Things to Avoid

  • Don't leave wet fabrics in place. Dry them as soon as possible. Hang furs and leather goods separately at room temperatures. If fur or leather goods have serious smoke damage, consult an expert on the best way to clean and remove the damage.
  • Don't leave books, magazines, or other colored items on wet carpets or floors.
  • Don't use a household vacuum to pick up water, only use a shop vac or wet vacuum, 1 that is capable of removing water.
  • Don't operate any electrical equipment when you are standing on a wet surface.
