Frozen pipes? Flooded carpet?

Below zero temps can freeze and literally pop & burst pipes.  If you find this happening and water gushing everywhere….  The most important thing to do right away is to stop the source of water.  Does everyone in your  home know where the main water shut off valve is?  If not take the time to show everyone.    This can save a homeowner thousands of dollars in damage by stopping the water as quick as possible.

The next step is to remove the water from your flooded home.  A wet vac is NOT going to take hundreds of gallons of water out of wet carpet and flooring.  You need to call a professional restoration expert and have the water removed as quick as possible.  Most restoration companies have crews on call 24 hours a day.  If the one you call can’t get to your home immediately you should call another one.  Time is of the essence and we know by getting to the flooded house fast we can save the homeowner money & shorter length of time dealing with this disaster in their home so they can get back to their regular life.     We serve Anchorage and the Mat Su Valley and do everything from intial dry out, monitoring, content cleaning  & if needed reconstruction.

Another Happy Client

We love helping our clients & strive to always give the best customer service ….

Dear Mr. Hongslo,

“In late October, we returned home from a 4-day visit to family in Washington to find a broken hot water pipe in our downstairs utility room and a completely flooded basement level.  It was early Sunday evening when we discovered the disaster and were desperate to handle the situation.  I knew we did not have the equipment or resources to deal with the problem and went to the yellow pages for help.  The first seven restoration companies I called did not answer their phone.  My eighth call was to TCM and was answered by one of  your Project Managers, Mr. Ron Farnsworth. Ron told me he would have a team to our house in just over an hour.  Much to my relief, Ron and his crew did in fact arrive in about an hour and immediately took control of the situation, vacuuming up water, moving furniture and valuables to sage dry areas, removed damaged flooring and planning how to save the sheetrock on the walls of the lower level of my house.  For the next three days Ron and his crew brought in specialized equipment to dry the walls, and helped plan the complete restoration of the downstairs, all the while making measures to allow my wife and I to stay in our home.  Within a short number of weeks Ron had arranged subcontractors to restore our home with new flooring, repairing wall paper, replacing doors and trim, etc.  All work was conducted in a very professional manner and was of very high quality.  I want to thank Ron and TCM for all the efforts to make a disastrous situation bearable for my wife and me, and for making our house our home again.  I have rarely experienced such outstanding service from a service provider.”  

Sincerely, Bud Alto
