What to Do If You Discover Water Damage in Your Business
If you recently experienced a flood, leak, backup, or another type of water damage, you may be wondering what to do next. Take the following steps during the aftermath of a water event to reduce long-term damage:
- In the case of plumbing leaks, shut off the water so the flooding stops. Call a plumber to help with this if necessary.
- Shut off the electrical breaker to prevent electrocution.
- Call Flood & Fire Solutions for immediate emergency response. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- Place aluminum foil under any furniture that comes in contact with wet carpet to prevent staining.
- Remove everything you can from the building, including books and papers, fabrics, potted plants, and other items that could stain wet carpet.
- Call your insurance company to file a claim. All policies require business owners to report losses “as soon as reasonably possible.”
Avoid doing any of the following:
- Using a vacuum cleaner: Electrical shock and equipment damage could occur if you attempt to vacuum saturated carpet.
- Setting down newspaper to walk on: Newsprint ink easily transfers to wet carpet, which could cause permanent staining.
- Walking on wet carpet more than necessary: Remove everything you need to from the building, and then stay out to avoid spreading or worsening the damage.
As soon as you call Flood & Fire Solutions, you can expect our team to prepare and implement a water restoration plan for your business. As an independently owned and operated company, we have earned a reputation for delivering outstanding customer service and maintaining an open line of communication. Thanks to our fast response time, you can expect to return to business as usual in the shortest time frame possible.

I’ve found flooding – what should I do first?
If you’ve noticed the signs of flooding in your home or business, your first instinct may be to call your insurance company. Resist this urge and call our restoration company first. Water cleanup is time sensitive, and the faster our team can start, the less costly the repairs will be. Call Flood & Fire Solutions then your insurance to start the claim. Your adjuster will work with us to cover the work we’ve already done, if your home qualifies for flood coverage.
What Are the Steps to Restore a Property After Floodwater Damage?
There are multiple steps involved in water damage restoration. These include:
- Removing standing water
- Using dehumidifiers and specialty equipment to dry the area over several days
- Testing the area using thermal imaging and moisture meters to ensure it is dry
- Sanitizing the affected area
- Fixing any remaining damage, including repairing wood floors, removing drywall, cleaning carpet, and controlling odors, if necessary
- Mold remediation, if necessary
How much does water damage restoration cost?
The size of the area and extent of the flood damage both directly impact the cost of your water damage restoration. Your insurance policy will also impact how much you will pay, if you have coverage for the type of flooding you experienced.
Never ignore water damage because you are worried about cost - it can quickly spread and destroy your property. For a personalized quote for water damage restoration in Macomb or the surrounding areas, contact Flood & Fire Solutions.
Does Water Damage Cause Mold?
Yes, water damage is a leading cause of mold growth. Mold requires moisture to grow, and that’s what water damage creates. In fact, mold growth can start within 24 hours after a flood, which is why you need to act quickly when you have water damage.

Water damage and flooding happen for many reasons, including:
- Appliance problems
- Heavy rain or storms
- Burst or leaking pipes or supply lines
- Roof leaks and ice dams
- Drain backups
- Sink and bathtub overflows
