When your home floods, quick action is key, and can make the difference relatively minor and extensive damage from excess water. Here are some useful flood restoration tips:
Locate the source of the water. If it is a burst pipe or another problem that is flooding your house with water, see if you can locate and temporarily turn off, gap, or plug the leak. You should also turn off the water to your home, particularly if you aren’t able to stop the flow of the water any other way.
Use towels, mops, and buckets if necessary to remove as much water as possible. Make sure to wear gloves and appropriate footwear when doing so. Turn on fans and humidifiers in rooms with flooded carpet as soon as possible.
Move all furniture and other items out of the flooded rooms as soon as possible. Clean, dry, and disinfect them as best you can.
