What do I do after flooding in my home?

11/22/2017 (Permalink)

Flooding can be a stressful situation. It is important to make sure you take the right steps to get your property mitigated and prevent secondary damages from happening. 

1. Contact your insurance company to find out details in your policy. Once you get a claim number you can reach out to a restoration company like SERVPRO of Park Ridge to schedule someone to get on site. 

2. The mitigation process typically starts with extracting all of the standing water. This is important so the drying process can begin.

3. Once all of the water is extracted, drying equipment can be placed. This equipment will typically run for a few days. 

4. SERVPRO will monitor the job daily to make sure it is drying on schedule. They will also take accurate job notes and pictures from start to finish.
