Water Flooding Your Home – What to do?

Water removal and damage restoration in Columbus.

It is critical to take decisive steps when a pipe burst and water is flooding and causing water damage in your home. The first step to prevent further water damage is to shut off the main water supply located in the front of your yard near the sidewalk or street. You need to determine if it is safe for you to shut off all electricity to your home. You need to assess if you can get to the main breaker box without any contact with water. You can proceed to shut off your electricity if there is NO water around or in the main electrical breaker box. Do not proceed if you see water or dampness in that area because you are at high risk of electrocution.

It is preferable if you have already determined the plumbing company you will contact before an emergency like this has happened. Restoration 1 of Columbus and the surrounding areas is fully equipped and prepared to fix the burst pipe and restore any water damage.
