What to Do When Your Office or Home Gets Flooded

The first thing you should do is call in the water damage restoration team from Hippo Carpet Cleaning Chantilly. However, there are some things you can do to protect your property while you are waiting for us to arrive.

  • If it is safe to do so, turn off all power to the rooms that are affected.
  • Look for the source of the flooding. If it's freshwater flooding, turn off the valves to the fixtures that are leaking. If there is clean water damage, try and remove as much water as you possibly can, or wait for our restoration team to arrive for emergency water extraction. If water is contaminated (sometimes called grey or black) and smells terrible, it is no doubt very unsanitary, so leave this to the experts!
  • Try and remove items from the affected area like books and shoes and papers, rugs, etc. Put them in unaffected areas; also remove paintings and pictures from the walls that are wet or are in danger of becoming wet.
  • Wipe furniture down; prop up wet cushions to dry, and open drawers, closets, and cabinets to increase ventilation to enhance drying.

  • Don't start removing wall-to-wall carpeting without a professional.
  • Don't enter rooms where there is standing water until the electricity is switched off.
