There is nothing worse than having a major water problem inside your home.
It’s a big, messy problem and it’s enough to overwhelm most unlucky homeowners.
The first thing you need to do is find someone that can get to your house and start fixing it today.
What Does a Bellevue WA Water Clean Up Company Do?
The service you hire will race to your home, start soaking up all the water and begin testing all areas of your house for moisture. They have tools and techniques for checking behind walls and under floors.
They will let you know the extent of your water damage and make some recommendations on what to do next.
But their primary focus is to dry your home as quickly as possible.
They will bring in heaters and fans. When it’s necessary, they will pull up carpeting and flooring, move appliances, remove molding and open up drywall.
As they examine and dry your house, they will begin putting together a list of the items in your home that they believe should either be removed and discarded or just dried, repaired and put back.
For example, in some cases, sections of wood flooring needs to be replaced because they got so wet and they started warping. But other times wood flooring can be just sanded and refinished.
In a few cases, carpeting and padding needs to be completely replaced; in many other situations, it can simply be dried and put back in place.
This Is Going to be Expensive, Isn’t It?
A Bellevue emergency water cleanup service will not be cheap. There usually isn’t too much of a price difference between the various companies.
Because time is so important, you can’t leisurely make appointments with several different companies to come out and make estimates. Trying to save a little bit of cash isn’t your biggest concern right now.
Thankfully, in most situations, the majority of the cost of your emergency water removal and cleanup will be covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy.
Who Else Can Help?
Your insurance agent should be one of your first phone calls. Your insurance company will give you some advice and then send out an adjuster to meet with your Bellevue cleanup service. They will walk through your house together and assess the damages.
This is exactly what insurance adjusters do for a living and the reason why you have homeowners insurance in the first place.
Getting your home back to the condition it was in before this happened will not be a short process. But it will get done.
You just need to get started now.
