Certified Work for All Types of Disaster Restoration
911 Restoration is here for you no matter what your building faces. You need a company that is capable of doing everything, because disasters are hardly isolated events. For example, in an earthquake, a water line can break and sewage backup may happen. Thus, having an all-in-one team by your side means all your issues are resolved in one fell swoop.
All of our technicians have undergone rigorous training to provide expert disaster restoration. They are all certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification, an international non-profit aimed at ensuring restoration businesses around the world are capable of professionally handling the latest in technologies and techniques.
Our employees undergo rigorous training to earn certifications in everything from microbial treatment and water damage repair to smoke removal and fire restoration. These are repairs needed in home accidents, and the longer the homeowner has to wait for these problems to be resolved, the costlier work becomes.
When we arrive, our disaster restoration team forms an action plan. For example, in the event of a fire, ash and water damage are usually the main concerns. So, in our free damage estimate, we outline the means of restoration for the homeowner, then work on removing the water and ash.
Having knowledgeable professionals at your side makes all the difference in cost, time, and effectiveness. We want to be the difference we see in the world.
Because of our goal to provide you a premium, streamlined experience, we have become experts in home restoration and insurance paperwork. We understand the nuances of insurance claims, and we have become successful in maximizing the coverage paid to homeowners.

Home Flooding from Pipe Burst
Pipe bursts are very common and occur in houses across the United States and Canada. They often happen during a blizzard. Water damage and floods are direct results of pipe bursts, and mold is often an ugly side effect.
911 Restoration’s disaster restoration crews have the means to repair your property after such an event and we provide you with tips on how to prevent them in the future. The greatest piece of advice we can provide any homeowner is:
Know where to find your water shutoff valve.
A shutoff valve is usually a lever with a rubber cap on the handle. Sometimes it is blue and sometimes it is red. There is one main one, and other smaller ones found in the home. For example, there is probably one attached to the water main where your hose is attached.
If you cannot find the correct shutoff valve for the particular pipe, you might be able to uncover the water main at the street or in the basement. Underneath the cement cover, you can turn the knob until water stops pouring. If you do not find either water shutoff valve before 911 Restoration arrives, our water damage specialists will close the water line for you.
The best time to turn the water off in your home is if you have experienced a pipe burst or are going on vacation. There are many common reasons pipes rupture, but shutting the water off can save you a fortune. If it happens while you are away, your home may flood without your knowledge, causing extensive damage.
Avoiding Water Disasters
When it comes to avoiding burst pipes, it is as simple as knowing when they are most likely to occur, as to help you react best to the situation. In the winter, when the temperature drops to below freezing, try to keep the water in your pipes moving. Keep a faucet open so the water inside is less likely to freeze.
Another great tip is to keep exposed pipes insulated and dry throughout the winter.
Kitchen Fire Prevention and Restoration
Another common type of disaster our technicians see are grease fires that start in the kitchen. Grease at a high enough temperature will ignite, and it is one’s natural reaction to combat that with water, but that usually goes very poorly. Mixing water and grease results in an even more violent fire. Turn off the burner and let the fire extinguish itself by burning away its fuel – grease.
Avoiding Fire Disasters
Response time is pivotal when reducing the amount of damage from a fire. Smoke alarms, fire extinguishers and an evacuation plan are the three most essential preparations you can make to keep your home and your family safe from fires.
After a fire marshal has cleared your home, call the fire damage restoration team at 911 Restoration. Our Fresh Start disaster restorations make the building look, smell, and feel as if the fire never occurred
Sewage Backup Disaster Restoration
Sewage backup can occur as a result of flooding or clogging. Raw sewage carries a high amount of microbes that can make you sick, so our recommendation is to avoid that area completely if it does occur. Wait for our disaster restoration professionals at 911 Restoration to arrive before attempting cleanup on your own.
In case of a home flood, shutting off your water can help you avoid a sewage backup. To prevent such a disaster from occurring, look for signs of blockage in your plumbing system. If any drain is slower than usual, then you might have a clog. If your toilet gurgles, that could also indicate possible sewage floods.
Call 911 Restoration if sewage enters your home. We have full hazmat gear and other protective equipment to safely remediate the area.
If you identify a problem before flooding occurs, try pouring a mix of one part vinegar, one part baking soda down the drain. Wait for the bubbling to stop, and then follow it with boiling hot water. Repeat this as many times as needed until the drain or toilet goes back to normal.
Water Disaster Restoration Done Right the First Time Keeps Mold Away
All these disasters have the potential to cause massive amounts of water damage. If they are not remediated quickly and correctly, then they can result in a mold infestation.
Mold is only deadly if you ingest it, but it will also decrease your quality of life. With mold comes headaches, nausea, exacerbated allergy symptoms, and pungent odors. You can trust that if you call 911 Restoration for any disaster restoration job, your home will be mold free.
Call 911 Restoration if you experience any type of home disaster, as we can handle it all.
