“It’s important to be prepared for a water damage emergency. You never know when you will need to be prepared to deal with a water related problem,” claims David Beavers, owner of the Water Damage Team. “Time is of the essence when facing a water emergency. To begin the new year I encourage everyone to review these simple do’s and don’ts so you can be prepared if you find yourself with a water damage emergency.”

Don’t – Leave books or other paper materials such as newspapers or cardboard boxes on water damaged areas.

Do – Identify the source of the incoming water and stop it. If you can’t stop it on your own call a water extraction and removal professional as soon as possible.

Don’t – Leave any electronic items such as televisions or computers in water-damaged areas; move them to a dryer location as soon as water damage occurs.
