Flooding Tips!

9/18/2020 (Permalink)

Today we are sharing some tips on what to do and not to do if you experience flood waters in your home! First do NOT use your household vacuum to try and suck up water! If you have a shop vac laying around we recommend trying that. Second, If you know your ceiling is wet do not turn on any ceiling fixtures! Third don't leave wet wet fabrics hanging! Hang your furs and leathers! Now that we've shared some things not to do, here are some good things that will help the process. If you can, turn on your air conditioning for maximum drying in the summer! Remove colored rugs from wet carpeting! Remove artwork from walls and move to a safe dry area! Store any contents in your basement in plastic tubs with lids! Plastic will withstand water much better than cardboard which will disintegrate! Removing as much wet content from the flooded area will also help speed up the process. Hopefully these tips help you if you're ever in a flood situation.
