Importance of Fast Flood Water Damage Clean-up in San Diego, CA
Our Flood Damage Process
Here is a summary of our basic procedures for remediating flood damage:
Standing Water Removal
In situations of leakage, the water source has been stopped or repaired, our extraction specialists start the process with instruments such as infrared cameras and moisture detectors which, in the first instance, find humidity within wall cavities.
In order to extract standing water and prevent further damage, including the proliferation of mildews and molds, professionals use two tools:
- An industrial water extractor
- A water claw
Our industrial truck mount unit is capable of extracting massive quantities of water within a short period of time and the water claw is designed to work quickly to remove water through carpets and pads in place.
Monitoring and Drying-Out Process
Our water extraction professionals use industrial air movers to remove moisture from the subsurface and other infrastructure. Speed dryers operate by air circulation. Industrial extra large dehumidifiers extract air humidity and regulate the humidity content. Desiccants are added to maximize the evaporation rate.
Water remediation is not complete until all visible and invisible humidity signs are eliminated. Instruments for tracking help to assess when the drying process is over. The control of the drying out time is important because swelling and tightening walls create the conditions for mold to flourish, if not deliberately done.
Deodorize and Sanitize
Water damage can produce odors in spaces and surfaces in no time. Foggers are used to remediate microbial growth by emitting a subtle nebula to attack odors and kill them before entering hard surfaces and inaccessible areas.
The sanitizing process is carried out using many methods of water removal. Every step is taken to ensure your home or business is completely sanitized, disinfected and dried out.
Two common sanitizing techniques are used:
- Hot water cleaning and disinfection
- CL02 fogging and deodorization
- Benefit organic antimicrobial application

Water Mitigation FAQs
How long will it take my property to dry after flooding or other water damage?
Drying time after water damage in your home is determined by a combination of factors. Among these are the location, duration, and source of water; building materials in your home; weather conditions; and the speed at which emergency restoration services are provided. In order to determine when the drying process is complete, our trained technicians constantly monitor and evaluate the drying process. Depending on where your carpet is located, it may seem dry to the touch, but beneath the surface, it may still be wet.
My wood floors are wet and buckling. Will they have to be replaced?
During the drying process, any wood flooring that has been damaged by water in your home must be continually evaluated by qualified technicians. We use professional-grade drying systems and dehumidifiers to ensure wood floors dry effectively, and in order to restore their original shape. Complete drying may take up to three weeks, depending on the density of hardwood flooring and the type of finish used. As part of the claims process, the insurance adjuster will help you decide whether to refinish or replace the floors in your home.
What is the definition of a flood under a flood insurance policy?
A flood is an excess of water on land that is normally dry, affecting two or more acres of land or two or more properties. If flooding caused the sewer backup, such damage is covered. If the sewer backup is not caused directly by flooding, the damage is not covered.
