Flood Services Canada, the Greater Toronto Area’s leading 24-hour response team, is announcing the completion of several remediation projects for many Toronto locations that suffered flood damage during the recent storms.
“Flood Services Canada received a number of calls from both residential and commercial clients looking for help,” describes Chad Vanvari, owner of Flood Services Canada. “Teams with portable and truck-mounted water extraction units were sent out to the downtown core, Brampton, Mississauga, Scarborough, and even Aurora. It was definitely an ‘all hands on deck’ sort of situation.”
Even after Environment Canada called off its thunderstorm warning last week, many streets and even the Simcoe underpass remained flooded. Adding to the water and growing concern among residents in the Greater Toronto Area were reports of a tornado appearing in nearby Huron County.

“It was a pretty busy and stressful evening,” Vanvari recalls, “but a company can’t succeed in this business if it’s unable to handle tough weather and emergency situations. As a 24-hour flood remediation company, it’s necessary to act fast, rather than waiting for the clouds to part.”
In addition to assisting homeowners and restoring storefronts, Flood Services Canada also performed water extraction and remediation on one of the luxury hotels that make up Toronto’s downtown.
“While Flood Services Canada doesn’t treat big business customers any differently, a hundred or so irate hotel guests tends to put an extra spring in one’s step,” Vanvari jokes.
“When it comes to large storms and quick responses, Flood Services Canada is a major player in the industry for a reason,” Vanvari concludes. “With our team of experts, we were able to save our customers a significant amount on potential damages and guide them through the insurance claim process, quickly helping to diffuse a stressful situation.”
Flood Services Canada is made up of several quick-response teams who are leaders in flood remediation, mould removal, and other loss prevention techniques. Their specialties include fire, flood, and sewage backup remediation and cleanup. In addition to remediation services, Flood Services Canada also assists customers with insurance claims. Special rates are offered for the uninsured.
