Water Damage Restoration in Jacksonville FL
When you are in need of a water damage restoration company this site will provide you with extensive information to help you choose the right company.
BEWARE! With the increase in economic stress in our area we have witnessed many “Fly-by-night” companies marketing themselves as water damage restoration experts in the Jacksonville area. There are very few that have been incorporated and running a family based business for as long as Dry It FAST. With over 32 years of helping Jacksonville clients deal with multiple levels of disasters, no company can present you with as many testimonials and referrals from actual insurance adjusters as my company can.
Dry It FAST is North Florida’s only certified Heated Structural drying company. Our firm arrives at your home within hours, NOT days to assist you with your water loss. It won’t matter if the damage from a broken pipe, a failed appliance or a overflowing tub, our team of certified technicians and inside adjusters will help you navigate through the nightmare we call “Insurance Hell”…
Friends, it’s not a walk in the park when you call in an insurance claim so you will want to have an “Honest” and experienced firm helping you thru. As I mentioned before, there are several companies in Jacksonville that are not based here, do not have a vested interest in your experience and many actually perform insurance fraud while manipulating YOUR claim for their financial benefit.
These companies are easy to spot. Usually they will be referred by a plumber. This plumber then receives as much as $800 CASH for calling the company for you. These are two big warning signs.
Also protect yourself if the so called restoration company starts taking about removing flooring, carpeting cabinetry and sheet rock BEFORE they even take an assessment of the loss.
If you have any doubts as to the validity of the company you are being told is the “BEST” in town… be cautious and feel free to give me a call… anytime.
You will be presented with many choices for water damage Jacksonville FL help so it pays to do a little research before signing any contracts.

Dry It FAST Water Damage Restoration Experts Bring You the 10 Must-Know Facts about Water Damage Repair before you pick up the phone and call anyone!
Here’s the first horrifying fact…
I talk to homeowners and commercial business owners every day about water intrusion. Roughly 75% of all home owners will sustain a water damage or water removal situation within the home at some point.
And the worst part about this is…
These people have no idea “Who To Call” FIRST. During a water damage emergency many homeowners become panicked and frightened. Obviously this is not the best emotional state of mind to be in when you have to make quick and proper decisions.
To put water removal in perspective, please realize that this doesn’t just apply to those homeowners that already have a relationship with Dry It FAST restoration. When many homeowners are confronted with standing water from a break in a frozen pipe, failed ice maker line or overflowing toilet, the normal reaction is to grab the phone and call your insurance company.
I’ve met countless homeowners who’ve done just that. Called their insurance 1-800 claims number and have said my house is flooded. Unfortunately, these unsuspecting homeowners never even think for a moment that the person on the other end of the phone may push them to use a “Preferred Vendor” for their water damage claim
This is not always the best decision…
In the State of Florida, YOU the homeowner, the person that owns the home that has suffered a water loss that may need emergency water removal, water damage restoration or even some mold remediation, has the legal right to choose which company YOU want in your home.
The insurance company can NOT demand that you use their preferred vendor. Although many companies do. They use ruthless scare tactics and misleading half/truths such as telling the homeowner that the insurance company may not cover the claim if they use an outside company.
Let’s look at the logic behind this tactic which I have witnessed many times when clients look for a water damage restoration service in Jacksonville Florida. When the claims assistant says I’ll send out a company… YOU must ask yourself – “who is the restoration company working for?”
Me or the insurance company?
This is a valid question and I advise everyone to hire YOUR own remediation company in any of the areas within Jacksonville. If you need water damage help in Ponte Vedra, water removal in St. Johns FL or the Beach, YOU want a company that works for you and knows how to protect you from the ruthless insurance companies.
Dry It FAST Water Damage Specialists in Jacksonville FL and St. Augustine FL
is NOT a preferred vendor for any insurance company. We work for YOU! After 32 years in the water damage and sewer backup restoration industry, I have seen it all. Denied claims for stupid reasons, homeowners abandoned by their insurance companies when the homeowner needs them most and I have even had to help property owners secure a Public Adjuster to battle these insurance claims departments when they offer a settlement of $20,000 when the valid loss is in excess of $100,000
They are not your friends.
It’s a horrible situation when this happens. It can seriously affect the proper remediation of a water damage loss in Jacksonville and if the claim is delayed and remediation is stalled, the wet materials can end up growing mold, become black mold and now the homeowner is faced with either a Mold Removal claim or worse, a full-blown Mold Remediation job.
More than anything else, it bothers me tremendously when good homeowners and business owners are taken for a ride by their own insurance providers. I hate seeing people used and abused when they are dealing with a water damage emergency.

You won’t be disappointed.
Just a heads up for all consumers in the Jacksonville market and surrounding area. Many plumbers refer water damage losses to a few unscrupulous and unethical restoration companies that have set up shop in our market! If you are presented with the name of a company by a plumber… It is buyer beware time.
Simply Google that name and see if they have multiple offices throughout the state. If they do – search for complaints before you SIGN anything!
Local – city based companies that have been in business for 30 years plus… are always your safest choice.
Good luck and please feel free to call our team anytime.
