For emergency flood restoration call 604-240-7787
Hi everyone, at Carpeteer, we receive emergency 24/7 flood calls and we turn around all types of restoration situations. There's often some immediate steps you can take to mitigate the damages.
1. Turn your water off
First step in flood restoration is to stop the source of the flooding for obvious reasons.
If your water heater is electric make sure to turn off your power to it. If your water heater is gas make sure to turn off the gas valve.
2. Move all items out of the area which has flooded
Many times we've had calls where wedding photos and belongings are still soaking in the area of the flood. Once a restoration company arrives all items will have to be removed from the area in order to extract the water. It's best if this is done by the tenants as soon as possible to allow the restoration process to start taking place. If you have insurance then you may be able to take advantage of content workers who will move all your items for you.
3. Call The Carpeteer or another trusted flood restoration company
