Water Damage Emergency Tips
What you can do until help arrives
It is never a good idea to hang out in your home after a flood. It can be a dangerous place because of slip and fall accidents or electrical shock. If your plan is to dry it yourself, think again, because it could take longer than you expect and can inhibit mold growth. Here are some tips when a sudden flood or water damage occurs:
1. Evacuate your home and turn off your electricity.
