Water cleanup can refer to any kind of clean up after water enters, but Flood Water Clean Up is one that can be particularly difficult, once flood waters have receded, you should only call on the help of a professional disaster recovery specialist like Maxx Restoration. Flood water presents many dangers that are not as common following an internal household leak or flood. For instance, flood waters can be highly contaminated and increase the risk of MOLD . For every hour that goes by where there is a delay to the water damage repair services, the problem worsens and begins to rapidly deteriorate. However, no matter how severe a flood may seem, Maxx Restoration water cleanup can achieve amazing results that contribute to saving personal property, business assets and much more.
Water intrusion into buildings can be incredibly destructive. Over time, excess moisture can cause issues within an indoor environment. Without proper water extraction and professional drying, long-term effects can take hold of a home or building and cause long-lasting structural damage as well as pose numerous health risks especially with the possible growth of MOLD. Any type of water damage should be taken seriously, and proper water damage repair is a key part of recovery should your home or business be affected. Acting within the first 24-48 hours will help to minimize the potential short and long-term effects of water damage.
Whether it’s a plumbing pipe burst, flood damage, or any other number of potential causes, your water damage needs a speedy and effective water damage mitigation. Water mitigation is about much more than just drying and cleaning a property. There are many other factors to consider, like decontamination and treating porous materials (e.g. carpet or drywall) that can hold water. If left damp or untreated, bacteria and or MOLD can potentially thrive and cause future problems, Mold Restoration is a much more complex and costly service than just a dry out. Maxx Restoration knows the importance of a quick response and the successful implementation of a water damage repair plan. Our water damage restoration process will evaluate three criteria to determine the best course of action: Amount of property damage Degree of contamination Replacement costs vs restoration costs The time it takes to fully complete water restoration can vary based on several different factors.
The backup of sewer lines can cause significant water damage to your home. That backup also lets off physical contaminants and airborne ones that can be hazardous to your health.

Our trained staff knows handling a sewer clean will require proper PPE, as well as proper methods of restoring your home and the components that are affected by a sewer backup. Whether it is a flooded basement, or your office drain backed up Maxx Restoration has the experts trained to restore it back to its original condition.
Should you encounter a sewage backup the CDC recommends at a minimum
anyone handling human waste or sewage, their PPE should generally include the following:
The winter months bring colder weather, and an increased chance of a costly problem - burst pipes. When temperatures drop below freezing, water as it freezes it expands. It can exert enough pressure to rupture the wall of a pipe or break apart a pipe joint. Whether made of PVC, plastic, iron, lead, or copper, pipes of any material can burst.
Maxx Restoration has the experience you need if you find yourself in one of these messy situations. We are a restoration company with over 25 years of experience. We are experts in our industry and have seen just about everything. When you find yourself in need of burst or leaking water clean-up, don’t hesitate to give our team a call.
Whether you have homeowners or renters insurance, it’s important to understand what your insurance does, and does not cover. Oftentimes there’s a fine line dividing the two. The big difference between homeowners and renters insurance, is that homeowners insurance covers the actual building you live in (and associated structures such as garages). Where renter's insurance, the owner will be expected to have coverage on the building, while your insurance will cover your personal property. One of the most common, and costly, types of insurance claims by homeowners, is water damage. This includes damage caused by hard freezes. However, generally, water damage that is considered deferred maintenance like a leaking bathroom sink, isn’t covered, but water damage that is considered “sudden and accidental” is covered (like a burst pipe).
Flood Damage. Most notably, damage from floods is not covered by home insurance policy. Flood water includes hurricanes, tsunamis, storm surges, water from overflowing rivers, and water due to heavy rain. If you want coverage for these problems, you should look into getting flood insurance.
Gradual Water Damage. Homeowners insurance typically does not cover water damage that occurs gradually over time due to maintenance issues, wear and tear, or lack of proper repairs. Examples include long-term leaks, seepage, or recurring plumbing problems that could have been addressed through regular maintenance.
Water Damage From Intentional Acts. Insurance policies are designed to provide coverage for unforeseen events and accidents, rather than intentional damage caused by the policyholder or other individuals. Intentional acts that may lead to water damage include acts of vandalism, malicious mischief, or deliberate actions such as setting a fire to your home or purposely turning off the heat during the winter.
Water Damage From “Earth Movement" like an earthquake, landslide, or mudslide. For example, if your pipe bursts because of an earthquake, the water damage most likely won’t be covered. If you want coverage for earthquake damage, you’ll need to buy a separate policy specifically for earthquake insurance.
Sewer Backup. Standard homeowners insurance policies usually do not cover damage caused by sewer backups or sump pump failures. (However, separate endorsements or riders may be available to add coverage for these specific situations.)
Water damage from leaks in a swimming pool or other outdoor water structures is generally not covered by standard homeowners insurance policies. Insurance providers typically consider swimming pools, hot tubs, and similar outdoor water features as separate entities that require specialized coverage. Therefore, any damage resulting from leaks or malfunctions in these structures may not be included in the standard policy.
Water damage from seepage or leaks through a foundation is a common concern for homeowners. However, it's important to note that standard homeowners insurance policies typically do not cover this type of water damage. Water damage resulting from foundation issues is often considered a maintenance issue rather than a sudden and accidental event..
The Cost To Repair Or Replace The Source Of The Water Damage like fixing a broken dishwasher or washing machine.
Water damage from a sump pump failure or related equipment can be a significant concern for homeowners, especially for those with basements or low-lying areas prone to water accumulation. Standard homeowners insurance policies typically do not cover this type of water damage, as it is often considered a maintenance issue. (However, homeowners have the option to obtain additional coverage known as sump and water backup coverage.)
Sudden or Accidental Water Discharge, Burst Pipes. Accidental Leaks. Such as leaking appliances or a broken washing machine/dishwasher.
Water Damage After A Fire. From the water used to extinguish the flames, such as water from a sprinkler system or a hose from the fire department.
Water Damage From A Roof Leak. Such as damage from a storm or a tree that falls on your roof. Keep in mind, that if an accident (like a fallen tree) damages your roof, you’ll be required to fix the damage in a reasonable amount of time. Failure to do so could result in further water damage that won’t be covered.
Water Damage From Storms. Typically covers water damage caused by storms, such as heavy rainfall, hail, or wind-driven rain that enters your home through openings like broken windows or damaged roofs.
Ice Dams. Ice that builds up in your gutter and damages your home, may be covered as long as the damage was sudden and wasn’t caused by a lack of maintenance.
