3/22/2022 (Permalink)

If you have a water damage from a clean source such as water supply lines, sink overflows, tub overflows, or appliance malfunctions, here are some things to do before SERVPRO arrives. 

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