- Remove or extract as much water as possible from floors with mops, or wet/dry vacuums (shop vacs)
- Wipe or blot any water from wood furniture or wood floors.
- Roll up any area rugs and put them in a standing position next to a drain or outside, so that water will drain out of the rug and to avoid staining any carpet.
- Do not put anything that is wet that is on something that is dry. It’s very important that you do not put wet metal furniture on fabric furniture, because it can stain the fabric very quickly.
- Put Aluminum foil under the legs of furniture especially, if it is on carpet to avoid rust or bleeding stains on the carpet.
- Cranking the air conditioning in the summertime can greatly help with removing humidity from the air.
- Remove any valuables especially anything that is paper based, electronic, fabric, easily breakable and put them in a safe dry place..
- Pick up toys or anything that can easily be broken, or cause an accident, if someone were to step on it.
- Bag any clothing that may be wet and place the bag in the laundry area, so any salvageable clothing will be ready to wash and dry.

If a flooding happens in your Midlothian property, the water damage can ruin your personal belongings and even the structure of your property in as little as 24 hours with just an inch of water. People tend to think about mold is the biggest concern, when their property has water damage, but the reality is that most flood and sewage waters commonly contain biohazards like bacteria, viruses, parasites, pesticides, medication and other harmful chemicals in them. The worse part is that furniture, fabric, and your property’s building materials soak all this stuff up like a sponge causing huge water loss expense. There are many times, where people want to cut corners and not remove affected materials to save money, but the health risk and loss of the material’s structural integrity is usually much more costly in the long run.

Facts about Midlothian:
By the turn of the century, the Village of Midlothian was still primarily a farming and forested area, despite activities conducted by the Midlothian Country Club creating a short layover for passenger traffic to and from the Midlothian train station. This stalling of development was partially driven by the housing speculation crash after the 1893 World’s Columbian’s Fair, especially the property that would eventually become the Village of Robbins in 1917.
