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.

While we always do our best with our water removal and drying processes to salvage and save important parts of your home, once water damage is done, it can be hard to restore it to 100%.

We recently had some plumbing-related water damage in one of our bathrooms and we called Drimaxx to take a look. They showed up in 30 minutes, assessed the situation and tested for mold. 24 hours later, their crew was here and preparing the job site. Our house is now mold-free and we couldn't be happier with the service Drimaxx provided. The crew was extremely courteous, professional and flexible with us (and our two young children). Unlike some other companies we've hired in the past, they were GREAT about communicating with us and always set clear expectations with us regarding start times and other impactful information. Would 100% recommend Drimaxx to anyone.

DriMaxx did a exceptional job requiring many visits to my home. Shane was very proficient in what he doing in my home. He was kind, always on time and kept me informed of what was done or needed to be done. Would highly recommend this company.

We were referred to DriMaxx by our plumber to mitigate the water damage caused by a leak from our dishwasher that had gone undetected for several months. DriMaxx responded quickly, and after a delay due to a slow response from our homeowners’ insurance company, removed the damaged drywall, baseboards, and cabinets. DriMaxx was thorough with their work and complied with all regulatory requirements regarding mold testing and mitigation. DriMaxx even worked directly with our insurance company and did not push us for payment at any time. I would strongly recommend DriMaxx for water damage mitigation.

We employed DriMaxx to complete the water mitigation process for our home. The damage was originally done in March 2020 right at the time COVID-19 came upon the scene. DriMaxx immediately came out, completed the water mitigation, treated any signs of what was thought to be mold, and begin to prepare us for the rebuild process. We hit a bump in the road with the homeowners insurance coverage for which I will not give details, but I will say DriMaxx provided us with a great referral and the issue has finally been resolved in our favor. Our experience with DriMaxx has been very pleasant primarily because of their absolutely wonderful Administrative Assistant who's name I will not call since this is a public site, but they know who she is. She has been very kind, attentive, professional, and responsive to all of our needs until this process was seen through the end. She never hesitated to provide any and all information we requested, with no delays. She has exemplified stellar customer service throughout this entire encounter and it has made working with DriMaxx something that I would consider again in the future if necessary. She is truly an asset to DriMaxx and is to be commended for all of her efforts and hard work.

They were over right away to look and take care of our issues we were having with a water damage claim. They were very accommodating to our time schedule and worked around when we would be home and followed up frequently. They showed excellent customer service and were very friendly and informative and helped us navigate our home insurance who was taking a little longer than expected

My upstairs 3rd floor tub valve exploded & of course we were out of town. After calling around DriMaxx was ready to help us within 15 minutes with all the equipment my home needed. Robert checked everything out for us and realized the damage had been sitting for 48 hours. Our insurance company tried to minimize the need for mold testing, even though I have small children. I’m so happy Robert knew how to handle my claim and demand my insurance company to test for mold & quickly remove the damaged baseboards, drywall and ceilings. This was devastating that my insurance company tried to minimize the damage especially since the mold testing proved the need for removal. This was our first claim and it would’ve been a horrific experience if not for Robert, Noah and the rest of the DriMaxx team! Thank you again for all your help!

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.
