Benefits of Professional Utah Flood Damage Restoration
One problem with home flooding is that the damage caused can be worse than it initially appears to be. Even when the water has been cleared, the growth of mold and mildew can become some of the most significant problem within your home. Once these hazards have set in, professional removal services are required to restore the home to its original condition. It can even be unsafe to walk around your home due to weak floorboards and joints caused by water damage. Pests such as termites are attracted to dank environments which only further necessitates the need of a specialist.
Avoid problems with Timely Repair
It is imperative that you contact a flood damage repair expert as soon as possible after a flood affects your home. Living around and being in contact with mold and mildew can harm the health of you and your family. Those with allergies and respiratory problems are especially susceptible.
Weak floorboards and health issues aren’t the only things that can be avoided with timely water damage repair. Major electrical problems can also be avoided if you act quickly after a recent flood. As a general rule, the worst damage happens 48 hours after flooding. It is best to get in contact with a professional within that time frame so that you can avoid severe damage to your belongings. We are also able to help you restore these to a like-new conditions.
What to do before help arrives?
What do you if you’ve already reached out to us and are waiting for our arrival, there are a few things that you can do to lessen the damage and prevent future problems from arising. Remove all members from the flooded areas especially if electrical items have been involved. You may use a sump pump to remove water from your basement or other low-lying area if you own one.
As soon as Utah Flood Cleanup arrives we will start working right away on our Utah flood damage restoration process. We use thermal imagine and other damage restoration technology to ensure that all the damage is pinpointed and repaired as efficiently as possible.

Flood Damage Restoration & Repair Services FAQ
Several factors can lead to water damage in your house. One of the biggest concerns is issues with your home’s plumbing. Old pipes can leak or burst, especially in extreme cold weather. Blockages in your home’s drain lines can cause back-ups that flood into your kitchen, laundry, or bathroom.
Certain parts of your home are also vulnerable to weather-related water damage. These areas include your crawlspace, attic, and basement.
Actually, no, you shouldn’t. When dealing with flooding, speed is of the essence. The faster you can get a remediation team to your home, the less damage you’ll face. For this reason, you should call a company like ours right away so that the damage can be minimized. Call your insurance company next to begin filing an insurance claim.
The water damage restoration process is a fairly involved one. First, we need to deal with all the standing water in your home. Next, we’ll dehumidify your home with industrial-strength dehumidifiers, often over the course of several days. When that’s done, we’ll use specialized equipment to test whether your home is sufficiently dry.
If the flooding is severe enough, some flooring and drywall may need to be replaced, too.
It depends. The recovery phase described above lasts three to four days. If structural or surface repairs are needed (anything from replacing hardwoods and drywall to addressing support concerns), the timeline grows, potentially to a few weeks. We’re dependent on however long it takes suppliers to deliver or produce replacement products.
Costs for water damage mitigation range widely depending on the extent of the damage. We recommend making sure your homeowners insurance covers water damage restoration so that you’re not on the hook for the entire bill. If you have that coverage, you’ll only need to pay for the deductible. Your insurance company will cover the remaining costs (but see the next question).
Of course you should always check the wording in your policy, but most standard policies cover water damage for things that are “sudden and internal.” In other words, they will cover a burst pipe because it’s sudden (no warning) and internal (inside your home). This may also extend to surprise flooding from appliances that were well maintained and in working order. Damage from above due to rain, wind, or snow is usually covered under the roofing portion.
So what isn’t considered “sudden and internal”? External floods or damage from slow leaks or gradual deterioration. You’ll be on the hook for damages of these types unless your homeowners policy states otherwise or you have flood insurance.
Call a company like ours to start the mitigation process, and then call your insurance if it is a covered event. If it’s a catastrophic flood (such as from a hurricane), governmental disaster relief may also be available.
Yes, if you have separate flood insurance, then a storm surge would typically be covered by that. Again, flood insurance is a separate product from your standard homeowners insurance policy. Flood insurance is available through the National Flood Insurance Program, or NFIP, and it isn’t automatic for all people.
That said, some homeowners living in flood-prone areas may be required to purchase flood insurance. It’s possible that some may be paying for it and not realize they have it, so be sure to check.
There are several red flags to watch out for. Outside, if the ground slopes down toward your home at any point, watch the corresponding spot inside. Similarly, if you see damage to your roof or gutters, get it repaired. That kind of damage invites water damage.
Inside your home, look for telltale signs like discoloration on the ceiling or walls. Those familiar brown rings nearly always indicate water damage. Watch out for soft spots on the floor, especially if they’re near any appliance or fixture that uses water. And of course the smell of mold or mildew is another strong indicator of water damage.
