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

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

Before you go into an area, find out if you can turn off the electricity in the affected area of the building. If you cannot, do not venture into the space. In cases when the water level is above the electrical sockets on floors and walls, DO NOT TOUCH! Only after electricity is turned off, you can unplug all electronics to ensure that you will avoid shock.

2) Stop the Water Source

If you know the source of the water, especially if it is a burst or faulty pipe, broken sprinkler system, or a broken supply line in a coffee maker or a refrigerator, shut off the water right away. Locate your water valve and shut down the water supply. This will prevent significant damages across your property. Immediately call a plumber if you do not know how or where to find the water shut off. Professional plumbers will guide you through this process quickly and easily.

If the water damage has already occurred, time is your worst enemy. Areas like ceiling tiles, surrounding furniture, carpets and rugs, wooden floors, drywall, and others are a risk of serious long-term damage if not treated quickly by a water restoration professional.

3) Call A Professional Restoration Company AND Your Insurance Company

Your next step is calling your trusted water restoration professionals like A&J Property Restoration. The faster you call us, the quicker we will get started on dealing with water damage on your Madison property.

While our team of professionals is on the way, 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 will help you and your insurance company throughout the insurance claim process. When possible, without endangering yourself, take photos of the source as well as the affected area like walls, ceilings, electronics, and any other item you would like to list on your insurance claim (if applicable).

5) Remove All Light or Movable Items

While keeping your safety in mind, you can start moving light movable furniture that might be in the way of the water restoration process. Water soaks items and makes them very heavy. If you are struggling to move items, leave them for the technicians. Always keep your own personal safety as the #1 priority.

6) Remove the Water

When trying to remove water, use a wet vacuum, towels, or a mop to remove as much of the water as possible. Restoration technicians will be able to remove the water but any immediate actions will help reduce additional damages.

Do not sit on a problem and let it grow…

The longer the water sits, the greater the risk of mold and rot. 

Even if the walls feel dry to touch, the chances are there is water infiltrated inside the material which will result in serious long-term damage like mold and rot. If you experience water damage and didn’t hire a professional water damage restoration company, chances are that you will have to deal with that later on.

It is necessary to have the proper tools, drying equipment, and restoration cleaning experience to determine that the area is dry and mold growth will not follow. Contact us today to avoid future headaches and save yourself precious time and money.
