CALL PAUL IF YOU HAVEN’T YET – (208) 522-7374.. We respond to flood emergencies around the clock, 24/7.
Your safety is of primary concern, so stay clear of any damaged or flooded areas
Contact your insurance carrier right away
If safely possible, move furniture or other items of value to an unaffected area of your home to prevent further damage to them.
Make a list of everything that has been damaged or destroyed for your insurance adjuster. Take pictures or movies of the damage sustained.
Do not try to clean damaged items. Cleaning damaged items without the proper equipment can do more harm than good.
Do not make any permanent repairs or replacements until your insurance company has inspected the area and are able to make assessments.
Save all receipts of any temporary necessary (for safety reasons) repairs that are made. They may be forwarded to your insurance company for repayment.
Then rest assured you have done everything you can do and will now be in good hands as PAUL DAVIS RESTORATION takes over.
ABOUT FLOOD DAMAGE
Water damage is one of the most common problems that (area) residents experience in their homes. A leaking pipe can quickly discharge a flood of water – damaging carpets, flooring, drywall, furniture, and other household items. The longer the water sits, other problems arise such as mold and mildew. Whatever the source, you need help fast. At PAUL DAVIS, that help is just a click or phone call away. CALL PAUL (208) 522-7374.
