After experiencing a flood in your home, it’s crucial to take immediate action to minimize the damage. Here are the steps you should follow:

Use mops, towels, or a wet/dry vacuum to remove as much water as possible from the affected area.

Remove any wet upholstery, cushions, and furniture from the room. This will prevent further damage and allow for better airflow and drying.

Use towels or paper towels to blot excess water from wood furniture. Place blocks of wood or aluminum foil under furniture legs to prevent further water absorption from the wet carpet.

Move any electronics to a dry area. If they have been exposed to water, remove the outer cases and gently dry them using a hairdryer on the lowest setting. Do not use electronics until they are completely dry and have been checked by a professional.

Take personal belongings to a safe, dry place to prevent further damage.

Increase airflow by opening windows, using fans, or turning on the air conditioning or heating system, depending on the season. This will help to dry out the affected area more quickly.
