Lake Tahoe Emergency Water Mitigation & Drying
For a small water loss, a general contractor, carpet cleaning service, or handyman may be fully capable. When dealing with larger losses, it is wise to employ a specialized water mitigation contractor in Lake Tahoe who has the equipment and training to get the job done right the first time.
Time is of the essence! Mold can start to propagate within 24-48 hours of the first signs of water. Getting the water stopped and extracted effectively and quickly is imperative to preventing additional damage. You should never wait for the insurance company to preserve your property. It is your responsibility.
Once you discover a problem, call us immediately! With our years of experience and education we have developed systems to make sure your project and claims handling go as smooth as possible. We provide risk-free consultations to assess the extent of damage and provide an objective work scope. We feel it is important to educate our customers about the mitigation and claims process, and help eliminate confusion and costly mistakes. Getting started is easy.
When you decide to proceed, you will:
- Sign our standard water mitigation work authorization.
- File an insurance claim with your insurer. This is done by contacting your agent, calling the phone number on your bill, or most insurers have phone numbers online.
- Provide payment in the amount of your deductible.
In most cases we will wait until your insurer pays you before expecting to get paid. By using the same estimating software as the insurance companies, we get our customers paid quicker for their projects. This typically speeds up the entire claims process including payments for reconstruction, lost rent, loss of use, and replacement of personal property.
Throughout the process you can expect extensive pictures, readings, inventories, and daily job notes to be regularly updated on our cloud server. You and your insurer are provided a link to important documents.
Our crew is selected to be trustworthy, and is extensively trained in the most up-to-date practices and provide excellent customer service. All job supervisors are IICRC certified.
Our on-call staff is ready to respond to your after-hours emergency. Our call center is open 24 hours a day and seven days a week. We can typically be at your home within 2 hours of your call. We have an extensive supply of drying equipment including desiccant and refrigerant LGR dehumidifiers, wood floor drying systems, and cavity injection drying. Our water extraction techniques can significantly reduce drying times and required demolition.
