What you should do if your house floods

3/1/2022 (Permalink)

A flood is one of the most damaging and devastating things you may ever endure as a homeowner. Household flooding can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

Heavy downpours
Back-up sewer system
The sump-pump isn't working.
Pipes burst
Whatever the cause, you should still know what to do if your house floods. Taking care of the problem as soon as possible will help decrease the amount of damage and make clean-up and repair easier.

First and foremost, safety.

The most important thing to do in any severe house tragedy is to stay safe. If the flooding is severe enough, you may be forced to abandon your home. When you come home to begin dealing with the consequences, make sure you are also protected. Turning off the power may be necessary, as water and electrical do not mix. When you return home, use protective clothing, such as rubber boots and gloves. Not only will you have to deal with the water, but also with whatever else the water has come into contact with, such as debris or even sewage. It is vital to safeguard oneself from any potentially toxic chemicals or materials that may have been washed in by the floodwaters.
