HOW TO DEAL WITH A SMALL WATER SPILL ISSUE?

SMALL WATER SPILL
May 28, 2019

Probably everyone was in a situation when it is necessary to deal with the spill of water. So we understand that different severity of the water spill requires different actions. All of these actions should be quick enough, but before doing something you need to clearly understand what exactly will be the most appropriate now. And some cases obviously require emergency professional help from plumbing company, but in case of a small water spill, you will be able to handle it by yourself. Here is a short list of things that you will need in such a situation:

  •  a few dry towels;
  • wet/dry vacuum cleaner and box fans (ask your neighbors to borrow them if it is possible);
  • dehumidifier (probably your neighbors are not owners of one of them, so to rent it in some local tool rental business will be a decision).

For example, aquarium was broken in a room and all the water from it spilled on the floor where the carpet lays. So you have significant water spill. Although it is limited and still not serious enough to call professional plumbers. To remove consequences of such breakdown, please see tips below:

  1. If the source of the water is not limited (unlikely to example with an aquarium) and the water flows from a pipe or overflowing sink, immediately shut the water off to stop the tide of new water.
  2. Use prepared before wet/dry vacuum cleaner to remove as much water as it is possible and soak up the rest of the water with towels.
  3. Using turn box fans and ceiling fans the air in the room can be dried, additionally you may use dehumidifiers.

If these tips don’t work for your particular case, it means that your spill is too serious to handle it by yourself and you need to call Excellent Plumbing to avoid long-term damage.
