After Water Damage
Water is an essential part of many cleaning processes, but under some circumstances although it usually cleans, it can damage articles. The harmful effect of water is sharply reduced by prompt and astute action. Some procedures are obvious; others require foresight and experience. The following Emergency Tips have been compiled from many years of experience in water damage repair and cleaning.
- Remove as much water as possible by mopping or blotting.
- Wipe water from wood furniture after removing lamps and tabletop items.
- Remove and prop up wet upholstery cushions for even drying (check for possible bleeding).
- Place aluminum foil, china saucers, or wooden blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
- Open drawers and cabinet doors for complete drying (do not force).
- Remove valuable paintings and art objects to a safe place.
- Open suitcases and luggage to dry.
- Punch small holes in sagging ceilings to relieve trapped water (don't forget to place pans beneath).
- Leave wet fabrics in place, dry as soon as possible. Hang furs and leather goods to dry separately at room temperature.
- Leave books, magazines, or other colored printed items on wet carpets or floors.
- Use your household vacuum to remove water.
- Use TVs or other appliances while standing on wet carpets or floors, especially on wet concrete floors.
- Turn on ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet, and keep out of rooms where ceilings are sagging from retained water.
- Put wet contents on top of dry contents.
Instructions for Drying Equipment
- Do not turn off the equipment until Payless technicians tell you the area is dry.
- If the equipment must be turned off to sleep, turn it back on as soon as possible. The longer the equipment runs, the sooner it will be gone.
- Keep the room temperature at 70 degrees minimum.
- If an air mover must be moved, unplug it and wait until the fan stops.
- If the carpet with an air mover under it begins to move vigorously (flop a lot), turn off the air mover and call us.
- Check the dehumidifier daily to ensure the coil in the back is not frozen. If it is, unplug, raise the room temperature to 70 degrees F, allow the coil to thaw, and plug the dehumidifier back in.
- If windows must be opened for fresh air, open a minimal amount so as not to slow the drying process.
- The drying equipment is designed to run 24 hours a day. If you see there is a problem (unusual noise or hot odor), unplug the unit and call us.
- Do not let unattended children or pets around the equipment while in operation.
- You may be asked to empty the dehumidifier water collector, if you are able.
