Certified Water Removal Company

Respond Quickly & Help You File Your Insurance Claim

We will arrive at your property in a timely matter ready to inspect the extent of the damage. In emergency water damages, it is important to get the water out as soon as possible to prevent any chances of microbial growth or secondary damages to unaffected areas. Once the water is out, it’s time to set up the drying equipment. We utilize the most advanced drying equipment in the industry to quickly and efficiently dry-out a structure. This process usually takes at least 3 days.

While the certified water damage technicians handle your water loss, a Project Manager will be assigned to your project. He or she will go over with you the step-by-step process on how to file a claim with your insurance carrier. Once that claim is filed, an adjuster will be assigned to you and you will receive a claim number. Through the entire process the project manager will remain in constant communication with your insurance adjuster.

Drying & Monitoring Process

Water damage is not biased to what gets damaged and what doesn’t. For example walls, wood components, contents, flooring and insulation may all be damage when in contact with water. Therefore, our technicians will evaluate the extent of the damage using advanced professional moisture detection equipment. Furthermore, the technician will set a “drying goal” and try to meet that goal as efficiently and quickly as possible by utilizing the right tools, equipment, and methods.

Monitoring the equipment is important but so is monitoring of the air being dried which is the invisible part of this whole process technically called “Atmospheric Readings” these are taken with RH units called hygrometers this tool will let us know that we have the affected air at optimum drying conditions to dry the building material in the quickest time possible.

Water Damage Restoration FAQ

What are the signs of water damage?

Visual signs of water damage consist of cracking, bubbling and/or peeling paint, dark spots, and discoloration that keeps getting worse day by day. Musty odors are another sign of water damage. Also, an increase in your utilities bills and sounds of running water or hissing noise from possible pinhole leak in a supply line. Mold growth is another indicator of a water damage which can be an active or past water issue.

Does a water damage company need to be licensed?

According to CSLB, any contracted work for more than $500 that requires the altering or construction to any building (home or business) must be licensed through the California State License Board. Most water damages consist of removing and or drying building materials that requires extensive knowledge. Since water damage restoration is a specialty trade, hiring a licensed water damage contractor is ideal. As license contractors with water damage expertise, we are familiar with dealing with insurance companies, adjusters, and being well-versed in almost all avenues of construction from plumbing, electrical, up to architecture and engineering vs the average contractor that is used to only handle buildings from ground up or through a private contract not involving insurance. We are capable of navigating our clients through the insurance claim while being able to be California compliant with proper licensing and insurance.

Can I use my property insurance to file a claim for water damage?

We recommend you reach out to your agent to file a claim with your insurance carrier while also describing your damage to the agent who can provide you with an overview of your policy and what you would essentially be covered for.

How can you prevent water damage?

The best way to prevent water damage is to have an inspection program in place. This might sound like a lot but it’s essentially like the initial home inspection, when you bought the property. In most cases, property owners only do it when they purchase a property and never have it done again. We have a “water damage preventative” package that consist of an inspection of the property to note where potential water damage issues may be present and how they should be corrected. If interested, email info@first2respond.com and mention the “water damage preventative” package in the subject line.
