Frequently asked questions


To check for water damage, you should conduct a walk-through inspection of your home on a monthly basis. The main telltale sign of water damage are water stains on the floor, walls or ceiling. Other reasons to arouse suspicion include mold growth, musty odors and higher-than-normal utility bills. 

If you think you might have water damage, touch the area with your fingers. If the spot feels damp or spongy, you might be right. If you suspect water damage in your home, be sure to take immediate action right away. Give us a call for a free inspection so we can proceed with our water damage restoration process and help you avoid further damage to your property and your belongings and prevent mold growth.

Aside from natural disasters such as tornadoes, hurricanes or floods, water damage can be caused by leaks or issues with plumbing fixtures, especially if they’re outdated. How long it will take for the damage to show depends on the source of the problem. A roof leak might take weeks to cause visible damage, whereas a pipe leak will be visible right away. 

The main problem with detecting water damage by yourself is that not all water-related issues can be easily noticeable, yet they are certain to have a detrimental effect if unaddressed. If you are in doubt or simply want to have your peace of mind back, give us a call for a free consultation and inspection.

How long after water damage does mold grow?

The problem with mold is that it can easily get out of hand in a humid environment and at the right temperature. Depending on the surface, mold can spread throughout the property in as little as 48 to 72 hours. Give us a call at the first sign of mold, before a comprehensive mold remediation service becomes your only resort.


If you notice signs of mold, you might need mold remediation. Signs of mold and reasons to suspect mold infestation may include:

  • Mold growth,
  • Mold odor,
  • Water problems (water stains, discoloration, surface abnormalities)
  • Water leaks, 
  • Condensation,
  • Recent flooding.

Some of these signs are visible, some are not. If in doubt, give us a call for an inspection of your San Diego commercial or residential property.

After we perform a thorough inspection of your property and detect the areas where mold is present, we will develop a mold remediation plan and then proceed with the mold remediation and damage restoration process.

What are the steps of mold remediation?

Our mold remediation process includes the following steps:

  • Assessment: this detailed examination process will help us determine the extent of the damage,
  • Identification: we will identify the type of mold, the cause of the problem and the source of excess moisture,
  • Cleaning: we will find the most effective method to clean and remove mold,
  • Restoration: the last step is to repair the damage in your San Diego property and restore the affected area to its former state.


The most common plumbing emergencies include clogged drains, blocked toilets, damaged pipes and plumbing fixtures, any of which can result in leaks, including slab leaks, as well as sewage issues. These problems could also indicate the presence of bigger underlying problems. Reasons to get suspicious include:

  • Water pooling on the floor,
  • Puddles outside of the property,
  • Odds sounds of running water when no fixtures are in use,
  • Low water pressure,
  • Higher than normal utility bills,
  • Hot floors,
  • Damage such as cracks on the floor.

We offer 24 hour plumbing service and cover all types of plumbing emergencies. This includes slab leak detection, leak detection and repair, sewage repair and sewage removal services

Major flooding all over your floor is a textbook example of a plumbing emergency. But you should be on the lookout for seemingly less dramatic symptoms of a plumbing emergency, such as:

  • Leaking or burst pipe,
  • Blocked sewer line, 
  • No hot water,
  • No water supply,
  • Clogged sink,
  • Overflowing toilet.

If you notice that anything is wrong with your plumbing, do not hesitate to give us a call. The longer you wait, the worse it can get. We will act fast to determine whether you may have a more serious problem on your hands and whether you require a leak detection and repair service. Our emergency plumbing service is at your disposal round the clock.

Fire damage

Even if it resulted in minor property damage, the effect of fire is both traumatic and devastating. What matters is that everyone is safe and that you take swift action toward fire damage restoration

Fire damage restoration is the process of cleaning your home or commercial property and any personal belongings and other items that were damaged by the fire, soot and smoke. Along with fire damage, your property may also have sustained water damage, which is why following a proper post-fire cleaning and care procedure is absolutely necessary. A promptly delivered fire damage restoration service can also minimize the detrimental consequences of the fire, smoke and soot to your health. 

Call our experienced team of professionals as soon as possible so we can get to work right away. We will try and salvage the damaged items and restore the safety and pre-fire state of your property.

We follow a step-by-step process when performing fire restoration:

  • Inspection: we will determine the extent of damage caused by the fire, smoke, soot and water and help you decide if certain elements of your home need to be removed or replaced. 
  • Fire residue removal: the lingering effect of smoke and soot residue could be detrimental to your health and present a health hazard down the line, which is why we will clean and disinfect the affected areas with due diligence.
  • Neutralizing the odor: we will use one or several methods to remove the unpleasant and potentially dangerous odors as we go.
  • Water removal and damage restoration: if your property was also exposed to water damage, we will proceed with the water extraction, drying and dehumidifying process.

When dealing with the aftermath of a fire, mold or water damage, you want to have an expert team immediately available to provide a rapid response on your speed dial and on your side. Our technicians, who are highly trained and IIRC-certified industry veterans, rely on cutting-edge tools and equipment: industrial-grade HEPA filters, fans, dehumidifiers and moisture meters. 

For San Diego community’s added protection and peace of mind, we are also fully insured. Following your inspection, which we provide free-of-charge except for attic and crawl space inspections, we will give you an honest recommendation. We value integrity above all else, which is why we will give you time to decide if we are the right damage restoration company for you. Schedule your appointment right away and let us show you the risk-free way!
