Carpet cleaning tips
Water damage restoration tips
My floors are wet, what should I do first?
Your first concern should be the safety of you and your family. DO NOT operate TV’s, vacuums or other appliances while standing on wet floors, especially wet concrete floors. Do not enter into areas where ceilings are sagging from retained water.
Is there anything I can do while I wait for someone to get here?
Yes. You are required by most insurance policies to take immediate steps to mitigate damages. Your first step after calling Emergency Services is to contact us so we can reduce the damage and remove the water from your carpets. Next you can do the following:
Ventilate wet area
Remove standing water by sponging or blotting
Take up saturated rugs and carpets when wood floors are at risk
Transport computers and artwork to a dry environment
Remove lamps, telephones from wet furniture tops
Basic stain treatment included
Open drawers and cabinet doors for interior drying, but do not force open if stuck
Freeze valuable books and documents to retard mold growth
Place aluminum foil squares under wood furniture legs to prevent staining of carpet and absorption by the wood
