The Four Things You Need To Know When Water Damage Occurs
4 IMMEDIATE STEPS YOU MUST TAKE:
1. AVOID HAZARDS! Be extremely careful of the deadly combination of water and electricity. Also, be cautious of slippery wet carpets and floors. Stay away from Raw Sewage backups, which contain nasty bacteria and can be harmful to your health.
2. STOP THE SOURCE! If you haven’t located the source of the water call us immediately and we will guide you through this (it is very crucial to know what to do).
3. TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION by calling Radiant 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You will always be answered by friendly staff. No answering machines here! Our dispatchers will have a water damage expert contact you immediately. Call us now! After you call we’re on our way…
4. REMOVE FURNTIURE! Wood furniture will cause stains which cannot be removed. Rust stains from metal are difficult to remove and may be permanent. 95% of water damage jobs are restorable, and most of the 5% which aren’t restored, are caused by not doing this. So move furniture that’s even near water or place something under the legs.
