Whether you’ve got a burst pipe, a leaky roof, or have suffered flooding, water removal is no small task. From removing standing water to recovering and repairing water-damaged materials, it’s a big project that requires a calculated effort.

What to Do When You Need Water Removal

Here’s what to do when you need water removal:

  • Assessment and Safety. If you have standing water in your home, the first step is to assess the situation and evaluate safety concerns. Be especially mindful of the proximity of electrical sockets to the water. If it is safe to do so, shut off your power while you assess the area.
  • Stop the Source and Ventilate. If your water supply is the cause of the flood, shut off the water if you can do so safely. Ventilation will aid the drying-out process while impeding mold growth.
  • Document the Damage.Take photos of as much as you can while staying safe. This documentation will come in handy when reaching out to restoration companies and filing an insurance claim.
