How to limit the damage
While awaiting the arrival of our team, you shouldn’t use any electrical appliances, including TVs, refrigerators or air conditioners.
And, you should avoid using an ordinary vacuum cleaner to clean wet floors, carpets or upholstery unless the equipment is labeled for both “wet-or-dry” use.
Be careful to keep everyone out of rooms in which the ceilings are waterlogged and sagging. You should also avoid using the light fixtures and electrical outlets in those rooms.
If it’s safe to enter the flooded area, you can help reduce water damage by wiping away excess water from surfaces. Also, it helps to move dyed or colored items away from porous surfaces, so the colors won’t “bleed.”
You should also retrieve valuables and important papers and remove them from wet areas, in order to reduce the chance of mold. As well, any fur or leather items should immediately be placed in a dry area with good air flow.
