3/11/2022 (Permalink)

When the water stops flowing, and whatever caused the leak or flooding is out of the way, it's time to let our skilled technicians take over. Our technicians go right to work restoring your property so that you don't have to worry about replacing everything you think you've lost. We can help you avoid costly replacements by fulfilling your restoration needs, why would you replace something that you can quickly restore?

Consider using the best water damage restoration service in Homewood! We can provide you with the services you need to return your property to its original condition. Let our staff at SERVPRO give you some much-needed advice on how to deal with the water damage you've received from a water leak. 

First and foremost, is it safe to enter your property? Have you made certain to turn off your electricity? Are there any immediate dangers or slip and fall hazards?

Your wood furniture, lighting fixtures, and other tabletop items can be blotted down with a clean, dry towel to remove excess water and move to a safe location to start their drying process. Cushions and other upholstery items can also be relocated to a safe location and should be propped up to assist in drying. If your water damage situation happens during the summer months, you can turn your air conditioning on to help with the drying process.

You should remove any colored tapestry, rugs or carpeting to prevent color bleeding and place your art objects somewhere that they can dry safely and gather any other loose items you find lying around. Don't leave soaked fabrics lying around and pick up any books, magazines or colored paper products like newspapers to prevent them from staining your carpet or flooring.

Refrain from using any of your electrical items, such as a television or household appliances until they have had a chance to dry. These items include lighting fixtures, ceiling fans, clocks, coffee makers and microwaves, just to name a few! Rooms with wet saggy ceilings are a hazard! Make sure that you avoid these areas until they have a chance to be inspected!

These few tips can make a difference in restoring your items and property to its original condition. Don't take a chance or consider something lost until our expert technicians at SERVPRO have had the opportunity to inspect everything that has taken damage.
