When dealing with water damage, it is important to first make sure that all power is shut off to the house. You can do this by disengaging the main power breaker switch that supplies all power to the property from the main breaker panel. We recommend doing this because stormwater may have soaked into your walls and reached the electrical wiring. The water could have also reached the main electrical components that supply the main source of power to your property. Also, you may need to shut off the water supply to your house if you have noticed any broken pipes and avoid using the sewage system if it appears plugged.

Finally, for the last tip in this step, be sure to follow what your insurance policy states for the procedure to take to ensure that you consult with the proper professionals for any required inspections.
