Water within your property can rapidly cause a huge amount of damage leading to serious structural problems and the potential for mold growth if it's not dealt with immediately. The sooner the water is removed from the property, the more the damage will be reduced. Our trained and certified team at ERC Services is ready 24/7 to offer immediate emergency water extraction services in Galveston, TX. You can have some peace of mind knowing your property is in safe hands. Our emergency extraction service will remove any standing water from the home so a more thorough drying process can begin. Complete extraction is necessary for proper drying, so calling a professional is imperative for the full recovery of your property. When you experience a water damage issue and have standing water in your home, call us immediately at (832) 974-2734. We're always ready to help.
It's important to understand that although some materials can't be salvaged when you experience water damage, a lot of them can be saved as long as the drying process is fast and thorough.

Our expert emergency water response crew is available 24/7 to act fast and minimize the damage to your property. Even if there is no visible standing water, the materials and contents inside your home are still wet.

Flood damage is a terrifying and stressful experience for any homeowner. Once the floodwaters have begun to recede, you can count on ECO Restoration & Cleaning Services to be available to begin the flood damage restoration process.

Sewage backups are always a serious cause for concern because sewage water contains many contaminants that are hazardous to your and your family's health.

Our sewage removal services will address the drying of the water and the cleaning of contaminated property to ensure your property is safe. When our expert team of restoration professionals handles your sewage cleanup, you can feel confident that you and your property are in safe hands.

Water damage insurance claims depend on a few different criteria. Ultimately, that's a question you'll have to clarify with your insurance company. However, we can tell you that the viability of water damage insurance claims depends primarily on what caused the damage (storm, burst pipe, plumbing malfunction, localized flood, sump pump failure, etc.). Some insurance policies will outline scenarios that will NOT be covered without specific riders like flood insurance, or sump pump failure insurance.
Contacting a restoration contractor as well as your insurance adjuster at the same time is a good idea because the restoration contractor will help make sure that not only will the water extraction and dry out be covered but the rebuild process that should follow. If the full scope of the claim isn't outlined and agreed upon from the start, there may be issues down the line, and property owners may find themselves having to pay out of pocket to get the property completely back to normal.
That depends on the types of materials that were affected by water. Drywall, carpet, and hardwood floors will take longer to dry than other materials in the space. We use moisture meters throughout the process and in many different locations to gauge the moisture levels and will continue to adjust our fans and dehumidifiers to achieve an efficient but effective dry time. The bare minimum of "three days to dry" may only produce a surface dry, but can still leave behind moisture levels that create an ideal environment for mold to grow.
Most homeowners start trying to remove the water themselves before they realize they'll need to contact their insurance company about a claim so they can call in a water damage restoration company. However, standing water around anything with a power cord or outlet or sagging ceilings make the area unsafe. Also, many insurance claims require documentation of the loss BEFORE any work is done, including removing the water. Always take plenty of photos of the damage you see before taking any action to start cleaning up the mess. Your restoration contractor will be able to back up your insurance claim scope with the necessary technical documentation as well.
If the water damage involves Category 1 water (clean and free of microbes and bacteria), many of your personal belongings can be salvaged. Category 2 water would include other water sources, including rainwater, that, while not containing biohazards or sewage, still pose health risks and the potential for destructive microbial growth and mold. A water damage restoration technician will help you sort through the contents of the property to determine what can be safely dried, what can be restored by a textile/contents technician, and what can't be saved or salvaged. There are off-site facilities in the area that specialize in restoring water-damaged contents. Your restoration team will document all of the contents leaving the property for restoration or disposal for your records and also for reimbursement from your insurance company.
Identifying the source of the water damage is one of the first steps in both the insurance claim process and before beginning to dry out and repair the damaged areas. After all, if you replace a sagging, wet ceiling that was caused by a roof leak but don't fix the roof, too, the next rainstorm will start the cycle all over again. The buckling to your hardwood floor could be caused by a leaking pipe. We will pinpoint the exact cause of your water damage and make sure the source is repaired. We make sure your restoration job is done right the first time.
