Flood Safety

For flood emergencies it is very important to prepare in advance and be knowledgeable in the dos and don’ts.  Keep your insurance policy at hand and wrapped. Because when the flood comes, you’ll want the paperwork in order.

Once you hear flood warnings turn off all electricity around your home; this will help prevent electrical issues later.   While the flood is in progress do not walk or drive through any water.

The depth of the water or any debris that may be lurking is unknown and could be potentially harmful. Obviously stay away from any power lines and beware of and gas or carbon monoxide leaks.

After the water has cleared watch your step when walking; broken glass and hurt animals are hazardous and anything touched by the water has most likely been contaminated.

Clean anything that the water may have touched, as floods carry toxic chemicals. When it comes to floods, you can never be too safe! – http://AllBoroCleaning.com 1-800-426-0899
