What To Do
- Find out where the source of the water is coming from and try to stop it by either turning off the main water line (usually found in the basement utility room) or controlling the flow with multiple towels and/or buckets.
- Remove anything that will be affected by moisture.
- Call a flood damage remediation professional (you can find local companies through internet search). Make sure they are certified by asking for their certification number (usually an IICRC number).
- Call your insurance company to guide you through the next steps. Most insurance companies encourage calling in a professional first to prevent further water damage. (Note: You have the right to choose the company of your choice)
- Moisture detection in all areas to determine the extent of the damage. (This may be more than visibly noticeable). We use moisture meters to determine where the water is and how much moisture has soaked into drywall, wood and flooring.
- Water extraction. We use powerful vacuums with special tools that extract water directly from flooring. Then we remove any baseboards and/or drywall that has excess moisture.
- Drying Equipment. We will place blower fans and commercial dehumidifiers to aid in quickly evaporating the remainder of the water.
- Equipment Monitoring: As IICRC professionals, our certified technicians schedule 1-3 repeat visits to take moisture meter readings until the areas are completely dry.
