How To Handle A Leak In Your Home



How do you handle a leak in your home?
  1. Find where the leak is coming from and turn off the water.
  2. Move items out of the line of the water. Salvage as many items as you can from sitting in water.
  3. Use towels or a wet/dry vacuum to remove the water you can see.
  4. Since water seeps into cracks in floors and wicks up walls in the drywall, you will need to contact a mitigation company to remove the water and lower the humidity.
  5. Use a mitigation company that has a good ranking and has IICRC certified employees.
  6. Call your insurance company for an adjuster to be assigned to your loss.
