When you have flooding in your home or commercial property, the immediate concern is your personal safety and the safety of any others, family or employees. The major risk of having flooding or water damages is electrocution. Therefore, it's a good idea to turn off all electricity to the property if there’s a chance that the water damage might reach electrical wiring or plug sockets.
Avoid using lights and appliance unless you have wireless or battery powered fixtures. Vacuums and pumps are one of the most useful tools that we have available to us as a Charlotte water damage repair
company, but that’s because we use specialist tools that are designed exclusively to deal with water damage. If you were to use a regular household vacuum cleaner, this could create more extensive damage to the property so we advise against this.
