Waiting Just a few short hours can make a crucial difference in hundreds or thousands of dollars’ worth of damage. Below are a few steps to take if your office has experienced flood damage in Tampa.
Remove as Much Water as Possible
If the area is full of clean standing water, remove as much as possible. Soak up the existing water with spare towels and blankets, to avoid water spreading to unaffected areas. Then, use a wet/dry vac to absorb the remaining moisture. Keep in mind, if the water that flooded the area is contaminated, do not attempt to remove it. Leave it for the professionals.
Remove Anything of Value from the Affected Area
