Follow these recommendations to reduce water damage after a flood.
As soon as it is safe to do so, disconnect all electronics/electrical equipment and move it to a dry location.
Address standing water
Remove as much standing water as possible from inside the building.
Save salvageable materials
Remove water-damaged materials immediately.
Dry out soaked areas
Ventilate with fans or use dehumidifiers to dry out the house.
Acting quickly can increase the chance of salvaging usable materials, reduce the amount of rust and mold that might develop, and limit the likelihood of structural problems.
