4 Crucial Steps to Take if Your Home or Business Floods

For those of us who have had the unfortunate experience of flooding in our home or property, you know that in the moment of panic, it is not always clear on what move you should make next. While you hope that this is never something you will have to go through, it is always great to be educated on how to ensure that you are limiting further water damage to your belongings and property by understanding a few critical steps in the midst of a flood or water loss.

If the water source is evident and safely accessible, shut off the water main or close window or door from which water is getting into the property.

Remove all property valuables that can be damaged.

Remove furniture from affected area.

Move as much off the wet carpet or floor as possible, especially objects with metal or wooden legs or supports. These items will stain the carpet or hardwood floors when wet.

After taking these steps, it is best to call on a professional to help you understand the source of the water loss, properly repair the source, and successful dry the property and extract all water and moisture. The quicker you can begin the drying process the better!

Remediation Group Rescues MARTA

Remediation Group rescued MARTA from shutting down it’s 5 Point Station this past weekend.  Located in downtown Atlanta, 5 Point Station is one of MARTA’s busiest stations. Disaster struck when the sewer pump failed and caused the bathrooms to be shut down immediately. Our Emergency Response Team was called in to develop a septic water extraction plan. Our team of expects developed a continuous extraction process that allowed MARTA to reopen their bathrooms after only shutting restrooms down for one evening, allowing passengers limited interruption. Remediation Group remained available to MARTA 24/7 until a new sewer pump was sourced and installed. CEO Fred Rodriquez comments, “It was definitely a challenge but our team responded quickly and brainstormed a detailed solution with the right equipment and manpower.” The whole team at Remediation Group is proud of the work we did for MARTA and its users.

Frozen Pipes and Water Damage

It’s cold Atlanta! The arrival of Arctic air this week brought temperatures in metro Atlanta into the teens! With this bitter cold comes the threat of damage to buildings from frozen and burst pipes. When temperatures are this low, water can freeze inside pipes. The freezing forces the pipe to expand and burst. Consequently, burst pipes lead to flooding and serious water damage. Just one burst pipe can cause thousands of dollars worth of damage.

Atlanta has seen this problem before. The Polar Vortex of 2014 hit Atlanta in early January and resulted in a record number of catastrophes: thousands of buildings’ pipes broke, causing massive water damage throughout the city. Remediation Group worked on nearly 100 broken pipe and water damage projects in January alone last year.

If you’re home or business experiences burst pipes and water damage, please call Remediation Group. Our team is ready to respond to the many problems that result from these low temperatures. We offer 24-hour Emergency Services to expedite the drying and restoration process. We’ll treat the burst pipes while also helping protect your home from traditional water damage problems like structural deterioration, corrosion, mold and bacteria.
