When water damage strikes, you need to know who you can depend on. You already know not to let the moisture cause more damage, but how do you know when your situation is an emergency?
Take a look at this quick guide to understand when your water situation might be an emergency. Keep in mind that you won't call 911 for most of these emergencies, but rather an emergency line for a water or restoration crew.
Want to know a secret? Damage from moisture of any kind is almost always an emergency. You want to get that water out of the way as soon as possible and then get cleanup and restoration going as well.
The reason it's so important to act quickly is that water damage grows quickly. If the water is allowed to sit, you could easily end up with major issues, including foundational problems or mold.
So if you are experiencing a water situation or incoming water, this makes your situation an emergency as far as we are concerned. Here are some situations that might fall under a water emergency.
We do want to mention that if you have water-damaged areas that have just been festering for some time, this could still be an emergency. In these cases, the waters have most likely receded and you just need to repair and restore the damage. However, you might have major damage or even mold underneath there.
If you are unsure whether you truly have this type of damage or something else is going on, there are some specific signs of damage that you can look for.
If you notice that you have mold or water stains appearing, these are obvious signs that damage is occurring or has already occurred.
However, there are other signs that you may need to be aware of as they could lead to moisture damage in the future.
To be clear, this quick list is typically not an emergency unless it is producing significant water. However, it is a sign that a water emergency could happen at any time!
