IICRC CERTIFIED, LICENSED, BONDED & INSURED
Flood damage in Baltimore is not an uncommon occurrence. Water Damage describes a significant number of possible losses caused by water intruding. The water will permit the attack of a material or system by destructive processes. This could be rotting of wood, growth, rusting of steel, de-laminating of materials such as plywood , and many, many others. Call Eco Pro Restoration 24/7 if you need a water damage restoration company that cares and will respond without delay. Many water damage cleanup companies will leave you hanging all night, not us. We will respond to your call anytime, day or night.
Water damage can originate by different sources such as: broken dishwasher hose, washing machine overflow, dishwasher leakage, broken pipes, clogged toilet, and leaking roof, moisture damage behind walls, foundation cracks, plumbing leaks, and bad weather (snow, rain, floods, and hurricanes).
The damage may be unnoticeable and slow or minor such as water spots that could eventually discolor a surface, or it may be instantaneous and catastrophic such as flooding. However fast it occurs, flood damage is a major contributor to loss of property if not the main cause of insurance loss.
Immediate water damage cleanup can prevent further damage. Many time, water damage will also cause mold problems. Mold removal and prevention services can be performed at the same time as the water is cleaned up. Often basement waterproofing can be done to prevent future problems.
We had an unfortunate sewage backup and when we called for carpet cleaning we were given a recommendation to Eco Pro. They came, they saw, they removed! Quite a lot of removal, it's scary how quickly water gets under the carpet. Fortunately, we had full basement coverage and Eco Pro handled the insurance paperwork completely.
I called Eco Pro and Jerry responded immediately. He personally came over within a few hours of my call and patiently answered all my questions, explaining how the mitigation and restoration process works with insurance. His guys were on time, professional, and got the job done efficiently. Everyone I dealt with was courteous, honest, and very helpful. This is a 5 star company, no question about that! In a stressful home situation this is the company you want standing behind you.
We used Eco Pro Restoration for the first time when our bedroom was flooded due to an old window and really bad storm. Jerry came over and checked under our carpet and in our vent for mold/water damage. He reassured us that we kept it dry enough by soaking up the water with towels, but sprayed under the carpets to be safe. Luckily we had home owners insurance and that covered most of the costs that ended up being less than expected. Now years later, we have an issue with mold in our bathroom due to bad ventilation. We contacted 2 other mold remediation companies before I contacted Eco Pro Restoration (I found them on Google again and remembered our good experience). The first company told us they needed to remove all of the dry wall and it would cost at least $1,500. The second company wanted to charge us $150 for just an estimate, so we didn't even bother with them. Jerry came the day after I called Eco Pro Restoration and checked the moisture in the ceiling of our bathroom. He told me it was just on the surface and we could just clean it with mold cleaner/bleach and then paint with mold-resistant paint. He also suggested getting a stronger vent. We weren't charged for this and I was extremely relieved. He saved us a lot of money! I highly recommend Eco Pro Restoration. They are honest and obviously not just in it for the money. I feel like I can trust them.
I called EcoPro Restoration to get a quote for mold remediation. Jerry contacted me to set up a time for him to come look at the job and provide a quote. First of all, he made it very easy to fit in my schedule and came over on a Sunday afternoon. Secondly, they do not charge for estimates as some other companies do so that was another win. Sunday afternoon Jerry came to the house, arriving about 10 minutes early. We went to the basement and he thoroughly checked out the mold on the walls and other areas of concern. He said this is something easily fixed with some cleaning, a coat of Killz and some fresh paint. He said no need to hire mold remediation professionals for that and save the money. Well, I was rather surprised because another company quoted me $4,000 for the same job. Jerry suggested that we walk around the outside of the house to see if there were any potential problems and provided suggestions for a few things that I could take care of. It is so refreshing to deal with an honest company that really could have just written up a quote for work that really did not need to be done by a professional. I highly recommend these guys to anyone looking to get mold remediation work done. They are super professional and honest as they come!
Nobody wants to deal with a sewage backup, but echo pro restoration of Baltimore made the process easy and painless. They were there within a couple hours and promptly and professionally cleaned up our basement. We could not be happier with the cleaning.
THANK YOU Eco Pro Restoration!!! You are exactly what your name suggests, true PROS! Thank you for speedy response time, professionalism and excellent service!!! You were a pleasure to work with & we will recommend you to our friends & associates.
