Step 1: Clean the Room

The first step is to clean the room as best as possible. Brooms, garbage bags and a shop-vac aid the initial cleanup. Remove any furniture and fixtures from the room.

Step 2: Assess Any Damage

Inspecting the condition of this dining room, it's obvious that water damage has occurred (Image 1). Paint is chipping on the ceiling, but it can be scraped off (Image 2).
