Your home is your haven and a flood or broken pipe can turn your haven into a disaster zone. Even if loss and damages are minimal, it is heartbreaking to lose any of the things that make your house a home, and the water damage restoration process can take a few weeks. These tips will help you stay sane during the process.
Create a Safe Space
If you still have a clean and livable room or two in your home, turn them into your safe space. However, having a construction crew in the home you are living in can be disruptive—so your safe space may be an Airbnb, hotel, or the home of friends or family.
Mold remediation and water damage restoration should be left in the hands of the trusted professionals at Entrusted. In the meantime, you can get to work deciding how you want your home to look once they are finished. For example, now might be a good time for a new paint color or wall covering. If the flooring needs to be replaced, decide what you want it replaced with. You can also start picking out the new furniture, home accessories, and other items that need to be replaced.
Schedule in Fun
As the initial shock wears off, shopping for your new belongings can be quite fun—but also schedule some additional fun activities to get you out of the house and serve as a positive distraction. If it fits in your budget, now is the perfect time for a vacation. At the very least head to the movies, go bowling, have a barbeque, schedule time with friends and family, or do something that will take your mind off the stress at home.
