Water Damage Tips
In just a few hours after the initial disaster, water damage can become irreversible, and bacteria and mold begin to grow. For the best restoration and sanitization results, call ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning immediately. While you wait for the professionals, you can take steps to get the process started. Follow these tips to prepare for the restoration to begin:
What to do:
- Act immediately to prevent additional damage and prevent mold growth. Call ServiceMaster of Jackson and ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning.
- Mop up small quantities of water.
- Move area rugs out of the affected space.
- Curtains and drapery should be looped through a hanger and kept off the ground.
- Place furniture legs on aluminum foil and wipe down damp furniture.
- Prop cushions and pillows up to allow airflow.
- Remove photos, artwork, and any small or delicate items from the affected rooms.
- Leave books in place on bookshelves, but pack them together tightly so that the pages are kept straight, and have a book restoration expert properly care for these.
- Open cabinets and drawers so air can flow around them.
- Open doors for increased airflow throughout your home. Depending on the weather and humidity, opening the windows may be recommended, but it is best to consult a professional first.
What not to do:
- Do not enter any space with standing water until the electricity has been shut off.
- Do not attempt to extract water using a household vacuum; this is only possible with a wet/dry vac or professional equipment.
- Do not remove tacked-down carpet.
- Do not stand on wet flooring or in a wet area while using an electrical appliance.
- Do not touch or attempt to remove visible mold, as this can lead to further spreading the mold if proper containment practices are not followed.
