3 Reasons to Call a Professional After a Flood


When your home or business is affected by a flood, it’s tempting to think that you can save time and money by cleaning up on your own. On the contrary – it may cost you more if you don’t hire professional help for the cleanup. These are the three main reasons to call professionals like Cleaning and Restoration Specialists for help after a flood.


Though you know to use mops, shop vacs, and fans when cleaning up water, you may make beginner mistakes that can cost you big time. A professional knows which mistakes to avoid. You can actually save money with a professional since they know exactly what to do and what not to do.

For example, homeowners typically get to work without shutting off power or water mains. This can cause further problems and potentially life-threatening situations. In the stress after a flood, you could overlook a simple step like this, which can lead to an expensive overhaul.

You can rely on professional help like the kind you receive from Cleaning and Restoration Specialists. We will cover all the bases in flood restoration. You may not know every area to cover, but we do. If you call us within 24 hours of noticing the problem, we can get to work on restoring your property.


No matter how good of a job you do on your own to remove water, you may not remove enough to stop the growth of mold and mildew. When you fail to treat the water that gets into unseen surfaces, such as floorboards or walls, you run the risk of mold and mildew growth. This can cause health problems for certain individuals and can be expensive to remove if left untreated.

Mold and mildew grow quickly in wet, warm conditions. It’s essential for you to call for professional help as soon as possible to stop the spread of these potentially toxic organisms. When water damage is too big for you to manage, you must call a professional to protect your health.

Our specialists are trained in mold and mildew remediation. We know exactly which equipment and techniques work best to remove the problem. We will test your home for signs of mold and mildew, then get started on the remediation process. Mold and mildew remediation is best left to the professionals at Cleaning and Restoration Specialists.


You may think that a do-it-yourself cleanup job is the cheapest way to go. However, you can save yourself hours of time and potentially tens of thousands of dollars by hiring professional help. We have the best methods and equipment to remove water to protect your home or business from further damage.

When cleaning up after a flood, we use sophisticated testing to assess where the water has seeped into your floors, walls and other surfaces. We start by removing water from hidden areas. These professional measures can prevent the need for a total remodel, which can cost many thousands of dollars.

To save your floor joists, insulation, carpets, drywall, and flooring, it’s best to leave the job to the professionals at Cleaning and Restoration Specialists.
