Carpet Drying Checklist

In any event, as hurriedly as possible, do away with the source of the water assisting with the carpet drying process.

  • If it is safe to do so, turn off all the circuit breakers supplying electricity to wet areas. Remove any small electrical devices from these areas.
  • To further minimize any damages, avoid walking on the wet carpet any more than necessary.
  • Remove any smaller furnishings from carpet, and place aluminium foil under legs. This helps to prevent rust or furniture stains, which consequently, may become permanent.
  • Hang draperies and pin-up furniture skirts to avoid contact with wet floors, helping to prevent watermarks.
  • Remove breakables, moisture-sensitive and high-value items, books, shoes, paper goods, fabrics, potted plants, and any other issues that may stain floor coverings (additionally remember to check under beds and furniture).
  • Plan for the crew to move furniture into unaffected and dry areas.
  • Make sure to practice good personal hygiene after handling affected items.
  • To avoid the chance of electrical shock, do not use a home vacuum or shop vac to remove water.
  • If sewage-related, do not handle any contaminated items and do not turn on fans, heating, or air conditioning units as they may spread the contamination.

Time Is Important
