Frequently Asked Questions
DO I HAVE TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL TO CLEAN UP THE DAMAGE?

WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER A FLOOD OR SEWAGE WATER LEAK?
First, contact YELLOW RESTORATION as soon as possible. Don’t wait. Water can cause mold and irreversible damage to many of the surfaces in your home.

Plus, you’ll want to avoid any biohazards from sewer backup.

HOW DO I PREVENT MOLD GROWTH?
Preventing mold is all about moisture control. That means sealing water leaks from all areas of your house (gutters, roof, pipes etc.) and appliances (dishwasher, washing machine, etc.). Keep indoor humidity at about 30-50%.
DO I HAVE TO USE THE RESTORATION COMPANY MY INSURANCE COMPANY RECOMMENDS?
No, you may use the restoration company of your choice.
HOW ARE HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE CLAIMS PAID?

DOES INSURANCE COVER LEAKS FROM THE ROOF?

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REMEDIATION AND MITIGATION?
Remediation is best thought of as clean up and disinfection—to reduce or remove contamination from the environment to prevent further contamination. For instance sucking water from a household emergency. Mitigation is refers to measures taken to shore things up to prevent further damage. For instance, putting a tarp on a roof to cover a leaky hole or putting plywood over broken windows until repairs (restoration) can be made.
I had a water damage caused by a versed water pipe in the wall. First thing you need in such an inconvenient situation is someone who knows what he's doing and get his head around the mess before it's too late. Yellow Restoration were definitely the one's to do so, professionally and thoroughly and in an hour period of time!! they have top of the line machine that dry the place in timely manner ...great Job
Highly recommended Had my basement flooded in the middle of the night, yellow restoration came with in an hour and got the job done! The following day morning they were back to work and took care of all the drywall job pumping out the water and clean everything up.
Mold, mold, mold go away! Just saying it doesn't work. When we realized we had an unhealthy dose of mold, we needed to call a mold specialist. We looked around online and found Yellow Restoration who handled floods, fire, and most importantly for us, mold. When we called in the first time we spoke with John. I explained our situation and even texted him a few pictures of the mold damage. He offered to come out later that afternoon to personally take a look at the damage. After seeing the mold in person, he assured us that it wasn't as bad as we thought and was confident his team could get rid of all of the mold. The price quote he gave us was fair, the staff was friendly, and the timing worked out like clock work. They did a great job and now we have no more mold! I would highly recommend them to anyone needing mold damage removal or any other water damage restoration services.
Yellow Restoration saved us twice now! Last year our home flooded because of a busted water pipe. They were able to clean up all the water and put everything in order. About a month ago we had a grease fire in our kitchen. Once again they exceeded expectations and our new kitchen looks 10 times better than the old one!
Yellow Restoration were amazing!! From the first day when they came out and treated the water damage to continuing all the way to the drying and demo , they were fantastic. Everyone was super helpful and nice at a time when you are really worrying about your home. They immediately responded to my call and addressed all of my questions and helped with the insurance and took wonderful care of our home. I would highly recommend them! Thank you Yellow Restoration!. Thank you David and everyone at Yellow!
