Water Damage Cleanup Checklist
- If possible, eliminate the source of the water. With a broken pipe, try to find the shut off valve. It may be necessary to close the water main to the house.
- If it’s safe, try to find the circuit breakers sending electricity to the wet areas and turn them off.
- If it’s safe to do so, remove electrical devices from wet areas.
- Try to avoid walking on the carpet that has been affected. This can cause more damage.
- If it is possible to remove furniture from the areas with water, you can help avoid furniture and permanent rust stains. Another trick is to put aluminum foil under the legs of sofas, chairs and tables.
- Pin up anything hanging near the wet floors, including furniture skirts and draperies.
- Remove as many high-value, breakable or moisture-sensitive belongings as possible and anything that can stain the floors. Things to look for are fabric, paper goods, shoes, and even potted plants. Be sure to look under furniture and beds.
- Remember, these are CONTAMINATED areas. Wash your hands often and use gloves if possible.
- DO NOT use a shop-vac or home vacuum for water removal because it can be an electrical shock hazard.
- Do not turn on heat or air-conditioning to start the drying. Especially if the flooding involves sewage, it can spread the contamination throughout your home. We have special equipment that we will set up as soon as it is safe.
