Water damage creates a nightmare for homeowners. It is caused when water accumulates in an area where it shouldn’t. Whether it is a leaking pipe, broken plumbing system or a malfunctioning household appliance, water damage can quickly create havoc. It can damage thousands of dollars worth wood furniture, electronics, upholstery, and plumbing appliances. While it starts with a leak in a pipe, the actual damage occurs when the leak remains for an extended time. For this reason, you need to act quickly and take preventive steps to reduce the damage and restore the situation. Here are few important steps to prevent the worse on water damage.

First of all, you need to identify the source of water leakage. Check out the pipes and the entire plumbing system to identify the leakage. Once the source of leakage is identified, you can prevent it from getting worse. Turn off all interior water sources. Every member of the house should know where the main valve is located and how to operate it. In times of water damage, this main valve and the angle stops need to turned off.

Secondly, check if any electrical components are affected by water. Keep yourselves away from electrical switches until a professional checks them. It is very dangerous to use any electrical equipment during water damage. Don’t use a vacuum cleaner to remove excess water- instead, manually mop the floor as much as possible.

Last but not least, move all the equipment to a dry place. However it is not recommended to handle items that are damaged by a sewer backup. Remove excess water by pinching holes into the bubbled ceiling.
