#2 Do It Yourself – First, you will want to find the source of the flooding. You’ll want to check your bathrooms and plumbing, a roof for roofing leaks and gutters. Next, you will want to turn off all electronics and power in the affected areas.
Next, use mops, towels, and whatever other items that can absorb some of the water. Then you will want to dry the area with fans. You could also use a dehumidifier to keep moisture level down. After that, you may want to follow up with a water damage professional to access how bad the cost is and if it is severe enough to warrant the help of a professional.
