Flooding, if left unattended, can cause catastrophic damage to a home. From floods to leaky faucets, water damage is a serious problem and can cause major health issues. Call the professionals at Carpet Clinic when disaster strikes.
3 important things to do immediately:
STOP THE FLOW OF WATER.
If the flooding has been caused by a burst pipe or a water heater failure, shut off the main water line for your home.
Get in touch with an expert immediately if you cannot tell where the water is coming from.
RESCUE YOUR MOST VALUABLE POSSESSIONS.
If you are able to, find and remove your most important items from the flooded area, such as heirlooms, money, jewelry, photos, furniture, etc. Don’t spend too much time removing and cleaning individual items, as the water is still doing damage to your home. It is most important to get everything off of the flooded surfaces as quickly as possible. Be sure to protect the items from mold and deterioration by not stacking wet items together. If moving furniture from wet areas to dry carpeted areas, protect the dry areas from furniture stains with plastic or aluminum foil, or simply move it to a hard surface not affected by the water.
ASSESS THE DAMAGE.
Take ample photos and other documentation to show the insurance company. It is easier to compile this list as you go rather than trying to remember everything later.
