When Do I Need to Call a Professional Flood Repair and Restoration Service?
Like any water damage event, you will need to bring in professional help for nearly any flood event that:
- Saturates upholstered furniture or carpeted surfaces
- Touches drywall or other porous building materials
- Leaves a pool of standing water on porous surfaces
- Is in a space that is not well ventilated, like a basement or crawlspace
What Caused My Flood?
Flooding is an unfortunate, yet common occurrence. From an overflowing washing machine to a relentless thunderstorm or hurricane, there are many events that can cause a flood, including:
- Faulty plumbing
- Water heaters
- Leaks from appliances (garbage disposals, dishwashers, toilets)
- Sump pump failures
- Storm drain backups
- Natural disasters
- Ice dams / leaky roofs
My Home or Businesses Flooded. What Should I Do First?
If you’ve just discovered a flood, the time for action is now. Even a small flood can cause expensive and long-term damage to your home or business. Water damage is progressive, pervasive and valuable objects can become permanently damaged – especially if emergency response is delayed beyond the first 48 hours.
Delayed response can also lead to mold growth if any water-soaked materials like carpet furniture or drywall aren’t removed or properly treated in place in a timely manner.
Pre-restoration Steps Take on Your Own as Soon as You Detect a Flood
- Determine the location and cause of the flood. If your entire home is flooded by a natural disaster contact local emergency first responders or FEMA to determine if is safe to return to your neighborhood. If your basement or a single area of your home has flooded, the rest of your home is likely safe to enter.
- Shut down the electrical breaker in damaged areas before unplugging or removing any electrical devices from the wet carpet or submerged areas.
- If the flood has been caused by a leaky appliance or plumbing issue, turn off the water via your homes main water valve and turn off the appliance. If you can’t stop an active leak yourself, call a plumber.
- Begin removing standing water. Any water over an inch in depth must be removed immediately or by remediation professionals ASAP. Remove water using shop vacuums (wet-dry vacuums), mops, etc. Do not leave the vacuum unattended while plugged in and be sure to follow all manufacturer safety instructions. Remember, electricity and water do not mix.
