Emergency Water Damage Tips 

  • Turn-off the water source, if possible contact a qualified professional to stop the water source. SERVPRO of Marietta West can help you turn off the water source if require assistance, but time is of the essence so make sure that you mention that you have active water flow when speaking with our loss coordinators.
  • Shut-off circuit breakers for wet areas of the structure only when access to the power distribution panel is safe from electrical shock. If you are not sure if there is an electrical shock hazard it is better to error on the side of caution than venture into an area that you could be electrocuted. 
  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping and blotting with towels, as long as you are sure that the water is clean and free of hazardous materials like heavy metals, viruses, bacteria, or other microbes. Exposure to hazardous materials can be harmful to your health and require personal protective equipment like tyvek suits, gloves, splash protection for your face and eyes, and even breathing respirators in some cases. Training in the prevention of diseases transmission is also needed when handling and disposing of hazardous material.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting. This creates a barrier between the furniture and wet surfaces and prevents the furniture from absorbing additional moisture through direct contact with the wet surface. This also facilitates the drying process by allowing more room for air to flow around and under furniture.
  • Move any paintings, art objects, computers, documents, and other sensitive valuables to a dry place. These types of items can be very sensitive to moisture and can be damaged just by being exposed to elevated moisture levels. In the case of electronic devices like computers and TVs, these devices can become electrical and or fire hazards when exposed to moisture. 
  • Do not use your household vacuum cleaner to remove water! This could cause electrical shock or damage to the device. The average household vacuum is not rated to be waterproof and will not prevent you from being shocked or even electrocuted if it is exposed to water. If you must use a vacuum cleaner use a wet dry vacuum, meaning that is rated for both dry and wet cleanup operation.
