What to Do in the Event of Water Damage at Your Home or Business
DKI is happy to help you prevent water damage, but not all disasters can be avoided. Furthermore, not all water damage is immediately apparent. Water damage may be obvious during a flood or if a main pipe bursts, but minimal water damage may be worsening under your floors or behind walls. It is essential to regularly check your walls and floors for stains or weaknesses, which may be signs of water damage. DKI can visit your property to help you investigate. But whether your water damage is significant or minimal, it is important to follow several key steps as soon as you notice it. In advance of water damage cleanup services, you should:
- Close your main water valve – If flooding is the result of a burst pipe, closing the valve will eliminate the source and minimize further damage.
- Shut the electrical breaker – Before unplugging or removing electrical devices from water damaged areas, shut off the electrical circuit to prevent electrocuting yourself.
- Call your insurance company – It is vital to report any losses or damages as soon as possible.
- Call DKI – Reach out to our team and request immediate help so that we can provide water damage cleanup, mitigation, and restoration services, and help prevent further issues.
Quick action following a leak can significantly reduce the amount of water damage your house sustains. Even small leaks can morph into larger problems or mold issues, potentially leading to costly repairs in the future.
Understanding the Severity of Water Damage
Water damage is detrimental to both your property and health. Water damage is separated into three categories, which are based on the source, duration, and other factors such as mold and chemicals. DKI’s expert service providers can help determine the category of your water damage. These options are:
- Category 1 – Comprising of clean water damage from broken water taps, leaking sinks, and minimal amounts of rainwater, category 1 water damage involves uncontaminated water that does not pose significant health risks. Therefore, category 1 repairs require less equipment and time than their alternatives. However, left untreated, this type of damage can develop into a category 2 concern within a day.
- Category 2 – These damages involve gray water with small amounts of contamination. They can result from cracked sewer lines or water supply pipes, leaking roofs, overflowing toilets, dishwater discharge, and more. After 48 hours, this damage can turn into a category 3 problem.
- Category 3 – The most dangerous form of water damage, category 3 consists of black water contamination. Black water is highly polluted and can cause significant health problems. It is important to seek assistance from our water damage remediation specialists immediately to avoid exposure to bacterial diseases and unsafe chemicals. Do not attempt to clean this on your own.
