Review by in Ypsilanti, MI
Charged got time not at job. Failed to complete work. Sales person misrepresented self as owner.
Response by 1-800 WaterDamage: My name is Fred Arthur and I am the owner. I spoke with Mr. & Mrs. W originally when we received their call late morning on November 9th around 10:30 AM. I arranged to meet Mr. or Mrs. W at their daughters apartment which had a bathtub overflow and saturated not only the apartment, but much of their daughters belongings, which were significant. I was in Ann Arbor and waited for several hours, but Mrs. W was unable to meet until late in the afternoon. I then had one of our lead technicians, Dan, meet her there instead. I informed Mrs. W that I was unable to meet due to another scheduled appointment, but Dan would take care of them. We only were asked to work with the personal belongings of their daughter. The apartment complex was taking care of actual drying and mitigation efforts, even though we did place a dehumidifier just to help control the environment. We quoted the W's a price upfront which explained what we would be doing and then worked with Mrs. W and their daughter on the job. Often times these jobs are difficult to estimate since we were dealing with a substantial amount of contents. We ordered a dumpster as well as a portable storage container and proceeded to remove items the W's wanted thrown away as well as saved the items they wanted to keep in the storage unit. In the end, the W's said they were pleased with our work. We have a customer satisfaction form that we get signed for every job. It asks the following questions and we received the following responses: 1. Are you satisfied with the work that was done? YES 2. Was the technician polite? YES 3. Would you use our company again? YES 4. Was the technician helpful? YES Additionally, the customer wrote the following comments: "Everyone went over the top to help in every way possible." I just left a message for Mrs. W prior to responding to this review. We work very hard to get the reviews we always get, mostly 5's and an occasional 4. We regularly receive the Super Service Award from Angie's List. I'm anxious to speak to Mr. or Mrs. W to make sure we clear up any misunderstanding to ensure they remain satisfied with our work. Sincerely, Fred Arthur President 1-800 Water Damage of SE Michigan

Review by in Ypsilanti, MI
very nice and professional team. very prompt. I did not receive an estimate up front. therefore I was a little shocked when I saw my invoice. I have had the same water damage, same area, same equipment used in the past. and the cost was much much less to have done... I would hire them again if needed tho. only I will get estimate up front..

Review by in Ann Arbor, MI
We couldn't be more impressed with the 1-800-Water Damage Southeastern Michigan team. They set the bar in their industry through unrivaled expertise, professionalism, value, and integrity. Our story: We had extensive water damage from pipe failure in our kitchen. Keith Kilroy was out there within the hour. We were immediately impressed by their insight into the nuances of the problem. Justin and others on the team rapidly implemented a mitigation strategy with surgical precision. They were life savers. We spoke with some of their competitors who both proposed expensive highly destructive mitigation plans that could have incurred tens of thousands of dollars of damage. In contrast 1-800 Water Damage was able to access and clear every inch of our house reached by water while preserving expensive cabinets, granite, and other home structures we wished to save. This team knows their trade and was just a delight to work with. Truly lifesavers. We can't say enough good things about them. A+.

They came immediately. Very friendly, professional, and very quickly diagnosed the problem (much to my dismay~but they were correct).

Review by in Ann Arbor, MI
Steve and his crew were very professional and hard working. They took precautions to protect us and our home from the attic mold while they removed it. They were very kind to our pets and tolerated several "security breaches". I think what I most appreciated was the honesty regarding what mold remediation work can accomplish - no false promises. I highly recommend them.

1-800-Water Damage helped me get through a tough situation. I had a water pipe explode in my crawl space and the mess was promptly cleaned up by these guys. Now, crawl space is currently dry and has been restored to a good condition. Great work!

Review by in Canton, MI
Fred called me almost immediately I entered my emergency service request to dry-out the condo after a water leak from the refrigerator water supply that flooded kitchen and living room. He was very agreeable to work within my budgetary limitations and we agreed on the cost quickly. After that, his team showed up within an hour at the premises and started the dry-out process. His client service skills are outstanding; he constantly kept me up to date with the progress. He also provided me with a detailed service statement that explained the work done; which will help me when I sell the condo. Overall a great experience, strongly recommended.

Fred and team were life savers. They came before we even knew insurance would cover us and got to work and were back first thing the next day. They were very extremely helpful, informative, and reliable. I hope I don't need them again, but if I do they are my first choice.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
