Wooden surfaces and drywall are especially vulnerable to mold and mildew growth after taking on water. If your home takes on water damage, contact the professionals from Paul Davis.

Before Our Specialists Come to Your House

Before a Paul Davis technician appears, there are different measures you can do to help make the restoration faster. From the floors, walls, ceiling, and your favorite possessions, it’s important to act quickly to postpone water damage in your home.

Before cleaning, evaluate the condition of your home. It’s no secret that water and electricity are hazardous together, so search for electrical hazards on the premises before you begin cleanup. Even when powered down, uncovered wiring or wet electronics can pose a threat. To avoid accidents, turn off all breakers and circuits around your property to avoid electrocution.

Water adds weight to surfaces, carpets, and fabrics. The extra weight makes fur, rugs and leather goods difficult to lift. If you have to move a rug, proceed carefully. Hang clothing, draperies and other fabrics away from the soaked area to dry thoroughly.
