While the water damage restoration company you call will dispatch technicians immediately, flooding still demands immediate attention from residence owners as well. ,You should take initial steps to protect your property from damage by attempting to identify the source of leakage and control/stop it if possible. When the technician arrives to your location, they’ll need to identify what type of inundation they are dealing with, the extent of flooding, the source of water, and the cause of seepage if not already identified by the property owner, delaying the water removal and restoration process. They will check whether emergency services are required to control the situation or not, and remove all furniture and other fixtures to protect them from water damage. Photos of damaged property will also be taken to secure your goods and help with insurance claims.
Next, your water removal company will survey the affected area and shut off the power for safety purposes. They’ll scrutinize the damage caused by the flooding and document each and every step. Finally, they pump out the water, dehumidify the atmosphere, and reconstruct the affected area restoring it back to its pre-loss condition.
