24/7 Water Damage Cleanup & Restoration in Northeast Florida

Water Damage Restoration For Your Home or Business

Water damage can have devastating impacts on your home or business. Whether due to storm damage, flooding, a plumbing problem, or a construction issue, water damage if not properly repaired can lead to cascading issues and escalating costs. At DriMaxx, we know. We’ve been helping residential and commercial clients with water removal, cleanup & restoration services in Jacksonville for over two decades. Our services include 24/7 emergency water removal, mold remediation and odor removal, and complete rebuild and recovery services.

Water damage can be deceptive. Water penetrates into structural cavities creating trapped pockets of saturation. The detection of water in such areas can often only be discovered with sophisticated moisture detection meters. Undetected moisture will continue to cause damage over time. At minimum this means odor, but greater damage follows when materials delaminate, shrink, split and further deteriorate or mold occurs, and more costly repairs are required.

More than just removing excess water, DriMaxx’s certified restorers have the knowledge and equipment to dry a residential or commercial property (including substructure materials) completely back to pre-loss conditions. Through timely response and the careful monitoring of water damage, mold and other health issues can be prevented. Our restoration professionals have the training and experience not only to assist in emergencies but to identify long-standing moisture issues, evaluate visible or suspected mold growth, contain the damage, remove the contamination, dry the materials, and/or when required, fully rebuild any part of a water damaged home or commercial business.

Commercial Water Damage Cleanup Professionals

DriMaxx provides complete water damage cleanup and restoration services for commercial businesses in Jacksonville. Standing water due to flood, plumbing, fire or disrepair can be costly for businesses in more ways than one. Not only does it physically degrade floors, walls and materials like carpet, tile, hardwood, drywall, caulking, and insulation, but it can also cause biological problems.

Insects such as mosquitos and cockroaches are attracted to standing water and unattended moisture can quickly result in the growth of mold and mildew. This is not only visually displeasing to clients and customers but can be a health concern for employees, for which business owners are responsible. Air quality can be negatively impacted, and if not resolved, can be harmful – even life threatening – for all.

If your building has experienced extensive water damage, we provide complete commercial rebuild and recovery services. As part of these services, we can evaluate your water damage, determine what is safely salvageable, and rebuild and repair some heavily damaged materials to help you avoid the costs of purchasing all new materials while increasing operational uptime! We can also help you build new, from the ground-up.

Water Damage Tips

Signs of Water Damage

Although visible water in a building is the most obvious sign of flood damage, there are many other indicators of water damage. Cracked foundations, rusted pipes, electrical shorts, mosquitoes, and peeling wood surfaces are potential signs of water damage. Mold or algae formation, a substantial increase in humidity, dampness, or stains in walls or ceilings are more definite signs that your property is suffering the effects of water damage.

If you suspect that your property might be experiencing water damage, time is of the essence as water and moisture that is left too long will cause mold to form. This can lead to serious health issues, as well as additional costs involved with cleaning up and killing the mold spores. Depending upon the source of the water, there may be other risks to health and property.

Sources of Water Damage and Its Potential Risks

A busted pipe or faucet that was not turned off during a trip away from home will lead to pools of relatively clean water. When this is the case, it is simply a matter of cleaning the water up in a thorough and timely manner before mold begins to set in. However, if the source of the water is from the outside, such as a storm that brings in water from nearby rivers or similar reservoirs, further contamination could be a problem. The risk of illness from being exposed to pathogens from bacteria from the ground, animal wastes, and rodents from rainwater renders the cleanup job even more serious. Furthermore, there are man-made chemicals that could seep into your property, such as fertilizers, oils, and pesticides, which could both cause damage and short- and long-term health problems.

Cautions to Take After Experiencing Water Damage

Regardless of the source of water damage and flood, DriMaxx wants to remind you to take caution when entering a property that has been affected. A call to a professional may be the first step to take before even returning to the affected commercial or residential building, depending on how extensive the damage is. After a storm, watch for downed power lines around the structure and shut-off power to the building you are ready to inspect. If there is a possibility of any person or animal inside the structure, try to either get them out yourself or call emergency personnel for assistance. Yours’ and everyone’s safety is the most important issue.
