Helpful Ways to Save Your Home

Here are a few tips to follow to help with flood clean up and to preserve the quality of your home and possessions.

  • Contact your insurance company right away. This may come as a given, but just to reiterate, it is important you figure out your insurance coverage right away. They can send an adjuster to help you. Videotape and take pictures as you clean so you have documentation to show your insurance company and as you apply for aid if needed.
  • According to floodsafety.com, take furniture, bedding, and clothes outside to dry as soon as possible. Have your upholstered furniture cleaned by a professional. This is due to the contaminants from floodwaters that can be in your furniture.
  • Hire someone to help you with professional water restoration in order to prevent major mold problems. Clean USA has a truck mounted, high pressure water extraction system.
