Know the different types of water
Believe it or not, there are three types of water. The first type is “clean” water from rain, condensation, leaky pipes, and so on. The second type is gray water, slightly dirty water from dishwashers, washing machines, clean toilets, and so on. And it may have some contaminants. The third type is black water, such as sewage or serious flooding from nearby rivers, etc. This water contains waste, bacteria and other serious contaminants, you shouldn’t try to clean it up yourself.
Once you've shut down the water source and electricity, you mat be staring at puddles and wondering "what now?" Now it's time to assess and do water damage repair- and do it quickly! Wet materials start developing very serious problems like mold after around 24 hours. You don't have time to wait.
