If a pipe, washer hose, water heater, or other pressurized water source breaks, it will flood hundreds of gallons of water into your home and basement โ€“ per hour! Be very careful to stay out of the water and dry as you do this. The water can be electrified, or contain viruses and bacteria.

We cannot emphasize enough โ€“ it's important to take care when trying to rescue items, as the water could be charged with electricity, and raw sewage or toxic substances may be present in the flood. If you're not sure if this is the case, it's best to be on the safe side.

If your homeowner's insurance policy covers flooding, call them. Your insurance company can inform you what options you have for a claim, and they can advise you on what needs to be done when you get your contractors in to repair things.

Be sure to research contractors online and check out their rating on the Better Business Bureau. DO NOT hire a contractor without they're providing good references and testimonials, and ask whether their workers are fully insured.
