As a homeowner in Orange County, protecting one of your most valuable assets is a priority. That’s why when you get a leak, or even worse, a flood, it is important to know who to call. There are several companies who claim they can help with floods and water damage. Plumbers, contractors, and water restoration companies all sound like good options. Knowing the differences between each, and who to call, can save you thousands of dollars and many headaches. Here is a quick overview of each…

First, Let’s Discuss Plumbers

When you have a leak, your first call should always be a plumber. Plumbers are trained to identify the sources of leaks and get them repaired quickly. Plumbers are often trained in modern leak detection techniques and have leak detection equipment used to locate a water leak source. This modern video and audio technology can locate leaks behind walls and beneath floors. Check out this great article here on our leak detection services. Once, you have the leak identified and fixed, now you need to clean up the mess…

Next Up, Water Restoration Companies

Water restoration companies, such as our good friends at Restoration 1 of Central Orange County, are an integral part in getting your home restored back to pre-flood conditions. Restoration companies are often called when major damage has occurred due to water, fire, or other major events. These companies can help restore your home back to normal. Some of the services a restoration company will offer include…

  • water clean up
  • water restoration
  • mold removal

What About Contractors?

Contractors can definitely play a critical role when you have a flood or major water leak in your home. Some restoration companies will offer similar services, but a contractor will repair the major damage to your home’s structure. They will do things like replacing floors, windows, drywall, and cabinets.
