When Water Damage Occurs
SERVPRO of Iowa City / Coralville believes safety is your first priority.
1. Never touch or use any electrical appliances or equipment if you are standing on wet carpet or floors.
2. If possible stop the water flow to prevent further damage know where shut off valves are located.
3. Do not throw anything away and take lots of photos and move wet items to a dry area as soon as you can.
4. Try to clean up as much standing water as possible and set up or turn on fans. This can also help circulate air to help with the drying process.
SERVPRO knows that the first 24/48 hours are critical to the restoration process in order to prevent mold damage which can be much more costly to repair then just cleaning up the water and properly drying the structure as well as affected materials.
