Emergency Restoration Services - What You Need to Know

One of the biggest challenges in today's economy is the need to save. But what happens when are faced with a broken water line, sewer backup, toilet overflow, drain backup, etc... One thought that comes to mind is that "we should try to clean the source up ourselves." The one big issue that you have when you attempt to clean up yourself - is the risk of contamination. The problem especially when it comes to mold is that you will not be able to tell where it is present in many cases. It could contain bacteria behind baseboards, under carpet or pad, within your drywall. As soon as their is moisture present you have now introduced a food source for contaminants.

- You are going to save yourself a big headache in the long run by letting professional staff deal with the cause. The deductible and premium costs are a small fee to pay to keep your home safe and secure for years to come.

- The longer that you leave the moisture in the air and surfaces, the more damages that will become present.

What needs to be done when your residence becomes affected:

1. Remove children or pets from the source

1. Immediately cut the power source to the area

2. Turn off the water main - both cold and hot

3. Call your insurance representative

4. Have an emergency response crew attend site immediately

5. Attempt to block further flow of water to other rooms

There will be high emotions when you deal with these situations so please take the proper precautions for the safety of your family and/or business.
