How to Respond to Water Damage Milwaukee

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

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

2) Stop the Water Source

For a broken or a burst pipe, broken sprinkler system, broken supply line in a coffee maker or a refrigerator, shut off the water right away. Locate your main water valve and shut down the water supply. Like this, you can save your property from significant damage. If you do not know where the water valve is, call your trusted plumber who will guide you through the process to find one.

If standing water has already been present for a while, time is your worst enemy. Drywall, floorboards, carpets, furniture, all of that and more, soak up water quickly and will suffer serious secondary damages if not treated by a professional. Rot, mold, and structural instability are some of the most common consequences.

3) Call A Professional Restoration Company AND Your Insurance Company

As soon as you find water damage call a water restoration professional like A&J Property Restoration. We will dispatch a professional as soon as we receive your phone call.

While the restoration professional is on the way, your next call should be to your insurance broker or agent. Submit your claim early so that the rest of the process goes smoother.

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 staying safe, you can start moving light movable furniture that is on the way. While you might have been able to push your couch or other furniture before, after it has been soaked in water, they become significantly heavier. If you are struggling to move them, leave those items for the technicians. Keep in mind that your safety always comes first.

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 also help in reducing additional damages.
