Just woke up to an active water damage in my house! Help!

What happens when you wake up and notice that your bathroom faucet has been running all night? There is water everywhere!!! First you need to shut off the water and then I bet you're running around to grab all the towels to absorb the excess water. Once you walk downstairs you realize the water has travelled throughout the floors and through the kitchen ceiling. The ceiling is bubbling and there's water puddling on your hardwood floors. Not the hardwood floors that you just refinished!! What should you do?? Call SERVPRO ASAP and also call your insurance company to see if there's coverage. SERVPRO can help navigate these times..we do this everyday but understand this is your home.

First we have to assess what areas have been affected. We will get our professionals into your home to start removing the standing water. Once that is complete we will look to see what areas are majority affected and need removal. After we remove all damaged areas we will set up several pieces of drying equipment. This will help dry out water in the air and the materials that still have water in them. After a few days of drying the team will come to assess the areas to see if it's dry. 

Once everything is dry you can have the contractor come in and rebuild any areas that need to be replaced.
