Whether your water restoration project is due to a busted pipe or a rain-flooded garage, water damage can be an incredibly daunting thing to deal with. Sifting through your possessions to decide what is salvageable and what isn’t can be absolutely heart-breaking, replacing ruined walls is time-consuming without the right tools and expertise, and cleaning up is far less than thrilling.
Luckily, there are people you can call for help. Sometimes a professional is what you need to get a job done right, and in the case of flooding, more than one may be needed.
Here are some of the types of businesses you may need to call in when water damage strikes.
Most homeowners insurance policies do not cover flood damage. However, depending on the type of flooding and your policy, you might get lucky. This would also be the time to take advantage of flood insurance if you happen to have it.
If your water issues were caused by your own pipes, it’s definitely time to call a plumber in. Turn your water off, clean up whatever you can, and call a professional in to help solve your water problems before they become serious.
Depending on where the flooding happened and how deep the water was, it may also be a good idea to have an electrician come and check everything out. If you suspect water had any way of getting into any of your electrical outlets, turn off your electricity and give the nearest trusted electrician a call right away.
Construction Company or Handyman
If your damage was bad enough to ruin walls or cause mold or mildew on walls or doors, you will need to bring someone out to replace drywall, doors, and possibly even framing. Don’t put this off. You definitely don’t want this problem to spread.
Clean-up is a terrible thing to have to do in the midst of all the repairs that must be done after a flooding incident. Hand that job over to a professional so you can be sure it is done correctly without ever lifting a finger.
