How to Handle Water Damage
Water Damage Gets Mitigated with Professional Help
A flood can happen anywhere around the home or business and can occur for any number of reasons. Some are old pipes which have finally given up the ghost or have been ruptured by frozen water, faulty seals on a dishwasher or shower unit or external damage to a building during a storm are just a few of the ways a flood can occur.

Firstly check for any obvious dangers such as electrical equipment or instruments that may cause injuries such as machinery or tools; it may be necessary to isolate the electricity supply. DO NOT handle any electrical equipment.
