Flooding within a home or building is a serious problem because of the damage it can cause and the possibility of mold growth and sewage. Weather conditions like heavy rain and natural floods are a major cause of indoor flooding, but flooding can also be caused by sewage backups, pipe bursts, overflows, and issues with plumbing or appliances. Finding standing water on your property is overwhelming, but it is important to act fast to help prevent the spread of the water which can lead to major structural damage and mold growth.

We can respond to any level of flooding and remove the standing water using advanced water extraction equipment. After the water is removed, we will thoroughly dry, clean, and restore the damaged areas.
You can count on our technicians to safely handle the removal of contaminated floodwater including sewage water.
Flood Damage Restoration in Leesburg, VA
Indoor flooding is an emergency that requires immediate attention. After a basement flood, water causes damage by getting absorbed in the surrounding building materials and furnishings.
As building materials like wood, drywall, and flooring absorb the floodwater, they can quickly become weakened and experience structural damage. The water can also spread through the affected materials, causing the damage to reach higher than the water level.
In addition to structural water damage, you also need to be concerned about the following issues when indoor flooding occurs:
- Contaminated water: When dealing with floodwater in your home, there is likely to be contaminants in the water that can threaten your health. Water that comes from the plumbing system may contain waste and other contaminants and water from natural floods may contain sewage. It is important to stay clear of the water as a precaution.
- Mold growth: Mold growth typically follows water damage because mold spores will only grow in areas that provide them with a source of moisture. Areas affected by flooding are especially at risk of mold growth.
