Water Damage Response Tips for Property Owners

If you’ve experienced water damage and want to know what you can do until help arrives, take a moment to read the following Water Damage Response Tips for Property Owners. These tips will assist you in taking the proper action until SERVPRO of Bartow County arrives. The following tips will help reduce damage and increase the chances of a successful restoration:

*These tips are for clean water situations only.

  • Shut-off the water source if possible, and if it can be done safely.
  • Turn-off circuit breakers for wet areas of the building, when access to the power distribution panel is safe from electrical shock.
  • Remove excess water by mopping and blotting standing water from floors. Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removing lamps and tabletop items.
  • Remove and prop up wet upholstered cushions for even drying. Do not put cushion covers in the washing machine.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks under furniture legs.
  • Hang furs and leather goods separately at room temperature. Hang draperies with coated hangers to avoid contact with wet carpeting or floors. Use clothespins to keep furniture skirting off damp floors.
  • Remove Oriental or other colored rugs from wet carpet.
  • Do not enter rooms with standing water where electrical shock hazards may exist.
  • Do not use a house-hold vacuum to remove water.
  • Do not use TVs or other appliances while standing on wet carpets or floors, especially not on wet concrete floors.
  • Do not turn on ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet, and keep out of areas where ceilings are sagging from retained water.
  • Do not leave books, magazines or other colored items on wet carpeting.

Water Damage From Contaminated Water

Avoid all contact with sewage and items contaminated by sewage. Wash your hands thoroughly after contact with contaminated items. Use products for personal hygiene and cleanliness if exposed to the contaminated areas. Make sure not to spread contaminated water by walking unnecessarily on damaged or wet areas. Turn off the HVAC system in effort to limit the possibility of spreading contaminated air to non-affected areas. Call SERVPRO of Bartow County if you have experienced water damage, so we can start the drying and mitigation process as soon as possible. A quick response can be the difference between a small manageable repair bill and a costly insurance claim. 

Components of Proper Water Damage Restoration
