1. Identify the Water Damage Source
If you can safely do so, find the source of the water and shut it off. Turn off water lines or find ways to block off access points water is coming in from outside. Knowing where the water came from can help determine the right sort of treatment. Contaminated water from toilets, septic tanks, or other ground water needs to be handled carefully to avoid spreading bacteria and disease.
2. Watch Out For and Remove Electrical Risks
Water and electricity don’t mix. Please be very cautious when entering standing water. If you cannot safely enter wet areas, then don’t. Where you can though, remove all lines, cords, and all electronics. Be especially careful handling devices that are battery powered, as wet hands could cause you to get shocked.
3. Remove Small Furniture in Affected Areas
Any furniture that you can safely remove should be removed and taken someplace to dry. If the water was potentially contaminated, be sure to thoroughly clean and disinfect everything as it is removed. Water damage from water that is trapped under furniture during the drying process might not fully dry, creating issues with mold, mildew, and foul odors down the road.
4. Remove small items:

Chemicals that aren’t tightly sealed could be carried through the water, creating a dangerous situation. Items with dyes or oils that can spread could stain carpets, walls and other objects.
Be sure to:
• Wear gloves to protect yourself from spilled chemicals or
• Wear a face mask to keep you from breathing in toxins or
• Ware other protective gear like close toed shoes to protect
