What To Do Until Help Arrives
Until the water restoration professionals are SERVPRO arrive, there are a few things you can do to help with damage to your home, condo, or apartment.
Move anything of value out of the affected room that you are able to: photos, important documents, artwork, etc. Take old books, or pieces of scrap wood and use them to elevate your furniture. Place wood, books, or even brinks underneath the feet of your furniture to raise them above the waterline. This will help prevent any fabric or wood damage to your couches, chairs, tables, and other furniture of value.
If you own a Shock Vac or have a neighbor to borrow one from, use it to help remove water that has a puddle in your home and help prevent further damage to your carpet or hardwood flooring. Open all the windows in your home, and turn on any ceiling fans. Also set up any other fans you might have. This will help start the drying process.
Make sure to take pictures of all the damaged areas. This includes walls, baseboards, carpets, hardwood flooring, and all valuables. This will be important to turn into your insurance company when you file your claim. The more you document, the easier it will be to file your claim.
