Until Help Arrives

A flood can be an extremely stressful event, no matter the size; a small amount of water can lead to big problems down the road! Fortunately, Modernistic brings 40 years of expertise and knowledge to the mitigation process, so you can be sure you are in good hands.

When a flood occurs, one of your first steps should be to call Modernistic to start the mitigation process. The sooner this happens, the less risk you have of additional complications later on. Until our IICRC-certified technicians arrive, there are some steps you can take to further improve your situation:

1. STAY SAFE!

The most important step is to provide for you and your family’s safety. If the water presents an immediate danger, leave the area. Don’t wade into standing water or handle anything connected to the electrical system in the affected area unless you are sure the electricity to the area is shut off.

2. Contact your insurance company

Depending on your policy, your homeowners insurance may cover losses from floods. Restoring a home to pre-loss condition can be an extensive process, so it’s good to know your options beforehand. If you do start a claim, make sure to keep track of your claim number, agent name and number, and policy number. Modernistic will work with your insurance company to make the process as Simple & Quick as possible for you.

3. Make sure the source of the water has stopped/been repaired

In order to best serve your restoration needs, the source of the water needs to be stopped before we can start the mitigation process. The plan of action in each situation depends on the source of the water: shutting off the water to a leaking pipe, stopping an overflowing toilet, etc. As soon as the water has stopped coming in, we can begin removing it.

4. Move sensitive contents out of immediate area

If you are able to do it safely, begin moving your dry, unaffected belongings out of the flooded area to prevent further damage. Cardboard boxes and electronics are especially susceptible to rapid water damage, so make these items a priority to move away from rising water. If an item is already wet, leave it; you want to avoid spreading moisture to unaffected areas.
