If water damage occurs to your property, please call us immediately. Standing water can be dangerous, causing slip and fall accidents and electrical shocks. We have commercial-grade water extractors that can remove water quickly – when every minute matters. Our state-of-the-art dryers can begin to immediately reduce the relative humidity inside a room or building, which helps prevent mold and mildew. And our sophisticated thermal camera can detect how far the water damage has extended, which allows us to better concentrate our heating and drying efforts.

Water damage prevention tip: Year-round, it’s a good idea to get in the habit of shutting off the water to your house every time you leave town. If you’re on a well system, shut off your well pump, which you can typically do at the circuit breaker. If you’re on town water, turn off the main water line into your home.
