After water damage, your main focus should be on safety:

  • Is it safe to stay indoors?
  • Electrical hazards and the risk of slips and falls are among the most common problems.
  • Only engage in activities that are safe for you.
  • Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful.
  • Do you have a water damage emergency?

Call (888) 928-1380 (CADPXS Commercial Dehumidifier).

What you should do after a flood?

  • Remove excess water by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe excess water from wooden furniture after removing lamps and tabletops.
  • Remove and prop up wet upholstery and cushions.
  • Place aluminum foil or wooden blocks between furniture legs and wet carpet.
  • Turn on the air conditioner to optimize drying in summer.
  • Remove colored rugs from the wet carpet.
  • Move art supplies to a safe, dry place.
  • Pick up loose items from the floor.
