It’s always recommended that you contact a pro immediately, there are still some things you can do on your own. Calling the right water restoration company, will help get your home back to normal. Here is a list of helpful tips you can use, to at least ensure your home is safe, until help arrives:

  • Remove lamps, telephones and decorative items from wet furniture tops.
  • Remove standing water from flat surfaces by sponging and mopping.
  • Open drawers and cabinet doors for interior drying, but do not force open stuck drawers or doors.
  • Take up saturated rugs and carpets when hardwood floors are at risk.
  • Ventilate wet areas. Turn on air conditioning for accelerated drying in summer; in winter alternate cycles of opened windows and heating.
  • Never operate any electrical appliances while standing on wet carpet or floors.
  • Freeze valuable books and documents to retard mildew growth until drying can be performed.
  • Avoid rooms where ceilings are sagging from retained water.
  • Place aluminum foil squares, china saucers or wood blocks under furniture legs to avoid carpet staining.
  • Open drawers and remove couch cushions to help every inch of your possessions gain access to dry air.
