Water Removal Services Available In Highland Park
It is quite obvious that coming home to a house full of water is something that we would all rather avoid. However, if you are quick enough in responding to the situation, it is entirely possible to minimize the damage and possibly save many of your possessions. Avoid treating flood water situations in your Highland Park home lightly. Water removal is essential to protecting your furniture, carpet, flooring, and other household contents, along with preventing mold growth from developing that may cause health effects.
Locating a quality company to help you with your water removal can be tough. However, there are a few, like SERVPRO, that not only provide you with the services you need to return your home to a quality pre-damage condition, but they also give you a list of things you can do to help yourselves. At SERVPRO, we cannot stress enough how important safety is during these types of situations. Make sure that you and your entire family are safe before you do anything else. However, you should also contact your insurance company and touch base to ensure you have the proper coverage before you contact a restoration company for help.
Meanwhile, there are a few things you can do to help limit your losses. Start by making sure that the structure is safe to enter, shut off the power to the building, unplug any electronics and relocate small objects to a safe location where they can dry properly. Just remember, you do not have to do anything, SERVPRO technicians are perfectly willing and able to remove anything and everything caught in the affected area.
However, if you insist on getting a head start, anything that you find on your carpet or flooring throughout the affected area that is easily moveable should be; this includes newspapers, magazines, lamps, clocks, radios, televisions, coat racks, and other household items. Just remember that some of these things may be rather heavy due to exposure, so, only carry what you can safely lift on your own. Leave your carpet and heavy furniture to the professional technicians that are on the way.
Do not turn on your air conditioning or fan trying to dry out the affected area. If you insist on attempting water removal with a mop, remember to dab your flooring with the mop, do not swipe it back and forth, or you may end up causing damage to your flooring if you do it wrong. Again, please do not do anything you are not comfortable doing, your technicians are on the way.
