What should I do?

This may be your first time experiencing an issue like water or sewage in your home. You have called us, we are on our way, but what do you do now?

 

There are some things you can do to help protect your home and family.

  • Ensure that the water source has been eliminated

 

  • If safe to do so, turn off circuit breakers supplying electricity to wet areas: unplug and remove any small electrical devices currently located in wet rooms

 

  • Remove standing water from flat surfaces by sponging and blotting

 

  • Take up saturated rugs and carpets when hardwood floors are at risk

 

  • Stay out of rooms where ceilings are sagging from retained water

 

  • Transport computers to a dry environment, remove cases and blow dry with low pressure air

 

  • Remove lamps, telephone and decorative items from wet furniture tops

 

  • Open drawers and cabinet doors for interior drying, but do not force open stuck drawers or doors

 

  • Hang draperies and pin up furniture skirts to avoid contact with wet floors which prevents water marks

 

  • Remove books, shoes, paper goods, fabrics, potted plants, or other items that may stain floors coverings

 

  • Remove and secure breakables, moisture-sensitive, or high-value items

Some things to avoid
  • Use of any type of home vacuum, even shop vacs. Electrical shock may occur, as well as potential damage to the equipment

 

  • Placing newspaper in the traffic areas, the ink transfers easily

 

  • Walk on wet carpet any more than necessary to minimize damage.

 

  • Turn on the heating and air conditioning system in case water entered the unit

 

  • Increase or decrease temperature unless instructed by our representative
