During these unprecedented times, we take our role as an essential service provider seriously and we remain open to service our customers. We understand that everyone is very concerned with the potential spread of the Coronavirus. We’re following the guidelines put in place by the federal government, local governments and the CDC.
Below are some of the safety precautions we’ve implemented to protect our team and our clients:
There are a number of things that can cause a flood in your basement including a water heater failure, washing machine hose break, heavy rain, hurricanes, or burst pipes. Whatever caused the problem, you must act quickly to minimize even more damage. Even an inch of water can be devastating.
If the water is the result of a pipe or water heater, turning off the master valve may help staunch the incoming water.
Never enter water where power lines are submerged. Turn off the power, then remove any electronics and wires from the wet areas.
The faster you can remove possessions, the less chance of damage. Bring all portable items to higher ground, and dry each item as you remove it.
Let the water drain on its own through drainage systems, use mops and towels, or call in professionals to remove standing water. If using a wet/dry vac, plug it in away from the water and do not use an extension cord.
Let your insurance company know that you have damage due to flooding. They will advise you as to any steps you should take.
Remove carpeting, underpadding, and area rugs.
Remove areas of baseboard trim, drywall and interior insulation where water has accumulated. Let the areas dry out before repairing the drywall.
Use fans and a dehumidifier to help the area dry out completely, and open the windows if the weather is dry.
Once the area is dried out, disinfect all areas including floors, walls, wood, and non-upholstered furniture. Apply mold preventive.
Do not keep water-damaged items. They may harbor bacteria that will create mold and mildew problems in short time. Call 123JUNK and we will haul away possessions, carpeting, drywall, trim, electronics, and other items that are not salvageable for you.
You have had enough stress with the water damage and loss of possessions. Trust 123JUNK’s courteous and professional junk haulers to take at least part of the load off your shoulders. One call, answered by a caring individual, a simple all-inclusive quote, and a pickup date is all it takes to get the job done.
