Restoration 1 Tips On What To Do If Your House Floods

Did you know that 14,000 people in the U.S. experience a water damage emergency at work or home daily? The average cost of a water damage insurance claim is $7000! During storms and hurricanes, there is always the risk of flooding. This can happen quickly or overnight. Either way, it is a disruption to your home or work life. No one likes for their home or business to be full of water with rugs soaked, walls wet, and valuables ruined. It can be a frustrating process to figure out where to even start to remedy the problem. The first step is to take a breath. Everything will be okay. At Restoration 1, we hear you and are standing ready 24/7 to help you understand what happened, why it happened, and the best way to put your life and property back in order. We are your beacon of light in life’s storms.

What To Do Immediately If Your House Or Business Floods

  • Stop the water at its source, if you can.
  • Immediately turn off all electricity.
  • Grab some boots and waterproof clothing if you have them, as the floodwater could be contaminated.
  • Keep your hands away from your face while you survey the damage safely.
  • Do not enter your home or business if you believe it's no longer structurally safe, call Restoration 1 to assess this for you.
  • Take pictures of everything from where you can safely enter.
  • Start documenting the damage room by room, only if you can enter safely.
  • Remove as much standing water as you can.
  • Remember, water can penetrate structural cavities so it can travel through floors, ceilings, and walls. You may not even notice this has occurred and remember that it can take time to correctly and thoroughly dry out these areas.
  • This is when you need your home properly inspected by a Restoration 1 local professional. They will use moisture meters to determine undetected moisture, leading to mold and your home materials splitting, shrinking, and deteriorating over time. A wood stud that is dry to the touch could still be wet in the middle.
  • The sooner you have your home professionally dried out by our experts, the less chance of having mold. Our experts may need to remove flooring, carpet padding, insulation, and drywall structures to begin the drying and decontamination process. This could include dehumidifiers and large industrial fans.

In closing, there are industry standards and health recommendations in place for your safety. Our Restoration 1 professionals are trained to follow these standards and go over them with you, to clearly explain the process and set your mind at ease. Below is a ‘Disaster Flood List’ for you to follow should your home be in the path of floodwaters.
