Water and Flood Damage Restoration
If your property floods, every second counts, so it’s important to stop the source of water as soon as possible. Flooding inside a building can be extremely dangerous. Never enter a room with standing water without turning off the electricity first. There may be submerged power cords or electrical outlets that can cause a severe shock if you touch the water. If the problem is a burst or leaking pipe and it is possible to safely turn off the water supply, do so. Again, only if it is safe, turn off the main breaker on the electric panel, but not if you must walk through standing water to reach it. Flooding also can be caused by sewer backups, sump pump failures, fallen trees, and storms. It’s very important to address water damage promptly, as mold can start to grow within 24 to 48 hours.
In most cases, the safest course of action is to call a professional. You can reach us at (202) 370-1092. We’ll send a crew out to stop the water and pump it out of the premises. After inspection, we will extract as much water as possible and set up dehumidifiers and drying equipment. Once we have certified that all surfaces are completely dry, we will clean up, and restore your property to its original condition.
