4 Immediate Steps to take in a Water Damage

When water damage occurs, even a few hours can make the difference in saving expensive carpets and furniture. If you are ever in an emergency situation with water running everywhere here are some steps you should take to minimize your losses.

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 critical to know what to do.) 373-7410 in Wasilla or 562-7410 in Anchorage.

3. Take immediate action

Call TCM Restoration 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 us, were on our way.

4. Remove Furniture

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 the 5% which aren’t restored, most are caused by not doing this. So either move furniture that’s even near water or place something under the legs.

If you are ever in the unfortunate predictament of having water damage in your home TCM Restoration can expertly dry and restore your home & belongings for you. We have expert trained restoration teams ready to go 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist you in a water emergency.

Simple Tip to Prevent Water Damage in Your Home

A simple preventative task you can do to avoid a major water catastrophe in your home  is to to inspect your washing machine. 

Check hoses regularly for bulging, cracking, fraying, and leaks around hose ends.

 Replace the hose if a problem is found or every three to five years as part of a proactive maintenance program.

 To help make sure the hose doesn’t kink, leave at least four inches  between the water connection and the back of the washing machine.
