Home and business owners faced with flooding from recent rains should take immediate action to minimize the amount of damage water can cause, says the Institute for Business & Home Safety. As soon as it is safe to do so, disconnect all electronics/electrical equipment and move it to a dry location. Remove as much standing water as possible from inside the building. Begin to remove water-damaged materials immediately. Ventilate with fans and/or dehumidifiers. Acting quickly can increase the chance of salvaging usable materials, reduce the amount of rust, rot and mold that might develop, and limit the likelihood of structural problems. (Source: IBHS)
