“I’ve Got Water” – What To Do Immediately
BE PREPARED TO KNOW HOW TO RESPOND IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY/FLOOD SITUATION
Fresh Water Flood (from leaks, bursting pipes, washing machine overflows, hail or rainstorms):
Shut off source of water immediately. You may need to shut off main water supply temporarily.
Contact a plumber to fix pipes and stop leaking.
Attempt to drain or pump out excess water as quickly as possible. The longer water stays, the more problems that can occur with rotting, damage to walls and furniture.
If there is standing water, beware of electrical problems.
Have excess water expertly removed by a certified, professional restoration company immediately. Attempting to use a portable rental unit will not have sufficient extraction to remove all the moisture from the affected areas. Professional drying equipment will eliminate all moisture. It is also imperative to have all the affected areas sprayed with a microbial disinfectant to reduce harmful bacteria and eliminate odor problems.
Move valuables, heirlooms and salvageable goods to a dry place.
Make a record of any damaged items. It is important that you carefully record your loss of any and all items of value so that you can make a valid claim for them when you are settling with your insurance company. Whether you are covered or not, Magiclean will dry and restore your loss and save you money.
Call your insurance company and schedule an appointment for your adjuster to come to your home and verify the damage.
Leave drying fans and cleanup equipment in place until final inspection by a Restoration Technician. Moving or shutting off fans can cause problems, such as mold, mildew and odor problems. An area may seem dry to touch but may still have moisture – A moisture probe should be used to test an area to ensure complete dryness.
