Flood & Water

Water Damage

What to Do

Shut off water. Locate the main shut off valve and turn it clockwise (to the right).

• Walk carefully. With all of that water, floors may be very slippery so be careful.

• Get rid of the water. Mop up as much as possible. To improve drying, turn on the air conditioning during the summer or open the windows in the winter.

• Move valuables. Remove artwork, family photos, electronics and other valuables and store them in a safe, dry place.

• Get furniture off the wet floor. Get everything out of the standing water. Arrange furniture and cushions so they’re not touching each other or anything else to maximize airflow and speed drying.

• Get rugs off the floor. If possible hang them in a dry space. At the very least, they should be removed from the room to allow flooring and carpets to dry. They should not be hung on a railing or against a wall, as the moisture will spread.

Clear out the wet area. Move everything that can be moved out. It’ll help dry both the floor and the wet items.

• Open and air out all containers. This includes storage boxes, suitcases, trunks and other containers. Never assume that because it was a container, it didn’t get wet.

• Dry clothing. Dry all clothing as soon as possible. Hang leather garments and furs to dry at room temperature. Leave valuable items to the professionals.

• Call Mammoth Restoration. Water damage is very time sensitive. The faster we get there, the faster we can stop the source of the water to prevent further damage. Even after the water stops, we need to act fast to prevent mold growth.

What Not to Do

• Don’t try to vacuum water. Household vacuums are not designed to remove water. Some shop vacuums are designed for water, but it’s best not to risk it.

• Don’t use anything electrical. Don’t operate any electrical appliances while standing in or near water. This includes fans, TVs, radios, computers or just about anything that is plugged in.

• Don’t go near outlets or plugs. Don’t touch anything electrical in the area, even if there is no visible damage. Electrical damage is often hidden behind walls, totally invisible but quite dangerous.

• Don’t go into rooms with sagging ceilings. A sagging ceiling indicates a water build up. The ceiling could burst at any time, a real danger for anyone underneath it.
