                                                                                        Water Damage?

 Four Immediate Steps you must take

#1 Avoid the hazards- Be extremely careful of the deadly combination of water and electricity. Also be careful of slippery wet carpets and floors. Stay away from raw sewage backups, which can contain nasty bacteria and be harmful if not fatal.  

#2 STOP THE SOURCE- If you have not located the source call your plumber immediately, or call us and we can guide you through this. (it is crucial to know what to do.)

#3 REMOVE FURNITURE- Wood furniture will cause stains which cannot be removed. Rust stains from metal are difficult to remove and may be permanent. 95% of water damage jobs are restorable and most of the 5% which aren't restored are caused by not doing this. So move furniture that's even near water or place something under the legs.

#4 TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION- By calling Shambaughs Cleaning & Restoration Extraction Team 24 hours a day 7 days a week. You will always be answered by friendly staff. Our dispatchers will have a water damage expert come out immediately. Call us now! After you call we are on are way to do a FREE Evaluation.
