So now that you recognize the sign and causes of water damage lets move on to some tips that you can use to alleviate some of the problem as you wait for help to arrive. Remember while you may find many DIY repair advice online, unless you are a professional you could make the situation worse trying to solve it yourself.   Save yourself time and money by calling McClain Bros for your water restoration needs.

Step 1 - Identify the Kind of Water

Knowing the type of water will help a lot in knowing where the damage is from and what needs to be done about it. There are three kinds of water that can cause water damage to your home.

  1. Clean Water – This is water from leaking pipes, condensation, rain and such. This is the safest to clean up since its not contaminated water.
  2. Grey Water – The grey kind is waste water from appliances such as the dishwasher, washing machine and so on. Mild disinfecting will be needed to fully clean up from this kind of water.
  3. Black Water – This is the worst kind because it is from sewage lines or river overflow. Black water will need extensive caution, cleaning and disinfecting.

Slips, falls, electrocution and (depending on the kind of water) infection are the biggest hazards to worry about while waiting for help. So follow these steps to stay safe and to alleviate the problem as much as possible.

  1.  First thing you’ll want to do is get children, pets and others away from the area the water damage is occurring.
  2. Next, you’ll want to put on rain boots or other waterproof shoe if you need to move in the flooded area. If if it unclean water then be sure to also have gloves and a mask handy to keep you safe.
  3. Turn off the power to the effected rooms via the circuit breaker to avoid electrical hazards and damage to you electronic devices. Only do this if you can reach the electrical panel without walking though the water.
  4. Shut off the source of the water via the main coming into your home/office. Again, only attempt this is you can do so safely.
  5. Try to remove wood furniture, electrical appliances, paper objects and other valuable items away from the affected area. You’ll want to get them to a safe, dry place before they become irreversibly damaged. Then you will want to clean them off and dry them as quickly as possible.
