After the Flood
Avoid Dangerous Situations
If the flood was serious enough that it required evacuation, then you will want to make sure the area is safe for you return. Check for any visible damage to your structure. If you think there might be any damage to your utility lines, contact the right utility company immediately.
Even if the flood waters look clear, keep in mind they can be contaminated with sewer waste or household chemicals. If you are going to go near the water, wear proper protection.
It is good to have a visual history of the situation so you can fully document damage and repairs for your insurance company. Take the pictures immediately, as you do not want to decrease the extent of your coverage by waiting to take pictures after water has begun to recede.
