What to Do if Your Home Has Water Damage

What to Do About Water Damage

Water damage can happen for any number of reasons. If you are unfortunate enough to experience flooding in your basement or other areas of your home due to a burst pipe or a broken sump pump, you may wonder what steps to take next to start repairing the water damage.

 What to Expect When You Call in a Professional

When water damage happens, you need the help of a professional restoration team like those at Lamunyon Dry Out & Foundation Repair. Our water damage restoration team specializes in bringing your home back to normal after any type of water damage.

All instances of water damage are different. And all instances require a customized repair plan. However, you can expect to see some similarities with each restoration team. Here is what you can plan for during the restoration process.

  1. When you make your initial call to your water damage repair company the first step they will have you take is to shut off the water supply. This will prevent any additional flooding until the restoration team arrives.
  2. Once the professionals are on the scene, they will perform an in-depth inspection of your home and the affected area. This will allow them to create a specialized repair plan for your home.
  3. After the originating problem is identified, figuring out the extent of the damage comes next. Specialized tools are used to measure the moisture in the air, the amount of water that seeped into the floor and walls, and if water has affected any wooden fixtures in the area.
  4. Once the damage is assessed clean up can begin. 

What to Expect During Clean Up

Cleanup of water damage again depends on the severity of the flooding. While some jobs require just the use of a few small air movers, other jobs require complete demolition and remodeling of an area. Most commonly, you can expect to experience a few techniques.

  • Cleanup will begin by the removal of standing water. In addition to specialized equipment, water damage restoration companies will use truck mounted extraction equipment to remove excess water.
  • Air movers are also used to assist with the drying process. High powered air movers can dry carpet and drywall quickly. This still allow restoration crews the ability to work around them while repairing any damage.
  • Dehumidifiers are also used to remove any excess moisture from the air, which helps prevent mold and mildew growth.
