The past few weeks have been fraught with storms and excessive downpour. We’ve unfortunately all had to deal with gusts of wind knocking out our power or having to drive extra safe because of wet roads, but some of us have it worse than others. If you’ve experienced water damage in your home, you know what a headache water damage cleanup can be. ServiceMaster of Baltimore is just a phone call away, but we also want to offer some tips on how to start your path to recovery.
Drying It Out
Your first step in water damage cleanup is to call a local disaster recovery team. It’s imperative that you get any impacted areas as dry as possible as quick as possible. This means removing soaked carpets and furniture and setting up large industrial fans and dehumidifiers to dry the area out. You simply cannot put this off. Letting the water soak in even more will only cause even more extensive damage.
Contact Your Insurance Company
You’ll want to let your insurance company know as soon as possible. They’ll be able to send an adjuster out to assess the damage and document that you took the proper steps to get everything dry. This will be an important point of contact as you’ll be working closely with this person as an adviser and advocate during your water damage cleanup.
After the drying process is complete, it’s time to start the reconstruction process. Call a professional you know you can rely on. You’ll want to work within your budget that the insurance company allows you. It may take a while to get your home completely repaired depending on how extensive the damage was.
