Water Crisis & Damage Overview

A water crisis can be the result of a variety of events; storms and floods, plumbing leaks and burst pipes, sewage and sump pump backups, ice dams, blocked gutters, and sprinkler systems are just a few of the ways water can cause damage to your home.

The results of adverse water events can range from obviously ruined floors and walls, dropped ceilings, and damaged furniture and fixtures to more subtle, but more dangerous, problems such as compromised structural integrity and mold.

Water Disaster Tips

Water Damaged Interior Wall Water Damaged Basement

When a water disaster strikes, there are a few steps you should take immediately to help minimize mold growth and water damage to your home. Mold can start growing in moist conditions within 48 hours, so time is of the essence when taking action during a water crisis.

Note that you should only take these steps if you are certain of your safety and the structural integrity of the building. Do not enter rooms with sagging floors or ceilings.

  • Remove everything you can from the space.
  • Wipe down and elevate heavy furniture using non-porous items like foam or plastic.
  • Wrap immovable furniture legs with aluminum foil.
  • Pull up colored rugs to prevent floor staining.
  • Mop or vacuum excess water and cordon off hazardous slip areas and potential electrical hazards.
  • Turn on any available fans and run air conditioning.
  • Take photos and start making an inventory of damaged furniture, appliances, and housewares.
  • Collect vulnerable documents for safekeeping.
  • Consider moving off the premises during the mitigation period.
