How to Prepare for Water Damage Restoration in Cozad, NE, before ServiceMaster Arrives

When water damage occurs in your Cozad, NE, home, it's important to follow the right steps before our water damage restoration professionals arrive. It can be dangerous to enter a space that has been flooded. As the homeowner, you must learn the proper steps needed to prepare for restoration services. Below are a few tips to get you started.


 Stay Safe

To begin, you must stay safe. If you arrive home to find that your home is flooded, be wary of electricity. If you can turn off the main breaker without stepping in the flood waters, then do so. If not, be sure to wait for help to arrive. We want you to stay safe.


 Cleaning Up

If the water damage is not deep, try to remove the water using mopping or blotting techniques. If you find that water has seeped into flooring such as carpeting, avoid trying to remove it. That's a job best left for the experts. You can, however, remove any draperies or area rugs that have been affected by water. If you have any furnishings that have gotten wet, remove the cushions and place aluminum foil under the legs of the furniture to prevent the stain of the wood from bleeding onto the flooring.

With our water damage cleanup services, we work to restore your damaged personal belongings. If you have photos or art work in the damaged area, remove what can be saved. Any books should be removed and packed tightly so that they don't warp due to any dampness or water. Our Cozad, NE, technicians can assist by drying and restoring your items such as photos or books. 

If you find that your home seems to be affected by mold growth, do not attempt to clean. Any cleaners you may use can affect our techniques, and mold is a hazardous material that can be dangerous to your health.
