Welcome to the best carpet cleaning service in Rogers Arkansas. We're not the run of the mill ( could-care-less, rude, late-arriving, ikky-looking, money-centered) cleaning company.
Okay so Water is coming in your home. What do you do? How can you handle this situation and prevent it from getting worse? Before we discuss anything lets be clear if you are in fear for your life call 911 now and stop reading this page! Now if that's not you and you think you can handle this situation yourself lets overview a few things here.
First of all where is the water coming from? Is it leaking in the wall is water coming through the ceiling or from under the floor? Are there torrential rains outside? do you live near a river? Problem number one WHERE IS THE WATER COMING FROM?
Once you have found the source of the leak find the shut off valve either in your house or outside at your water main. There is no time to waste with every second that passes your house is getting damaged.
Now the leak is stopped, ask yourself, "are there any electrical outlets, lights or wires where the leak was coming from?" "Is there a pool of water anywhere in the house?" If there are any electrical outlets, wires, switches etc. in the area of the leak or pool of water DO NOT use those systems. You need to go to your breaker box and shut off the power to the areas affected by the leak and make sure no children or others use the area affected by the water damage.
Rain Damage or River Rising
Do you live near a river? Is the water coming inside your house from the river? GET OUT even if it is no longer raining you run a HIGH risk of being hurt or killed by the rising river.
How can the river rise when there is no rain? After the rain ceases there is still risk of the river continually rising due to "run off." Run off is a term used to describe the waters tendency to flow downhill. The river is located at the bottom of all the hills etc. in your area. As the waters continue to flow down the hills, off the roads, into gutters etc. much of the waters end up flowing into the river. Therefore there still poses much risk to your life and the life of everyone else who lives next to a rising river.
IF THERE IS FLOOD DAMAGE IN YOUR HOUSE DUE TO A RISING RIVER GET OUT!!! HEAD TO HIGHER GROUNDS.
The seriousness of a rising river has much less to do with the damage of your floors or walls and everything to do with your own safety and the safety of everyone living next to that river. If the river is rising get out and warn everyone in your area to do the same. The situation is even WORSE if it is still raining outside and you have water damage in your home. That means the cycle of run off hasn't even begun to stop you are in the middle of a VERY serious situation. Stop worrying about your home and flee for your own safety.
If you don't live near a river.
If you do not live near a river or other water path and water is creeping inside your home from rain or something else you need to stop the water. One very effective way would be using sand bags to block the water from continuing to enter your home. Sand bags are not something people normally keep around their home. How about a tarp? One preferably with no holes. Wrap the tarp in old towels or clothes and heavy objects (like rocks, wood, stones or bricks) to keep the tarp weighted and prevent it (the tarp) from floating in the water. An additional option would be to re-direct the water away from your place. This could be done by either digging a small shallow "ditch" or path for the water to follow away from your residence, or using other objects to direct the water away from your place.
