Water damage inside the home can be an unhealthy, costly, and incredibly frustrating problem for homeowners. Whether it comes on slowly through a leaking pipe or quickly from an overflowing sewer system, excess water in the home needs to be addressed as soon as possible. The first step in trying to mitigate the problem yourself is to locate the main water valve in the home and turn it off. You should then contact your insurance company, try to determine what kind of water is present, and call water damage restoration professionals.
The three types of water encountered during a leak are clean, grey, and black. Grey and black water can pose significant health risks to those with respiratory problems, young children, and the elderly; they should therefore be evacuated from the scene.
