What You Need to Know About Water Damage
Water damage occurs when water enters an area of your home or business, usually through an unforeseen event, such as a burst water pipe, faulty plumbing, bad drainage, a heavy rainstorm, the list goes on. If you experience water damage from a flooding event, it is best not to panic. Think safety first. Shut off all electrical power to the building, at least temporarily. Second, shut off the water supply valve, usually on the outside of your home or business, or shut off the main meter out by the street. Make sure it is safe to enter the affected area. Immediately call Castle Keepers, your local water removal and restoration specialists, to extract the standing water. It is extremely important to have a certified restoration company mitigate the damage. Improper mitigation techniques can lead to a whole host of avoidable problems, from mold development to insurance denial of your claim.
