Water Emergency Checklist

  • First, stop the source of the water!
  • If safe, turn off circuit breakers supplying electricity to wet areas and remove the small electrical devices from the areas.
  • If possible, avoid walking on wet carpet.
  • Remove small furnishings from carpet, or place aluminum foil under legs, to help prevent rust or furniture stains.
  • Hang drapes and pin up furniture skirts to avoid contact with the wet floors, to prevent water marks
  • Remove high-value items, books, shoes, paper goods, fabrics, potted plants, and any other items that may stain floor coverings.
  • Plan for restoration crews to move furniture into unaffected dry areas.
  • To avoid the chance of electrical shock, do not use a home vacuum or shop vac to remove water.
  • If sewage related, don’t handle any contaminated items and do not turn on fans, heating, or air conditioning units as they may spread the contamination.
