One of the most frustrating moments for homeowners is when you end up with a water leak. Water in the home can lead to serious problems from mold and mildew growth to damage to appliances and other things. If you have been dealing with a leaky pipe or other water concerns, it is important to get them repaired as soon as possible. Summer repair is the best ideas as it will limit issues from occurring during the winter when a pipe could burst. Follow these tips if water damage is occurring in your home.
Stop the Flow of Water
Find the source of flooding and shut off water from continuing to lead to additional water problems. Contact our office right away and we will send a service technician as soon as possible to stop the flooding and begin the cleanup process.
Turn off the Power
Water and power never mix! If you have flooding, shut off the power immediately to prevent someone from becoming electrocuted. Do not touch appliances or walk in standing water if you are unsure if the power is still on.
Identify the Damage
Once you can get into the basement, take a look around to find out how bad things are. In some situations, it is easy to focus on repairing the issue while it could be difficult for others. Take pictures of the damage so you can submit them to the insurance company.
Protect your Assets
Start rescuing your assets. You need to try and save furniture and other items to try and limit them from becoming ruined. The longer items sit in water, the more damaged they will become.
