What should I do if my house floods?
Updated: Sep 19
With more than half of Iowa counties now under disaster proclamations from the recent flooding, many hundreds of Iowan residents are awaiting the water to recede and many remain uncertain as to whether they could ever move back. Many will be forced to rebuild or move, others will need to rely on water damage services like that provided by Clean Indeed Carpet to recover what remains of their home.
The basics of what to do after a flood include the following:
Stop the water at its source
Turn off the electricity only if you can do so without stepping into water
Evacuate the premises
Contact your insurer (or your landlord, if you rent)
Then clean up to prevent further damage from mold
Call Clean Indeed Carpet to help you with the last step
