It’s hard to know exactly what to do in a disaster, so when your house floods, you may not know exactly how to proceed to protect your home and your safety. Flood damage can cause serious damage quickly, so it’s important to know exactly what to do during this type of disaster. First and foremost, take these three steps during a flood:
1. Stop the water from flowing into your home, if possible. In many cases, this involves shutting off the water to your home.
2. If you can do so without stepping in any water, turn off your home’s electricity.
3. Do not try to remove the water or dry out your belongings. Evacuate your home and call us for help.
