What To Do When Your House Floods

Terms: Tips

There are many causes of household flooding including:

  • Heavy rains
  • Sewer back-up
  • Malfunctioning sump-pump
  • Burst pipes
  • Storm Surges

You should always know what to do when your house floods.

Take care of problems early to reduce damage and speed up the repair process: 

  1. Always Think With Safety First: Do things like turn off the power, wear protective clothing. Never eat food contaminated by flood water.
  2. Stoping and Removing Water: Make sure your sump pump is fully operational. If plumbing is needed, get that done immediately to stop further damage.
  3. Dry Out Your Home: Use dehumidifiers, portable fans and air dryers are always helpful. It keeps moisture content down and helps the dry out to prevent mold buildup.
  4. Call Your Insurance Company: Let them know what is going on, check on your policy. An adjuster might come out quickly, and in the meantime, document everything.
  5. Clean Up: You can call in a professional clean-up crew. This may involve determining what is salvageable and throwing away anything that is too damaged or no longer safe to use.
  6. Repairs: Get your home back to its pre-loss condition
