Water Damage Tips

  • Shut off the water source, if possible.

  • Don’t use a regular vacuum to remove water.

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

  • Turn air conditioning on for maximum drying in summer; open windows to speed drying in winter.

  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping or blotting.

  • Don’t leave books, magazines, or other colored items on wet carpeting.

  • Wipe water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items.

  • Remove and prop up wet upholstery cushions for even drying. (Check for possible bleeding)
