Major flooding in your home after a storm? Here’s what to do.
If your home has been flooded after a major storm, knowing what to do and who to call after a flood occurs in your home is critical to minimizing water damage and costly repairs.
Timing is the most important factor. Water spreads quickly and is absorbed into the walls, floors and furniture in your home. Wood, upholstery and other surfaces can be permanently ruined if water removal efforts are not started as soon as possible.
If flooding happens in your home, call a professional water damage cleanup and emergency restoration company right away… before further damage occurs.

Emergency Tips for Flooding At Your Home.
Whenever water damage occurs in your home, here are some things you can do to help with the water restoration process.
- Remove as much water as possible by mopping
- Do not use a regular vacuum to try and remove water
- Remove wet area rugs or other floor coverings not permanently attached.
- Do not attempt to start removing wall-to-wall carpet
- Lift draperies off the floor, loop through a coat hanger and place the hanger on the drapery rod
- Wipe furniture, prop up wet cushions for even drying and place aluminum foil under furniture legs
- Move photos, paintings and art objects to a safe dry location
- Keep books on book shelves. Pack them tightly to prevent warping of pages until a restoration professional can begin specialized drying
- Open drawers, closets and cabinet doors to enhance drying
