We will get a water damage cleanup team on their way to you fast, while you follow these important first steps:
1. Identify the Water Damage Source
If you can safely do so, find the source of the water and shut it off. Turn off water lines or find ways to block outside incoming water access points. Knowing where the water came from can help determine the right treatment. Contaminated water from toilets, septic tanks, or other ground water needs to be handled carefully to avoid spreading bacteria and disease.
2. Watch for and Remove Electrical Risks
Water and electricity don’t mix. Please be very cautious when entering standing water. If you cannot safely enter wet areas, then don’t try. Where you can, remove all lines, cords, and all electronics. Be especially careful handling devices that are battery powered, as wet hands could cause you to get shocked.
3. Remove Small Furniture in Affected Areas
Any furniture that you can safely remove should be removed and taken someplace to dry. If the water was potentially contaminated, be sure to thoroughly clean and disinfect everything as things are removed. Water damage from water that is trapped under furniture during the drying process might not fully dry, creating issues with mold, mildew, and foul odors down the road.
4. Remove small items:
Water damage doesn’t just affect your carpets. Make sure you remove and dry everything you can. Be on the lookout for fragile items, valuables, and anything that could stain or leak into the water. Chemicals that aren’t tightly sealed could be carried through the water, creating a dangerous situation. Items with dyes or oils can spread and may stain carpets, walls and other objects.
Be sure to:
• Wear gloves to protect yourself from spilled chemicals.
• Wear a face mask toprevent breathing in toxins.
• Wear other protective gear like closed-toe shoes to protect your feet.
• Wash and sanitize your hands even if you were wearing gloves
• Sanitize everything you remove from the water.
• Remove drawers, doors and panels from furniture to allow drying.
• Wrap large or heavy furniture legs with aluminum foil or remove them. Check leaking containers, nooks and crannies where water
could linger and let everything dry. Water damage may cause warping or swelling, so allowing wood to dry slowly and fully will help. Don’t force drawers if they get stuck.
5. Our Flood Damage Cleaning Service
Our professional flooded cleaning service crew will arrive quickly to assess the water damage and start the recovery process. We will extract the water, inspect areas where hidden water might still be, and monitor the drying process to make sure every inch of your carpet is dry.
