MHS Restoration - A Division of McMaid

Flood Damage Restoration

Floodwater in your home or business should be considered an emergency that requires immediate attention by a professional who is qualified to remove the water safely and properly. Floodwater that enters your home or business property from excess rainfall, overflowing creeks, and backed-up storm drains is unsafe because of the toxic contaminants it may contain.

Floodwater runs over streets, parking lots, driveways, and yards, and can pick up contaminants such as pesticides and fertilizers, gas and oil from cars and trucks, animal waste, and more. Flooding can also occur because of broken appliances, burst frozen pipes, and overflowing sinks and toilets, affecting not only the area where the breakdown occurs, but seeping through floors and ceilings, and being absorbed into walls and furnishings.

If this or any type of flooding has occurred in your residential or commercial property, the professionals at MHS Restoration can help.

We give you peace of mind with our proven process. Once onsite, trust that we use knowledgeable technicians, state-of-the-art equipment, and tested methods – all to give you the absolute best results.

  1. We take full safety precautions. Our technicians use hazard gear and shut down electrical power to the flooded area.
  2. We determine the source of flooding and take steps to prevent more water from entering.
  3. We inspect the home or commercial property both inside and out to see the extent of the flood damage.
  4. We categorize the water according based on the level of contaminants that may be present. Floodwater is assigned an IICRC rating—usually the worst, as floodwater is the most dangerous, due to potential biohazards that might be present.
  5. Using specialized equipment, we extract the water, ensuring it does not come into contact with anything else, and properly dispose of it.
  6. High-powered fans and heat panels are put in place to thoroughly dry the flooded area. Our process includes checking hard-to-reach places – behind walls, under floors – for residual moisture. If necessary, we place additional equipment for testing any remaining dampness and humidity.
  7. Dry areas receive a thorough decontamination and sanitization. Areas where mold could potentially grow are treated to prevent an infestation from occurring.
  8. With help from property owners, we check building contents to identify any items that can be salvaged. Unsalvageable items are removed and properly disposed of.
  9. We clean and sanitize all surfaces thoroughly—walls, floors, ceilings, fixtures—so you feel safe and comfortable when you return home or to your business.
  10. If necessary, we repair and renovate structural items that were damaged during the flood.

MHS Restoration is licensed, bonded, and insured. Our uniformed technicians arrive onsite in company vehicles and are fully trained and IICRC-certified in the services they perform. We work with your insurance company to facilitate the insurance claims process on your behalf, and strive to make sure you receive maximum benefit for the floodwater damage you incurred.
