Faster To Any Size Disaster
24 Hour Emergency Service
More often than not, water intrusions are emergency situations. Delaying the response, even by a few hours, can cost thousands of dollars. The sooner we can be on site and start the drying process, the lower the overall cost. Insurance companies understand this and are happy to pay for us to start the mitigation immediately, because they understand it saves money in the long run.
Sometimes people delay because they want to hear from the insurance company first, which can be very costly. While all insurance carriers have 24 hour call centres, it might be several days before a claims representative/adjuster is assigned. This is especially true if the damage occurs on a week-end. Don't delay the emergency services!
We are on call and ready to respond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, holidays included.
