What You Can Do In a Water Damage Emergency
Step 1: Cleaning Walls and Floors
Unplug everything first. Before you begin cleaning, unplug everything. It is very dangerous to enter a water damaged home if electronics are plugged in.
Carefully unplug everything from the wall and turn off any appliances before you begin cleaning.
Soak up as much water as possible with a wet/dry vacuum. If you don't have a wet/dry vacuum, you can rent one at a hardware store.
To begin the process of drying out the floor and walls, run the vacuum over your floors, walls, and anywhere else where you notice built up water damage. Sop up as much set-in water as possible with the wet/dry vacuum.
Steam clean the carpet. For water damaged carpet, your best option is steam cleaning. You can rent a steam cleaner at a local hardware store if you do not own one.
Run the steam cleaner over the water damaged carpet to remove moisture and clean your carpeting. For very water damaged carpet, professional steam cleaning may be the best option.
Disinfect everything. Water damage can cause the build-up of bacteria in your walls, floors, and carpeting. Disinfecting these areas to remove water damage is important.
You can buy a disinfectant cleaner at a local grocery store or hardware store. If possible, ask a worker for a disinfectant specifically designed to treat water damage. Scrub down your walls and floors with the disinfectant.
Apply a product to prevent mold growth. Mold growth can occur, especially in wood, after water damage. After cleaning and disinfecting your floors and walls, apply a product that inhibits mold growth.
Purchase your product at a hardware store or department store. Apply it according to package directions.
Use fans and a humidifier. Even after sopping up most of the water, there is likely some lingering water in your floors and carpeting. Keep fans in the room and have them on for 24 hours a day.
This can speed up the drying process. You should also place a dehumidifier in the room if you have one.
Step 2: Cleaning Furniture and Household Supplies
Remove soaked items immediately. Any furniture that has been soaked in water should be immediately removed from a room.
Furniture is likely to get more wet sitting in a water damaged room. Move furniture to a dry area with good ventilation, such as the attic, until you're ready to clean it.
Brush mold and mildew off furniture. In the events of things like floods and leaks, mold, mildew, and debris can build up on furniture.
If you notice these issues, use a cleaning brush to surface clean your furniture. Brush off any obvious mold and mildew.
Soak up extra moisture using desiccants. Desiccants are materials that absorb moisture. They include things like clay, calcium oxide, and silica gel.
After brushing off any obvious mold and debris, sprinkle a desiccant over your furniture. These will help soak up water that's stuck in the fabric.
Hand clean appliances. Appliances also get wet and dirty from water damage. You can surface clean appliances with an all-purpose cleaner to rub away any debris built up on their surfaces.
However, do not attempt to clean electronics like televisions and stereos on your own. This can cause serious damage. Electronics should be cleaned by a professional.
Throw out mattresses. Unfortunately, mattresses cannot usually be salvaged after water damage. If a mattress gets wet, it's best to dispose of it at a local dump.
Step 3: Contact Professional for Assistance
Make a photographic record of the damage. You should always take pictures of damage after a flood or other natural disaster causes water damage.
Photograph each room thoroughly, as well as any appliances that were damaged. This will be important to show to the insurance company when making a claim.
Talk to your insurance company. Call your insurance company after water damage occurs. Explain the extent of the damage to them, and show them evidence like photographs you took.
Most homeowners insurance policies should pay for at least some of the costs of cleaning and repair.
Consult professionals to clean valuables. Things like books, photographs, and paintings usually require professional cleaning.
Rare or valuable objects especially should only be treated by professionals to prevent damage. Contact professional cleaners in your area that specialize in water damage to clean such objects.
Have upholstered furniture professionally cleaned. Upholstered furniture is difficult to clean on your own in the event of water damage. Hire professional furniture cleaners to deal with upholstered furniture that has been soaked in water.
