Water Damage

In the event of water damage, do the following:

Stay calm! Call Rainbow International of Chester County at 610-910-4077.

Make sure the water source is turned off. This will help contain the damage.

Turn off the breaker in the damaged area before you unplug or remove any electrical devices located on the wet carpet.

Place aluminum foil under the legs of any furniture which is in contact with wet carpet. This might help prevent furniture stains on your carpet.

Lift draperies away from wet carpet.

Pin up upholstered furniture skirts which may get wet.

Remove books, shoes, paper goods, fabrics, potted plants, and other items which may stain wet carpet.

Do not attempt the following:

Don't use your home vacuum, since electrical shock may result, as well as certain damage to the equipment itself.

Don't place newspaper in traffic areas to walk on, since newspaper ink transfers easily to the wet carpet fibers and may result in permanent staining.

Don't walk on carpet any more than necessary. This will keep the damage from spreading to unaffected areas.
