1 Carpet Categorize the type of water damage Clean Water, e.g. potable sources Steam Unsanitary Water, e.g. rain, ground water Contaminated Water, (Sewage) Remove & discard under controlled conditions Within 24 hours & no previous water damage Discard Summer (high humidity) Winter Follow procedure to clean & disinfect Discard (under controlled conditions) if unable to dry YES NO Decision Tree For: Adapted by Marilyn Herman, Extension Educator 2000 From research conducted by Neil Carlson, University of Minnesota

2 Ceiling Tile Categorize the type of water damage Clean Water, e.g. potable sources Steam Unsanitary Water, e.g. rain, ground water Contaminated Water, (Sewage) Remove & discard under controlled abatement conditions Within 24 hours & no previous water damage Air dry & reuse Remove & discard with minimum controls YESNO Decision Tree for: Adapted by Marilyn Herman, Extension Educator 2000 From research conducted by Neil Carlson, University of Minnesota

3 Electrical Within 24 hours & no previous water damage Turn power off If in doubt, throw it out Check by building inspector or electrician Discard electrical circuit breakers, GFI, fuses Decision Tree for: Adapted by Marilyn Herman, Extension Educator 2000 From research conducted by Neil Carlson, University of Minnesota

4 Paper/Files Categorize the type of water damage Clean Water, e.g. potable sources Steam Unsanitary Water, e.g. rain, ground water Contaminated Water, (Sewage) Place in freezer bags & freeze Essential YESNO Dry within hours Remove & dispose Cannot dry within hours, clean with water & freeze Contact American Conservation Decision Tree for: Adapted by Marilyn Herman, Extension Educator 2000 From research conducted by Neil Carlson, University of Minnesota

5 Furniture/Casework Categorize the type of water damage Clean Water, e.g. potable sources Steam Unsanitary Water, e.g. rain, ground water Contaminated Water, (Sewage) Remove & discard under controlled abatement conditions Upholstered, particle board, pressed wafer board, delaminated furniture/cabinets Air dry & monitor Hardwood/ intact laminates Within 24 hours & no previous water damage Remove & discard with minimum controls YES NO Clean appropriately and monitor Within 24 hours & no previous water damage NO Upholstered, particle board, pressed wafer board, delaminated furniture/cabinets YES Decision Tree for: Adapted by Marilyn Herman, Extension Educator 2000 From research conducted by Neil Carlson, University of Minnesota

6 Sheetrock Categorize the type of water damage Clean Water, e.g. potable sources Steam Unsanitary Water, e.g. rain, ground water Contaminated Water, (Sewage) Within 24 hours & no previous water damage NO YES Dry through dehumidification/ ventilation -- salvage and monitor Within 24 hours & no previous water damage Conduct testing to determine if microbial contamination has set in Simultaneously dry sheetrock through dehumidification and ventilation Remove & discard under controlled abatement conditions Remove & discard with minimum controls Contaminated? (swab/test tape) YES NO Decision Tree for: Adapted by Marilyn Herman, Extension Educator 2000 From research conducted by Neil Carlson, University of Minnesota
