What you do in the first hours after a flood can make a huge difference in your health and safety and how quickly you can address the flood damage.
One of the main dangers after a flood is electricity. We all know that water and electricity don’t mix! Never enter a flooded home without making sure that the electricity has been turned off by your utility company first. You’ll also want to avoid direct contact with flood water because of the potential for raw sewage and toxic chemicals. For more steps to take in first 24 hours after a flood, go to this link.
