Is the cold Colorado weather getting you down? Spring is just around the corner, though we may still have a few more months of snowy, wet conditions.
So what happens if you wake up one morning to a broken pipe flooding your kitchen, or an inch of standing water in your basement? It’s time to find the right emergency water restoration service company.
Start by assessing the damage. If water is still running, turn off the water at the main shutoff valve. Then make two calls: one to your insurance agent, and one to your water restoration company. Both will get you on the path to recovery.
Next, begin analyzing the situation. If it’s safe, begin recovering your personal belongings. Remove any items that can be saved, like artwork, photo albums, books, and papers. If things have water damaged, its important to act quickly. Dry thoroughly, and talk to your restoration expert to determine if any special action is needed.
Then plan for recovery. In some cases, you many end up replacing a good portion of a room. Do you want to make changes in the process? If you haven’t thought about a remodel or upgrade before, you may think about it now. Replacing kitchen cabinets doesn’t mean installing cabinets identical to what you have now. In many cases they may not be available, and you will have to choose a different style. What do you prefer?
Begin looking at magazines, or visit showcases or models in your area to look at the latest styles. Your restoration company will also have suggestions about making sometimes difficult choices quickly, so you can get your home – and your life – back to normal.
