When it comes to mitigating water damage, immediate action is key. A quick response will make all the difference in terms of restoration time and cost.

Immediate Action Is Key

Water clean-up should begin as soon as possible. The longer it sits, the worse the damage will be. First, contact a local professional that specializes in emergency restoration. At Decor, we have the resources to handle water damage in large commercial properties, as well as residential homes. Plus, our team of insurance specialists makes the claims process easy, should the damage be covered under your policy.

Our water damage restoration services include:

  • Water extraction
  • Advanced drying and dehumidifying
  • Surface disinfection
  • Content packing out, drying, and cleaning
  • Tarping and boarding up
  • Reconstruction

Safely Assess The Source Of The Water And The Extent Of The Damage

If the water source can be turned off without putting you, or anyone else in harm’s way, shut off the water. Otherwise, call for help and wait for them to arrive.

Water damage can come from any number of causes, including broken pipes or valves, sewage backups, appliances, clogged drains or toilets, floodwater, and more. The source will impact the amount of cleanup and damage.

Act Quickly To Mitigate The Damage

This is a critical step required to limit the amount of damage. If water is left to sit, it seeps into every surface. Mold can begin to grow in as little as 24 hours. We will take immediate action to stop the spread of damage by board up, tarping, water extraction, and dehumidification. Packing and removal of furniture may be required. This includes any contents that have been damaged so they can be properly cleaned and restored.

Properly dry out the property

We go to work with advanced drying equipment and technology to remove all water, quickly and effectively, from the property. Proper drying is the most critical step in deterring mold growth.

Effectively Clean And Restore To Pre-Loss Condition

All efforts will be made to restore the property to pre-loss condition. Depending on the source of the water, additional steps may be necessary to clean and disinfect surfaces and materials impacted. If items were removed for drying or extraction, everything will be replaced, and repairs will be made as needed.
