Torrential rains, a storm, or a broken dam can strike suddenly and when they do, they can cause lakes and rivers to overflow into surrounding homes and offices.

We serve all of the Orange County area, including beach cities such as Aliso Viejo, Laguna Beach, Dana Point and San Clemente.
When looking for flood damage repair specialists, keep these things in mind:
- A#1 Emergency Service is Cleantrust certified. This means that our company has taken several classes and been approved by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification. The IICRC sets the standards for proper methodologies within the carpet cleaning and restoration industry. It took A#1 Emergency Service several years to earn this symbol of excellence and as such, we take pride in it and all of our work.
- Flood damage repair is more complex than it appears, but A#1 Emergency Service is prepared to fix the damage. It might seem like discarding wet fabric and furniture is enough to mitigate any damage, but unfortunately, it isn’t. (Though we’d like to add that it is a good first step!). A#1 Emergency Service technicians have access to high-tech tools that allow us to detect dangerous levels of moisture that might not be visible to the naked eye. With these tools we can also confirm the presence of microbial agents in the wall or floor and hotspots for mold.
- The only way to save any of your belongings is to act quickly. Call A#1 Emergency Service right away! Mold begins to grow between 48 -72 hours after materials are soaked, and once it starts, stopping it is difficult at best. Anything that is porous and/or retains water will likely require disposal, including carpet, mattresses, and drywall. To contact and remove areas of saturation, walls and flooring must be taken apart and aggressively treated with pressure washing and a special detergent. Most homeowners find that doing this themselves is nearly impossible. That’s why we are here to help you at A#1 Emergency Service.
- Mold must be treated in all areas of saturation, and A#1 Emergency Service knows this. Once all materials have sufficiently dried and the flood damage repair is done, our technicians will make sure that your home is free of any molds or mildew.
If left to sit for even just a few days, water will cause major problems for the materials found in carpet, fabric, drywall, and furniture. Wood that has begun to decay will split, crack, or crumble, weakening the structure of the building. Fabric, carpet, and upholstery will grow toxic or deadly molds and unpleasant odors will linger for weeks or even months.
Though homeowners might be able to stall some of these catastrophes, calling out a team of reliable and capable professionals will greatly reduce the risk of severe permanent damage. Whether you live in Aliso Viejo, Laguna Beach, Dana Point, or San Clemente, A#1 Emergency Service is your go-to flood damage repair specialist.
