Pick things up. When water intrudes, picking up smaller personal items and placing them out of harm’s way is important.
For objects you value, normally smaller items, and can get to without danger to yourself, start wiping them off and getting them dry. Although your Dragon Restoration water damage pro will handle the final cleaning and restoring of valuable objects, you can do much to speed up the process.
Some materials are sensitive, and need special attention. These can include wood furniture, fabrics, upholstery, rugs, art and other valuable items. If you can remove these from flooded areas and wipe them off and allow them to dry, you will assist the drying and restoration process. Especially pick up and hang in a safe place items such as valuable area rugs.
As a general rule, get things up off the floor. These would be especially larger, more valuable items, such as sofas, chairs, tables, etc. Most water damage situations are just a few inches deep, so putting these items up is usually possible and very helpful to preserve their value. But if not, don’t worry… your Dragon Restoration water damage pro (who you have already called and is no doubt now on the way) can handle it. We have special wood or foam blocks or other items to do the job to protect your furniture and larger items.
