Whether it’s a leak in the roof or the pipes have burst, water damage in San Diego is bound to happen to most of us at some time. As with most damage, the important thing is getting everything cleaned up as quickly as possible to stop the damage from causing further problems.
Water damage is especially important to take care of quickly because when there is water you know that mold is following hot on its trail.
If you want to stop the damage from spreading yourself here are a few simple rules to follow:
- Make sure to find the source of the water and stop the water from coming in. You don’t want to start cleaning up until the water has stopped flowing.
- Once the water has been extracted, air out the rooms affected by the water. We suggest using fans as well as opening windows and doors.
- Any furniture or any other belongings that are wet should be moved to dry open spaces so that mold doesn’t begin to grow
Remember documenting damage is a good practice so that when you call your insurance company they will have a better understanding on your claim.
