Home with standing water Most types of water damage is best handled by trained professionals with specialized equipment.

Whether it is a broken pipe or flooding from a storm, knowing what to do when you have water damage is critical. Your first question should always be whether or not it is safe to stay in your home. Electrical hazards may warrant leaving the home until the water is removed. You also want to ensure you are not doing anything that puts you at risk. Wet materials are heavier than you might expect, so attempting to lift them could cause injury.

When You Have Flooding

If you have water damage, your first goal will be to remove the water. This may be done by mopping, but when there is excessive standing water, other extraction methods are a better option. Any type of wet upholstery or fabric needs to be removed from the space. You also want to remove any wood furniture so it can be properly cleaned.

Next, tackle the floors. Pull up any wet carpeting, rugs, or damaged laminates. If you have hardwoods, tile, or other solid surfaces, you may not have to remove these as long as they remain in good condition. To find out what your best steps are, just work with a licensed professional like those at SERVPRO of South & West Spokane. They have the training and the equipment to make your water damage “Like it never even happened.”
