What You Should Do After Your Home Floods | Flood Damage Repair Atlanta

Water is the essence of life, but can be vicious and dangerous when left unchecked. Flooding can end in disastrous consequences, so it is important that you know what to do if your home floods. Mitigating your damages and staying safe is critical. Here are a few things that you may want to consider doing if your home floods:

PROTECT YOURSELF FIRST: Never try to save property at the risk of your own safety. Make sure your home is deemed safe by a qualified professional before you start any recovery or mitigation efforts.

CONTACT YOUR INSURANCE AGENT: Your damages need to be documented and verified by your insurance company as soon as possible. The costs can escalate quickly from flood damage so you want to be sure that your insurance company is covering your damages fully.

TURN OFF YOUR ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: To prevent further danger and fire risks you want power to the home turned completely off. Your electrical system needs to be repaired and inspected by a qualified electrician before it’s turned back on.

FIND A QUALIFIED RESTORATION PROFESSIONAL: Do not trust your flood damage repair and home restoration to someone inexperienced or unqualified.
