What do I do if my basement floods?
Do not panic if your basement floods. Following these basic steps when dealing with flooding will help you avoid major issues down the road!
The first thing you want to do is turn off the water supply (we can guide you over the phone while our crew is on the way) so that no more water enters the area. Immediately afterwards, put on rubber gloves, goggles, and a dust mask (N95 rated) if you are dealing with flood water that is possibly contaminated.
With the water line supply shut off, begin removing items from the flooded area to a higher area within your home or, even better, outside the room entirely (our crew will help with this upon arrival). Getting your possessions out will make it easier to clean and dry the affected area and possibly save some contents from getting ruined.
We will make sure to inspect your walls and appliances for moisture breaches. In both cases, we recommend hiring Ecotech Restoration Inc, a professional to inspect this because water damage within the walls can quickly and easily lead to mold. In addition, water damaged appliances can cause electrical fires.
