SERVPRO of Woodland Hills Water Damage Tips
Water damage cleanup tips form SERVPRO of Woodland Hills -
- Don't enter any water damaged areas without conducting a thorough safety check. It may not be safe for you to enter or remain in the building. • Water damage can weaken the structure of the building. If the ceilings are sagging, stay out. • Be sure the electricity has been shut off. Submerged electrical appliances and electronics can cause electrical shock.
- Remove standing water, use towels to soak up smaller pools of water on furniture, counters, and other surfaces. If the area is flooded with more than a foot or two of water, wait for a professional water damage remediation team like SERVPRO of Woodland Hills to arrive.
- Remove area rugs from and spread them outside to dry. Place aluminum foil or wood blocks under furniture legs to prevent carpet stains. When wood furniture is exposed to excessive moisture, the stain can transfer to the carpet leaving permanent marks. Remove smaller items such as books, toys, chairs, and other objects from the area.
When in doubt you can always call your local SERVPRO for advice or a free inspection to help you and your property get back to "Like it never even happened."
