What should I do in case of a flood?

Posted by AlorAir Alex on

Unforeseen circumstances, many times the house you live in may forgot to turn off the faucet due to personal negligence, or the natural aging of the water pipe causes a burst, or heavy rain brings indoor "flooding" caused by hurricanes. Your peaceful life has brought great troubles. , Is a kind of "fatal" injury to wood products and carpets. If the water loss is small, you can deal with it yourself. But if you really go out in the morning "happy to work", when you go home and open the door in the evening.
What should I do if I find that everything at home is soaked in water?
If you encounter this situation, you should:

Do not enter a wet area impulsively, as it may be charged.
Find a dry place and use the main switch at home.
Go inside, look for leaks, and close them immediately; if you can’t find them, go outside and close the main sluice that leads to the house.
Try to remove all items that are afraid of water, such as electrical appliances, books, clothes, furniture, etc.
Call the insurance company (if you have property insurance).
If your house has accident insurance for house + property, the subsequent processing will be much simpler. There are not a few "flooded" houses every year, and various insurance companies have very mature claims settlement methods to assist users. When you see your beloved furniture, bedding, clothing, toys, and electrical appliances in the water, you may be at a loss; generally speaking, the insurance company will directly send a 24-hour professional "flood" rescuer to check the situation, although They are "drainage experts", because this kind of thing is very common, they will guide you how to minimize flood damage, and how to organize the room to make room for drainage work.

Of course, in this case, you can hire a professional team, and the professional team will spend a few days dehumidifying, drying and disinfecting your room. Of course, if you do not have insurance, the bill for losses caused by this flood may be five figures.
The best and cheap way is to buy a dehumidifier, preferably a commercial dehumidifier, because the dehumidification efficiency is very high, and after a good strategy, I think you can easily operate the dehumidifier to dehumidify.
