Helpful Hints

Water damage can occur at any time and from a number of causes. Pipes break, water heaters wear out, plumbing backs up, or a natural disaster results in a flood.

When water damage occurs it is important not to panic. The first thing to do is stop the water source and the next thing to do is call a water damage expert like Dry Max. We are there to help you in your time of need, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Below is a list of things you can do to minimize the effect of water damage, as well as some suggestions on how not to make things worse..

What to Do

  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping the area or using a wet/dry vac.
  • Wipe as much excess water from wood furniture as you can and remove tabletop lamps and other items from the furniture.
  • Turn the air conditioning on for maximum drying in the summer and open the windows in the winter.
  • Remove any artwork and paintings from the walls.
  • Remove any area rugs from the floor and hang to dry.
  • Remove wet upholstery cushions from the frame and prop them up to dry.
  • Place plastic or aluminum foil under any furniture legs that are not plastic.
  • Punch tiny holes in a sagging ceiling to relieve trapped water, placing something underneath the holes beforehand to collect any trapped water.
  • Stay out of rooms where the ceiling is sagging from retained water.

What Not to Do

  • DON'T panic!
  • DON'T leave wet fabrics in place.
  • DON'T leave magazines, books, or other colored items on wet carpets or floors.
  • DON'T use a regular vacuum to remove excess water.
  • DON'T turn on electrical appliances while standing on wet carpets, wet floors, or especially on wet concrete floors.
  • DON'T turn on ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet.
