Our Water Damage Tips

Reduce Risk of Electrocution

The immediate concern is your personal safety and the safety of any others in the immediate area. One of the major risks in our modern times is the risk of electrocution, so it can be a good idea to turn off all electricity to the property if there’s a chance that the water damage might reach electrical wiring or plug sockets.

Also, avoid are using lights and fixtures and turning to a regular vacuum cleaner to try to remove water. Vacuums and pumps are one of the most useful tools that we have available to us as a Charlotte water damage repair company, but that’s because we use specialist tools that are designed exclusively to deal with water damage. If you were to use a regular household vacuum cleaner, the best you could hope for would be for it to short circuit.

Protect Your Valueables

Try to mop up some of the water or to absorb it with toilet paper, towels or anything else you have to hand. It’s also a good idea to try to protect your furniture by propping it up on wooden blocks, aluminum foil or anything else you have to hand that you don’t mind ruining. Any valuables should be removed from the area as a matter of course, and if possible you should try to wipe any excess water from wooden floors and furniture to reduce the chance of it rotting.
