First Action Steps When Dealing with Water Damage

Nobody ever wants to imagine coming home to find that a pipe has burst or a faucet has leaked, and now there is a small flood in your home. Knowing that the best way to deal with this type of incident is by acting fast, Thistle DKI has a checklist for you to read over.

Safety First!

Every good checklist should start with a safety reminder/item, and this one is no exception. If you open the door and see that flooding has occurred in your home, resist the temptation to rush straight into the problem. First, check for any safety concerns such as live wires, electrical sockets, and even ground obstacles which you may not be able to see.

Call for Backup

If you are looking at serious damage, such as water that covers your feet, call a professional damage restorer straight away. As good as their services are, they still need time to get to your property, so make the call now.

Find the Problem

Once your safety is assured, investigate the damage and find out where the water is coming from. Remember that the leak could be inside your walls, so pay attention to any damp spots as you search.

Fix the Problem - If You Can!

Once you have found the problem, assess whether it is something that you can tend to yourself. If you can, and it is safe, get out your tools and apply a temporary fix. As much as we all like to think we are DIY masters, there are just some jobs which are too large. If you come up against a leak or burst pipe which you can't fix, even temporarily, start the next step while you wait for your disaster recovery services.

Time for Your Valuables

While you wait for your damage restorers to arrive, look around for any valuable or personal items which may be damaged, or close to it. If possible, try to remove any furniture which could absorb water, such as your couch.
