    Flood Clean Up

    Flood Damage Restoration and Clean Up in Ogden and Surrounding Areas

    Damage caused by a flood or other water event can be a true headache—or worse. When you are faced with water damage to floors, walls, pipes, and furnishings, don’t wait to call The Disaster Company. We have decades of experience in evaluating water damage, dealing with insurers, creating a remediation plan, and accomplishing flood clean up quickly and effectively to avoid further damage to your home, office, and belongings. Trust The Disaster Company in the aftermath of a flood or other event, large or small, that causes water damage to your home or place of business. 

    There are many potential sources of water damage, and until it happens to you, you’ve probably never considered most of them. Of course, Utah residents are familiar with flooding due to runoff as we transition from winter to the warmer months, and due to our unique geography, groundwater can seep into basements and put pressure on foundations. 

    Time is of the essence when it comes to stopping water damage in its tracks. Mere hours or days can accelerate damage at a surprising rate. If you have been affected by a flood or other acute water damage scenario, call us immediately at 801-741-0000 for flood clean up and flood restoration. Our knowledgeable experts proudly serve Ogden as well as areas throughout Southwestern Wyoming and Northern Utah. Our friendly, professional service includes damage assessment, coordination with your insurer, clean up and remediation, and outside contractor management. Do not leave your flood clean up to chance! The Disaster Company is the area’s most experienced provider of flood remediation services. 

    Water Damage Considerations 

    Flood waters that enter through cracks in the foundation or other routes of ingress may also bring in pests such as snakes and insects. You may require an exterminator in the aftermath of the flood cleanup. 

    Do not use a household vacuum for water removal after a flood! Using any electronics when there is standing water in your home may cause an electrocution or explosion hazard. There may also be gas leaks that have resulted from the precipitating event. 

    Stay out of rooms where ceilings or floors may be sagging. Likewise, do not walk on floors where the ceiling in the room below is sagging. Wet material can be extremely heavy and can collapse without warning. Always follow our instructions regarding when you can re-enter your home. 

    Contaminated tap water may not be safe to shower in or even to touch. You should not even use tap water for cleaning purposes until it has been tested and declared safe. If your home or business uses well water, it has likely been impacted by the flood and can take time to be restored to levels that are safe to drink and bathe in.

    You should not walk or drive through flood waters. If your vehicle has survived the initial water event, being caught in flood waters can destroy it. 

    Flood waters can release hazardous chemicals that were stored in your garage or basement. Do not attempt to clean these up yourself. Our trained experts at The Disaster Company know how to deal with these hazardous substances and remove them from floors and walls so that the affected areas can be safely used again.

    Your Checklist After a Flood or Water Emergency

    • Ensure that it is safe to enter the property before attempting to retrieve any of your possessions or assessing the damage.
    • To avoid electrocution or damage to the electrical systems of your house, an electrician or other knowledgeable person should flip the switch on the fuse box to cut the electricity during the rehabilitation process.
    • If the premises is unsafe, relocate family and pets. If you don’t have a friend or neighbor who can house you temporarily, call a local disaster relief organization. You may need to stay away for days or even weeks while the water is removed and the restoration is completed.
    • Call The Disaster Company to help evaluate the damage, create a plan of action, and deal with your insurer.
    • Clarify with your insurer what their process will be going forward. Do they need to send an adjuster to the property to assess the damage before you begin remediation?
    • Take photos and videos of the damage. This may be important in the future for your insurance claim, and it will help you to decide which items you wish to replace immediately, even before you are compensated by your insurance company.
    • If you have determined it is safe to enter the property, you may wish to begin removing water using buckets, a shopvac, and mops.
    • Keep a piece of any flooring or carpet that is damaged.
    • Protect furniture that may be sitting on wet carpet by raising it onto wood blocks or placing aluminum foil under the furniture legs
    • Contact your local water authority to ensure that your tap water is safe to drink and bathe in. 
    • Let the experts at The Disaster Company do the job we have been trained to do—when in doubt, leave it to us!

    Flooding can be caused by both natural and man-made sources. Utah residents are, of course, pretty familiar with the former due to the major runoff experienced as we transition from a cold winter to a warm spring. However, manmade sources such as busted pipes can be just as detrimental and difficult to contain and are pretty common in Utah during the cooler months. Prevention is of course the best method for dealing with flood seasons, but if you’ve found yourself in the middle of a flood at your home or business and need a little help out, you’ve come to the right place.

    Whether you’re dealing with a simple leak or a full-fledged flood, our clean up team will provide a fast response to your call to ensure the best end result possible. Our team members are courteous and strive to insure that your cleanup is done with the highest level of customer satisfaction.

    Flood Restoration and Clean Up FAQs

    How long until we can return to our home?

    That will, of course, depend on the extent of the damage. If no structural damage has occurred, we should be able to complete moisture removal using air dryers and dehumidifiers within 5 days. During that time, we will also repair damage to furnishings, documents, clothing, and 

    carpets and flooring where possible. We will also coordinate with any plumbers and electricians that may be necessary to repair damaged systems. 

    Can standing water be removed with a dehumidifier? 

    No, you will likely require physical extraction of standing water; dehumidifiers work mainly to remove moisture from the air and will not be adequate to remove pools of accumulated water. 

    Can walls that have been damaged by water be saved?

    That depends. Some water damage to walls can be dried out using air movers and dehumidifiers. We may be able to correct the damage by drilling holes in the drywall and removing moisture from inside the wall cavity. If mold has reached the drywall, however, it very well may need to be replaced.

    Can our floors be remediated after flood damage? 

    Some floors can be saved. Floors made of real wood may be able to be dried out as can carpets and the padding beneath them if the water absorption is not too extensive. Laminate and vinyl flooring often need to be completely replaced. 

    Can we live in our home after a flood?

    That depends. Water damage can affect multiple systems of your home, including the sewer, electricity, and tap water. Rapid mold growth can create a respiratory hazard. Our professionals at The Disaster Company will be able to advise you regarding whether your home will be habitable following flood clean up and restoration.  

    Will my insurance company pay to restore the areas damaged by flood or other water events?

    We will coordinate with your insurance company to determine their level of coverage. If you live in a flood plain, you are required to have flood insurance and that should provide excellent coverage.

    Can The Disaster Company rehab personal items that have been damaged by water?

    Yes, we can often recover irreplaceable items that have water damage. We employ different processes depending on the items, such as dry cleaning or foam cleaning, to preserve your cherished possessions. 

    Are you the victim of an acute weather event such as a flood or hurricane? Call The Disaster Company immediately at 801-741-0000. We proudly serve Ogden as well as areas throughout Southwestern Wyoming and Northern Utah.
