4 Steps to Minimize your Water Damage

Every home is at risk when it comes to dealing with leaks, floods, and water damages from storms. It can become stressful and costly when repairing these damages. Here are 4 easy steps to follow to lessen the damages if an unexpected water disaster happens in your home.

  1. Cut Off the Source

Almost every person’s first response to a water flood is to clean it up. Although that is an important step to lessening the damages, it is best to cut off the water source first. This helps prevent further water flow. If the source isn’t an appliance, find the main water shutoff valve to the house and turn it off. The valve is usually located in the basement or outside of a home.

  1. Preserve Your Home

Now, if the extent of the damage is small enough, you can proceed to clean up the water. Using rags, mops, and buckets would be the most beneficial. You may need to move furniture around for easier access to the area. If the water damage is related to sewage water, DO NOT clean up the water and call a remediation company. Sewage water should be left alone to prevent sickness and further contamination to other parts of the home.

  1. Contact Restoration Company

To the naked eye, an affected area may look dry and cleaned. However, the materials underneath or behind the surfaces may still be wet. Water damages often leads to mold no matter the extent of the water. Contact a Water Restoration Company, such as SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning, to help assess the damages and prevent mold.

  1. Do Not Panic

For most this may be the hardest step to do, but don’t panic. Panicking causes us to make decisions and action we might regret. For example, removing any carpet or flooring on your own. Professional restoration experts are there to help and restore your home.

Water damages can happen to any home. Be prepared and follow these 4 easy steps to help minimize the damages and ease the restoration process.

Grey Water! What is that?

Different Types of Water Losses

When dealing with an emergency water loss, many people are unaware of the different types of water losses that could happen in their home or business. Knowing the type of water loss help determine the proper drying techniques and designate which damaged materials can and cannot be restored. Water losses fall into three categories: clean water, gray water and black water.

Category 1: Clean Water

This type of water loss comes from a source that does not pose substantial harm. It may include broken water pipes, overflows, and falling rainwater. However, it may not always remain clean after it encounters other surfaces or materials. If left untreated it may become a category 2 water loss.

Category 2: Gray Water

Gray water contains significant contamination and has potential to cause illness or discomfort. Sources include overflows or broke pipes contaminated with chemicals or microorganisms.

Category 3: Black Water

Category 3 water loss is grossly contaminated and may contain harmful agents. This type of water loss carries silt, organic matter, heavy metals, and toxic substances that create black water. With a black water loss, most materials may be removed and properly dispose.

 *****   If you are unsure of the type of water loss you are dealing with or don’t know how to go about handling it, call a professional for help. SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning is IICRC certified, with highly trained specialist that are available 24/7.

A Temporary Tarp Solution to Minimize Water Intrusion During A Storm

3/25/2021 (Permalink)

A Beaumont resident contacted us for advice in anticipation to an upcoming storm. Some of his roof deck tiles were damaged from a rain storm just days before. He had reached out to a couple of roofers regarding some roof issues he had but stated that the roofers he contacted couldn’t go out until a few days. He was concerned since it was projected that rain was going to continue. We recommended that he get in the meanwhile a tarp placed on his roof since heaving rains where expected.

A tarp would protect his home during the rain, avoiding water from intruding and damaging other areas in his home. We helped him with the tarp and put it in place just in time. Rains were heaving and continued for days. It turned out to be a good preventative strategy. We can do the same for you.

It’s always devastating when a family experiences a house fire. At SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning, we work hard to recover your structures and contents after a fire. We also remove soot and even the smell of the smoke from your home, so that you and your family can returned to your safe, clean space. Our goal is always to make your home “Like it never even happened.” 

What to Expect: 

When we visit your home after a fire loss, we will scope the affected areas to determine the extent of the loss. We will always pretest affected surfaces to determine the type of smoke and which products will help us recover the area most effectively.

SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning will treat you and your family with empathy and respect, and your property with care.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Beaumont/Banning will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
