Damage Caused by Water and Flooding

When water spreads through porous materials, it can lead to severe water damage — regardless of the amount of water. Even if you do your best to prepare for things like flood damage, sometimes the results are inevitable. When water is absorbed by carpeting, drywall, flooring, and other surfaces, such surfaces can become discolored, swell, and warp. A building’s structure can also become permanently damaged.

If left untreated, the damaged area starts to smell. The musty odor it gives off comes from a combination of bacteria, cellulose, and excess moisture in the porous materials.

Mold can also become a problem, forming within 48 hours of the damage. The mold scatters its spores into the air, allowing mold growth to spread and affect new areas. This is why our flood cleanup professionals are trained to implement mold remediation services as well.

Any questions concerning our plans for water damage services can be addressed by calling our emergency water damage restoration service number at 301-579-8215.

Water Damage Restoration FAQs

After a flood, you should find temporary accommodations for you and your family. Accommodation options may include staying with friends or family, booking a nearby hotel, motel, hostel, or Airbnb, or reaching out to local disaster relief shelters for emergency housing.

FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) offers essential help for disaster recovery, providing temporary housing, meals, and support with insurance claims. Individuals who have been affected by disasters are encouraged to reach out to their local FEMA branch for support.

A representative from your insurance company will assist you in navigating the claim process. It is advised to be ready for a potentially lengthy process, as most companies provide coverage for damages beyond the deductible. If your home floods, contact your flood insurance provider directly. Top To Bottom Renovation works directly with insurance to provide support to homeowners with their claim throughout the renovation process.

  • “Great restoration company!!! This is an exceptionally professional, knowledgeable company. I was frantic and completely lost when my husband discovered that our basement was flooded. I called at lease six restoration companies. The average appointment was a week out or more. My insurance company told me to do everything to prevent further damage but they could not authorize a contractor payment until I was assigned an adjuster. I found this company on my insurance’s website and they were able to be at my house in a very short period of time. They came prepared and ready to work. Mr. Johnson told me exactly what to expect through the entire process from his company. I signed a contract to get the water extracted immediately. The insurance inspector came while this company was working on the first day. Mr. Johnson and the adjuster worked independently in harmony for each of their respective areas of expertise. I highly recommend this company. I can’t say enough about the high quality of service that was provided. All of the workers were professional and focused as well as easy to approach. The pink van showed intentional branding and purposeful direct advertising. All the Best. Mrs. M Upper Marlboro”

  • “I have had nothing but a great experience with Top to Bottom. Fred and his team came in on an holiday and quickly addressed my water issues. They worked with me every step of the way and were totally transparent throughout the process. Would highly recommend them to anyone needing water mitigation or renovation services.”

  • “Phenomenal! Top To Bottom is highly exceptional from the quality of work to professionalism. The water heater went up in my house and flooded the entire basement. I called the company, the first thing Mr. Fred did was walked me through the insurance process, as this was my first time dealing with a flood and filing an insurance claim, his assistance put me at ease. The team arrived at 1am for the water damage restoration. Mr. Fred and his son went above and beyond to make a difficult situation extremely easy. They were available and responsive with the insurance company requests and needs. The renovation for the basement took about 3 weeks as there were 4 rooms that needed to be restored. They were in consistent communication with me every step of the way either by phone or email. After every room was complete Mr. Fred’s son would come, review what the contractors completed to ensure we were satisfied with the job. You can’t ask for better quality and professionalism. The basement looks better now than it did before the water damage. Again this company and works are Phenomenal! I will definitely refer there services to family and friends. Look out for the Pink van and Pink sheets!”
