Professional Commercial Water Damage Restoration Services
Water damage can come in different forms and for various reasons. Some of the most common causes of commercial water damage are weather-related floods, burst or leaking pipes, roof leaks, appliance ruptures, and fire-related accidents. Whatever the cause may be, one thing is true -- the effects of water damage in your commercial property can have an immense impact on your business operations. If you can’t open for business, then you can’t assist your customers and earn revenue.
For immediate help with water damage and flooding, CALL (877) 511-2962.

Frequently Asked Questions
+ When a water damage event happens should I call my insurance first?
Your insurance company prefers you call a commercial restoration company like Cotton GDS to begin water cleanup and fix your water damage as quickly as possible. If possible, turn off any water valves you can access.
Call a plumber to fix the leak, if applicable, but the faster our crews arrive, the more damage we can help prevent in your commercial property. You’ll still want to call your insurance company, but you shouldn’t wait for an adjuster to arrive before beginning any kind of water damage restoration. If you plan to file a claim, they’ll need an assessment of the damage and restoration estimate anyway. Calling Cotton GDS speeds up the process.
+ How long is the water restoration process?
This depends on the severity and category of water damage. The more saturated an area is, more contaminated and widespread the water is, the longer the restoration process takes. This does NOT include the putback and repairs after the emergency phase is complete.
+ Can water damage cause mold to grow?
Short answer, absolutely. Water is one of the necessary ingredients needed for mold to grow. If you have water damage in your home and you don’t react fast enough to extract the water and properly dry the affected area, you could have mold growth within 48 hrs.
+ What happens after my business or property is dry?
After the damage is mitigated, repairs may be necessary. We are a full-service contractor and can make any repairs for you, leaving your business or commercial property in excellent condition when we leave.
+ Can Cotton GDS handle the project from beginning to end?
Yes. We can manage your water damage, fire damage, mold damage and any restoration or construction project you might have in your business or commercial property from beginning to end.
