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

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

Electricity can kill. So to stay safe, before you go into a water-affected area, find out if you can turn off the electricity in that area of the building. If it is not possible, do not venture into the affected area. In some cases, the water level is 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

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

Once 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

As soon as the power is off, and the water supply is shut, you should be calling your trusted water restoration professionals like A&J Property Restoration. The faster you reach out to us, the sooner can we be there to start working on rescuing your Waukesha property.

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)

Pictures, pictures pictures. Take as many pictures as you can. This is a huge step that helps you and your insurance company throughout the insurance claim process. 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

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. As the water quickly soaks items and they can become very heavy, very fast. In those cases 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

You almost certainly won’t be able to remove all the water but even removing some of it will help to minimize the damages. When trying to remove water, use a wet vacuum, towels, or a mop to remove as much of the water as possible. As soon as our team arrives they will take over and remove whatever you personally could not.
