Whether you basement is flooded, you had a water line break and your living room carpet is soaked, or you have water coming in through your roof, water damage can seriously disrupt your life while causing damage to your Wichita home. Water damage should always be reason for concern, and improperly or insufficiently performing water damage cleanup can do more harm than good.
When you have water damage in your home, hiring an experienced company with the right tools and equipment to quickly and efficiently remove the water and dry the structure can prevent secondary damage from occurring. Water damage is an emergency, and you should expect a water damage restoration company to respond at any hour to begin cleanup.
You should always ask about previous experience and the training and certifications the restoration technicians have received.
Make sure that the source of the water has been turned off, or that no more water is entering the home. Avoid walking on wet carpet to prevent damage, and always make sure that there is no risk of electrical shock. Furniture can be protected by placing aluminum foil or plastic containers under the feet. Small, undamaged items can be moved to another area of the home.
If you have not contacted your insurance company to open a claim, you should do this. If your loss is covered by insurance, we will work directly with them on the details of your claim. Do not throw anything away until it has been documented for insurance purposes.
