Do’s & Don’ts For Restoring Your Home After Water Damage


  • Do remove as much water as possible by mopping or blotting with large bath towels (Be sure not to leave colored towels on the carpet as colors can bleed)
  • Do wipe furniture down to remove excess moisture.
  • Do prop up wet furniture cushions for even drying.
  • Do lift drapes off the floor, loop through coat hanger and hang from curtain rod.
  • Do remove wet area rugs, furnishings and anything else on the flooring in the affected area.
  • Do move valuable pictures, paintings and art objects to a safe dry place.
  • Do open closet doors and dresser drawers and anything else that can be opened to allow air to circulate.
  • Do stay out of rooms where the ceiling is sagging.


  • Don’t use your household vacuum to remove water.
  • Don’t use electrical appliances while standing in wet area.
