How to Clean Your Home After Water Damagewater restoration

Water damage is something that no home or business owner wants to encounter, however if and when it happens it is important to act quickly.  By acting quickly, you can save some of your belongings and will have the chance of minimizing the damages.

The following gives you a few tips on how to clean up after a flood:

  • Call your insurance company – The first thing you should do after any natural disaster is to contact your insurance company. If your coverage will take care of the damages your agent will have an adjuster contact you.  In the meantime, take lots of pictures or video.  Save all receipts and document all calls and conversations.
  • Be Safe – After the water recedes, the danger is not always over. Electrical systems may have shorted out, your home’s foundation may have weakened and the floodwaters may have left your home contaminated.  Be careful and when in doubt, throw things out.
  • Ask for Help – Some areas of your home might be okay with you cleaning it out yourself, but trying to save and restore your home from major water or flood damages, hiring a professional is the best solution.
  • Be Prepared – Since you have suffered from the devastation of flood waters once, now is a good time to start preparing incase this should happen again. Floodproofing your home can be done as you rebuild and restore your home.  As you rebuild use materials that can prevent or minimize flood damages in the future.
