From a broken pipe to a torrential rain, flooding can wreak havoc on your home and
belongings. When water invades your home and causes damage, it is usually
unbelievably traumatizing. Even before the water stops flowing, a daunting mess might
be more damage than you can handle. When a flooding emergency occurs, you need to
assess the situation and decide- should you call for expert help?

Emergency Timeline & Checklist
Step one: Stop the water at its source to minimize damage. Determine the source
of the flow; is it from a visible plumbing connection or coming from a less accessible
ceiling or wall? Obviously, you could turn off a faucet but do you know where the shut
off valve is on the street?
You might need a plumber immediately.
If sewage has contaminated your building, you have a biohazard to deal with and
will need specialized help.
Step two: Deal with active wet areas. Turn off the electricity and remove small
electrical devices from the areas with excess water, if it is safe to do so. Remove small
furnishings from carpeted areas or place aluminum foil under furniture legs. (This helps
prevent permanent rust of furniture stains.) Hang draperies and pin up furniture skirts to
avoid contact with wet floors. Avoid the possibility of electric shock; do not use a home
vacuum or shop vacuum to remove water.
Is large furniture affected? Plan for restoration crews to move furniture into dry
Are the carpet pads or walls in contact with puddles? Professional extraction
equipment can be brought into the home to physically remove any free standing
water from carpet, padding, and upholstery.
Step three: Get the moisture out. Mold grows quickly in warm, damp spaces. Are you
able to adequately ventilate the area? After it is determined safe to use electricity,
household fans can be arranged to create cross breezes and improve air flow.
Professional services use industrial dying air movers for added ventilation in
areas such as crawl spaces. Special features may include multiple drying
positions, selectable motor speeds, and antimicrobial protection.
Step four: How will I pay?/ Is this covered? Contact your insurance agent for advice
on your coverage. Some policies will authorize a water damage company as part of
your service; often flood damage is excluded.

An overflowing sink in a tile bathroom might take an hour to clean, however, flood
restoration work is not for your typical do-it-yourselfers. When you’re faced with water
damage, attacking the problem with detergent, sanitizers, and elbow grease are helpful,
but not enough to combat the long term effects and restore your property to its previous
state. Without the correct equipment or experience, cleaning the affected area yourself
can leave you with more flood damage problems than you had before. Determining if
your wet dry wall, carpet or furniture, appliances can be salvaged or needs to be
replaced requires a qualified opinion. Calling a professional remediation company
like All Brite Cleaning & Restoration with the proper equipment can save you money in
the long run by heading off potential problems.
