When you suffer water damage to your Cincinnati home, whether from a leaking roof, a broken hot water heater, or even from water used by the fire department to put out a fire, the longer it goes untreated, the more long-term damage you can end up with.
The first thing that needs to be addressed is your safety. You want to make sure there is no standing water where there is an electrical source.
Once that is addressed, you will want to make sure that the source of the leak is stopped to prevent further damage. Then you need to make sure your belongings are protected. That often means having your belongings “packed out” and put into a secure location.
After all of those issues are addressed, you will need to have the water extracted, while at the same time dryers may be placed to dry out the affected areas to prevent mold and mildew. Deodorizers may also be used to prevent a moldy smell in the home.
Then the restoration process begins; meeting with the adjuster, drawing up a scope for the necessary work, and then contracting the company you choose to begin the work. Be assured that if that company is Griffin, we will work closely with you and the insurance company to get the best restoration job for you and put your house back to its original condition.
