Tips to Minimize Damage Until Help Arrives

Without question, your biggest concern during a water damage emergency is reaching out to First Response Restoration to get professional help dispatched ASAP. Until the proven professionals arrive, some stopgap steps that you can take to mitigate the extent of the damage include:

  • Stop the flow of water if possible.
  • Turn off the electricity to prevent electrocution.
  • Remove salvageable items.
  • Ensure the structural stability of the property.

Once our restoration contractors arrive, they have the necessary equipment, experience, and expertise to make short work of your water damage emergency.

Consult Your Insurance Provider During a Water Damage Emergency

In a water damage emergency, you should contact your insurance provider ASAP. Depending on the extent of the damage and the extent of your homeowner’s insurance policy, your insurance company may be able to cover all of the costs associated with restoring your home. You may need to relocate temporarily if the damage is severe enough. In many cases, this relocation cost will be covered by your homeowner's insurance policy.

Great communication, Corey was our contact and he answered the phone every time I called. Very patient with coordinating between different condo unit owners and really knew his stuff. He was able to put everyone at ease, and worked very quickly.
