How to Start the Water Damage Restoration Process in Bayonne, NJ

ServiceMaster Metropolitan offers do’s and don’ts until a professional water removal service can arrive.

Water damage is common throughout the year, but especially during the spring and summer seasons. When you experience a burst pipe or a flooded basement, you might find yourself in a tizzy about what to do. The first step is to call ServiceMaster Metropolitan for water damage restoration in your Bayonne, NJ homes. After that first call, there are steps you can take to reduce the water damage to your home:

  1. Shut off the water at the source. This could be either the washer, faucet, toilet, or bath tub. You can also turn the main shut off valve off. Water can also make an uninvited entrance through an open window. The less water that gets into your home, the quicker the water removal process can be performed.
  2. Check for electrical risks. If wires or outlets are near where the water has entered your home, it’s in your best interest to turn off your circuit breakers. This small but extremely important step can prevent you from double trouble: water damage and fire restoration.
  3. Do NOT enter a basement where standing water is present. There might be obstacles blocking your path, or electric shock risk mentioned in the tip above.

The most important step you can take when you have water in your home is to call ServiceMaster Metropolitan. An immediate call to our emergency line can prevent even more property loss and some adverse health effects. Water damage restoration in Bayonne, NJ is most effective when it is done immediately and thoroughly.
