Water Damage

When water damage occurs it is important not to panic.

First, you need to stop the water source (if you can.)

Second, you need to call a water damage expert like Carpet Masters. We are there to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

So what should you do (or not do)?


  • Avoid electrical hazards.
  • Avoid slip and fall hazards.
  • Remove any artwork and paintings from the walls.
  • Remove any area rugs from the floor and hang to dry.
  • Stay out of rooms where the ceiling is sagging from retained water.
  • Remove wet upholstery cushions from the frame and prop them up to dry.
  • Place plastic or aluminum foil under any furniture legs that are not plastic.
  • Remove as much excess water as possible by mopping the area or using a wet/dry vac.
  • Turn the air conditioning on for maximum drying in the summer and open the windows in the winter.
  • Wipe as much excess water from wood furniture as you can and remove tabletop lamps and other items from the furniture.
  • Punch tiny holes in a sagging ceiling to relieve trapped water, place something underneath the holes beforehand to collect any trapped water.


  • Don't panic!
  • Don't leave wet fabrics in place.
  • Don't use a regular vacuum to remove excess water.
  • Don't turn on ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet.
  • Don't leave magazines, books or other colored items on wet carpets or floors.
  • Don't turn on electrical appliances while standing on wet carpets, floors or especially on wet concrete floors.
