Check for Danger

Indoor flooding can cause thousands of dollars worth of damage to your home, and it’s a nightmare to clean up. Here’s what to do when you notice water damage and how to safely begin the process of remediation.

Set up for Successful Drying

Drying a water damaged building requires knowledge and tools most homeowners rarely need. You’ll probably want to contact a restoration company to assist with moderate to heavy drying.

If you have light water damage, you may be able to deal with it yourself. Place floor fans approximately 12′ along the room(s) perimeter, pointing the air flow in a clockwise direction. This creates a vortex with the air, pushing the air to the outside of the room.
