  • Slowly use pumps and pails to remove standing water.
  • Use a wet/dry shop vacuum to mop up the remaining water.
  • Dress appropriately and keep children and animals away from the flooded area.
  • Don't use flooded appliances, electrical outlets, switch boxes or fuse-breaker panels until an electrician has ensured they are safe.
  • Clean washable items (such as clothes) immediately to prevent mould.
  • Documents, books or photos should be air-dried.
  • Throw out any medicine, cosmetics or toiletries that have come in contact with flood water.
