While the majority of your water extraction is going to be done with our specialized tools and equipment, you can start trying to soak up some of the mess while you wait. Use towels or a mop to try and absorb as much of the water as you can safely. Again, if you aren't sure if you should enter an area due to electrical or other safety concerns, leave it until our experts
get there and can decide. If you have furniture, appliances, rugs, or other belongings that haven't yet been affected by the water damage, get them out of the way. You can prop up your furniture or move everything as far away from the water soaked area as possible. Only do this if you can do so without injuring yourself trying to move something that is heavier than what you can handle.
