Water damage restoration is a specialized service which removes water from your home and restores it to a livable, pre-damaged condition. Save The Day Restoration is certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the non-profit certifying body for the cleaning and restoration industry.
Most policies help cover water damage if the cause is sudden and accidental, but you should check with your insurance provider to review the details of your particular policy.
The cost of water damage restoration varies depending on the cause and extent of damage. If you wait too long to address the issue, the cost of repairing water damage can increase significantly.
Yes, water damage due to flooding, plumbing, roof leaks, overflows, or sewage backup can cause mold to form in your home within 24-48 hours of exposure. Mold damage can cause serious health and structural problems if they are not dealt with immediately.
Water damage mitigation prevents further water damage from affecting your property and belongings.

Frequently Asked Questions For Fire Damage
Most policies include coverages which may help pay to repair or replace your home and its contents if they are damaged by fire. Speak with your insurance representative for details on your specific policy.
Some of the most effective prevention methods include; being attentive to potential fire sources, investing in fire extinguishers, upgrading your water heater, updating your fire alarms, and installing an indoor sprinkler system.
Do not enter the building until you are given clearance that the structure is safe! Get a fire report copy, secure your property, and keep your important documents. Then call Save the Day Restoration to assess the damage and initiate the cleanup and restoration processes.
The restoration costs vary significantly depending on the severity of the fire and the extent of the damage. Save the Day Restoration’s team of experts can help to assess the extent of the fire damage and give you an estimate based on your individual case.
Fire damage restoration can be broken down into 5 steps:
Step 1 – Emergency call for the fire department to extinguish the fire
Step 2 – Assessment from an experienced, certified damage restoration company
Step 3 – Tarp and sealing services to ensure the safety of your neighbors and protect the structure from further damage
Step 4 – Clean up of unsalvageable materials, ash, and water remaining from extinguishing the fire
Step 5 – Repair and renovation process to restore your home or business to pre-damage conditions
The only time your insurance won’t cover a fire is if you, or anybody on your policy, caused the fire on purpose. This would be considered by your provider as negligence and is never covered by insurance policies.
Determining who’s liable for a fire can be difficult. A report from your fire department will likely determine the source of the fire, and based on that information, an attorney experienced in fire litigation can assist with investigating the causes and determining the responsible parties.
Frequently Asked Questions For Mold Remediation
Mold remediation may include cleaning, removal, demolition, sanitization, or treatment of the mold-contaminated area depending on its extent. The mold remediation plan should be drawn up and carried out by experienced professionals like the experts at Save the Day Restoration.
For most standard policies, mold remediation is only covered when the mold results from something that is already covered in your policy, such as water damage. However, you must speak to your insurance provider about your specific policy to be certain about the extent of your coverage.
As a general guideline, a patch of mold will require professional remediation if it measures more than 3 feet by 3 feet. However, mold is a tricky culprit that spreads quickly and is difficult to exterminate on your own without the proper experience and equipment. The best way to ensure that your home or business is mold-free is to call in a professional mold remediation company like Save the Day Restoration.
The cost of mold remediation varies greatly depending on the extent of damage. Contact Save the Day Restoration at (562) 246-9908 or on our website at https://savethedayrestoration.com/contact/ so we can fully assess the issue and give you an accurate estimate.
Most cases of mold remediation take between one and five days. However, this is entirely dependent on the cause and extent of the mold. Once we are able to come in and get a full assessment of the problem, we can provide a more accurate timeframe for mold remediation based on your individual circumstances.
The mold remediation can be understood by breaking it down into four general steps:
Step 1 – Containment of the mold to prevent further spreading and ventilation to remove moisture from the area
Step 2 – Cleaning and disinfection of the impacted and surrounding areas
Step 3 – Fixing the mold source, typically by replacing the affected surfaces
Step 4 – Encapsulating the mold to prevent exposure and ensure safe removal
Absolutely. After removing the mold, our team at Save the Day Restoration will address the initial cause(s) and help you to take preventive measures that will keep it from returning.
That depends on the extent of the mold, but generally the answer is yes. Mold is very difficult to eradicate without the proper training and tools. The potential long-term threats to your health and the structure of your home justify the cost of calling in professionals to address the problem immediately.
You should seriously consider calling in a remediation specialist when your home has sustained water damage, when you can smell mold, when mold is visible to the naked eye and when humidity levels are particularly high. However, if you even suspect mold growing in your home or business, it would be wise to contact a professional to preserve your health and peace of mind. Mold spreads quickly and you want to tackle the issue before it gets any worse.
To prepare for mold remediation, you will want to isolate the affected area, avoid extra ventilation, and leave it to the professionals at Save the Day Restoration to handle the rest.
Mold can be caused by too much moisture in the atmosphere for a sustained period of time. It does not necessarily come from flooding or extensive water damage, though this is a common cause. Generally, the more an area is exposed to water or excessive moisture, the greater chance for mold to develop and spread
