Fast mitigation of water damage can help preserve & restore your property
Properly drying a flooded basement or home is vital to retaining its property value, and can eliminate the need for additional repairs in the future.
When flood-damaged homes are not completely dried -- and when walls are closed up before having a chance to completely dry out, it can lead to extremely expensive mold damage.
Mold, rot, and other water-related damages can lead to serious long-term health effects, and the eventual costs can easily total $100,000 or more.
We serve Canton, Medina, Akron, Cleveland and many nearby areas, including Elyria, Lakewood, Lorain, Euclid, Mentor, Gates Mills, Cuyahoga Falls and other parts of Ohio.
Professional Water Removal in Ohio
A great deal of flood damage occurs along with fire damage. As fire hoses extinguish the fire in your home, they pump out an estimated 1,000 gallons of water or more every minute!
The key to restoring value to your fire-damaged home is to begin the water removal process within 48 hours.
Flood damage is a complicated problem that calls for a trained, certified professional. Along with the water removal itself, a professional disaster restoration expert can help you address issues such as bacteria, corrosion, damaged personal property, electrical issues, mold remediation, and potential foundation problems.
Water removal and damage restoration is an industry that has made a lot of progress in recent decades.
The original method of vacuuming water and opening windows for ventilation has been long since been replaced by advanced methods and state-of-the-art technology.

Do's and Don'ts of Water Damage
Things you SHOULD do
- Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping or blotting.
- Wipe as much excess water as possible from wood furniture after removal of lamps and other items.
- Hang draperies and pin up furniture skirts as soon as possible.
- Remove and prop-up wet upholstery cushions for even drying (check for bleeding colors).
- Place Saran Wrap, china saucers or unfinished wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
- Turn on air conditioning or open windows in the summer for hot/dry conditions. Turn on dehumidifiers, bathroom and kitchen exhaust fans in winter for wet/cold conditions, to aid in drying and reduce humidity levels.
- Remove all rugs from wet wall-to-wall carpeting.
- Open drawers and cabinet doors for complete drying (do not force).
- Remove valuable oil paintings and art objects to a safe place.
- Blot wet carpeting with clean white towels.
- Open suitcases and boxes to dry, or place in sunlight if possible.
- Punch small holes in sagging ceilings to release trapped water (don’t forget to place pans beneath).
- Protect yourself against contact with sewer and sewage contaminated items. Wear gloves, boots, goggles, protective clothing and respirator if you absolutely have to clean or handle contaminated items. Contact your doctor if you have any adverse health problems.
Things you SHOULD NOT do
- Leave wet fabrics in place – dry as soon as possible.
- Hang furs & leather goods to dry separately at room temperature.
- Leave books and magazines or other colored items on wet carpet or floors.
- Use your household vacuum to remove water or wet/dry vacuum, as an electric shock may result and spread of biocontaminants (sewer).
- Consume any food that may have been left out in a sewage contaminated area.
- Turn on any airmovers that could spread any contaminants from a sewer back up.
- Use TVs or other appliances while standing on wet carpet or floors, especially not on concrete floors.
- Turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet, and keep out of rooms where ceilings are sagging from retained water.
- Activate the HVAC system if it has been directly contacted by water or it might serve as a means of spreading contamination (sewer)
- Stay in building if you have respiratory problems, including allergies and asthma, are under the age of 2 or over 60, have a weakened immune system because of illness, medication or any other reason in a sewer backup situation.
