



Heavy rainfall can put any building’s foundations to the test. When storms get intense, water becomes powerful and destructive literally a force of nature. Whether it’s a flash flood, hurricane, tornado, or blizzard, when water hits your property all at once, it’s a serious matter. No one can be prepared for every eventuality, but when something goes wrong, you’ll have our help.


Basements are magnets for runoff water, whether from rain, roof drainage, a malfunctioning sump pump, or some other source. It only takes one crack in the foundation for water to flow in. ServiceMaster Restore DCS professionals are highly trained to get water out of your basement, clean and preserve your possessions, and dry everything quickly to minimize damage. We don’t quit until we verify that the job is done.


Not only can a sewer backup lead to flooding, the result is sometimes dangerous. Gray- or black-water contamination can contain pathogens that lead to infection or serious illness. Flooding from sewer blockages should be considered an emergency and be dealt with immediately.


When your faucet, tub, water heater, or other appliance leaks, the results can vary from annoying to devastating. Water that builds up on a floor can make its way inside, collecting in hard-to-reach places. You then run the very real risks of wood damage and mold contamination.


If your property caught on fire and firefighters were called in, or you dealt with the fire yourself with water, you may be dealing with the one-two punch of both fire damage and water damage. ServiceMaster Restore DCS has the expertise to fully restore your home, addressing both types of damage at once..


At ServiceMaster Restore, we set industry wide standards and apply more than 65 years of experience to recovering your important documents, using a step-by-step process to return them to pre-loss condition. Call the experts at ServiceMaster Restore today.

Flooded Basement Cleanup

Basements are the lowest point in a home and tend to flood first during any kind of rainstorm. When the unanticipated happens, we are onsite within 2-4 hours to bring back your home as quickly as possible. With rapid response, your floors, walls, and personal estate can often be restored. Water interruptions can occur in basements from sources inside and outside the building.

Excessive rain or snow melt can over-saturate the ground, resulting in hydro-static pressure. Hydro-static 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.

  • We eliminate the water quickly and professionally—before the water starts to cause structural damage and secondary water problems.
  • We bring in dehumidifiers that work to eliminate the moisture and start changing the air to help to dry out the basement.
