Until SERVPRO Arrives!

5/4/2017 (Permalink)

If you ever have a water damage from a clean source, lets say water supply lines, sink overflows, tub overflows, or appliance malfunctions, here are some things you can do before SERVPRO arrives:

  • Shut off the main source of the water.
  • Turn off all circuit breakers for wet areas of the home or business if the access panel is safe from electrical shock.
  • Remove as much of the excess water as possible by mopping it up and blotting.
  • Wipe all the excess water from wood furniture after removing all lamps and tabletop items.
  • Remove and prop up all wet upholstery cushions for an even drying process.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between all furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Remove to a safe, dry place all paintings, art objects, computers, documents and other materials that are of value and sensitive to moisture.
  • Use wooden clothespins to keep all furniture from skirting off damp floors.
  • Hang all draperies with coated hangers to avoid them having contact with wet carpeting or floors.
