What you can do until help arrives

Water Damage

After any water damage situation, your primary focus should be safety first:

  • Is it safe to stay in the house?
     
  • Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.
     
  • Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!

Fire Damage

  • Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpet.
  • Keep hands clean.  Soot on hands can further soil upholstery, walls and woodwork.
  • If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator completely and prop doors open to help prevent odor.
