When Your Great Falls Home Experiences Water Damage
Common Types of Water Damage in Great Falls Homes (And What to Do About It)
The two most common areas in a home that homeowners experience water damage are the kitchen and bathroom. However, there are a host of other areas that can wreak havoc from washing machine malfunctions to water tank failures. When any of these events occur, the faster the cleanup begins, lessens the potential for loss.
When Great Falls homeowners experience water damage, the initial actions can help limit issues before SERVPRO techs arrive on-site. Your to-do list should include:
- Pick up items on the floor such as magazines and decorative baskets
- Put down towels to absorb water, particularly at carpet edges and baseboards
- Put foil between stained wood and wet carpet to avoid transfer bleeds
- Take small furnishings out of the loss area if it is safe to do so
SERVPRO techs use state of the art equipment to determine the actual scale of water loss. It is vital to go beyond what they can visually see and find hidden water that migrated behind baseboards or within wall cavities. This attention to detail negates further issues such as foul, musty odors, and mold growth.
