Whether it’s from a frozen or broken water pipe, a leaking roof or a big storm, discovering your property has flooded always invokes feelings of shock, panic and fear. If you are faced with a sudden flood and have wet carpeting, it is crucial to get someone qualified in right away to extract as much water as possible to minimize secondary damages and to prevent the water from spreading further into your home or building.
As a leading Anchorage carpet cleaning and flood restoration company, the team at Warren and Son Carpet Cleaning knows how time-sensitive flood control can be. That’s why we offer our services 24/7 and are dedicated to having an emergency response time of under one hour.
What to Do While Waiting for Professional Help
Upon discovering a flood in your home or business, you should do a few things right away to mitigate the damage to your home or office including:
- Turn off Utilities
If the flooding is extensive, the first course of action is to shut off your water, gas and electricity as soon as possible as they pose dangerous risks.
- Take Photos
Before moving any damaged items out, take some photos of the damage to give to your insurance company so you can file a claim.
- Move Saturated Items
Move your items which are saturated with water out of the way including your clothing, area rugs, curtains and bedding. Place these items in large storage bins or a garage so you can attempt to salvage them later.
