Water Damages

Water damages should always be categorized as an emergency. Water can spread throughout a home rapidly, causing devastating damages as it goes.

Water damages can cause mold, damages to the interior of your home, and significant structural damages, therefore it is considered an emergency.


Sewage is always considered an emergency. Sewage contains viruses and bacteria that can make you very sick. Sewage can also cause damages the same as water. Even if the sewage looks like clean water, it can still be hazardous to your health. If you have a sewage backup inside or outside your home, ensure everyone is safe from it and call a certified Disaster Cleanup Company. They have suits and equipment to remove and dispose of the sewage safely.

Fire Damages

Fires can cause major damages and stress for you and your family. Fires are always an emergency. If you have a fire, call the fire department.

Once you have clearance, it is important that you call a professional fire damage restoration specialist. They will come in and remove smoke stains, odors, water damages, and restore your home to its original shape.

Storm Damage

Storms can cause devastating damages to your home. If a storm hit your home and you have water inside, it is an emergency. If you have holes in your roof or broken windows, it is an emergency, especially if it is still raining. Rain can cause major water damages to your home. These damages can happen within minutes. If you are experiencing storm damages, give a storm and water damage specialist as soon as you can.
