My Floor is Covered in Water....HELP!!

3/1/2019 (Permalink)

Nobody ever anticipates water damage. We all think "that won't happen to me." But unfortunately it's actually pretty common. 

It may have started out as innocent bath time playfulness, an accidental spill or small leak. Suddenly, you are surrounded by water on the floor, moving towards walls, crevices, and other access points to reach the lowest level of their home.

You reach for the towels, wet vac, mops and fans to clean up the water and the phone to contact you. You clean up the surface water and believe everything will be okay and the problem is solved. Or, is it? What happened to the water that traveled into the floor, subfloors and walls? Was all the moisture caused by the incident removed? Water intrusion in a home can leave subtle, yet lasting effects if not completely removed from the structure. Removing standing water with appropriate precautions can prevent further damage. But, who removes water and moisture in the flooring and walls of your home?

We do. SERVPRO of Vincennes is here to help you. Let us take care of your problem.

SERVPRO's Emergency Plan can help minimize the amount of time your business is down and get you back to work. Are you ready for whatever happens?

Mold can be a scary thing, let us give you some tips for the new year!

What to Do:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Turn off the HVAC system and fans.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Vincennes for mold remediation services.

What Not to Do:

  • Don’t touch or disturb the mold.
  • Don’t blow air across any surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
  • Don’t attempt to dry the area yourself.
  • Don’t spray bleach or other disinfectants on the mold.
