Looking for Water Damage In Your Home

If you know you have water damage there are some tips for you until help arrives. As long as it is safe to stay in the home here are a few things you can do to help protect your home. Remove excess water by mopping and blotting. Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items. Remove and prop wet upholstery and cushions. Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting. Turn air conditioning on for maximum drying in summer. Remove colored rugs from wet carpeting. Remove art objects to a safe, dry place. Gather loose items from floors. While there are many do’s there are also don'ts. Don't leave wet fabrics in place. Hang furs and leather goods. Don't leave books, magazines or other colored items on wet carpet or floors. Don't use your household vacuum to remove water. Don't use television or other household appliances.
