Have Water Damage? Here's What to Do.
Oh no! You notice a leaking pipe or a plumbing issue in your home or business. Don’t fret, SERVPRO® of SW Bakersfield is here for you. Before we arrive, however, here are some tips to safely take care of water damage. Keep in mind, these tips apply to clean water only. Sewage water causes different kinds of damage, and it is contaminated, so SERVPRO® treats that damage differently. SERVPRO® of SW Bakersfield is the perfect call to begin the water removal process, as our professional team will quickly and properly dry out your home or business from any water damage.
- When you notice damage occurring, immediately shut off the water source and turn off the power.
- If safe, remove as much water as possible with a mop and towels to soak up water.
- Place aluminum foil between wood furniture legs and carpet. Do not keep rugs and furniture upholstery wet against each other, as more damage will occur.
Safety is number one priority, so these steps are only recommended if they are safe to do so. Do not enter a room with standing water, as there could be a risk of an electrical shock. Ensure all power is disconnected as soon as flooding occurs. Do not use an ordinary household vacuum to try and remove water. SERVPRO® of SW Bakersfield knows the safe and best way to remove excess water and minimize the chance of mold growth. Call us at (661) 326-8422 to assist you today, we are 24/7/365.
