A Guide to the Water Damage Restoration Process

Written by Casey Shearns on . Posted in , , .

Most often, homeowners are not thinking of water damage until they experience it themselves. Water damage of any kind anywhere in your home can be extremely daunting, especially if you are unfamiliar with what to do. It is crucial that all homeowners have a sense of what to do in case of a water damage emergency in order to keep themselves and their homes safe. 

Follow along for tips and guidance through the water damage restoration process from the restoration experts at Soil-Away!

Step One: Safety

The first and most important step in water damage restoration is prioritizing safety. Water damage can lead to several hazards such as slip and fall, collapsing ceilings, contamination, and electrocution.  Do not take unnecessary risks. Have a safety plan. 

Step Two: Stabilize

Deal with the source of the water. Did a pipe burst? Is an appliance failing? Tree damage your roof? Stop and source of the water (if possible) so that damages don’t continue to expand. Next you need to extract water and start the drying process. 

Step Three: Contact Insurance

All homeowners’ insurance may vary, but the process remains the same. Your insurance company will send an adjuster to assess the damage and determine whether or not it is a covered loss. Make sure to document the values of each and every item you can think of and take photos before, during, and after cleanup. This will help the adjuster when they are assessing the damage. 

Step Four: Begin Restoration

Always be sure that before you begin restoration, all of the damage that occurred is adequately documented for insurance. Once this is complete, you are able to begin restorations on your home. It is recommended to start water damage restoration services ASAP. Most of the time, water damage is to be taken care of by professionals. It simply causes too much damage that the average homeowner is not able to repair. Water damage restoration specialists like the expert team at Soil-Away are the ones you want to call when you need water damage restoration assistance.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
