In the event of a storm that leaves your home with water damage, the most important thing is your health and safety. Before help arrives, avoid hazardous areas such as slippery places and electrical wires.
There are do’s and don'ts to handling a flood or flood damage. After a flood, remove excess water by mopping and blotting. If you are able, wipe excess water from countertops. Turn on all air conditioning for drying in the summer, remove colored rugs from wet carpeting, and gather loose items from the floor.
Don’ts include leaving wet fabrics in place. Instead, hang them up. Don’t leave books or magazines laying around and please do not use your vacuum to remove water; it will not work! Do not use any household appliances including ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet to avoid electrical damage and health risks.
