Water Damage Tips

Water damage and bacteria growth can begin within hours after you experience a loss. To increase your chances of a complete recovery, call ServiceMaster Clean as soon as possible. In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to ensure a more successful restoration.

What to do:

  • Water damage and bacteria growth can begin within hours. Call ServiceMaster Clean immediately.
  • Remove as much water as possible by mopping and blotting.
  • Remove wet area rugs or other removable floor coverings. Do not attempt to start removing wall-to-wall carpet.
  • Lift draperies off the floor, loop through a coat hanger and place the hanger on the drapery rod.
  • Wipe furniture, prop up wet furniture cushions for even drying and place aluminum foil under furniture legs.
  • Move photos, paintings and art objects to a safe, dry location.
  • Do not remove books from shelves. Rather, pack them tightly to prevent warping of pages until a restoration professional can begin this specialized drying.
  • Open drawers, closet and cabinet doors to enhance drying.

What not to do:

  • Do not enter a room with standing water until electricity has been turned off.
  • Do not use a regular household vacuum to remove water.
  • Do not lift tacked-down carpet without professional help.
  • Do not use electrical appliances while on wet carpet or flooring.
  • Do not disturb visible mold.
