What to do After a Flood Damage to Your Plantation Home?
Steps to Take Before the Professionals Arrive
Whether it is due to a storm or heavy rains, flood damage can wreak havoc on your property. It is essential to have a plan in place to ensure your safety and minimize the damage.
Thankfully, professional restoration experts can help you deal with the aftermath of flood damage to your Plantation home. The IICRC certified SERVPRO technicians have the necessary equipment and technical knowledge to get the situation under control. You can do a few things before the professional help arrives after flood damage to your home.
Ensure Your Safety
Safety comes first. Before you do anything, ensure that you and your loved ones are safe and protected. Flooded areas can have many dangers such as unstable structures, unsure footing, and floating debris. Wait for the help to arrive before trying to clean up the mess by yourself.
Call in the Professionals
Once you are safe, the next thing is to call in the professionals to begin the restoration process. SERVPRO technicians can contact you within an hour after we hear from you and within four hours of your call, our technicians can reach you to start the process. A restoration expert can contact you and arrange for the services. We take pride in the fact that We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster!
Assess the Damage, if Possible
Until the professionals arrive, you can prepare a visual record of the damage caused by the flood. Take many pictures from different angles, if it is possible to take pictures of the damage. It might help you during the insurance negotiations. Make sure that you share your assessment with the restoration experts so that they are aware of the damage.
It can be tempting to start the restoration process before the professionals arrive. However, it is not a particularly great idea. It is much wiser to wait for the technicians to arrive rather than trying to do something on your own.
