Tips on what to do before HELP arrives
In the event of a storm damage, SERVPRO of Decatur/Forsyth wants our customers to stay safe and sound. Here are some important emergency water damage tips that SERVPRO encourages our customers to review:
Shut off your water source or contact a qualified person to do it for you.
Turn off circuit breakers when access to the power distribution panel is safe from electrical shock.
Mop up as much of the excess area as you can.
Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
Move paintings, art objects, computers, documents, and other sensitive valuables to a dry place.
Don't enter affected areas if electrical outlets, switches, circuit breakers or electrical equipment are exposed to water. You want to avoid electrical shock hazards.
Don't use your household vacuum cleaner to remove water; this could cause electrical shock or damage to the vacuum cleaner.
Don't turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet; and do not enter rooms where ceilings are sagging from retained water.
