Helpful Tips from your Cleaning & Restoration Experts

What TO DO?

  • Remove as much water as possible by mopping and blotting the saturated area
  • Wipe down furniture to remove excess water
  • Place aluminum foil between legs of your furniture and the wet carpet
  • Prop up wet furniture cushions for even drying
  • Lift drapes off flooring, loop through a coat hanger and hang
  • Remove wet area rugs
  • Turn on the air conditioner, if the damage occurred in summer
  • Move valuable paintings, art objects and photos to a safe, dry place
  • Remove damp books from shelves and lay them out to dry
  • Open closet doors, furniture drawers and luggage to aid in drying
  • Remove any wet fabrics and lay them out to dry, or dry in them in your dryer if possible
  • Hang furs and leather goods to dry separately at room temperature


  • Use your household vacuum to remove the excess water
  • Use electrical appliances while standing on wet flooring or carpets
  • Go into any room with standing water if the electricity is on
  • Lift tacked down carpet without professional help as this could cause damage and shrinkage
  • Go into any room where the ceiling is sagging
  • Wait to call for professional help. The longer you wait the more damage will occur.
