What to do if you discover water damage in your home!
Water damage probably is not something you think about a lot, but it can happen surprisingly easily. Perhaps you got called away while a faucet was still running, or maybe a pipe burst in your kitchen. Flooding is a real risk for homeowners, too. If you find water has leaked or got into your home in any way, it is necessary to get it fixed as quickly as possible. Where should you start?
The first thing to do if you discover water damage in your home is identify the source of the water, and cut it off if you can. Try and do this quickly to prevent the problem from getting any worse. Stop up any leaks, shut off any running faucets, use sandbags towels as a barrier against flowing water on the floor.
Once you have identified and cut off the source of the water, what then? It is vital that you remedy any water damage as quickly as possible. If left unchecked, water can harm your home’s structure and furnishings, and encourage the growth of mold. Our water damage technicians are skilled at mitigating secondary water damage. This limits out of pocket expenses and reduces stress and inconvenience.
