For anyone struggling with flooding, there are a few steps that need to be taken immediately to reduce damage and lower the risk of injury. First, home or business owners should turn off electricity in the affected area. It is also important to shut off the water main to stem the flow of water. Water quality should be assessed to determine if it is dirty or a health hazard and property that has been saturated or that may become saturated should be removed.
Finally, professionals such as Water, Mold and Fire should be contacted so that they can remove standing water, remove damaged materials to prevent mold, and thoroughly dry the area and air.
