One of the most devastating events to a home is water damage and what it does to a property. Home and property owners must use urgency before it leads to bigger issues, such as mold and bacteria due to the flooding water staying longer inside the property. Additionally, water can damage the walls, the wooden floors, the heating, and air conditioning system; it can ruin carpets, and furniture. Professional equipment is required to pump and empty the water from your residence.
We have all the knowledge and the tools to restore your house back into a hazard-free, clean and inhabitable space in compliance with the required health codes and environmental laws. Don’t wait! Take action and contact us at Restorerz, as quickly as possible.
In The Meantime: Before The Restoration Crew Arrives
Unsanitary water, burst pipes, the washing machine, or natural events and disasters such as excessive rainfall contribute to water finding its way into your residence and flooding the interior, causing major damage. The longer it stays untreated, the bigger the damage and after-effects such as mold, bacteria, health hazards, diseases, and of course, the destruction of personal items.
The first thing you should do is contact a professional restoration team like Restorerz to arrive at your place and start the recovery, clean up process, and start restoring things as soon as possible. But there are important steps you can take while a professional restoration crew is heading your way.
- Identify electrical and slippery floors and surfaces. Try to distance yourself from them and avoid additional danger.
- Only when safe, open all doors and windows to let out the excess water and use fans to start drying the affected areas. Our team will come equipped with more powerful equipment to tackle the damage professionally and speed up the process and apply expert techniques.
- Use mops and towels to soak in the water and/or push it out.
- Use towels and absorbing cloths to dry wooden items.
- Collect smaller items on top of shelves and tables to help save them from water damage or being washed away.
- Find a place (if possible) to hang carpets, clothing and similar items to dry.
- Use other waterproof, water-resistant items to keep water from reaching or affecting other parts and items in the house.
