By December 21, 2016 May 3rd, 2019 No Comments

Water will always find a way – and that way is always downward with gravity to the point of least resistance. If your business happens to be in the way, what a pain. In addition to destroying property and leaving your business unable to operate, water damage can also create nasty health issues by creating mold.

Water damage to a business can come from anywhere: flooding, roof leaks, seepage, snow melt, burst pipes, blocked and overflowing toilets, leaks, water heaters, sewage backup, you name it.

Here’s what you should do when water damage affects your business in the Greater Denver area.

At 24/7 Flood Response we take pictures before during and after the job, so you won’t have to worry about capturing images of your damage. However you can still capture your own images – still and video – of everything affected by water damage if you like. We do recommend that you do so while everything is still in place. Do not discard anything yet. Be sure those images have a time and date stamp on them.

Make lists. Note down any damaged items, from computers to carpet.

Clean Out

We advise that you if you want to move your high value items, you can do so immediately. At 24/7 Flood Response, we are experienced in handling valuable and everyday items.

Call the Insurance Company When Advised to Do So

Call your insurance company after speaking extensively with your local water damage restoration company. They’ll advise you what to say and what to expect. The insurer will want proof of everything and copies of paperwork. At some point an adjuster will arrive. Be sure to book the pros to be there at the same time.y
