Water Damage Restoration

Water can cause a significant amount of damage to your property in a very short period of time. A broken pipe, overflowing toilet, storms and floods can all cause water damage to your property and belongings. Water damage must be addressed quickly to prevent additional problems and to avoid mold growth.

Common Causes of Water Damage:

  • Burst or leaking water pipes
  • Plumbing malfunctions
  • Broken household appliances
  • Natural disasters and severe weather

Follow these easy steps to begin drying your home:

  • Start by opening doors and windows to let fresh air run through.
  • Wear a mask to protect yourself against possible mold, mildew and allergens.
  • Disconnect the power, unplug any electronics, and remove electronics, furniture and movable items immediately. 
  • Remove as much water as possible. Use old towels, buckets and mops to soak up as much water as possible.
  • Dry out the area. Once you have removed all of the water, use fans and a dehumidifier to help dry out the area.
  • Disinfect. After the area has dried out, including wood beams, insulation, drywall, etc., use a good disinfectant to get rid of any bacteria that might have come up through sewers, toilets, etc.
  • Dispose of damaged items. You’ll be tempted to throw everything into a dumpster and call it good. But if you can organize damaged goods into piles and recycle what you can, you will help alleviate the pressure on your local landfill site.

Water Damage Hazards

  • Gas leaks –If you smell gas, leave the house right away and then contact your utility company immediately.
  • Chemicals –When you get to the cleaning stage, be sure to ventilate well and limit your exposure to contact and exposure as best you can. Cleaning may expose you to a wide range of contaminant from cleaning agents and those that may have entered from floodwaters.
  • Electrical Shock – In a wet basement there is a legitimate risk of electrical shock. Do not utilize and outlets that were affected.
