If you suffer water damage in your home, safety should always be the first priority.

Anytime there is an emergency in your home your primary focus should be safety.  Ask yourself, is it safe to stay in your house? 

If you have suffered water damage, there could be dangers from electrical appliances short-circuiting to something as simple as a slip and fall on a wet surface.

If you can remain in the home safely, there are a few things you can do until help arrives:

1.     Wipe excess water from wood furniture and remove lamps or any kind of content that may be sitting on top of it.

2.     Remove wet upholstery cushions from couches.

3.     Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between the legs of furniture and any wet surfaces.

4.     Remove colored rugs from wet carpet
