While hurricanes and floods are the cause of thousands of water damage claims each year, water damage isn’t limited to the wrath of storms. Burst pipes, clogged water lines, toppled water heaters, overflowing toilets, and automatic fire sprinklers also cause their fair share of flooding. Not only must you stop the water from flowing, you must also mop it up. How to Clean Up Water Damage Oak Forest IL 60452 Where to start? Here are a few pointers.

First, it’s important to shut off the water in order to minimize the water damage. This could be as simple as reaching behind the toilet and shutting off the valve or as complicated as locating the home’s main water shut off valve. Take the time now, before a flood, to locate the main Oak Forest IL 60452 shut off valve and learn how to shut off the water. This valve is usually located outside the home in a utility box. Contact your water utility if you are not able to locate it.

While you’re at it, find out where your home’s electrical fuse box or circuit box is located and learn how to turn off power to your Water Damage Restoration Oak Forest IL 60452 home safely. Water and electricity are a deadly combination. Depending on the nature of the flooding, you may need to turn off power to certain areas of the home or the entire building.

Once you have the water and power shut off, you can begin mopping up. If the water is still dripping, take preventative action. For example, if the flood Oak Forest IL 60452 occurred upstairs and the water is seeping through the floor to the room below, place containers beneath to capture the water if possible or cover the carpet with a tarp and place towels on top to absorb the water. If the ceiling is sagging, it means that water is collecting there. It will eventually burst or seep through. Once the Oak Forest IL 60452 floor is protected, poke tiny holes in the ceiling and release the water.

Mop up the water damaged area using absorbent sponges or a wet/dry vacuum cleaner (if it’s safe to do so). Remove as much excess water as possible. Move furniture from the damaged area and dry it off completely. If the upholstery is damaged, remove the cushions, use absorbent Oak Forest IL 60452 sponges to soak up as much water as possible, and place outside to dry.

If the walls are affected, remove paintings and place them in a safe location. You may need to remove wallpaper and repaper the walls once everything has dried out due to the mold concerns.

Open the doors and windows if it’s dryer outside to help remove moisture and Oak Forest IL 60452 speed up the drying process. It’s critical to dry out the area completely to reduce the chance of mold setting in.

Now that you have the basic mop-up complete, you have a few phone calls to make. Call your insurance agent to see if the damage is covered and your local water restoration company to assist with repairs.
