Whether a pipe bursts, your water heater leaks, or rainwater floods your home, the end result is the same—water damage. For most people in the Statesville and Mooresville areas, water damage is a stressful experience that can seem difficult to navigate. While the cleanup and restoration process can seem confusing, there are a few steps you can take.

  1. Address the source. When you have water damage, the first thing you need to do is correct the source. If you have a burst pipe, for example, you will need to shut off the water and call a plumber. Whatever the problem is, it must be addressed so it won’t continue to cause problems.

  1. Call a disaster restoration company. Once you’ve fixed the problem, you’ll need to extract and dry the water. If the damage isn’t properly cleaned up, it can lead to further complications, such as mold growth and structural damage. A water damage restoration company (such as SERVPRO of Iredell County) is experienced in the cleanup process and will ensure you don’t have further complications.

  1. Call your insurance agent. Water damages can be costly, so if you have insurance, you should consider making a claim. First, contact your local representative and make sure the damage is covered. Your agent can also help you navigate the other end of the recovery process.

Water damage can be a pain to deal with, but if you correct the source and call the right people, it’s much easier to manage. If you do have water damage and need a water damage restoration company, our team is available 24/7!
