- If you find that water has entered your Western MA property, before you enter the flooded area, think SAFETY first. Check for electrical hazards and structural damage. Wear protective gear like boots and gloves.
- Try to identify the source of water and shut if off as quickly as possible. Stop up any leaks, shut off any running faucets, use sandbags towels as a barrier against flowing water on the floor.

Our team brings powerful air movers and dehumidifiers to help dry out your home, including water damaged materials such as carpets. Air movers help dry your home by expelling the moist, humid air from the room and bringing in warm, dry air to create a drier atmosphere and increase evaporation. This type of refrigerated low grain dehumidifier can extract up to 30 gallons of moisture per day from the ambient air within your home.
