Water Damage?

Water damage, even if it doesn’t result in flooding, can cause extensive damage to your home and possessions. Untreated water, such as rainwater or sewage water, can carry contaminants that can make you, your family, and your co-workers sick. Damp walls, flooring and upholstery are the perfect places for mould and mildew to flourish, creating health and structural problems of their own. To avoid having your water damage turn into a nightmare here is a guide from the experts at 24/7 Restoration to dealing with the situation:

  1. Find the culprit
    The first thing you want to know is where the water is coming from. An overflowing washer or a left on tap contain clean water, whereas an overflowing toilet or a backed up sump pump will contain dirty water. Figure out where the water is coming from so that you can give as much information as possible to the experts when you call them

  2. See if you can do anything
    You can turn off a left on tap to help mitigate the damage, but an overflowing toilet or burst pipe is harder to deal with. Remove any possessions that you can from the affected area, and wash and dry anything like soaked clothes as soon as possible. Lay down towels to help absorb as much water as possible. If the water is dirty enough to pose a health hazard just stay away and leave it for the experts to deal with.

  3. Call the Experts
    Don’t delay, call the experts at 24/7 Restoration as soon as possible. The quicker the cleanup can begin the less damage there will be. Water left in soft materials such as walls, fabric and carpet encourages mold and mildew growth, creating a whole new set of problems. If you live in a rental property consult with your landlord first.

  4. Make alternate arrangements
    Depending on the nature and severity of the water damage you may need to find another place to stay tonight. The experts at 24/7 Restoration will let you know if your home is uninhabitable or your business will need to close during the cleaning and repair process. Call friends and family or book a hotel room.

If your home or business experiences water damage don’t delay, contact 24/7 Restoration as soon as possible. Call our 24/7 emergency line at 403.247.4365 and visit 247restoration.ca for more information.
