Our professionals are also trained to identify different types of water damage, as well as identify exactly where the home/business is damaged. Start by shutting off the water source. Call 573-443-8383, and move any furniture or items that you can out of the affected area, and begin taking pictures of the damage for your insurance company.

The water removal and drying process helps to minimize overall damage. If left standing, water causes irreparable damage to hardwood floors, will loosen vinyl, and can cause carpets to mold or delaminate. If the water is left sitting without action, it may absorb into the ceilings, walls and items throughout the structure, causing secondary damage and increasing cleanup or drying costs in the long run. It is always best to hire a professional like ServiceMaster of Columbia to clean up the flood damage the right way.
It is our goal to restore your property as quickly and efficiently as possible. The drying and restoration may require up to three phases before completion.
If applicable, after the drying process is complete, structural damage is assessed and the repair phase can begin. Now, drywall, ceilings and floors will be repaired. If carpet or other flooring cannot be salvaged, new carpeting, padding, flooring and possibly sub-flooring will be installed.
