How to Handle an Emergency Water Damage
  • Water damage is one of the most serious
    emergencies that can happen to your home.
    Uncontrolled water has the potential to cause
    thousands of dollars in damage to your structure
    and contents.
  • Being prepared to deal with a water damage
    emergency is about knowing what to do when it
    happens and reacting fast to stop incoming water,
    protect people, pets and possessions, then begin
    the nasty task of cleaning up the mess.
  • Here are the 5 main steps for dealing with a
    water damage emergency.

Step 1 Stop the Source of Water Ingress
  • The biggest cause of water damage emergencies is
    a burst hot water tank or pressurized water line.
    Knowing where your shutoffs are located is
    critical for immediately stopping the water flow
    and getting control before the damage worsens.
  • Flooding often occurs from exterior storm water.
    Nature is impossible to stop but storm water can
    be diverted away from your house by blocking or
    damming the water run and by ditching. The most
    dangerous water floods come from backed-up sewer
    pipes. This is best left for a professional to
    stop.

Step 2 Think Safety
  • Shut off all electrical sources in the damaged
    area by snapping the circuit breakers or
    unplugging devices. Water is an excellent
    electrical conductor and a flooded home could
    easily deliver a serious shock.
  • Make sure all people are safely away from
    standing water especially curious children. Pets
    can also be at risk and need to be controlled in
    other areas.

Step 3 Protect Your Possessions
  • Remove or raise furniture, boxes and other
    valuables from the flood water. Water-soaked
    articles quickly begin to get moldy which is the
    beginning of rot.
  • Get your highest risk valuables out to safety
    where they can start drying in warm, moving air.
  • Dont worry about carpeting or other flooring as
    well as baseboards or door mouldings. Protect
    your precious valuables first. Other things can
    be replaced.

Step 4 Contact Your Insurance Company
  • The next practical step is to contact your
    insurance company and find out how theyll
    approach the water removal and flood restoration.
  • Insurance companies have professionals who
    specialize in water damage restoration that they
    can call on for emergencies and pay them as part
    of your coverage.
  • Attempting your own water removal and restoration
    may compromise your policy and leave you with
    unnecessary expenses.

Step 5 Work With the Professionals
  • Work with a water damage restoration professional
    to remove flood water and begin the drying
    process. Restoration professionals have the
    proper industrial equipment like pumps, air
    movers and dehumidifiers to extract flood water
    and related humidity.
  • They also have moisture detectors, hygrometers
    and remote cameras to find trapped residual water
    that you, as a homeowner, cant locate. Water
    that remains behind walls and in tight places
    will cause you grief for years to come.
