When you have water damage in your home in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, immediate action is vital to minimize damages. Call in the professional water damage restoration experts at ServiceMaster TEAM for 24-hour emergency service, and follow these 3 steps to get started today.
Shut down the water source.
If possible, turn off the water at the source. This prevents additional water from entering the space, which keeps the damage levels at a minimum.
Water damage doesn’t just affect the building itself. If your belongings are in contact with wet surfaces or standing water, they can become damaged as well. Minimize damage to your contents by moving them to a safe, dry space such as a second story or empty garage.
Begin draining the water.
Depending on the damage, you may be able to set up a way for water to drain out of the affected area. For example, if you have standing water in the bathroom, opening the shower door would allow some of that water to exit through the shower drain.
