What To Do In The Event of A Water Emergency | SERVPRO of South Bronx
Water damage can have long-lasting, expensive effects when not treated properly. When a pipe bursts, a plumbing problem causes a leak or backup, or when flooding from a storm threatens your home, it’s essential to act quickly to reduce the amount of damage and keep costs down. Follow these steps if you have a water emergency in your home.
AFTER YOU FIND WATER IN YOUR HOME:
- Turn off the water supply in your home if the source is from a leak
- During a flood, turn off electricity to your home if you can safely reach the fuse box; otherwise, wait until a professional can do so for you. Do not enter a flooded basement if the electricity is still on!
- If possible, ventilate the area by opening windows and turning on fans.
- Vacate the property if needed.
