4 Immediate Steps in a Water Emergency
When water damage occurs, even a few hours can make the difference in saving expensive carpets and furniture. If you are ever in an emergency situation with water running everywhere here are some steps you should take to minimize your losses.
1. Avoid Hazards
Be extremely careful of the deadly combination of water and electricity. Also, be cautious of slippery wet carpets and floors. Stay away from Raw Sewage backups, which contain nasty bacteria and can be harmful to your health.
2. Stop the Source
If you haven’t located the source of the water, call us immediately and we will guide you through this (it is very critical to know what to do.) 373-7410 in Wasilla or 562-7410 in Anchorage.
3. Take immediate action
Call TCM Restoration 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You will always be answered by friendly staff. No answering machines here! Our dispatchers will have a water damage expert contact you immediately. Call us now! After you call us, we're on our way.
4. Remove Furniture
Wood furniture will cause stains which cannot be removed. Rust stains from metal are difficult to remove and may be permanent. 95% of water damage jobs are restorable, and the 5% which aren’t restored, most are caused by not doing this. So either move furniture that’s even near water or place something under the legs.
