Here are some quick reference tips to help you get through such an event:
- Call us as soon as you notice water damage has occurred. We want to prevent the growth of mold & bacteria.
- Never use a vacuum on wet flooring as you can get shocked.
- Never go into a room with standing water if your electricity is on. Turn it off first.
- If you can leave the electricity on until we arrive, turn on all the fans you have and your air conditioner. This will reduce the risk of mold, mildew, and bacteria forming. Open doors as well to help with the drying process.
- If the water isnt deep, blot it with large towels and use mops to get as much of it out as you can.
- Remove rugs that you have in place and take them outside. They may be heavy this way so get some help to move them. Do the same with cushions from chairs and couches.
- If your furniture is wet, wipe it down with clean towels. Try to place blocks or other forms of protection if you can to get them out of the water. Even plastic wrap or aluminum foil can help.
- Try to pin up curtains if they are touching the water on the floor. You can also take them down and get them outside to dry.
- Gather up as much valuables as you can as they may be ruined by the water. Even if your insurance will cover most things there will be those that simply cant be replaced such as photos and personal documents.
