Flood Water, Disaster & Hurricane Clean Up

If you are displaced because of floods, hurricanes, or heavy rainfall, make sure to stay safe upon your return to your home. FEMA warns you to check for structural damage at your home, such as cracking or loose foundations. You should also contact utility companies to report any water, gas, or sewer damage.


Having a working flashlight is a good idea if power is off in your neighborhood. It is also important to shut off electrical power in your fuse box. Even if power is dead, you do not know when it will come back. Mixing water and electricity can lead to a devastating electric shock.


Before you begin any flood damage repair, you should carefully document the extent of the damage. Take pictures or videos of the flooded area and keep them in a safe place for insurance purposes. It is important that you remember this to be the first step before you start to remove water or begin the restoration. You may potentially decrease your insurance coverage.


A proper restoration can be a long and stressful process. Before commencing restoration, be sure to consider your health. If the water was caused by a natural disaster, the water may have dangerous chemicals or pollutants, making it risky to go in without protecting yourself. If the water was caused by a broken clean water pipe, you may not need to wear too much protection.


If you are sure that your health is risk-free, and you have completed the paperwork required by your insurance company, it is time to begin planning the flood clean up.
