Memphis, TN -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/17/2015 -- Local water damage experts AAA Service Company, of Memphis, Tennessee recently provided homeowners in the Memphis area with a step-by-step guide of how to proceed if a home has been damaged by a flood, and what to do to avoid excess damage.
After flooding occurs, water damage happens very fast. In order to get ahead of the cleaning process, there are a few things that can be done to make the process go smoothly. Remove all valuables to a safe, dry place. Turn on the AC for maximum drying potential, and remove any excess water by mopping or blotting it up. Remove any colored rugs to prevent bleeding colors, and to protect furniture legs, put blocks underneath the legs to keep them away from water.
"Homeowners just don't realize the amount of damage even a single inch of water can do to structures of any size. Not only is the risk of structural damage increased, but the onset of mold happens very fast and that can be deadly to anyone unaware. This information is to keep consumers safe because the Memphis community gets hit hard during flood season. Knowledge is key when it comes to water damage restoration." – Steve Kennedy, Corporate Operations Officer
While stepping in to take action is often helpful, safety is top priority. If unsure of how long a home has had standing water in it, it's best not to enter the home at all due to potential health and safety risks. Avoid using any electronic appliances until the home has been professionally inspected and stay away from rooms with sagging ceilings.
