 To find out more about repairing water damage, read the following directions carefully.

Difficulty:

Moderate

Instructions:

• Take away unimportant things such as books or magazines that could cause fungus and to avoid moldy odours. Duplicate any essential papers or items and remove them if they are thoroughly soaked.

• Use a water extraction vacuum to remove water from the floor covering. Steam-clean with the equipment’s recommended shampoo or conditioner. Extract the water again. You are able to lease these machines from cleaning services and hardware stores. Put the carpet outside for them to be dried in the sun.

• To draw out water from the air and stop lingering water from going into the walls, place a home dehumidifier in your residence.

• Do not open the windows, this could allow fungal spores into your home. To circulate air, place fans in the home.

• Remove and replace damaged ceiling tiles.

• To get rid of any small puddles of water, use a clean rag to wipe it down.

• Have the drapes professionally cleaned. Remove them from around the windows.

• Replace the insulation from the wall that has been wet and replace it with a new one. Insulation will never dry properly and then collect mold.

• Check the drywall that is wet for swelling or exposed seams in the structure. To prevent swelling and aid in ventilation, remove insulation from the wall cavity. If there are any signs of buckling, replace the drywall.

• Use humidifier and fans at any wet wood surfaces to lessen damage. A light detergent such as dish soap should be used to clean treated or finished wood. Take away wet wall paneling from walls and allow it to dry separately.
