Water damage can arise from any number of sources: an overflowing sink; a broken pipe; a leaking roof. No matter the cause, immediate action is required when water floods your home or office.

At Nichols Inc., our water damage mitigation technicians are available around the clock. They’re equipped to handle all types of water cleanup and restoration projects.

Once the Nichols team receives your call, we’re on the scene as soon as possible (in most cases, 2 hours). Using the proper drying and dehumidifying techniques, we remove water and moisture from sub-flooring, carpets, walls and crawl spaces quickly and effectively. After all contaminated structures have been removed and the drying process is complete, we can rebuild as necessary.

By doing the right thing now, we can mitigate your current loss and save you from future losses. Excess moisture can lead to other problems, such as mold infestations, if not treated properly and in a timely manner.
