Water Damage Mitigation Tips
While we encourage you to contact our experts in times of need, we would still like to leave you with advice on how you can prevent excess water damage to your property and possessions. This can be done if water damage is minimal (though we recommend bringing out an expert to examine the full extent of the damage), or if you would like to be proactive while you wait for help to arrive.
- Remove as much water as possible through mopping or “blotting”.
- Hang up area rugs and other loose floor coverings. Do not attempt to remove set carpet or flooring.
- Place smaller possessions in high and dry areas.
- Prop up wet cushions and pillows, and place tin foil under the legs of your furniture to separate them from water and moisture.
- Open cabinets and drawers to allow increased air circulation.
- *Do not enter areas with standing water, as electric, bacterial, and other hazards may be present!
