Switch off the electricity. Before you do any type of work, shut down the power to the areas you are going to be dealing with.

Sort Through The Damage.

  • Furniture. Whatever furniture that has been saturated ought to be thrown away.

  • Carpet and rugs. Dispose of it if your carpet has been saturated. The most efficient technique to dispose of it is to cut it into manageable portions with a box cutter or blade. Roll up the areas, leaving the padding, and then cut the pad into strips and trash them also. Carpeting is held down by wooden tack strips thin strips of wood lined with dozens of upside-down nails. These may be extracted with a chisel and a hammer.

  • Cabinetry. If water has gone below your cupboards, you may possibly want to remove these as well. If just a modest quantity of water went underneath them, you could be able to rescue them. You can drill or cut holes in the toe kick-- the bottom-most area of the cabinet that sits on the flooring. The toe kick is slightly recessed from the rest of the cabinet, so drilling into it will most likely let air to circulate under the cabinet and dry it out. These holes are relatively easy to patch when you embark on the reconstruction .

  • Floor surfaces. Just because your tile or wood floors seem and feel completely dry to the touch does not indicate they are definitely absolutely dry.

  • Collapse things before you toss these out, and see to it that that they lie flat on top of one another.
  • Be careful when loading materials!
  • When water has gone underneath your cabinets, you may possibly need to remove these also. There are machines that can draw the water through the floors without removing them. If water is still found once you attempt this, you will need to take off the hardwood flooring.
