Water can be hard to get out of carpet, but with the right equipment, often it can be saved and restored to like new condition. Depending on the extent of the damage, tearouts, de-construction and then reconstruction may be necessary.

Water Damage Portland OR Action Plan:
What to do when flooding occurs?
Call ARS immediately! We will assist you in the process of understanding the insurance claim process.
- Shut off the power in all affected areas. Although it looks harmless, water is a conduit of electricity and can facilitate shock and/or electrocution.
- Try and locate the problem & take any immediate corrective measures. Examples are turning off the water line to a faucet, washing machine, or dishwasher.
- Tread carefully – surfaces will most likely be extremely slippery.
- Remove as much excess water as possible – squeegee, toweling, mopping standing water; making small holes in the ceiling to drain trapped water above into buckets and/or containers.
- Document all damage by taking notes and photographs. Be as detailed as possible.
- Don’t dispose of any items! Wait until a restoration expert inspects, documents, and itemizes those belongings. Many times our professionals can restore seemingly entirely destroyed items – including books, art, clothes, furniture, electronics, documents, and more.
Note: If you have structures or materials that have soaked wet for more than 24 hours, don’t attempt to clean them. Often times it takes less than 48 hours for the deadly toxic mold Stachybotrys to begin growing in damaged areas.
