Water Damage Emergency Steps

Water. It’s all around us. Literally. As humans, our bodies are naturally made up of around 65% water. So it is natural that water would find its way to revolve itself around our world, the same way it revolves around THE world. That doesn’t mean that we should let our lives be submerged by water. Being an essential part of all lives, water is used for a variety of things. Whether it’s cleaning, cooking and of course, staying hydrated, our lives simply cannot function without water. Which means that every household stares at the potential for water damage, every day.

Water damage can come from a variety of places. Whether its water intrusion from a small pipe or a natural disaster that is hitting your home head-on, it can cause a big amount of stress in our everyday lives. If you find yourself in such a situation, CEO Restoration is here to help you ease your mind along the way. At CEO, we’re at the ready 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Taking care of all of your water damage and restoration needs for the greater Central Florida area. We take into account that seeing your home scuba dive might be one of the most stressful things that can happen to you. In doing so, making the process as easygoing as we can.

Once you realize that you’re standing in a water damage situation (almost always literally), your first call should be to CEO Restoration. While we gather our arms and prepare to head to battle with your intrusion source, there are a few things that you can do to get the process started, potentially making the situation swifter and less nerve-racking.

When faced with water damage, start the water extraction process by attempting to remove as much standing water as possible; with a pump, towels, or other devices.

  • After the settled water has been removed, wipe up the area with towels or cloths to begin the drying method
  • Remove any an all items that aren’t secured or permanently attached, like rugs or heavy furniture
  • If possible, place fans or dehumidifiers as soon as all standing water is gone to assist in the drying process


Immediately upon arriving in the scene, we will begin to dispatch our equipment. Once set up, we will begin the water extraction process on all that you could not dry yourself. Our technicians use state of the art, high-tech moisture detection devices and procedures to aid in finding any and all persisting water, down to the very last drop.
