Water Damage Tips


  • First, call AmeriClean, Inc. for immediate response
  • Ventilate wet areas. Turn on air conditioning for accelerated drying in summer; in winter alternate cycles of opened windows and heating.
  • Remove standing water from flat surfaces by sponging and blotting.
  • Take up saturated rugs and carpets when hardwood floors are at risk.
  • Stay out of rooms where ceilings are sagging from retained water.
  • Transport computers to a dry environment, remove cases and blow dry with low pressure air.
  • Remove lamps, telephones and decorative items from wet furniture tops.
  • Open drawers and cabinet doors for interior drying, but do not force open stuck drawers or doors.

  • Place aluminum foil squares, china saucers or wood blocks under furniture legs to avoid carpet staining.
  • Use heat to dry closed building interiors; mildew and expanded moisture damage may result.
