Water Damage Restoration
Water damage repairs are one the most common insurance claims throughout the country. Water quickly soaks deeply into just about everything to where drying under fans and natural conditions can take a couple of weeks, or more. Yet is as little as a day you could be facing mold, crumbling drywall, buckling floors, warping and splitting wood, and so on. Carpet cleaners and wet-vac rentals simply can’t reach moisture lingering deep inside wood and other porous materials. But every last bit of excess moisture must be removed before it has a chance to do harm.
We work quickly, efficiently, and effectively to thoroughly dry out carpet and the underlying sub-floor and remove dampness that has wicked up inside walls. We begin our water damage removal with powerful state-of-the art water extraction gear and then use a combination of refrigerant dehumidifiers and specialized spot heaters until our testing shows humidity and moisture are down to safe levels. That’s a matter of a few days, and often twice as fast as with competing equipment and methods. Our crews of carpenters and other craftspeople can then complete water damage repair, from replacing carpet to reconstruction. We can also neutralize any lingering odors.
Flood Damage Removal
Flood damage repair whether caused by natural flooding, sewage backup, or a burst water heater requires special worker protection and expert sanitization as any water that’s been around for a while is likely teeming with bacteria, viruses, and fungus. Our certified flood damage restoration experts are fully qualified for rapid pump outs, decontamination, and mud removal as well as for professional water damage removal and mold removal.
Fire Damage Restoration

As a full-service company Flood Masters can then continue on with fire damage repair, water damage repair, and so on. We’ll handle the full cleanup effort, including haul away and proper disposal.
Smoke and Odor Removal
Properly handling smoke and odor is one of the most technically challenging aspects of fire damage restoration due to the many combinations of types of smoke and materials affected. Plus, smoke travels an amazing distance and into some of the most surprising locations. Prompt action is imperative as the many toxic and corrosive compounds in smoke and soot quickly soak deeply into porous materials to where they can no longer be removed. That’s the reason for lingering smoke odors. Common cleaning methods are usually ineffective, and may actually force smoke compounds in deeper. Whether for building surfaces, furniture, or other possessions we’ll take the right steps right away. We’ll also use special equipment to neutralize odors throughout the building, wherever they may be hiding.
In a mild humid climate such as Santa Monica’s any source of water, no matter how small, is likely to lead to mold That could be a roof or other leak, a plumbing problem, part of flood damage removal, or simply poor ventilation. Growing without light, your mold problem can remain hidden with walls or under carpet. But make no mistake, it’s a serious issue. This particular type of fungus releases allergens, and many species also release toxins that can cause very serious health issues. Besides exposing you and your family to these risks, delayed action often leads to the need to replace large areas of sheetrock and other porous materials.
TIP: Keep in mind that most Santa Monica homeowners policies provide limited or no mold remediation coverage unless the cause was sudden, such as a broken pipe, or part of flood damage repair or some other emergency. So be sure and be on the lookout for excess moisture and water where it shouldn’t be.
Our mold removal work begins with extensive actions to isolate the work area — otherwise disturbed mold will spread it’s spores (“seeds”) and contamination throughout the building.
