Water Damage Tips for Jacksboro

When I saw the water on my front porch, I knew there was a problem. Sure enough, a supply line failed in my kitchen, and water had flooded downstairs while I was out shopping. I called SERVPRO® of Campbell, Claiborne, Scott, and Union Counties and they gave me some tips  for what I could do while waiting for them to arrive:

After any water damage situation, your primary focus should be safety first:

  • Is it safe to stay in the house?
  • Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns
  • Only do activities that are safe for you to perform
  • Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!

What To Do After Flooding

  • Remove excess water by mopping and blotting
  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items
  • Remove and prop wet upholstery and cushions
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting
  • Turn air conditioning on for maximum drying in summer
  • Remove colored rugs from wet carpeting
  • Remove art objects to a safe, dry place
  • Gather loose items from floors
