What Should I Do First?

Hopefully, you will never need to use this checklist but if water damage or mold removal is needed then read carefully.WDCS works with all insurance

Be Safe

  • Safety is Your #1 Top Priority
  • Do not use any form of electrical equipment or appliances while standing in or on wet floors.
  • Never use electrical equipment that has been water damaged.

Stop the Leak or Drip (Water Source)

  • Prevent any further Damage
  • If water is coming from a burst or leaking pipe, try to find the closest shut off valve and turn it off immediately.
  • If water is coming in through the roof or broken windows, cover as best you can with tarps or plastic.

Document the Damageflood damage in CO

  • Take detailed Notes
  • Take lots of photos and videos. This is key, and the ultimate form of proof for insurance agents.
  • Save all your damaged items. Your claims representative may want to inspect them and compensate you.
  • Keep a list of temporary repairs you make and associated out of pocket costs.
  • Save all claim related bills and receipts to be reimbursed later.

Protect Your Belongings

  • Clean Up as best as possible.
  • Move wet items to drier areas.
  • Place aluminum foil, coasters, or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Remove area rugs from the floor. Dyes in carpets can stain flooring, carpeting and wood floors. Mold can also set in.
  • Clean up as much water as possible by mopping, blotting with towels, and wet vac use.
  • When safe to do so, use fans to circulate air and encourage drying.
