You’re on a roll with the weekly chores. The carpets are vacuumed; the kitchen is cleaned; the bathrooms are sanitized and sparkling; and the laundry is in the washer. Unfortunately, when you go to check on the laundry, you discover that the floor has now become a sea of water. The only thing missing is a boat!

This scenario isn’t as uncommon as you may think. Most water damage is caused by malfunctioning appliances. When this happens, you’re left with the wet mess. That’s where we come in. The water damage cleanup professionals at ServiceMaster of Rochester are here to help Byron, MN, homeowners with all of their water damage needs.

Although water damage is stressful and discouraging, if you remain calm and act quickly, you can actually lessen the destruction to your home by following our tips below!

 

  1. Find the source of the leak. Is the water coming from an overflowing washing machine or is there a burst pipe somewhere nearby? Find the source of the leak and quickly turn off the water to that area. If the water is coming from a backed-up sewer, be cautious as sewer water has dangerous contaminants. Also, be cautious of any nearby electrical currents that could be deadly.
  2. Document the damage. Take pictures of the damage for insurance purposes. It’s important to document everything that has been affected by flooding in the home, from belongings to the structure itself.
  3. Remove water. Depending on how much water is flowing through your home, you may be able to remove it yourself by using a sump pump or a wet vacuum. However, if there is a large amount of water, contact a water damage cleanup team.
  4. Dry the area. Mold can begin growing within 24 hours. Any remaining moisture left after flooding can create the perfect environment for mold to being growing in carpets, on walls and ceilings, on belongings, and on the structure of the home. Because moisture can hide in otherwise inaccessible areas, it’s important to contact water damage clean-up professionals to dry out your home. The professionals at ServiceMaster of Rochester use infrared technology to detect moisture hiding in walls and ceilings. We also have industrial-grade fans to ensure any remaining moisture has been completely removed.
  5. Dehumidify the area. After the water has been removed, it’s important to use a dehumidifier to remove any moisture from the air to prevent mold from growing. Our professionals use industrial-grade dehumidifiers to remove excess moisture in the air, successfully returning your home to its pre-loss condition.
