- Stop the flood from spreading. Turn off the source of water to malfunctioning appliances and broken pipes. Unplug electrical appliances to prevent electrocution or electrical fires.
- Protect furnishings and belongings from further damage. Remove belongings that are not yet wet and transfer them to a dry area.
- Remove wet furniture, carpets, and belongings. Store them outside in the open air where they cannot drip on things and cause more damage.
- Drain or mop up the standing water. A pump may be needed to remove water that cannot be drained away.
- Clean up dirt and sludge. Use a bleach solution as a disinfectant especially if there is sewage contamination.
- The health risks from sewage contamination cannot be overemphasized. Bacteria and viruses are present in sewage water even if the water appears clear.
