Umpire did an outstanding job solving a moisture problem in our basement. Crafted and coordinated a solution that involved two other contractors. Problem solved for the long term---not just a quick fix. Highly recommend Umpire.

Very pleased! We used Umpire Mitigation to do mold remediation for the entire basement of our Vienna home. Stephen was extremely professional. From initial contact to completion, he responded quickly to questions and requests. We had hired an independent inspector to conduct air and surface samples and then create a remediation plan. Stephen and crew followed it precisely. The team was punctual, hard-working, and left area in good shape at the end of the day. Finished on time and on budget. Most importantly, the mold is gone (confirmed by retest of air and surfaces samples). Note: One year later, and the basement is still mold-free! We definitely recommend Umpire.

Umpire came highly recommended and we’ve worked with Stephen Simmons and his team three times this year. On each occasion, it was an absolute pleasure working with this company and we would happily recommend them to anyone looking for flooding remediation support!

Umpire Mitigation was there for us when our basement flooded. They came out the same day, were professional, compassionate, and knowledgeable. They made things very easy for us and they did great work. We highly recommend!

Quick response. Their voicemail system is amazing. The message says they will call back within 5 minutes and they do EVERY time. Steven is exceedingly helpful and provided great advice. He practically held my hand throughout the mitigation and kept me from going off the deep end. He was able to get workers in my basement the first day as well as arranging for dumpster and storage pod. I cannot say enough for Umpire.

Fantastic experience. Umpire Mitigation answered my call after business hours, spent significant time on the phone with me to assess my issue and define a path forward. Umpire then came out promptly to assess what was going on and provide a detailed opinion on next steps. Supremely customer focused. I highly, highly recommend Umpire Mitigation.

An amazing customer service experience in the midst of a very trying time! During a very busy season for Umpire, when they were scheduled for days, the owner came to our home to help us, NEXT DAY! He was very quick, extremely efficient, and happily took time to answer questions and provide additional helpful information. I would highly recommend Umpire!

There was some confusion on the total amount owed for services provided. The Owner agreed to waive the additional fee that was in question. I am happy with the resolution and the service provided. Would use again for similar services.

Stephen helped me with my basement flood in the most professional way possible! He was honest in his assessment of my problem, came out personally to do the water extraction and place the fans, and communicated well about the solution. His price was the lowest I found anywhere so we were pleased with the whole experience. He even moved some boxes the I had placed under my wet carpet to help them air out by himself without being asked and put them all away for me. Thank you Stephen!

Called Mr. Simmons after a flooding in my basement and they had a crew out that day. Tre and his crew got everything that needed to be pulled out quickly and got things drying quickly. Great Service!

Umpire worked on two projects for me in a short space of time. The simplicity of the pricing and ease of getting them on the job without any ‘hidden extras’ was really appealing and I will definitely use them again. I have absolutely no qualms in giving them five stars.

Stephen and his team saved the day and the house! They were at our home within an hour or two of our discovering the disaster we had on hand from a burst pipe. They were professional, thorough, careful and super easy to work with. Stephen’s crew, especially Troy, cared and took pride in their work. I would recommend them 100 percent!

We called Umpire for a water issue and within one day all of our problems were solved. The house was left clean and tidy and we couldn’t be more pleased with the professionalism and level of service. Highly recommend.

A well-deserved five stars. Stephen was amazing from start to finish after a busted frozen pipe flooded two floors of our business. He showed up almost immediately and spent nearly three days moving, cleaning, and clearing out the damaged rooms. He made an overwhelming experience less painful and got us up and running in time to open for business without needing to shutdown. He also followed up days later to make sure everything was ok. Great experience and would recommend him and his company without hesitation.
