Water Damage Restoration and Flooded Basement
When water moves to areas of your home or office where it doesn't belong, it poses many potential hazards beyond what the eye can see. Water damage can penetrate many surfaces and travel farther than expected. We inspect every area that could have been affected to ensure that no moisture is overlooked. We also work closely with your insurance company to make things run smoothly.
Water not only affects the flooring where it sits, but it also seeps into the walls and travels to lower levels of a building. It also creates a hazard when it comes in contact with electrical items and duct work.
What Should I do Immediately After Water Damage?
If your house has experienced flooding, you'll want to prevent further damage to your belongings and protect your family. Here are a few easy things you can do before we arrive:
- Stay out of the affected areas if you suspect an electrical hazard may exist.
- Move contents to a dry area that is not affected by water (plastic tables, garage floor, etc.) If you have furniture with wooden legs, place boards, tin foil, or plastic wrap on or under the legs to prevent them from absorbing more water.
- Safely place a fan, directed at the wet area, to help circulate air and evaporate the remaining moisture. This will help prevent mold and bacteria growth before we even arrive. (These suggestions are not intended to be a complete solution to your serious water damage problems. These are only temporary water mitigation solutions to help prevent further damage before we arrive.)
- Once we arrive, we make sure the source of the water has been shut off or repaired.
- We'll perform an assessment of the affected areas, photographing and documenting all findings for the insurance company.
- Our team will extract remaining standing water using our heavy-duty, powerful truck-mounted extractors prior to removing any wet, damaged materials.
Clark and Jackson County Sewage Cleanup
Regardless of where it came from, sewage is no laughing matter and needs to be managed by trained professionals. Whether it came from a drain in the basement, a broken sewer pipe, or a backed up toilet, sewage cleanup requires special attention to insure safety and cleanliness. We use specialized equipment and protective gear to keep us safe while cleaning and sanitizing the affected areas.
After we arrive and assess the situation, we use truck-mounted extraction units to remove solids from the area. Items that can be cleaned and sanitized will be taken care of immediately. Property and items that have been affected that cannot be salvaged will be discarded. Most commonly, porous materials such as carpet, stuffed animals, and rugs need to be discarded because of their ability to absorb and retain harmful bacteria. Once we reach the bare floor it will be cleaned, sanitized, and dried to ensure an ideal setting for floor covering to be re-laid and contents to be moved back into the space.
To finish out the process, we thoroughly dry the affected area with air-movers and dehumidifiers to prevent further moisture damage, as well as mold and bacteria growth. This ensures a healthy, inhabitable environment for you and your family.
Our technicians will get your world back to normal. Call ServiceMaster of Clark and Jackson County for more information.
How Much Does It Cost to Fix Water Damage?
The cost of water damage restoration depends on the extent of the water damage, the cause of the damage, where it occurred in the house, and how many rooms have been affected. On average, water damage removal and restoration services cost between $1,200 and $5,500. While additional costs could include preventative care and mold remediation, qualifying homeowners with insurance plans could offset some of those prices.

How Can I Prevent Water Damage in My Home?
At ServiceMaster of Clark and Jackson County, we excel in water damage restoration, but we firmly believe that prevention is the first line of defense.
Here are some tips to help you prevent water damage in your home:
- Plumbing Inspections: Regularly inspect your plumbing system for leaks, signs of wear and tear, or any issues that could lead to water damage. If you spot any problems, address them promptly to prevent further damage.
- Gutter and Downspout Maintenance: Ensure your gutters and downspouts are clear of debris and functioning properly. This upkeep prevents overflowing water and standing water, which can cause significant damage.
- Sump Pump Installation: Consider installing a sump pump in your basement or crawl space. This invaluable tool helps prevent water damage resulting from flooding by swiftly redirecting excess water away from your home.
- Appliance Vigilance: Check that your water-dependent appliances, such as the washing machine, dishwasher, and water heater, are in good working condition and not prone to leaks. Address any malfunctions promptly.
- Water Alarms and Shut-off Valves: Enhance your defense with water alarms and shut-off valves. These devices can detect leaks and automatically shut off the water supply, mitigating damage before it worsens.
Taking these proactive measures can save you from the inconvenience and financial burden of dealing with water damage. Prevention is the key to a secure and worry-free home.
