Residential House Flood Services
Residential Water, Sewage, and Mold Cleanup: Many homeowners and occupants will have to deal with a water damage clean up situation while in their home. Most times water that needs to be cleaned up will be the result of something small like a leaky pipe, or a small water spill. Sometimes, however, a water damage cleanup will be large.
In these cases the cause of the water on the floor is usually a hot water tank that has a leaking valve, or worse — a busted water line in the house. In these cases, it is more than appropriate to hire a water damage cleanup company to help with your cleanup. We are a certified, professional water damage mitigation company and are prepared to help you in your water damage cleanup.
We answer the tough questions like, "is water damage covered by my home insurance?"
Adjusters on Staff
Work on Your Behalf
It has been our experience that adjusters only want to know two things. 1) What happened, 2) What are the damages. The question of 'what happened' triggers a direction toward "approved" or "denied". For example, if you use the term 'flood' because your living room is literally flooding with water, then the admin who takes your initial call may actually say that they don't cover floods. This sort of low training has been common when our area has had recent heavy rains. However, a well-trained admin would actually ask the question about what is believed to be the cause of your water damage.
Commercial Water Damage Restoration
Commercial Water Damage Cleanup Services / Commercial Sewage Damage Cleanup Services: Commercial water damage or sewage damage can shut down your business for days or weeks depending on the severity of the water or sewage damage. Damage can come from numerous sources like an overflowing toilet, busted sprinkler system, a leaking roof, or even a busted pipe. Calling our water and sewage cleanup company as soon as possible for your commercial property is imperative. The longer water or sewage sits the more damage is caused, not to mention the health risks from sewage and mold growth increase with time as well.

Water removal is one of those few things that should only be done by a professional water removal company. However, Google search for the term "water removal Savannah, GA" does not yield many useful results to choose from: waste management companies, dumpster rental, and medical waste disposal service companies can not and will not be able to remove water and perform proper mitigation.
Settling for a neighbor who will shovel out the sewage waste or renting a WetVac are not good options either. Please continue searching for a water removal and clean up company that is certified in water damage restoration or use the company listed on this page. When selecting your water removal professional, make sure to ask if they are certified in water damage restoration. Most importantly, remember to stay safe and act immediately!
Toilet Overflow is one of the common causes of residential sewage damage. Toilet overflow is usually a result of a septic backup or a blocked drain.
Avoid septic system failure by performing regular maintenance and avoid drain blockage by not flushing items such as sanitary wipes, cat litter, condoms and other things that are not intended to be flushed and you will not have overflowing toilet.
If you believe your toilet is about to overflow (raising sewage water in the toilet bowl), you can prevent devastating sewage damage or limit sewage contamination by following these steps quickly:
Take the toilet tank lid off and plug the rubber flapper valve into the drain leading to the toilet. Then lift up the floater to stop water from entering the toilet tank and lock it in this position. Reach down and close toilet water supply valve. Call the plumber.
If you noticed toilet overflow too late and sewage has already spilled on the floor, that means area is contaminated. Based on what materials have been touched by sewage, you may need to have them removed. If the contaminated area is small 1-2 square feet, hard (tile) and you cleaned sewage up and disinfected the area immediately (wear gloves), you may not need to call water and sewage damage restoration experts. Just the plumber.
However, if you didn't notice overflowing toilet and the toilet overflow affected area is medium to large or if the material is porous (carpet, vinyl, linoleum) or sewage sat there for longer than about 10-20 minutes, you need to call sewage damage restoration company to clean it up. Sewage damage experts usually will arrive quickly and come prepared. Ask the sewage restoration technician what needs to be done and discuss options of filing insurance claim or paying out of pocket.
Cleaning technicians should normally remove the contaminated materials that can not be disinfected in place following the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration standards, apply anti-microbial solution that kills bacteria, parasites, mold and mildew, steam and dry the area.
