Prior to our arrival, there are some quick-fixes you can do to temporarily slow down the damage. Each piece of furniture needs protection:
Ceilings: Punch small holes in the ceiling to relieve trapped water. Place a plastic bucket under the leak. Refrain from turning on the lights or lighting fixtures while the water is dripping.
Carpet: Lay down towels on your carpet and blot the soaking patches. Set up a fan on the carpet to speed up the drying process.
Floors: Avoid leaving puddles standing: mopping, drying, or setting up buckets will help.
Furniture: Move small items to another room and cover heavier pieces of furniture with plastic wrap or plastic bags.
Air Conditioner: Turn on your air conditioner (no lower than 72 degrees) to help dry.
Books/Magazines: Do not leave them laying on wet carpet as the pages will bleed. Dispose of any books that you don't need, but save and relocate valuable ones to be restored.
Remember: Where there is a drip there can be damage. Call us at the first signs of water damage and we will be there to help you confidently restore your home.
