Water Damage Restoration
The place is reminiscent of Niagara Falls, and you’re forced to begin the water damage restoration process. Now you are faced with the difficult task of assessing the value and importance of every item affected by water damage. It can be difficult emotionally to decide which belongings you want to save after the damage has been done to most, if not all of your belongings. You may be able to see that storing water-damaged items that are not repairable or that have no further use is not practical. However, the personal value of family heirlooms can be priceless. You should still be practical during the water damage restoration process to ensure that you can quickly and effectively restore your life to pre-water damage conditions.
Perishables and Foods
Foods and perishables that have been damaged by water should be thrown out. Broken or stained tableware, including glasses and cups, should be thrown away as they are not safe to use.
Avoid these Items
When dealing with water damage, do not use any electrical appliances. You should not operate your electrical appliances if you are standing on wet floors or carpets.
Do not clean anything
Don’t try to dry your home or building using a blower, or other heat-inducing items. This DIY method, which is not intended to eliminate or remove the excess moisture or standing water that has been caused by water damage, can cause mold growth and spread further into your building. It can also lead to more water damage and more expensive restoration.
