SERVPRO of Corona will arrive promptly to your home but in the meantime, you can take steps to prevent further damage.
In the unfortunate event of a leak in your home, the following are some helpful tips on what TO DO until SERVPRO of Corona can assess the water damage.
- Shut off the source of water if possible or contact a qualified party to stop the water source.
- Turn off circuit breakers for wet areas of the building, when access to the power distribution panel is safe from electrical shock.
- Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting.
- Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removing lamps and tabletop items.
- Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
- Remove and prop up wet upholstery cushions for even drying.
- Remove to a safe, dry place any paintings, art objects, computers, documents and other materials that are valuable or sensitive to moisture.
- Use wooden clothespins to keep furniture skirting off damp floors.
- Hang draperies with coated hangers to avoid contact with wet carpeting or floors.
- Hang Furs and leather goods to dry separately at room temperature.
SERVPRO of Corona will take care of the rest!
