HERE ARE SOME EMERGENCY TIPS TO HELP YOU OUT IN CASE OF WATER DAMAGE:

WHAT TO DO

  • Damage from water and bacteria growth can begin within hours. Call for professional help.

  • Remove as much water as possible by mopping and blotting.

  • Remove wet area rugs or other floor coverings not permanently attached. Do not attempt to start removing your wall-to-wall carpet.

  • Lift draperies off the floor, loop through a plastic 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. Instead, pack them tightly to prevent warping of pages until a restoration professional can begin this specialized drying.

  • Open drawers, closets and cabinet doors to enhance drying.
