Types of Water Damage Cleanup

If your home has been impacted by a water source such as flooding, a sewage backup, or a sump pump backup, the water is considered contaminated and additional steps will be necessary during cleanup to restore your property to a safe and healthy environment. Whenever there is the possibility that water may be contaminated with bacteria, viruses, sewage, or other contaminants you should proceed with extreme caution and avoid any contact with the water.

Clean water sources, such as a broken pipe, leaking water supply line, or an overflowing sink or bathtub typically do not require any extra steps to disinfect and decontaminate your property. However, if clean water is left to stand for several days, mold can become an issue. No matter what type of water is affecting your property, don’t delay! Call us immediately to take care of the water damage and return your home back to normal.

Water Damage Tips

Water damage and bacteria growth can begin within hours after you experience a loss. To increase your chances of a complete recovery, call ServiceMaster Action Clean as soon as possible. In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to ensure a more successful restoration.

What to do:

  • Water damage and bacteria growth can begin within hours. Call ServiceMaster of Hattiesburg immediately.
  • Remove as much water as possible by mopping and blotting.
  • Remove wet area rugs or other removable floor coverings. Do not attempt to start removing wall-to-wall carpet.
  • Lift draperies off the floor, loop through a coat hanger and place the hanger on the drapery rod.
  • Wipe furniture, prop up wet furniture cushions for even drying and place aluminum foil under furniture legs.
  • Move photos, painting and art objects to a safe, dry location.
  • Do not remove books from shelves. Rather, pack them tightly to prevent warping of pages until a restoration professional can begin this specialized drying.
  • Open drawers, closet and cabinet doors to enhance drying.

What not to do:

  • Do not enter a room with standing water until electricity has been turned off.
  • Do not use a regular household vacuum to remove water.
  • Do not lift tacked-down carpet without professional help.
  • Do not use electrical appliances while on wet carpet or flooring.
  • Do not disturb visible mold.
