Until we arrive, here are a few helpful steps you can take to minimize exposure and expedite the restoration process.
Isolate the area of the event and keep away of the affected area.
Remove and isolate any contaminated garments, including shoes, after leaving the area. Place them in a plastic bag or sealed container and leave them near the event area.
Do not move anything outside of the event area.
Avoid any contact with contaminated materials.
If there was a liquid spill, and you can reach it without endangering yourself, cover it with absorbent paper towels.
If you have come into contact with contaminated liquids, wash the affected areas immediately.
The final step in many cleanup situations is disposal, when all evidence of the event is removed and disposed of properly. You may not require any further services beyond this. However, in some instances, restoration work is needed to bring the affected area back to its pre-event condition. Restoration services following cleanup may include:
Repairing or replacing drywall, subfloor and other structural components
Repainting damaged walls
Restoring cabinets and countertops
Checking plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems for full functionality
