What to Do When Flooding Affects Your Home

When you wake up or come home to a flooded basement or other water damage, the first thing to remember is to remain calm. Almost all water damage can be repaired, and getting those repairs started is a simple three-step process:

  • Assess the situation. If the situation puts you in danger (of electrical shock or otherwise), make sure you and your family stay safely away from danger. Take note of any damaged valuables. If it’s safe to do so, try to remove furniture and other objects from the flooded area.
  • Call your insurance company or broker. A representative will open a claim for you and give you a list of flood restoration companies in your area. In all likelihood, if you live in Harrisburg, Chambersburg, or Carlisle, Tuckey Restoration will be on that list. If not, don’t worry — you can still count on us for expert, hassle-free repairs. Always remember that you can work with a restoration company of your choosing – one that you trust – regardless of your insurance carrier’s “preferred network.”
  • Call Tuckey Restoration. In most cases, all we need is a claim number to get started. Whether or not we’re on their list of preferred vendors, we’ll contact your insurer directly to begin the repair process at once.

We Are the Restoration Experts

FEMA Warns Against Mold IssuesOur team knows that flooding is as much a personal issue as it is a construction challenge. At Tuckey Restoration, we understand that the best service we can provide as a flood restoration company is to help you live as you normally would while repairs are in process. That means reducing the number of headaches, hassles, and red tape — and it means working with your insurer to resolve your claim in a timely manner.

As part of our mission to make water damage restoration as painless as we can, we also help our customers with both phases of the process. Many companies offer only mitigation or reconstruction services. While mitigation addresses the direct aftermath of flooding, reconstruction gets the area back to its old appearance. Everyone needs both kinds of services after a flood, so why work with two different companies along the way? We’re pleased to be a full-service restoration contractor, handling both the mitigation (or emergency response) and reconstruction phases of your project.

We are a preferred vendor for a number of major insurance carriers and a member of national industry associations. Our company maintains memberships in the Restoration Industry Association, Associated Builders and Contractors, Disaster Kleenup International, and Crawford Contractor Connection. Leveraging these world-class networks, we have the resources and experience to facilitate the timely – and thorough – resolution of your restoration project.
