Water Damage Restoration

Water Damage Cleanup Worcester, Ma

When it comes to flooding, Mother Nature has not been kind during the past few years. Millions of homes across Massachusetts are affected by flooding due to increased rains and the resulting overflow from rivers and streams.


But property owners face another type of emergency flooding — from inside their homes. The most common cause of water damage comes from failed plumbing systems: the materials wear out, leading to pipe leaks or bursts.


These types of incidents can cost you anywhere from $1,100 to $4,500 on average, and more extensive repairs can rack up tens of thousands of dollars. Water damage is destructive and expensive, and it can have long-term consequences for your health and the value of your property.

5 Steps for Handling Water Damage

Simply put, these things happen. It doesn’t make them any easier to deal with but avoid panicking and overstressing yourself. Keep calm, remember that damage can be repaired, and find peace that there are experienced, reliable professionals who know just what to do.

Sometimes the source of the water is going to be easy to spot: a flooded bathtub, a broken sink pipe, or flooding from a local storm. If it’s a water source that can be turned off, do so as quickly as possible to eliminate further flooding.

 

Calmly and rationally evaluate the scene- what can be done here and now to eliminate further damage? The reality is that in some cases, you won’t be able to find a source, and you might not be able to turn off that source.

Try to gauge how much damage has been done, and to what area. This will be important information to know for you to pass on to a professional. Can you tell where the water has gone? Feel around and conduct a thorough, visual inspection. Take notes on this so you can relay this information later when necessary.

When it comes to water damage, flooding can cause damage to visible areas as well as the layers underneath and adjoined. Water can also spread quickly from the floor to nearby cabinets or furniture or even worse wall cavities. Don’t take the risk of waiting to see how bad the damage is or to try to do it yourself.
