Water damage is a big problem if you are a homeowner. There are various ways that severe water damage can occur. These ways can include flooding from waterways such as rivers and streams that have swelled past their banks. It can also be caused by appliances that have begun to leak or by a burst pipe. Sewer backups can also lead to flooding in your home and significant water damage. 

When water damage does occur, you have to act quickly.

We recently had a busted pipe in our bathroom while at work, and we had major water damage. Servicemaster was there within a couple hours or our problem to start the process of drying out the house. Derek and his crew were very friendly and helpful in explaining and walking us thru the whole process from beginning to end. If we ever have another emergency like this Servicemaster will be the only people we call!

My insurance agent gave me a list of numbers and Service Master respond to my call within a couple of hours and had someone at my house started on my flooded basement by midmorning. Everyone I spoke with throughout the process was professional and knew what they were doing.

Highly recommend this company! Tuesday afternoon, I came home on my lunch break and stepped into ankle deep water thanks to our water heater busting. We have a one story house on a slab and every single room in the house was flooded. Within a couple hours we had someone from ServiceMaster come out to our house to take a look and he was very nice. He left with the promise that he was going to get his guys out that night to start the cleanup process and he made good on that promise. Within 20-30 minutes of leaving our house, he called to let us know when his guys would be coming. They moved all of our stuff and hooked up so much equipment to help dry our house. I am grateful to these employees for how long they stayed at our house in order to get everything done. Thanks to the quick response on their part, our baseboards and drywall were saved. Thank you for making this terrible situation not so terrible!

How Do You Clean Up Water Damage?

Some specific steps need to be taken to clean up water damage. Before you do anything, you need to consider your personal safety. If your home has been flooded by a natural disaster, then you should not try to reenter it. This is a job that should be tackled by emergency personnel and trained water damage professionals. Floodwaters can be a major hazard to your health and can conceal many hazards. Turning off the power to your home should also be a step that you take before reentering it after a flood. You should always follow good safety practices when dealing with serious water damage. 

Water damage cleanup needs to begin immediately and this includes contacting our team of Louisville water cleanup professionals here at ServiceMaster Fire & Water Damage Restoration. We can quickly assess your situation in this time-sensitive circumstance. It is important to quickly get all of the water out of your home so that the drying process can commence. The drying process can be sped up through the use of fans, dehumidifiers, and by opening up all doors and windows. 

Once we have gotten all of the water out of your home and everything is dry, we can help you in assessing which items of property can be salvaged and which ones are not worth the effort. From there, our team can begin to do the repair and restoration work as well as handling any mold remediation that needs to occur.

How to Clean Up Water Damage on the Ceiling?

Stains on your ceiling that are caused by water damage can be an unsightly thing to have to look at. There are some things that you can do to effectively clean up water damage on your ceiling. They include:

  • Identify the Cause of the Water Stains and Correct It – It is necessary for you to identify the cause of the staining on your ceiling so that you can fix it. This is an issue that is often caused by a roof leak but it could also be caused by issues with your upstairs bathroom or a leaking radiator. Whatever the cause, it needs to be resolved to effectively deal with the situation.
  • Use Bleach to Clean the Ceiling Stain – Combining three cups of warm water with one cup of bleach will create an effective cleaning solution for removing stains on your ceiling. This solution should cause the stain to fade and it should also help to remove issues such as mildew, dust, and dirt that has built up.
  • Utilize a Base Coat of Primer Designed to Block Stains – Your next step is to use a base coat of stain-blocking primer.
  • Paint Over the Primer With Ceiling Paint – Once the primer has dried, you can cover the area with a fresh coat of ceiling paint.
