My Home Is Flooded! I Need Emergency Restoration – What Must I Do?

When flood damage occurs, fast and appropriate response can prevent further devastation and keep emergency restoration costs down. The first priority when responding to flood damage is to find the water intrusion and stop the source to prevent more damage.

You may be able to reduce some of your losses by moving your possessions to an area that’s not affected by the flood so they can start drying. Before you do this, however, contact our emergency restoration professionals, as well as your insurance company, to report the incident. The quicker our home restoration experts can get there to mitigate the loss and formulate a scope for repairs, the better.

On arrival, our technicians will assess the situation. We will need to know exactly how much damage the water has caused to your home. With the help of moisture mapping and moisture reading equipment, we can then put a drying protocol in place. Typically, the emergency restoration process starts by finding the source, removing damaged items, and applying treatment for mold prevention.

The drying process includes the use of industrial fans that are designed to force air out from behind tight spaces to help ventilation and speed up the drying time. Other methods utilized for drying may include air movers and dehumidifiers.

Nobody wants to deal with the aftermath of flood damage. Being prepared when it does happen and knowing what to do afterwards will eliminate much of the uncertainties and stress involved. Working with an expert emergency restoration company like us at Spangler Restoration will make a huge difference in restoring your home.
