If your home or business recently flooded, you have several frustrating issues to deal with. What caused the flood? How much water damage do you have? What should you do first?

There are a few things you should consider after water damage or flood in your residence or business:
- The Category of Water: not all water is the same. Some water can be hazardous and can cause serious health issues. Dealing with contaminated water should be handled by a professional flood remediation company.
- Disinfection: your belongings, furniture, kitchen items - just about anything that was impacted by the water should be disinfected.
- Dry out: Furniture and household items need to be taken out of the building and dried. Upolstered furniture will soak up water and should be professionally cleaned. Walls and ceilings are usually compromised with water damage and need to be evaluated and completely dried out, too.
- Electrical/heating/cooling systems: These systems should be shut off until the situation is properly evaluated and then inspected for any damage.
Experts recommend that any damage over 10 square feet be handled by a licensed, certified water damage restoration contractor.
