Water Damage Restoration Services
- First and foremost – Don’t panic – Safety is your primary concern.
- Find the source of the water intrusion and stop it. Contact a licensed water damage restoration professional to remove and clean up the water to avoid further water damage. Mold can begin as early as 48 hours after a water damage has occurred. Check your homeowner’s insurance policy to see if you are covered for a water damage and/or mold coverage.
- If you encounter standing water, do not enter the room if the electricity is on.
- Do not use a household vacuum to remove the water. Relocate all wet items on floor to a safe location.
