There’s really nothing worse than having a big water problem in your home.
It’s a major problem on many levels and it is enough to overwhelm most homeowners.
You need to find someone that can get to your house and start fixing it today.
What Will a Seattle Water Clean Up Company Do?
The company you hire will race to your home and test all areas of your house for moisture. They have tools and methods for checking behind walls and under floors.
They will let you know the extent of your water damage and make some recommendations.
But their main focus is to dry your home as quickly as possible.
If it’s necessary, they may need to pull up carpeting, move appliances, remove molding and open up drywall.
As they examine and dry your house, they will start putting together a list of the items in your home that they believe should either be removed and replaced or just dried and repaired.
For example, in some cases, sections of wood flooring need to be replaced because they started warping. But sometimes wood flooring can be just sanded and refinished.
Sometimes carpeting needs to be replaced; in other situations, it can simply be dried and put back in place.
Will This Be Expensive?
A Seattle emergency water cleanup service will not be cheap. There usually isn’t too much of a price difference between the various companies.
And because you’re in a hurry, 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.
Fortunately, in most situations, the majority of the cost of your emergency water removal 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 send out an adjuster to meet with your Seattle cleanup service and walk through your house.
This is what those people do and the reason why you have insurance in the first place.
This will not be a short process. But you need to get started now.

And don’t forget about your water line backflow shut-off valve assembly either. It will need to be checked so that in case of a flood or water backup, it won’t allow contaminated water to get back into a fresh water supply line. You can contact Backflow Finder to get someone to come to your property, inspect and take care of your pipes and equipment. Visit Backflow Finder in Seattle or Bellevue or Tacoma.
