Make sure you call ServiceMaster of North Texas once you discover water damage and take the following actions to start the recovery:
Water Damage Cleanup – What to Do

- Avoid any contact with the flood water if you suspect there may be sewage.
- Move damaged items to an unaffected area to figure out what should be disposed of and what can be salvaged.
