Take Action Now by Following These Important Steps
- Stop The Source of Water: The water should be shut of from the main line at the house until a plumber can locate and repair the leak.
- Protect Yourself from Electrical Shock: So protect your family first. Locate your electric panel, turn off outlet breakers. Most often you will find the breaker panel on the exterior garage wall between your home and your neighbors’.
- Furniture Moving: Once you are safe from danger, call our 24 hour emergency service hotline. Our emergency crews will carefully remove furniture for the affected areas and protect with plastic. Prior to our arrival, light furniture and nick knacks should be moved to an unaffected area. Place aluminum foil or plastic under each leg to protect unaffected flooring from furniture stain that can bleed and cause a permanent damage.
- Moisture Detection: We will use moisture sensing tools to track and locate the extent of damage. Often water will flow into hidden areas behind baseboards, walls and through, carpet, pad and various other flooring materials that you may not be aware of. Our emergency crew will locate and set up an appropriate drying process to address all of these concerns.
- Risk Assessment Associated With Asbestos And Lead: Homes built prior to 1978 may have lead in paint and asbestos in various building materials. We will take the appropriate steps to identify and remove these hazardous materials safely and responsibly.
- Contents and Area Protection: Protecting your contents and living space from dust and debris is a priority. Plastic will be used to protect non affected areas from dust and debris.
- Remove Wet Materials:Depending on the water source, most wet materials will be removed and bagged for disposal. Professional assessment is used to determine what is appropriate. All standing water is extracted and properly disposed of.
- Removal of Bagged Debris: All demo debris will be removed from the property and properly disposed of. Our crew will clean and vacuum the area leaving it as mess-free as reasonably possible.
- Treat Affected Areas With Disinfectant As Appropriate: We request your permission and will provide you a material safety data sheet (MSDS) prior to application of disinfectants.
- Equipment Set Up, Run 24/7: The equipment is designed to run throughout the entire drying process. Turning off the equipment or not contacting us should the equipment turn off for no apparent reason will extend the drying process. Please contact our office if any equipment malfunctions or a circuit breaker trips. PLEASE KEEP CHILDREN AND PETS AWAY FROM THE AREA AT ALL TIMES.
