What qualities should I look for in a restoration company?

Not all restoration companies are the same. You want a local, dependent and experienced company that is IICRC Certified. This certification ensures the company has done their due diligence and you will not receive faulty work from properly trained service professionals. You can verify all certification.

Please be aware of potential scams from disaster response and restoration firms. Never pay cash for services and verify the authenticity of the company. Visit their home office, speak with your local Chamber of Commerce and ask your friends or family if they have ever had dealings with the company.

Accuracy: The restoration company should provide an accurate estimate and timeline for your project. If they estimate $1000 and one week for completion but it takes $3000, and a month, they did not deliver on their service agreement. The Eco Water Restoration Service Guarantee protects you from such a predicament because we agree upon the price and scope of the project with your insurance carrier and the restoration is expedited.

Quality: The last thing you should have to deal with after an emergency or disaster is employing a company that cuts corners and puts your property at further risk due to their poor craftsmanship.

What causes water damage?

Water damage can be attributed to natural disasters as well as plumbing issues with a home. Eco Water Restoration Service can take care of water damage, regardless of the cause.

  • Overflowing toilets
  • Leaking or malfunctioning water heaters
  • Burst pipes
  • Flooding, heavy rain and storms
  • Broken and leaking sprinklers
  • Fire damage

What are some hidden signs of water damage?

Water damage can reside in the walls and ceilings long after they have dried out. Using a moisture meter will determine how much moisture is behind the walls. If you have moisture behind the walls, chances are mold will grow there within 36 to 72 hours. Wet insulation is also an excellent place for odors and fungi growth. Water will damage computers, electronics, office equipment, paper files, furniture, artwork, and musical instruments too. Any number of items might look dry on the outside but contain unwanted moisture, creating future, permanent damage. Call us at 305-228-0063 to assist you in water damage clean up.

How can we safely inspect our house or facility for water damage?
The most effective way to test any structure for water damage is to utilize the services of a professional. Professional restoration technicians will have the equipment needed to test for water damage and the experience of knowing where to check. The longer water sits, the more damage is done, and the more mold grows, escalating your repair and restoration expenses.
How does the water removal and remediation process work?
  1. Extract as much water as possible.
  2. Remove furniture from the affected area or put furniture on blocks.
  3. Correctly take the carpet from floors. If done incorrectly, the carpet will rip as well as ruin carpet seams.
  4. Remove wet padding and dispose.
  5. Extract as much water from the sub floor as possible.
What is air drying?

Air drying uses speed dryers, air movers or other air drying equipment to push the moisture off any affected materials like; carpet, furniture, and walls. The water disperses into the air where a commercial dehumidifier catches and removes it from the room.

Eco Water Restoration Service uses both air movers and dehumidifiers to dry water-damaged areas correctly. Dial 305-228-0063 anytime day or night so we can assist you in water damage clean up, water extraction, and drying.

What is dehumidification?
Dehumidification removes moisture from the air and away from the areas that you want dry. This process helps speed the drying of walls and other affected materials after water damage, decreasing the opportunity for mold growth.
Which insurance companies pay for your water damage extraction and drying services?
All insurance companies pay for Eco Water Restoration Service. As a homeowner or business owner, you have the right to use any company you choose to mitigate the water damage (i.e. extract water, lift carpet, remove padding, remove the wall base, and place air movers and dehumidifiers).
Do you offer free estimates?
Yes! Just give us a call and someone from our restoration team will go out to you and provide a thorough and free estimate.
Can water damage cause mold?
Water damage is the leading cause of mold growth. Mold, like other bacteria, animal or plant life, needs water to grow. Remove the moisture and water, and then you have stopped the mold from growing. From this point, it is still present and you must remediate and remove the mold. There are three main ways for mold to develop:

  1. Moisture
  2. Food source (drywall, carpet, organic dust)
  3. Warm temperatures

Eco Water Restoration Service can assist you with water damage clean up and mold remediation and removal services. Please call us, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 305-228-0063.

How can we help speed up the repair of my home or business after a storm or flood?

After a storm many restoration companies book up quickly, so you want to call a qualified restoration specialist as soon as possible. Call Eco Water Restoration Service at 305-228-0063 for immediate assistance with your storm damage clean up.

  1. Remove as much water as possible.
  2. Get all the items in the affected areas onto wood blocks or off the flooring.
  3. Carefully remove the baseboard from your property and drill large quarter sized holes on the unpainted areas. This will allow air movement to start drying the walls.
  4. Remove any moisture sensitive items like computers, furniture and artwork to areas not affected by the water damage.
