As devastating as flooding from forces of nature is, it is not a main cause of water damage to properties in Mascoutah Illinois.

Mold remediation and water damage restoration can minimize the after effects of too much stray water in your home.
Broken pipes bursting from winter freezes let you know in a hurry when they need attention, but not always before they soak flooring, carpet, sheetrock and plaster.

Available 24/7, Absolute Clean Floors can start clean-up immediately.
Sump pumps can wear out, but worse are heavy storms that knock out power to them, shutting them down. Without a properly working sump pump, basement flooding risk rises like high tide. Check your sump pump weekly to make sure it is working properly.
