2. Turn off the
electricity. Disconnect power to impacted areas. Remember
water is a conductor of electricity; do not allow wet surfaces or
materials to come in contact with an electrical source. Shut off
your power if there is any risk. Do not use any electrical
appliances while standing on wet floors.
3. Call your
insurance. Your insurance agent will be
able to assist in submitting a claim but be sure to work with a
reputable flood damage repair and water damage repair provider. Be
sure to use someone who is recognized by your insurance provider;
failure to use a qualified provider often leads to rejection of
claims resulting in costly fees and out of pocket expenses.
Stop the water. If at all possible attempt to stop
more water from entering the home. Place barriers between gaps in
your home and the external water sources, such as boards, mats, and
other water stopping items.
Contents: Move wet contents to a dry place. Keep a
detailed list of anything you need to discard - this will help with
any insurance claim you need to make. Recoveron has the
personnel on staff to navigate through the contents process.
6. Extract the
water. Recoveron will have all the water and humidity
professionally extracted from your home including carpets,
furniture, drywall and other impacted areas.
Removal. Some items may not be salvageable and
will require appropriate disposal. Recoveron will be able to
assist in determining what is able to be fixed and what could be a
potential health hazard.
Repair. Flooding causes damage to many areas that
will require repairs; cabinets, walls, floors and furniture
frequently need extensive remediation after flood related damage
takes place. Recoveron has carpenters on staff to help
with all your repair needs.
Document everything. Recoveron will take pictures
and record notes on all activity related to the flood damage. We
will assist in submitting a claim to your insurance provider as
well as help in repairs and restoration
