Where my fiance and I have just moved is a nightmare for water damage and we need some help from a restoration service. While we find one we will keep in mind the tips to not use our regular vacuum to remove water. We will find one soon and then be sure to get our home back on track.

Best of luck! It’s always good to have information before you have a professional come out to help!

My wife and I have been worried about the possibility of having to deal with some water damage in our home and we haven’t been sure about what to do in that case. I really liked that you had mentioned the importance of shutting off the water source and to place aluminum foil or wood block under furniture legs. We’ll have to stock up on some of these things, but if we do get hit with a flood, we’ll be making sure to hire a professional and try to stop the water source as quickly as possible.

I really appreciate the tip to put wooden blocks beneath furniture when there is water on the floors so that they don’t get damaged. I like how you said that turning off the source is the first step you should take. My husband and I want to help his parents who just had some of their things ruined in a flood. We are looking into flood restoration professionals to help them out.
