SERVPRO of San Mateo- Water Tips
When water damage occurs SERVPRO of San Mateo is aware of the stress it can cause. After you have contacted our offices, we understand you might want to know what you can do in the meantime or what are the next steps. The first thing we strongly recommend is making sure all the water is closed to prevent water to continue from leaking.
Always remember your safety always comes first. If you are still moving around your home depending on the type of water damage you will need to be alert of slippery floors and weakening ceilings. When it comes to the electrical parts of the property it will depend on where exactly the water damage started if directly near lights, we urge you to leave them off.
If you clean up water, try pushing it out if there is a nearby door or using a mop/towels you can place them down on the water. Be super careful when picking up any materials we cannot stress these enough wet materials are heavier when wet. After any water damage situation, the primary focus is your safety!
