The Water Damage Process

Step One:

Locate The Source

We want to limit damage as much as possible, chances are if you found water damage, it's not immediately after the fact. You'll want to locate the source by checking pipes, windows, walls, behind objects. If at all possible, stop or limit the source. In some circumstances, this may be turning the water off to the entire property. *If there is standing water, do NOT enter the area until the power to the area is off. Electrocution is a risk.

Step Two:

Assess & Limit the Damage

We want to limit the damage as quickly as possible. Turn off the power to the area, if water reaches the outlets or exposed wires it could cause electrocution. To prevent further damage, take the necessary steps to remove your belongings from the area. Remove valuables to an area that was not exposed to water or somewhere safe.

Step Three:

Call Your Insurance Company

When the situation is under control and there is no immediate danger, contact you insurance company. Starting this process will give you a better idea of what's covered and how to proceed. At this point it's a good idea to take pictures of the damaged area and belongings so there are no issues down the line. 

Step Four:

Give Us a Call

This is where we come in, give us a call, from there we'll come assess the situation and get started on the remediation and drying.

Water Damage

 

Water damage is among the most common types of damage we come across, with approximately 70% of all property damage being water damage. It affects most of us at least once through our lifetimes. Of all the types of restoration, water damage demands a quick approach to clean up. The longer water has to sit, the more damage it causes. Long term, it can cause major possession, interior and structural damage as well as mould growth which can lead to allergens and health risks. Unsanitary water often makes problems worse. To reduce harmful effects, quick action must be taken when water damage is experienced. The first 24 hours are critical and cleanup should be started as quickly as possible.

Often times, water damage can be reversed successfully, however, water damage is not to be taken lightly. It takes appropriate evaluation to determine what should be repaired or replaced. This decision is based on the degree of contamination, amount of contamination and analyzing replacement versus restoration costs. Potential health risks, safety and heirlooms or irreplaceable items are also taken into consideration. Often times the objects important to us can be cleaned, repaired and kept. We use high quality testing equipment and thermal imaging to determine proper steps and drying techniques to use. Flood cleanup and drying should be left to professionals for health, safety and proper drying techniques. There are however, some things each homeowner can do to lessen damage when experiencing a flood.
