SERVPRO of Tracy Tips...

When water affects a property, it can be either clean or polluted, depending on the source. In order to protect your health and safety, it is important to know the source of the damage at the start of the cleaning process.

Some leaks will be obvious, such as floods in the basement, malfunctions in appliances, and clogged plumbing, while others may go unnoticed, such as those occurring behind walls and below.

In any situation that you find water damage on your property, follow some of these helpful tips,  and  call SERVPRO of Tracy to start the restoration process earlier. We also suggest you call your insurance company.

  • Try to contain the water in the affected area
  • Remove as much standing water as possible through mopping or drying with a towel.
  • Wipe down all the furniture.

  • Place a piece of foil between wet flooring and furniture legs.

  • Protect any furniture or pillows.

  • Lift the drapes off the floor, looping them through a coat  hanger and hanging them on the curtain rod.

  • Remove all area carpets.

  • Turn off any electrical items.
