Home Water Damage Emergency Phone Numbers

By Greg Vanden Berge

As a contractor, I'm the one that you call, when ever your home becomes damaged from water. I'm the person who comes out to your home and tries to get it back in shape, so that you can get back to your normal duties of raising your family.

It's not the end of the world, whether you're coming home from a long day at work or waking up and finding out that your carpet is completely saturated and there is 2 inches of water in the bathroom, don't panic, be prepared.

What I would like to suggest, is that these things do happen and when they happen, they can produce group panic. When something like this happens, most people don't even know where to start, who to call or what to say, once someone picks up the phone on the other end. It wouldn't be a bad idea, to have an emergency phone number for someone to contact, especially if something like this was to ever happen.

If it's your homeowners insurance company, make sure that they can provide you with a few additional phone numbers, in case you can't get a hold of them, directly. It wouldn't be a bad idea to have a few local plumbing contractor or even a home water damage repair contractors, phone number available, just in case you can't contact your insurance company.

Make sure that every one in the home, knows where these phone numbers are, just in case there's an emergency. It wouldn't be a bad idea to keep and have a water damage drill in your home. We have fire drills at work and even in our places of education, but we rarely have water damage drills.

Being prepared, prevents frustration and anxiety. Try to make a plan for a your home, just in case there's an emergency like this.
