Broken pipes, leaky appliance and heavy rainstorms can teach an unexpected lesson on the destructive power of water. One unforeseeable release of water and suddenly your home and furnishings are in serious peril. A little knowledge about what to do, combined with quick action, can help salvage your home and personal items. In most cases, a professional can repair water-damaged flooring and furnishings, but do not attempt to treat these items yourself as it may only contribute to the problem and cause further damage. However, you can take a few steps to prepare for help to arrive.
The Clean Team and the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) recommend the following actions to minimize damage while waiting for help to arrive:
Call for help. Contact a certified water restoration firm to preserve your home and furnishings from the destructive effect of water. Trained technicians using professional inspecting and drying equipment can identify hidden water pockets and dry both your structure and furnishings to accepted industry standards.
Stop the water leak. Attend to obvious safety hazards, like electrical shock and personal injury from slips and falls. Increase air flow. Open windows and turn on fans, heating, and air conditioning systems.
Promote drying. Open doors, drawers, cupboards and closets to maintain optimal air circulation and promote drying.
Protect your furniture. Move furnishings out of wet areas or protect furniture legs from absorption and damage with triple-folded aluminum foil.
Protect fabrics. Hang up draperies and pin up upholstery skirts to prevent water rings. Allow leather items to dry at room temperature. Wash wet household items. Wash wet clothes, sheets and linens immediately and hang washable fabrics up to dry.
Prevent mold and mildew. Do not store damp items in plastic bags where mold can grow.
