Our Flood Damage Recovery Services
Water Damage Restoration
Water damage is a costly issue to fix. We have been restoring homes and businesses throughout Michigan for many years, employing professional drying and reconstruction techniques to get buildings back to what they once were. You can count on our expertise to restore your building as efficiently and effectively as possible.
One of the most common areas to flood in a building is the basement. As the area where you store important documents or use daily, a basement flood can seem catastrophic. We can help assess the water damage and classify it for insurance purposes as clean, gray, or black water. We can remove the water and begin structural drying to restore your basement to the fullest possible extent.
Standing water is highly dangerous on any property. We will assess the condition of your water and remove it once it is determined to be safe.
Mold is an unfortunate aftereffect of water damage. If you find yourself dealing with mold growth, we can help! It is vital to call in a professional as soon as you notice it, as mold can cause serious health concerns.
A careful science, structural drying is a sophisticated method of mitigating water damage. We employ psychometrics to verify the productivity of our drying methods using a state-of-the-art thermal imaging camera. This camera enables us to pinpoint water invasion and see where excess moisture might be hiding. Our tools give us the ability to determine that you space is 100% dry before we leave the premises.
Flood Insurance Assistance
Filing an insurance claim can be a daunting and confusing process. It is quite common for homeowners and business owners to be unsure what exactly their insurance covers. You can trust our team to help you report a loss and begin the restoration process.
Not all floods are alike—some develop slowly over time due to rain or melt-off. Flash floods can develop quickly without any visible signs of rain and without notice. These flash floods often have a dangerous wall of water carrying rocks, mud and other debris, sweeping away anything in its path. It is important to put your safety first and steer clear of floodwaters. If you are in an emergency situation involving floodwaters, move to high ground and be prepared to stay where you are for the best protection.
Six inches of moving water can knock a person down, and two feet of moving water can sweep your car away. Whether you’re walking or driving, stay clear of floodwater.

If you carry flood insurance, call your insurance provider to report your loss;. If not, be aware that it takes 30 days for flood insurance to go into effect.
