Our Water Restoration Process

Basement floods, plumbing mishaps, and heavy rain can wreak havoc on your home. Water spreads throughout porous surfaces, saturates materials that support your home’s structure, and generates a long list of problems. The sooner you can get professionals to help, the less extensive the damage will be. Maxwell’s team is available around the clock to help you mitigate water damage. Take a look at our water restoration process below:

Thorough Inspections

Every water restoration project begins with a thorough inspection. We assess the extent of the damage throughout the property. This allows us to create a comprehensive plan of action and provide you with an in-depth estimate and project timeline.


Before cleanup can begin, removing the water is critical. We use high-quality water extraction equipment to quickly remove as much pooling water or standing water as we can.

Water & Sewage Cleanup

Cleanup involves removing damaged items, furniture, and materials. We also tackle sewage cleanup in a biologically safe way. Along the way, our restoration team will document damages so you have information to pass along to your insurance company.

Drying & Dehumidifying

This is one of the most important steps of the water damage restoration process. Water is easy to absorb, which means you might not see water that’s trapped in your walls, floors, or appliances. We’ll work to extract all the moisture to prevent mold and mildew growth.


The last step in our process is to efficiently restore your home. You can count on us to perform any needed repairs that will help restore your home to its original, pre-water damaged condition.

We Help Businesses Too

While the majority of our clients are residential property owners, we do help businesses too. Our commercial restoration services also include everything from sewage cleanup to repairs. Get in touch with us day or night to get started with an inspection.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no concrete answer for this. It can take anywhere from one to two weeks to complete this type of job, but it also depends on the extent of the damage and the overall scope of the project. For a better estimate, contact us today to schedule an inspection. All inspections come with an accurate timeline and cost estimate.

The first step is to make sure that your home insurance policy actually covers water damage.

After you’ve contacted your company, both your insurer and our team at Maxwell can help you better understand the extent of the damage and the cost it will take to repair your home and replace damaged items.

We cannot promise that your insurance company will cover everything, but we can promise that our team will work hard to coordinate with your insurance company and help you collect evidence of water damage.

The most important thing to do is ensure the safety of you, your family, pets, and anyone else in your household or building.

It’s also a good rule to avoid the use of any electrical appliances and tools, or to be around switches, fuses, or electrical wires.

After you and your family are in a safe location, contact your insurance company and reach out to our team at Maxwell Building Services for 24/7 water damage restoration assistance.

There are steps you can take on your own, but we recommend working with a professional. Sewage, if handled improperly, will cause health issues.

There is also a possibility of mold growth—breathing in spores can cause inflammation and respiratory issues.

Lastly, you may not have the right equipment for water extraction.

If you don’t have equipment, it will be expensive to purchase. Our IICRC-certified team already has the equipment and expertise needed to get the job done right.

This cost will vary based on the extent of water damage, the type of water that needs to be extracted, the size of your home or building, and the amount of repairs/restoration work that is needed.

When you call us, we always provide you with a free, no-obligation estimate. The best way to understand the cost of your water restoration project is to contact us for an inspection.
