Tips for Water Damage Restoration in Tampa
You wake up one night and listen carefully, cringing at the sound of what seems to be running water somewhere in your home. Once you get up to investigate, you find that a pipe, or two, have busted and your home is covered in three inches of water from the front to the back. Now is the time to not only call the plumber, but also to call in the Water Damage Restoration in Tampa professionals to try and save anything that is valuable to you. Below are some tips on how to start repairing the damage while you are waiting on the plumber and the Water Damage Restoration in Tampa professionals to arrive.
The first thing you will want to do, of course, is shut off the water valve so that the steady pouring of water into your home stops. Next, you will want to open all of the windows and doors to start airing and drying out your home. If you have any ceiling fans or box fans, you will want to turn them on to start drying your floors and carpeting before damage and mildew starts to set in.
Next, pick up any trash that you need to throw away and set aside any valuables that you hope can be saved by the water damage restoration specialist that you called, when you called the plumber. These things are better left to the professionals, while you take care of the cleanup.
Once all of the above is taken care of, you will want to take a broom and sweep up all of the water that you can find. Sweep it out of the front door if possible, then mop up the remainder of the floors. If you have help doing this, it will go much faster and you wont be as exhausted when you are finished.
Water damage is a hard thing to have to deal with, but if you follow the steps above you will be fine, and your home and valuables should be repaired and in good condition in no time at all.
