Dangers are not over even when the water goes down. Do not endanger yourself or your family after
a water event. Keep children and pets away. Try to protect yourself and your family from stress, fatigue, and
water-related health hazards.
The following precautions will help neutralize the common water-related hazards, insuring a safe recovery
1. Determine Structural Stability
Determine whether your property is structurally safe to enter. Before entering your home or business,
take a look at the ceiling and supporting walls. Do not enter if the ceiling is sagging due to water buildup or if
walls have collapsed.
If you are not certain the building is safe or if you have any question regarding personal safety, stay out and
have a professional make an assessment.
If the building is determined safe, walk in carefully and inspect indoor stability. Do not enter any deep standing
If your property is determined unsafe or you cannot live in your home while repairs are being made, make
arrangements for temporary alternate lodging. Keep records of all additional expenses incurred as a result. Most
insurance policies will cover additional living expenses.
2. Cut Off the Power Supply
Assume all power lines are active and functioning. Turn off the power to your unit by disabling the
main circuit breaker panel even if the neighborhood power grid is down. The panel is usually installed in the
garage, utility room, basement, or outdoors on the side of the home.
Do not remove excess water using regular household vacuums. Avoid using any electrical appliances especially while
standing on wet carpets or floors.
If you choose to use a generator for temporary electricity supply, do not run it in an enclosed area. The
generator's engine releases carbon monoxide that is extremely hazardous to health. Be sure to let the engine cool
off before refueling and avoid using extension cords.
3. Turn Off the Water Supply
Turn off the main water supply. Locate the main valve and turn it clockwise to turn it off. You may
need to use pliers or an adjustable wrench. The main water valve is usually located in the basement, near the water
meter, or outside the building. If you can not complete this task yourself, contact a plumber immediately.
Do not use piped water until you are sure it is safe. Use bottled water or boiled water for washing, drinking, and
4. Turn Off the Gas Supply
Check for the odor of natural gas and shut off the gas supply lines. The main gas valve is usually
located on the gas supply pipe, near the meter.
5. Beware of Animals
Watch out for stray pets, reptiles, and rodents that might have taken shelter in your property after
being disturbed by the water. Be cautious of approaching any animal. Use a stick to poke through debris before
removing it. Contact your local animal control officer for assistance
6. Use Protective Gear
In many cases of water damage events, water is contaminated with sewage, mud, and other debris,
presenting health hazards. Protect yourself during clean up using protective gear such as:
- Disposable plastic gloves
- Respirator with a particulate filter, N-95 respirator, or half-face respirator with a HEPA
(High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter
- Goggles or protective eyewear
- Disposable full body clothing, coveralls, or a lab coat
- Head gear
- Rubber boots or foot coverings
