• Staying Safe After The Flood Hits
3 May

No one is ready for a flood to hit, and when it does, you’ll need to have a plan for the aftermath. Even after a flood, the danger isn’t over. Follow these simple steps to remain safe after a flood.

Do NOT Enter A Flooded Basement

There is a risk of electrocution if flood water has not diminished as well as being at risk of disease of waterborne pathogens, leave this to the professionals.

Contact Your Insurance Agent

Even if you aren’t going to file a claim, it is helpful to contact your insurance agent to let them know it happened and they can often point you in the right direction to a company that can help get rid of the water.  The first and most important step to mitigate the effects of a flood is to remove the water as soon as possible.  

Call A Professional

Avoid additional risks and take the proper steps to get the water out by seeking help from a professional. Be sure to turn off all additional water sources.  Professional restoration companies will have the equipment on hand and be able to respond quickly and effectively to your needs and make sure the clean up is done right.

Check For Damage

Check your home for structural damage such as loosened or cracked foundation (check if the walls are vertical and straight) and take many precautions when inspecting your home. You may have sagging ceilings, warped walls, and areas that are still flooded. 

Turn Off The Electricity & Gas

One item that often goes overlooked is the need to turn off your utilities.  It is always best to turn off your electricity at the main breaker or fuse box. Be sure to stand in a dry spot to do this, if this is not possible, call an electrician. If you smell something unusual, leave immediately. Call your gas company to shut off service until the flooding has significantly decreased.

We realize that having to deal with a flood is the last thing you want to ever have to think about.  However, if it happens, hopefully, these steps will help you get life back in order as quickly and smoothly as possible.
