If your house has been affected by floodwaters, you’ll want to proceed carefully and quickly. If you had to leave your home because of the flood, be sure to prioritize safety by checking the home for any visible structural damage before entering and call utility companies if you see or suspect damage to sewer, gas, water, or electric lines. It is also a good idea to shut off the water and electricity (at the electrical panel) and rely on flashlights when inspecting the building.
You should also be sure to take pictures for insurance purposes before you do anything to your home and contact your insurance company as soon as possible. Also check to see if your home is in a federal or state-designated disaster area. If it is, you may be eligible for additional resources and financial assistance.
Once you’ve taken these steps, the next priority is to get the water out of your home and assess the damage and repairs needed. It’s best to get in touch with a qualified restoration firm with the experience and knowledge of how to proceed.
