Water Damage Restoration in Waldorf, MD

Any amount of water in your home or building can result in severe damage as it spreads through porous materials. As water becomes absorbed into drywall, flooring, wood, carpeting, and other materials, the result can include discoloration, warping, swelling, and permanent structural damage.

But if it is left to sit without quick flood cleanup services and treatment, the area will begin to smell musty from the combination of excess moisture, bacteria, and cellulose in porous surfaces.

Mold will then be a problem as it can develop within 48 hours of water damage, dispersing its spores into the air and affecting new surfaces. For that reason, our water damage restoration technicians are trained to perform complete mold remediation as part of any water damage project.

  • “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!”
