The Ultimate Guide To Dealing With Water Damage

Water damage house floating on life raft

Many things can happen and result in water damage in your home. Perhaps a burst pipe, a broken washing machine; you name it. Regardless of the cause, it’s crucial that you deal with the damage immediately. The longer you leave water damage in your home, the worse it will be. Bearing that in mind, we’ve come up with a guide that will help you understand what to when you have water damage in your home.

Shut Off Your Water Line

If something in your home caused your water damage, then it’s important you shut off the main water line in your home. This will stop any water from running, and mean you can contain the damage. If you keep it turned on, then you’re just asking for more trouble, and even more water to clean up.

Remove Residual Water & Dry Surfaces

The next thing you need to do is remove any residual water from your home. Get rid of it before it lingers for too long and causes further damage that may be irreversible. Once this is done, you have to dry any afflicted surfaces. Make sure your walls, floor, and ceiling are all dried thoroughly. Ideally, you should call a company in to do this for you. Bring in the experts, and they’ll be able to get rid of any water, and properly dry everything. The benefit of this is that they’re experiencing so will know a lot more than you do. They properly have drying techniques that work quicker and are more efficient too. Plus, they’ll have the technology to help detect moisture levels so they’ll know when they’ve dried everything.

Restore Any Items/Furniture

One of the biggest worries about water damage is that it ruins your personal belongings. Documents and furniture are the two most damaged things by water in the home. If you see signs of water damage on these items, then you need to get them restored. A professional restoration company can do all of this for you. They’ll dry out your items and make sure any damage is repaired. Then, you’ll get them back as though they were brand new.

Contact Your Insurance Provider

It’s vital that you get on the phone with your insurance provider as quickly as possible. You need to inform them of the incident so that they can check your policy. Typically, most home insurance policies will cover accidental water damage. This means that all of the repairs and restoration will be paid for. So, you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank when your home gets damaged by water. Of course, if you don’t contact your insurer, then you won’t know if you’re covered or not.

Follow these four tips and we promise you’ll deal with things in no time. Remember what we said right at the start of this piece; you need to act fast. Don’t wait around, bookmark this page and consult it if this problem ever happens in your home. It’s common for water damage to happen when you least expect it. With our help, you’ll be prepared for anything.

Embassy is so far above other places I’ve used that I regret not discovering them sooner. Not only is the quality of their service exceptional (right down to the hangers they use), but they’re also environmentally conscious, and so friendly. The service is efficient and they communicate well when your items are ready for pickup. I can’t say enough good things about them.
