Immediate Action Checklist for Floods

  • Remove family and pets from the water damaged area. If the water is black, it can be especially dangerous.
  • If the water damage was caused by plumbing inside the house, shut off the main water line to the home.
  • Turn off electricity at the main breaker box.
  • Contact the professionals at Carpet Care Cleaners to begin the restoration process.
  • Contact your insurance agent and let them know you’ll be working with the professionals at Carpet Care Cleaners.
  • Capture photographs of the damaged area.

While we’ve talked about the things to-do during a water damage crisis, there are a few things you should never do during a flood.

  • Do not turn on overhead light fixtures if water damage has occurred in the ceiling.
  • Do not enter a room with standing water if the electricity is still active.
  • Do not leave books or paper products in the path of the water. Remove all these materials to a high, dry location.
  • Do not attempt to remove water with a home vacuum. Wait for the professionals.
  • Do not use any electrical appliance in the home, until the water has been removed.
