SERVPRO of Greenville/Troy/Andalusia Can Guide You Through a Water Damage
Having children can mean many messes in your home, including ones that leave you needing water cleanup services. However, sometimes the messes are not the kind that needs urgent help. Sometimes, you can afford to clean them yourself, so long as you have a little guidance that can help you prevent further damages from occurring.
Imagine a situation where you discover an overflowed bathtub and consider calling for local Greenville/Troy/Andalusia water cleanup services. However, let's say the finances are a little tight this month, and you can't really afford the service. That is okay because you can still get the help you need and clean up the water yourself.
Here at SERVPRO, we're dedicated to helping you. Even if you can't afford to call us, we can still offer you help in the way of guiding you through a DIY cleanup. In a situation with a spill that you can address immediately, it shouldn't be an issue for you to clean up the water yourself, so long as you have a few tools. However, if the water has been sitting for a significant period of time, you must reach out for professional help, as water damage could have already set in.
The first step to cleaning up the spilled water is to get out your mops and some towels, anything absorbent that can pick up the excess water from your floor. Our SERVPRO techs would use wet/dry vacuums to clean up standing liquid. However, because it is not a practical device for the average person to own, we recommend using what you have.
Once you are sure all of the water is cleaned up, you may think the job is done. However, it is wise to try and ensure that no excess moisture can linger behind. If you have a space heater and a dehumidifier, put them both inside of your bathroom overnight and let them run. They can help ensure that any excess moisture evaporates and can prevent further damages from occurring. If in the next week or so, you notice any signs of water damage, you should reach out to SERVPRO immediately.
If your home needs professional water damage remediation services, get help immediately. Get in contact with SERVPRO of Greenville/Troy/Andalusia by dialing (334) 371-7378. Day or night, we're here for you.
