Usually, insurance pays most if not all of mold, fire, smoke, and water restorations costs. They actually demand quality work themselves. So there’s no need to risk sub-standard results from anyone less than true professionals. We participate in preferred vendor programs from several major insurance companies that serve La Habra homes and businesses and are held to high standards by those companies, our DKI affiliation, and the IICRC certification process for out technicians (http://www.iicrc.org/consumers/).

Our La Habra Services
Even seemingly small problems can grow into big headaches in just a couple of days, and can continue to worsen for weeks to come. And progressive destruction can be completely hidden inside walls and under flooring. IICRC guidelines state that anything more than a small area of wet carpet is likely to lead to serious water damage repairs without professional drying and sanitation services. And the EPA urges professional mold removal for any problems larger than 10 square feet (about 3 to 4 feet across).
That’s why we provide prompt response La Habra emergency services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We’ll take care of the building itself along with its contents, with services spanning from carpet cleaning to demolition and reconstruction. For major fires and flooding our pack out services pre-treat furniture and other possessions then transport them to our facility for further treatment and secure storage.
Flood Damage Restoration
Whether there’s been storm damage and a leaky roof or flood damage from rising waters we’ll mitigate against further water damage repairs (as required for coverage of any mold or secondary damage that occurs) and help you sort through insurance issues. We’ll take care of any pump-out or drainage necessary then move forward with debris removal, water damage restoration, repairs, and reconstruction.
Water Damage Restoration
Immediate and thorough drying is the key to keeping overall water restoration costs down. Without it water that has soaked deeply into the structure stays there long enough to lead to major water damage repairs. Better Restorations covers the entire process — inspection and assessment, mitigation, restoration, and reconstruction. Our technicians are certified in the latest tested and proven drying and dehumidifying methods, and we arm them with state-of-the-art equipment such as water extractors, refrigerant dehumidifiers, and turbo dryers for fast and complete structural dry out.
Our services also include plumbing, roof, and other leak detection. In addition to the structure, our experts will also attend to carpet, upholstered furniture, and other possessions.
Whether resulting from a La Habra wildfire, or a kitchen or other building fire, we provide complete fire damage restoration services from board-up to final cleanup and haul away. After our structural inspection, our crews will secure the building, isolate any occupied areas, and as needed pack out furniture and other belongings. Our flood damage restoration teams will take care of firefighting water, and our experts will discuss key repair versus replace decisions before proceeding with repairs, demolition, and reconstruction services. We’ll handle debris removal and haul-away, so there’s nothing you’ll need to arrange separately.
Some smoke damage is immediate, but for most materials you have a few days (but only a few days) before staining and odors become permanent. Our specialists know the best methods for each combination of smoke (such as dry, wet, and protein) and item to be treated for the most thorough smoke removal without further harm. We’ll also get rid of smoke odors for good.
Certified Mold Remediation
It doesn’t really matter if you have black mold or not. All species pose potentially serious health risks and cause mold damage to porous building materials as well as many possessions. Our certified mold removal specialists follow all EPA, OSHA, and IICRC standards of containment (including negative-pressure exhaust and air scrubbing) and absolutely thorough mold and spore removal. Approved techniques can range from wipe down and HEPA vacuuming all the way to tear outs and reconstruction. Our advanced cryo-cleaning equipment makes short work of building surfaces, and non-toxic anti-fungal treatments and HVAC cleaning complete our mold remediation. We’ll also track down and correct the source of dampness that caused the problem in the first place with our leak detection instruments and experts.
A sewage backup or toilet overflow with feces is highly hazardous contamination. Disease organisms become airborne, and can thrive anywhere there’s remaining moisture. Our certified anti-microbial technicians will manage containment and other precautions while additional technicians handle sewage removal (as well as regulated safe and sanitary transportation through La Habra on its way to disposal) followed by meticulously thorough cleaning, disinfecting, and drying.
Whether from bacteria, mold, or smoke we provide permanent odor removal. Beyond direct cleaning (including air ducts and other parts of your heating and air conditioning system), our thermal fogging and ozone generators reach deeply into the structure and penetrate porous materials to safely break apart odor-causing compounds.
