As spring draws nearer and snow off the roofs and ground begins to melt, Minnesotans everywhere may find themselves faced with the dreaded flooded basement – something that you’d best be prepared for. Often caused by a malfunctioning gutter system, foundation cracks, or simple bad luck, this mini string of springtime disasters can be responsible for thousands of dollars of damage in a single home alone, if the water happens to get into valuable electrical appliances. Lingering water in places where it shouldn’t can also cause its own kind of suffering; Mold growth tends to follow in the aftermath of a poorly-tended-to basement flood.


Whether your basement floods or a pipe bursts, you’ll need professional help to remove standing water fast and save you from any residual damage. Luckily, CCS Cleaning & Restoration has just the team of professionals to get the job done right! Our water cleanup method emphasizes speed, efficiency, and quality, and with our top-notch equipment, our process always goes far beyond surface-level damage.


We want you to know what to expect when you pick up the phone and call us. Sudden water damage of any sort, be it from a flooding basement or otherwise, is incredibly stressful, especially if encountered in the middle of the night. So save our number to speed dial, and read on to learn a little bit about what will happen if water damage ever strikes your house.

24/7 Water Damage Restoration

First and foremost, know that we’ll be on the scene regardless of when you call us. We offer 24-hour emergency services, so never hesitate to reach out when you need help. We understand that your water damage can’t wait until regular business hours!


After you’ve called, please follow the What to Do Until We Arrive instructions on our website. This helps to keep you, your family, and your belongings safe until our professional water damage restoration team can take matters into their hands.


After we arrive, our team will begin the process of salvaging your home or business using advanced techniques and technology.

1. Water Damage Assessment & Inspection

You may think that, in an emergency situation, there’s no time for such planning. Your home or workplace is on the line! However, the pros at CCS Cleaning & Restoration know that going into any job without an action plan is a recipe for disaster, and you don’t need another disaster on top of what you’re already dealing with.


A plan of attack during these critical moments is what lets us do the five-star work that we do, and we’re adept at formulating these plans quite quickly. We work hard to get to every nook and cranny during our water damage restoration process, and identifying them during this planning phase enables us to do so.

2. Water Removal

Using machines not available to the average homeowner, our team pumps gallons upon gallons of water out of your home, ridding it of the most immediate safety hazards. After that’s completed, we go above and beyond, using specialized technology to eliminate invisible pockets of moisture that would otherwise trigger mold growth and unpleasant odors.


We understand that when it comes to water damage, it’s not only your property that’s at risk – it’s your family or customers, too. We spare no effort to return your home to you as clean as it was pre-damage. Which leads us to our next action step…

3. Drying

Once we’ve gotten control of the situation, the structural drying work then begins. Using targeted techniques and cutting edge technologies, we work hard to eliminate any and all last traces of moisture that the previous step didn’t catch.


As we said, any pockets of the stuff left behind turn into mold-growth havens. However, they also can contribute to structural decay of your home itself. But no need to worry – with the keen-eyed professionals at CCS Cleaning & Restoration on the job, your home or business is in good hands.

4. Cleaning & Sanitizing

Tidying up isn’t just a bonus service when it comes to water clean-up. Even after drying out, your home might still look as though a tornado went through it, and that’s nothing any understandably stressed-out family should return to. Plus, certain types of flooding situations, such as those that involve sewer backups, can lead to dangerous microbes infiltrating your home, which will lead to disease if not properly taken care of.


That’s why we at CCS Cleaning & Restoration make it a point to sanitize any damaged areas and pull out all the stops to get rid of any lurking pathogens. We’ll disinfect applicable belongings and get rid of lingering odors. You can rest easy when you return, knowing it’s more than safe to do so, as we’re not just water cleanup experts, but biohazard experts too!

Call CCS for All of Your Water Damage Restoration Needs

Sometimes, after the major water damage has been taken care of, no more water damage remediation than already mentioned will be necessary. However in more advanced cases, additional measures may need to be taken. This may involve carpet cleaning procedures or upholstery cleaning, depending on the situation at hand.


Part of the water damage remediation process, to us, is remediating the situation. We want to salvage as much of your home or business as possible, even if things look dire and you’re feeling bleak. That’s why our services go beyond water clean-up to encompass everything from tile cleaning to rug cleaning. With our wide breadth of expertise and high-tech equipment, you know that CCS Cleaning & Restoration has the tools and know-how needed to quite honestly save the day.


Whether you’ve got standing water or simply a soggy carpet, CCS Cleaning & Restoration has what it takes to turn a disaster back in time. When your money and safety is on the line, you deserve no less. Give our Faribault office a call today at 507-334-1774 for both emergency and standard appointments.
