There is nothing worse than having a water problem inside your home.
It’s a big, messy issue and it can overwhelm many unlucky homeowners.
The first thing you need to do is find someone that can get to your house today and start fixing it right away.
What Does an Everett 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 to check behind walls and under floors.
They will let you know the extent of the water damage and make some recommendations on what to do next.
But their primary focus to begin with is to dry your home as quickly as possible.
They will bring in heaters and big fans. If they have to, they will pull up carpeting and flooring, move appliances, remove molding and open up drywall.
As they dry your house, they will begin putting together a pair of lists. The first list will be items in your home that they think should be discarded and replaced. The second list will be items they think can be dried, repaired and put back.
For example, in some cases, wood flooring need to be replaced because it got so wet it 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 most situations, it can simply be dried and put back in place.
This Is Going to Cost a Lot, Isn’t It?
An Everett emergency water cleanup service will not be cheap. And 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 give you estimates. Trying to save a little bit of cash isn’t your biggest concern right now.
Thankfully, in most situations, the main part of your emergency water removal and cleanup cost will be covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy.
Who Else Can Help?
Your insurance agent should be your second phone call. Your insurance company will give you some advice and then send out an adjuster to meet with your Everett cleanup service. They will go 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.
