What to Do When You Experience Water Loss: A Guide by SERVPRO® of Utah County and Downtown Salt Lake City

Water damage can be a homeowner’s worst nightmare, but knowing how to handle it can make all the difference. At SERVPRO®, we understand the urgency and the stress that comes with water loss. Whether it’s due to a burst pipe, a flood, or an appliance leak, immediate action is crucial to minimize damage and restore your property. Here’s what you should do when faced with water loss:

  1. Safety First

Before you do anything, ensure that it’s safe to stay in the house. Look out for electrical hazards and structural damage that may have been caused by the water. If you suspect any danger, leave the premises immediately and contact professionals.

  1. Stop the Water Source

If it’s safe to do so, try to stop the water at its source. For instance, turn off the main water valve if you have a burst pipe.

  1. Contact SERVPRO® of Utah County and Downtown Salt Lake City

Time is of the essence when dealing with water damage. Call us at (801) 785-5228 for 24/7 emergency services. Our team is always ready to respond with advanced water detection, extraction, and drying equipment.

  1. Document the Damage

While waiting for our team to arrive, document the extent of the water damage by taking photos and videos. This will be helpful for insurance claims and for our assessment.

  1. Move Valuables

If possible, move valuable items such as electronics, paintings, and important documents to a dry area to prevent further damage.

  1. Start the Cleanup Process

Begin removing as much water as possible by mopping and blotting. Open windows and doors to allow air circulation to help with the drying process.

  1. Leave the Rest to Us

Once our SERVPRO® team arrives, we’ll take over the restoration process. We’ll assess the damage, extract the water, and use our state-of-the-art equipment to dry and dehumidify your property. We’ll also clean and sanitize affected areas to prevent mold growth.

Smoke and Soot Damage Can Cause a Pervasive Odor in Your Home.

Fire can cause extensive damage to your property and belongings, but the aftermath of smoke and soot can be equally devastating. Smoke and soot can leave behind harmful residues, stains, odors, and health hazards that require professional attention. That's why you need SERVPRO® of Utah County and Downtown Salt Lake, the experts in fire restoration and smoke damage cleanup.

Smoke and Soot Facts

Smoke and soot are not uniform substances. There are two main types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO® of Utah County and Downtown Salt Lake will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here are the different types of smoke:

- Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

- Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

- Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

How to Protect Your Commercial Property from Water Damage

No Job Is Too Big SERVPRO. Restoration. Cleaning. Construction.

Water damage is one of the most common and costly disasters that can affect your commercial property. Whether it is caused by a burst pipe, a leaky roof, a faulty appliance, or a natural disaster, water damage can disrupt your business operations, damage your inventory and equipment, and pose health and safety risks to your employees and customers.

Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to protect your commercial property from water damage and minimize its impact if it does occur. Here are some tips to help you prevent and prepare for water damage in your business:

  • Inspect your plumbing system regularly and fix any leaks, cracks, or corrosion as soon as possible. You can also install water sensors and shut-off valves to detect and stop water leaks before they cause major damage.
  • Maintain your roof and gutters and clear them of any debris, snow, or ice that can accumulate and cause water damage. You can also apply a waterproof coating or sealant to your roof to prevent water seepage and leaks.
  • Check your appliances and equipment that use water, such as dishwashers, washing machines, refrigerators, and water heaters, and make sure they are in good working condition and have no signs of wear and tear. You can also replace any old or damaged hoses, pipes, or fittings that can cause water leaks.
  • Prepare an emergency plan and a business continuity plan for your business in case of water damage. You should identify the potential sources and impacts of water damage, assign roles and responsibilities to your staff, and have a list of emergency contacts and resources, such as your insurance company, your water damage restoration company, and your local authorities.
  • Educate your staff and customers on how to prevent and respond to water damage. You should train your staff on how to use water shut-off valves, how to evacuate safely, and how to report water damage incidents.

What to Do after a Storm ?

12/1/2023 (Permalink)

Cleaning up after a storm can be a big job, whether the damage was caused by a tornado, hurricane, flooding, snow or ice storm. The most important part of the cleanup process is safety, so be sure that the area you’re working on has been deemed safe to enter structurally, and that no electrical, dangerous materials, or other hazards are present.

It’s important to wear the right safety gear when cleaning up after a disaster. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this gear includes:

  • Hard hats
  • Goggles
  • N95 masks or a respirator
  • Waterproof boots with a steel toe and insole
  • Earplugs or protective headphones
  • Having two fire extinguishers on site
  • It’s a good idea to work with others if you can, and get help lifting heavy items. Try to decide which tasks are the most important and tackle those first.
  • Rest when you’re tired.

Don’t hesitate to call SERVPRO if the job seems overwhelming, and especially if water, mold or sewage is involved. During large storm events our Disaster Recovery Team assembles locally with the necessary crews and equipment to handle these extreme cleanup situations that require extra resources.
