Flood Damage Portage
First, stay calm.
Be sure to turn off the breakers to the wet areas of the building before entering those areas, or unplugging and moving anything electrical. Only then should you move any items on the floor to dry areas. If the source of the water is a broken or leaking pipe, turn off the water to the building, or to that area. A plumber is often needed in these circumstances.
Second, call a professional.
A professional who has the experience and know-how to handle these situations and can get you back to normal fast. For example, when you call Bailtek , you are calling people with over 50 years combined experience in water damage restoration. We’ll have a truck and a technician on the way immediately to begin the drying process, and most of all, to take control of the situation and put your mind at ease. We will monitor the drying process daily, and keep you and your insurance company informed of the situation, to ensure that we get you back to normal as fast as possible. We also ensure a dry basement and belongings.
Third, don’t wait.
Most insurance policies require the insured to take actions to mitigate further water damage. Experts agree that the first 48 hours are critical in preventing the growth of mold and other microbes that can lead to an unhealthy environment and the need for more extensive structural repairs. That’s why it’s important to have professionals on site as soon as possible to remove all excess flood water and set up the proper equipment to produce large amounts of dry air and begin the drying process immediately.
