Water Damage Restoration & Flood Cleanup Professionals
Carpet Cleaning, Tile Cleaning, and Upholstery Cleaning
Water damage and house floods need to be cleaned up immediately. This damage may have occurred due to a broken pipe, leaking appliance, storm, ice dam, overflowing toilet, tub, or sink, or anything similar. Whatever the case is, our services for certified water damage restoration, flood cleanup, in Kennewick, Richland, and Pasco WA are here for you to make it so the parts of your home that have been damaged by water will be dealt with properly. We hold many water damage restoration certifications and over 20 years of flood cleanup and flood drying experience.
The first question we usually hear is “What do we do?”. Follow these water damage restoration steps in the case of a flooded home: Turn off the water, then call us immediately and we’ll be there within 60 minutes. Once we arrive, we can extract the water from the hard surface, carpet, and pad. Then we set up drying equipment, including dehumidifiers, air movers, and HEPA air filtration machines. We use advanced techniques and equipment to find where any hidden moisture may be and to extract it as thoroughly as is possible. This includes the use of infrared tools such as probes to determine where the water came from and to what extent the house has been damaged.
Drying the belongings and structure of your home properly is also essential to ensuring they can be restored. Proper water damage restoration needs to be done by trained professionals. We monitor the drying process closely during the drying process, using moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras. We also sanitize the areas of the home that have been affected by the water, including preventing odors from developing indoors. A lot is at stake right after your home has been affected by water damage, and getting professionals in immediately can make a huge difference.
Depending on the specific situation of your water damage restoration job, we may bring in various pieces of equipment to assist with the restoration and drying of particular materials in your home. This includes specialty drying systems for wood floors, dehumidifiers, air scrubbers, air movers, wall injection drying, and more. We will come back on a daily basis to check the drying progress and remove any equipment that is no longer needed.
What does water damage restoration cost and will my insurance cover it?
Most insurances will cover “sudden and accidental” water damage floods. This includes pipe breaking, sink/washer overflows, etc. We are insurance specialists and will bill your insurance for the water damage restoration costs.

What to Expect
When your home has a pipe break, washer flood, or bathtub overflow, we understand you’re under a lot of stress and don’t know what to first. The first step is to shut off the water to prevent further flooding. The second step is to call us immediately at (509) 582-9121 and we’ll be there within 60 minutes. Even though when your floors are soaked and all you see is water everywhere, we can help reverse and prevent a lot of the damage.
When we arrive at your home we will assess the water damage situation and look around with a thermal imaging camera. This will show us how far the water has wicked up the drywall, and how much carpet/pad is flooded. We can also see things like if the ceiling is flooded downstairs, or has the water ran down the basement walls if it came from upstairs.
After the initial water extraction, which removed about 95 percent of all the visible water, we will set up our specialized drying equipment. This includes air movers, dehumidifiers, HEPA air filtration units, and other specialized equipment depending on what flooded. The equipment usually runs between 3 and 5 days depending on the severity of the water damage and what the flood intrusion initially looked like. If it’s just a bedroom, it will dry within roughly 3 days. If it the whole home, we can clean the flood up immediately, and then dry the whole home within 5 days.

From the extensive education and over 20 years of experience, we’ve become known as the best flood company for water damage companies in Kennewick, Richland, Pasco, and surrounding areas.
If you’re looking for information on our site, you’ve most likely had a flood and aren’t sure what to do next. Mold begins to germinate within 24-48 hours after a water intrusion, so act quickly. Call us right now and we will come to give you a free estimate, no pressure. Advice is always free with us. If you do choose us to help protect your most important investment, we will bill your insurance company and help negotiate with them on a final invoice. Floods are usually 100% covered by insurance as long as they are “sudden” and “accidental”. Outside groundwater, sewage, and other instances are examples of when we see insurance denies coverage on your flood. Sewage and ground water need to be dealt with by a professional and can create serious health risks if not treated properly. This includes disinfecting and tearing out/removing items such as carpet, pad, and drywall. There are three main types of water damage, including clean freshwater, water with bacteria, and then sewage. Category 1, Category 2, and Category 3 (also known as black water), respectively.

We follow the IICRC water damage standard (also known as the S500) for the removal and remediation of water. A very simple plan for water damage is in place to deal with each form of flood cleanup. It may seem like a simple matter, but depending on the type of water spill (fresh vs. contaminated), the level of physical harm to you or your loved ones could be regrettably long-lasting. Once the water is gone, we take care of disinfecting, sanitizing, cleaning, washing and odor neutralizing everything from top to bottom.

“Continental Carpet Cleaning and Restoration came out to my house on a holiday weekend, in the late hours of a cold night, to help me with a flood that I could not handle myself.

They answered right away, were nice, straight to the point, caring & knew exactly what to do. Thank you SO MUCH for getting my home dried out and helping me in this difficult situation. You guys are people I can trust!” – Denise R. – Richland, WA

I highly recommend Kevin and his team of professionals if your home ever floods! Thank you, Kevin” – Nicole P. – Kennewick, WA

Frequently Asked Questions
More about Kennewick WA
Lewis and Clark traveled to Kennewick in the early 1800s finding a significant Indian population along Yakima and Columbia Rivers. Almost one hundred years later, Kennewick had grown to over thirty businesses and 350 residents. In 1904, the residents of Kennewick vote to incorporate it. Kennewick was known for its farming and crops in the springtime, because the winters were often mild in the region. Yes, the winters used to be mild, unlike the winter of 2018! The city already had many apple and cherry orchards, which are still popular today. Later, Concord grapes and many Welch’s grape crops were common and Kennewick held the annual Grape Festival, which is still present to this day.
By 1950, Kennewick’s population grew to ten thousand people. Over the next twenty years, Kennewick and the other Tri-Cities towns such as Richland and Pasco benefited from the development and building of the Columbia Basin Irrigation Project, which brought hydropower to the region. After construction, the three nuclear plants, also known as the Washington Public Power Supply System (WPPSS), aka Hanford, created a catapulting economic boost to Richland, which soon after Kennewick and Pasco developed more.
More recently, Kennewick Man was discovered at Columbia Park during the yearly hydroplane races. Know for years as the water follies, HAPO Community Credit Union stepped up as the main community sponsor a few years ago. Kennewick Man’s skeleton has been dated at 9,200 years old, which makes it the oldest almost fully completely skeleton ever discovered in North America. Today, Kennewick is the largest three cities, known as the Tri-Cities, with a population of roughly 80,000 and is poised for future prosperity and growth. The three main cities include Kennewick, Richland, and Pasco, with surrounding areas such as West Richland, Prosser, and Mesa, and Plymouth close by.
John Dam Plaza near the city center of Richland is a very popular destination for Friday night concerts and events.
