Water Damage Restoration
Your Water Damage experts
When you experience water in your home or business it can be overwhelming and frustrating, but don't worry our team of experts are here for you.
Water damage can range from a small sink overflow, broken pipe or sump pump failure to a devastating storm that brings major flooding. Regardless of how the damage occurs, it can create serious problems for your home or business.
An immediate response is imperative. Don’t be deceived by how things look or feel to the touch. Water can penetrate deep into your floors and walls giving the appearance of a dry surface, when down deep it is actually causing damage.
Undetected moisture will continue to cause damage. Beginning structural drying as soon as possible will help reduce possible reconstruction costs and secondary damage.

Sewer backups can be extremely dangerous. Besides a possible unpleasant odor, sewage backups may cause property damage and unhealthy living conditions. Untreated sewage contains disease-causing organisms such as parasites, viruses, and bacteria. Skin infections, respiratory infections, and allergic reactions can also be associated with these organisms.
Peerless technicians are protected against the threat of infectious diseases through vaccinations and the use of personal protective equipment. They have been specifically trained, based on OSHA standards, on how to properly work and restore in these types of infected areas.
We Can Dry It
Every water restoration job is a little different. Although there are many varying factors that can make drying difficult, Peerless has the training and experience to evaluate and get the job done right.
