Don’t stress, This is How to Handle Water Damage.

11/15/2021 (Permalink)

How to Approach Unwanted Water Taking these steps will help ensure you don't have to worry about water damage to your home.

Okay, close your eyes. Imagine you are getting home from a long day at work, and you are going downstairs to grab a bag of chicken nuggets that your screaming kiddo wants for dinner. You are already one hay straw away from having a total meltdown. As you step off the bottom step and into standing water up to your ankles. This is when you shouldn’t stress because SERVPRO is here to help you. 

Step 1: Call Your Insurance Agent

This is important as this is what will get the ball rolling. When you call your agent, you will tell them you have a claim to call in. 

Step 2: Find the Source

A lot of times, people will associate a leak with heavy rain or storms. Here are a few other ways that you can have a flood in your home: 

  1. Broken pipe
  2. Pipe burst due to cold weather
  3. Overflowing toilet or sink
  4. Crack in the foundation 

Once you find the source, you can be able to provide essential information for our team. If you are part of our Emergency Ready Profile app, you will be able to pull up critical information about where you can locate the water shut-offs. 

Step 3: Call us at SERVPRO; we got you!

After calling one of our 24/7 call representatives, they will have someone there as soon as possible. Our Project Manager will look at the current state of the accident and provide clear information to our technicians on how they should go about remediation. Some of the information they will tell their staff is how many air movers, dehumidifiers, or shop vacs will be needed for the job with a precise location on where it should be sat. 

Step 4: Reconstruction?

Depending on the state of the emergency, you might need someone to come in and provide reconstruction services. Don’t worry; we still have your back. We can take on reconstruction services and specialized subcontractors to help complete any jobs from beginning to end. 

These are just a few steps you should take when dealing with water damage. What we strive for is a complete destress for our clients. We want to take on the project to ensure that you can have one thing taken off of your plate.
