Q: What should I do if my house or business gets flooded?

A: Call Speed-Dry for immediate service 24 hours a day 365 days a year. One, two, or a crew of water damage technicians can be dispatched immediately. We will show up with trucks, machines, and man-power ready to handle the problem. We will also assess your damage and advise you whether it’s worth it to file a claim with your insurance.

Q: How much will it cost?

A: Depending on the size and extent of the water damage, the price could run from $105 for something small thru several thousand dollars for extensive water damage. Speed-Dry bills your insurance so you don’t have to pay out of pocket.

Q: What will Speed-Dry do?

A: First, we will extract and remove water. If necessary, we will remove wet carpet, pad, flooring, baseboards, cabinets, insulation, sheetrock, etc. We will set up drying machines and dehumidifiers to quickly dry your structure so mold and microbial growth is minimized and prevented. We will take care of your home, business, and property as if it were our own.

Q: Why should I use a professional water damage company like Speed-Dry?

A: Because the cleanup and drying job must be done quickly with no mistakes. Because water absorbs into places you can’t see or reach. Also, when sheetrock or structural framing has moisture in it, you can’t feel the moisture by touching it with your hand. Water can absorb 1’ – 2’ feet high in sheetrock in a very short time even if the water was only on the floor. It’s important that trained water damage technicians using moisture detecting instruments and powerful drying equipment completely dry out the structure. To prevent costly secondary damage from mold and a potential health hazard, a wet home or building must be dried properly and completely before the mold starts to grow.

Q: What if I have unsanitary water flooding, sewer water flooding, or the water has been sitting for a few days?

A: The best move is to have Speed-Dry remove the wet flooring, sheetrock, cabinets, insulation, and other affected materials as soon as possible. Then have Speed-Dry disinfect the structure. When it’s obvious that there is no salvage, its better to keep a bad situation from getting worse. First, for the sake of yours and your family’s health or for the health of the building occupants. Second, to prevent the problem from absorbing deeper and causing more secondary damage.

Q: If mold is already growing, what should I do?

A: Have Speed-Dry safely remove the moldy materials, disinfect, and remediate the structure. Mold can cause sickness. Stay away from it without a proper respirator and personal protective equipment. If one area of a house or building has mold, it can spread spores to the rest of the house or building. It could be hazardous to your health just to be inside the house or building for a short time. Have Speed Dry check it out as soon as possible. We are 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year.

Q: If it’s necessary to remove carpet, flooring, cabinets, walls, etc., what do I do after the remediation?

A: Speed-Dry is a carpet & flooring dealer & installer, a custom cabinet dealer & installer, and we do interior restoration. We can bill your insurance company direct and restore your property.
