Tips for Dealing with Water Damage before Your Restoration Contractor Arrives

Water Damage – Leaking Roof

The easiest way to deal with water damage is to prevent it from happening in the first place. Clean your gutters and repair or replace any leaky windows. Keep any appliances that use water, such as your refrigerator or washing machine, in good working order.

But despite the best preparation, water damage does happen. After water damage has occurred, contact your insurance company’s claim hotline to begin the claims process. You will need to identify the source of the water damage prior to the call. After you speak to your insurance company, you call water damage restoration company Attics to Basements Building & Renovations to remove the water. Water must be removed as soon as possible.

While you are waiting on us to arrive, here are a few things you can do:

  • Call Attics to Basements Building & Renovations to get our team drying your home as soon as possible.
  • Do not go into any areas where electricity may have come into contact with water.
  • If there is any raw sewage present, avoid it.
  • If it is safe to do so, take pictures of the water and water damage.

If it is safe to do so, remove any electrical appliances from the path of the water. This will help you avoid future electric shock risks and possibly save your appliances.
