If you have had a flood in your home, you know it can be an overwhelming mess to clean up. It can be nearly impossible to do it without the correct tools, equipment, or professional knowledge. Here is how you can deal with the water damage cleanup in your Bentonville home.
Call A Professional
If DIY is your thing and you are naturally compelled to fix problems and save money on your own, DON’T do that when it comes to flooding in your home or business! Water damage is not something you should handle all on your own. It could end up being hazardous to your health and can be very physically and emotionally challenging.
The very first thing you should do when you have any kind of flooding in your home, whether it is from a burst pipe or from heavy rainfall, is to call Courtesy Care to help you with your clean up process. Our team will arrive quickly, remove all the items that we can, vacuum the water out with our special mobile equipment, and continue to dry the affected areas. You might think that you can wipe up the water and dry out your walls and flooring, but water can become trapped inside these porous building materials, and it is often impossible to get it completely dry without the right equipment.
Talk To Your Insurance
Once our flood damage cleanup professionals are working on getting your home back to order, we will be able to give you a rough estimate of how much it will cost and what kinds of things will need to be repaired. You will need this information when you discuss your policy with your insurance company. You will also need to have a detailed list of all the damages, belongings and physical damage to your home.
The water damage cleanup process is always hard, even if it’s minor. The best thing you can do if you have experienced water damage in your home is to hire a professional who has been through this process numerous times. They can help get your home back to the original status quickly and they can give invaluable advice about all aspects of the process.
