Even though water damage is one of the most common forms of property damage, not all cases can be treated the same because the exact cause makes each situation unique.  Weather conditions such as heavy rains and flooding as well as internal issues including sewer backup, overflow, plumbing leaks, and burst pipes are all potential causes of water damage and require immediate action.  ServiceMaster by Rice provides water damage restoration in Des Moines, IA to clean up excess water and moisture and repair the resulting damage to your home and furnishings.  Our experienced staff will quickly assess and respond to your specific emergency.

ServiceMaster by Rice has been responding to water damage situations in the Des Moines area for over 40 years and our technicians have the training and experience to quickly provide a targeted response.  We use advanced drying equipment including dehumidifiers and air movers to remove water and moisture as well as detection equipment to find hidden sources of moisture.  We are dedicated to providing a solution as quickly as possible to prevent the water damage from spreading which could result in longer and costlier repairs.

ServiceMaster in Clive and Des Moines, IA - Water Damage Restoration

Our water damage restoration services include the following:

  • Location of the Source: The first step is to find the source of the water or moisture and treat it to prevent more water from causing damage. We then use our moisture detection meters and probes to assess the extent of the damage.
  • Evaluation of the Carpet: Depending on the extent of the damage, your carpet may be salvageable but if the water damage is too extensive, your carpet will need to be replaced. We can use our moisture detection equipment to determine the extent of the water damage to your carpet.
  • Evaluation of the Flooring: Hard surface flooring such as wood floors, vinyl, laminate, and tile react to water differently but they can all trap water or moisture in the sub-floor. We can detect the level of moisture in the sub-floor and dry all hard surface flooring types with our drying equipment.
  • Evaluation of Walls, Ceilings, and Cabinets: Sometimes excess water can affect hidden areas in walls, ceilings, and cabinet structures which will need to be removed in order to restore the damage. We can determine the extent of the damage in these areas before removing any of the walls, ceilings, or cabinet structures.
  • Structural Drying: After we repair the source of the moisture and make an assessment of what can be saved, we begin the drying process of the affected area. Through regular monitoring and moisture detection, we will ensure that the structural elements and furnishings in your home are thoroughly dried.

It can be very difficult to judge the extent of water damage because water can get absorbed into building materials and cause damage in hidden areas.  Make sure you contact ServiceMaster by Rice for water damage restoration services to remove excess water from homes and buildings in Des Moines, IA.  You can reach us 24 hours a day at (515) 212-2511 for emergency water damage restoration.

Everyone that came to our house to help us resolve our water issue due to a sump pump failure, were very kind, professional and helpful. They knew exactly how to resolve the situation and we felt very confident we were in good hands.

As of Monday it was a 10,as of today a 5. you have not quite finished what was told would be done. Our pool table was to be removed by you guys per Doug. Then once removed the remaining sub floor that it is on would be removed. This was to be done Tuesday 6/11. It is all still there as of this writing. Called Doug about this Tuesday morning and said would check with the Pool Table movers. Did he do this? Never once heard from any movers to arrange a time to be there. So makes me wonder if this would be completed if wasn’t writing this here. Steve [LAST NAME REMOVED]

Our sump pump failed right before Memorial Day Weekend 2019 and flooded our basement with about 1-2 inches of water. American Family Insurance recommended that we call Service Master and one other company. We called both immediately; the other company never, ever called back!!! While Service Master could not come out immediately, when they finally did come out to survey our damage, their employees were professional, polite, respectful and thorough. A Project Manager was on site and made sure that our entire basement was checked. They immediately got to work and within several hours, we had fans throughout the basement. Eventually, they removed all the wet padding and carpeting, cut out the affected dry wall and removed the damp insulation. Their employees got rid of all the wet material. It took about a week but they did a great job. I would recommend Service Master in a heart beat!
