Residential Water Damage Restoration in Rochester NY
The residential Water Damage Restoration experts at Rock Environmental are here for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Water is often the one thing that can ruin the entire ecosystem of your home.
No matter what the extent of the water damage to your home may be, once you recognize the problem you can’t afford to wait.
If you have been a victim of water damage, it’s vital that you clean and dry your home environment as quickly and thoroughly as possible. You can’t afford the risk of dangerous chemical or biological contaminants remaining in your home, or proliferating in stagnating water.
Water damage is something you need to control in a swift manner to save yourself from the troubles of more damage to electricity, the structure of your property, or mold growth.
Water damage restoration is a job for a trained and certified professional who has the equipment and training necessary to restore your home or business to order. Taking shortcuts in the aftermath of such an event has the potential to set the stage for years of problems in the future.
Any event that releases a significant quantity of water into your home deserves an inspection. Everything may look fine to an untrained eye, but it’s much more cost effective to pay to be sure than to discover months or years later that, unknown to you, a mold colony was formed or wood began to rot.

Rock Environmental’s Water Cleanup and Restoration Equipment
Every water damage situation is unique. Depending on the size of the damaged area and the extent of the damage, different equipment may be required. The professional IICRC trained crew at Rock Environmental has an array of water extraction and drying equipment to use.

Vacuums–Industrial strength to remove water, and clean flooring can be truck-mounted or handheld
Pumps–Used for elevated levels of water after flooding from storms
SteraMist–Used to effectively clean and disinfect spaces large and small

Water Damage Cleanup Process
Rock Environmental has a 24/7 emergency response for water damage and restoration. Often, requiring immediate action, we have crews ready and standing by ready for your call. Not all fire and water damage restoration companies can say that! Since water damage can happen for any reason, we have a top-of-the-line cleanup and restoration checklist that allows us to effectively restore your property to pre-loss condition.
First things First - Call us! Crew standing by 24/7. Some of the questions you will be asked include when and how the water damage occurred, as well as the location. Once we have your contact information, we will coordinate a time to come to your property for an assessment.
What happens next will occur in a series of processes starting with the assessment and inspection of your property. Once we determine the cause and source of the water damage, we begin working out a plan for extraction and restoration. Keeping in mind that there may be mold, mildew, or other volatile organic compounds in the area, we ensure a plan to keep you and our crew safe from exposure.
- Shut off water source (if applicable)
- Determine water type (clean water from pipes, dirty water from flooding, black water or sewage)
- Basic mold and asbestos inspection
- Removal of furniture and other items that can be salvaged or that hasn’t been damaged
- Create a water extraction and restoration plan
The next set of processes include the water extraction itself, and removal of damaged items in the space. Depending on the situation, various pieces of equipment may be used. This can include industrial truck-mounted vacuums, pumps, and water suction mats.
Once all standing water is gone, all debris will be removed. Items that have been damaged will be trashed as well. An inspection will be conducted to determine the extent of damage to the floors and walls.
During this course of action, we will use our state-of-the-art drying equipment. This will include dehumidifiers, air filters, and multiple high-powered fans. The drying process may take a few days, however, we strive for the fastest way to ensure no further mold damage. Once dried out, we will check for moisture using hygrometers and moisture meters to see if more work needs to be done.
Once everything has been determined as dry, we can pack up and begin the restoration process. We begin by cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing the area. We finish with the restoration of any walls or floors including the drywall and flooring. If we are able to restore any of your items, we will complete that process at our facility and return them.
