TIPS FOR WHEN WATER HITS
After placing a call to SERVPRO for water damage, our certified crew is headed your way and is ready to get to work on restoring your home as soon as possible! In addition, there are a couple of things you can do to prevent any further damage while we are en route to your home.
The first thing you can do is try removing as much water as you can by blotting or mopping. The second thing you can do is pick up any colored rugs, fabrics, books, and magazines to prevent these items from bleeding into the carpet. Third, do not use your household vacuum cleaner to soak up the water! Using a standard vacuum is extremely dangerous due to electrical hazards and will damage your vacuum. To achieve maximum drying, turn on your air conditioner instead. Fourth, to prevent your furniture from any further damage, place aluminum foil or wood blocks under furniture legs.
No one knows what the future holds, but you do know who to call when the future holds water damage! Your team at SERVPRO hopes these tips are beneficial and can be used to help you in case of unexpected water damage.
