Helpful Tips

Helpful Tips in dealing with your water damage loss:

Stop the leak as soon as possible. Turn off water as soon as possible and have plumbing repaired at leaking source.
Begin mitigation process immediately to avoid secondary damages from occurring. If water sits too long, the damages will continue to spread causing more area of loss. Structural materials and furnishings that have been left in the “wet” state for prolonged periods of time will start to breakdown and possibly become unsalvageable.
Always use a skilled, certified, company to perform your restoration work. A certified technician will have the skills and experience to handle your water loss in the most efficient, cost effective manner.
Contact your insurance company to file a claim. No company can give guarantee on your coverage for water damage loss other than your insurance provider. You have the right to choose your own remediation company.
A water-damaged home or business can pose safety hazards. The biggest safety hazard on a water loss is slipping and falling.
If a Category 3 loss occurs (i.e. sewage back flow) Boardwalk recommends occupants vacate until mitigation procedures take place. Category 3 water can pose a significant health hazard especially to immune compromised individuals (i.e. infants, young children, and elderly).
