What to Do When Dealing with Water Damage in Your Brookfield Property

1) SAFETY FIRST! Turn OFF Electricity from the Electrical Box

Electricity is very dangerous. Electrical shocks can lead to permanent disabilities and death. So to stay safe, before you go near a water-affected area, find out where and how you can turn off the electricity in that area of the building. In case it is not possible, do not go into the affected area. In some cases, the water level can reach above the electrical sockets on floors and walls. When it is like that DO NOT TOUCH! Do not unplug any electrical devices until you are certain that the area is no longer connected to the electric grid. 

2) Stop the Water Source

The majority of the most common causes of water damage like broken supply lines and burst or faulty pipes usually have a water valve. If you know what is the source of the water, shut it off right away. If by any chance you do not know where the water valve is call your plumber and ask for their assistance in locating it. Professional plumbers will guide you through this process quickly and easily. This way you will prevent significant damages across your property, saving your possessions, time, and money. 

Once there is water present on your property, time is your worst enemy. Areas like ceiling tiles, surrounding furniture, carpets and rugs, wooden floors, drywall, and others are at risk of serious long-term damage. To prevent that they need to be treated quickly by a water restoration professional.

3) Call A Professional Restoration Company AND Your Insurance Company

If you shut the power off, as well as the water supply, you should call your locally trusted water restoration professionals like A&J Property Restoration. By reaching out early you can save your Brookfield WI property from significant amounts of water damage.

As soon as you get off the phone with us, your next call should go straight to your insurance provider. Submit your claim early and have it ready for the restoration company upon their arrival.

4) Take Pictures of the Damaged Area(s)

Take as many pictures as you can. This step will help both you and your insurance provider to keep track of your insurance claim. If, and only if, the area is safe and secure take photos of the source, as well as all the affected areas like walls, ceilings, electronics, and any other items that you intend to list on your insurance claim. 

5) Remove All Light or Movable Items

Water can quickly infiltrate into porous materials making them significantly heavier. While keeping your health and safety in mind, you can start moving light movable furniture that might be in the way of the water restoration process. In the case, that water oversoaked them and made them too heavy protect your back and leave them to the water restoration professionals. Remember, always keep your own personal safety as the #1 priority.

6) Remove the Water

It is nearly impossible to remove all the water manually but even just reducing the amount will significantly help in minimizing damages. When trying to remove water, use a wet vacuum, towels, or a mop to remove as much of the water as possible, as quickly as possible. The moment our team arrives they will take over and remove whatever you personally could not.
