It doesn’t take much water to create chaos in your home. Floods come in all shapes and sizes, but each instance of water winding up where it shouldn’t can lead to serious home damage in just a few seconds.

Floods can happen due to heavy rain or from something simple like a malfunctioning washing machine, but each instance should be dealt with quickly to avoid worsening damage and further issues.

What to Do First
Suffering from a flood often elicits a feeling of helplessness as you watch water pour down your walls and onto your floors. If the flood is caused by a storm, there isn’t much you can do until the storm rolls on. Set out some buckets to catch any rain coming down from the ceiling and try to stay out of the water.

If the flood was caused by a malfunctioning appliance, find the appropriate water valve and shut it off to stop the flow of water. While you may not have been able to stop the current situation, you can prevent more water from flowing out onto your floor.

After that, step back and give us a call. Our team will start on your recovery right away, and we will ask you all sorts of questions to get a better idea of what happened. While you wait for us to arrive, you can certainly open some windows or run your fans to start the drying process.

What Happens When We Arrive

Our first goal for flooding situations is to get rid of the standing water. The longer water sits on your floor, the better the chance that it will eventually get behind your walls and cause structural issues and even stubborn mold infestations.

We come fully equipped with the equipment we need to dry up the water, and we will use our thermal imaging cameras to make sure there is no hidden moisture left behind.

Now we can focus on getting started on your repairs! Oftentimes, floods will cause your floors to warp, your drywall to become soggy and unstable and it can soak through your carpets and get into your subfloors. We will work meticulously through your home to make sure each area is repaired to your satisfaction and to ensure the safety of your family.

You deserve to recover faster after a flood. Call SERVPRO of Renton right away.
