Water Damage

water damageWater damage can occur from many things, including storms, floods, or plumbing or sewer issues. Whatever the reason, it’s imperative that you follow a few simple rules to help make water restoration and cleanup easier. First, make sure it’s safe to be in the area. If you have high levels of water, electrical components may be affected, and it could be very dangerous for you to be close to the area. Secondly, assess the damage. Third, get rid of standing water, if you’re able to. The longer it sits, the more damage it will do. Lastly, but most importantly, call a professional to help.

Fire Damage

After dealing with a fire, however big or small, first make sure everyone is safe and that the fire is out. If not, call emergency help right away. If the fire is out and the area is safe, assess the damage and remove what valuables you can immediately. Certain things will be salvageable, while others, like clothes, may have too much smoke damage. Gather any important papers, like insurance documents, to prepare for your home insurance company. If necessary, call a fire restoration company like SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach to help you deal with the fire damage and aftermath.
