“After I called Icon, they showed up in half an hour and patiently walked me through the whole process. I didn’t have to hire a second company to do the construction after they removed all the wet stuff like I have had to do in the past. They worked directly with my insurance company so I didn’t have to do a thing, other than let them in to work. I highly recommend this company. I was very impressed.” – Kayla H.

What immediate steps should I take if I detect flood & water damage?
The first thing you should do is call ICON Property Rescue at 513-426-6767 to immediately dispatch a water technician. Next, shut off the water source or close the water main. Avoid basements with standing water or sewage. Be sure to stay away from any obvious electrical hazards. Lastly, you may want to place aluminum foil under the legs of your furniture (to prevent staining) and remove all books, draperies, shoes, etc. from the wet floor.
Will my insurance cover water damage cleanup or do I have to pay?
If the water damage was sudden and accidental, the clean-up and dry-out is usually covered by a standard property owner’s policy. We can help with a pre-claims assessment.
How long will it take for the water damage to be cleaned up?
Water will be extracted and removed the same day we arrive. Dry-out can take a few days depending on the severity of the areas that were affected.
How long does it take for the water damage to create mildew?
Water damage can start to produce mildew in as little as 24-48 hours. It is important to contact a water restoration technician as soon as possible in order to prevent further damage.

Flooded basements and crawlspaces can present more challenges than normal rooms. Basements are the lowest point in a home and tend to flood first during any kind of water damage emergency. Water intrusions can occur in basements from sources inside and outside the home. Excessive rain can over saturate the ground, resulting in hydrostatic pressure, which occurs when moisture outside of the basement or foundational wall exceeds the pressure inside. Water will naturally seek the lower pressure, resulting in leaks and even cracks. Hidden moisture can lead to mildew that can invade and ruin your stored contents and valuables. Our job is to detect the water in your basement quickly and handle the water removal completely. Do not wait to call if you have basement water damage.
If you have found yourself dealing with sewage damage, we also provide safe sewage cleanup and sewage removal. Our team of professionally certified experts have years of experience resolving various sewage cleanup and repair problems. Raw sewage is difficult to cleanup and can be extremely hazardous. In addition to the foul stench, an array of other problems such as fungi, viruses and other pathogens can create serious health hazards. It’s critical that you do not try to clean up a mess from broken pipes that are connected to a sewage line. Coming in contact with sewage can cause disease, destroy your valuables, and cause severe damage to your property. Only trained professionals with the right equipment should handle sewage removal.

The area has many remnants of this era with a 102-foot high Stone Water Tower as a familiar landmark which stands at the entrance to Tower Park. It was the 16th structure built on the grounds of the Military Reservation. It encloses a standpipe which has a capacity of 100,000 gallons, pumped from the Water District reservoirs just across South Fort Thomas Avenue. In 1890 when the military base was established, such provisions for water supply was necessary as there was no other water tower in this area. Cannons that were captured in Cuba’s Havana Harbor during the Spanish–American War rest on stone platforms in front of the Tower. The dates marked on these cannons, reflecting the date they were made in Spain, are “1768” and “1769.”
Fort Thomas is home to attractions such as the Highland Hills Park.
They did a great, thorough job. They were very kind and clear about the information they gave.
