Things you need to consider

Flooded basement

If you come home from a long day at work or a weekend away, and you find there are multiple inches of water in the basement, your first instinct is to shut off the water supply. Before you decide to wade through the water to shut it off, be mindful what the source may be, and the possibility of an electrical current running through it.

Things you need to consider before wading through the water:

  • Is the water contaminated?
  • Is there furniture or debris that could make you slip and fall?
  • Are there electrical shock hazards?
  • In the event of outside flooding, is there more than 6 inches of water? (If it is, the moving current can be fast enough to knock down a grown man.)

If you have any questions about your water damage, give SERVPRO of Casper a call. We can come out and do a FREE evaluation.
