Help! What to Do When You Find Water Damage

(561) 405-9068

Finding water damage can quickly ruin a person's day. The thing is, water tends to strike when you really don't expect it. It can leave behind a lot of destruction when it happens.

If you've stumbled across water damage, check out these tips for what to do next.

Stop the Water Damage

The first thing you need to do is find the source of the water. If this is old damage, there may still be a problem, which means it's important to take a look and figure out just what led to the damage you are seeing.

In some cases, there will be water flowing so it will be obvious. Other times, you might just notice something like a water stain and need to investigate the root cause.

In order to prevent further damage, you've got to stop the water and fix the issue.

Start Removing Water

The next step would be to start drying things out and removing water. If you have standing water, you need to be very careful about following certain safety precautions before entering the water.

If you have personal belongings and valuables that are submerged in water, we recommend moving those out and away from the water as much as you can.

You also need to start drying things out. Hang things to dry as much as possible. Take advantage of sunshine outdoors if there is any. Use fans, dehumidifiers, and open windows to help remove water and dry things out. A professional company will have industrial equipment to help with this process.

Check with Insurance

It's possible that your water damage claim might be covered by insurance. This will completely depend on your policy. If it is covered, you will need to get with your insurance to get the process started.

If you work with us at Restoration Xperts, we have an internal claims team to help you navigate the insurance process as well.

Inspect Water Damage

Next, it's time to take a look around and assess the damage. What will need to be replaced? When you're inspecting the damage, look at personal belongings and furniture that needs to be repaired, but also look at structural restoration.

It is important to thoroughly inspect all surrounding areas and consider what parts of the home will need to be restored and repaired from damage. You should also take into consideration the possibility of mold and have the area inspected for this as well.

Any water damage restoration company should be able to help you through the inspection and analysis of what needs to be replaced, repaired, or restored.

Start the Restoration Process

From there, the restoration and repair work can begin. In most cases, you will work with a professional company for this part of the process, if you didn't have one already involved.

With any luck, your home will be returned to its pre-damage condition in no time!
