Whether it's due to a flood, a broken pipe or a leak, no one is immune to water damage. It's normal to feel caught off guard when the unexpected happens. However, be reassured, there are solutions at your fingertips in the event of a disaster.

Evacuate the Water Fast

If you haven't been able to prevent water damage to your home, you can limit the damage by reacting quickly to the situation. Your first reflex should be to vacuum as much water as possible and contact your insurance company after.

Once you have made this phone call, it's time to take action! There is a consensus among insurers: it’s important to remove as much water as possible within the first 24 hours. This will prevent mould accumulation and avoid any additional damage to your home. By getting rid of water quickly you can avoid an increase in insurance fees and with luck, you might not have to make any claims at all.

How to Evacuate the Water Following a Disaster?

The best way to get rid of water after an incident is with a wet/dry vacuum cleaner. This is where Drainvac can help you with by offering two solutions: a central vacuum that can collect water or a portable vacuum that can be placed over a toilet bowl or a floor drain.

These two options have several advantages over a “shop-vac” type As you can vacuum unlimitedly without having to stop to empty your device. A central vacuum system gives you the option to never be caught off guard while a portable vacuum is a good alternative if your piping does not allow you to have a central vacuum.

Having to deal with water damage isn't something you wish for, even if you're unable to prevent the inconvenience caused by such an event, acting fast allows you to limit further damages. To know which product is the best for you, don’t hesitate to compare the DV2A310-CB and the DV2P56!
