What to Do in the Event of a Water Emergency

Water damage in Atlanta can have long-lasting, expensive effects when not treated properly. When a pipe bursts, a plumbing problem causes a leak or backup, or when flooding from a storm threatens your home, it’s essential to act quickly to reduce the amount of damage and keep costs down. Follow these steps if you have a water emergency in your home.

After you find water in your home:

  • Turn off the water supply in your home if the source is from a leak
  • During a flood, turn off electricity to your home if you can safely reach the fuse box; otherwise, wait until a professional can do so for you. Do not enter a flooded basement if the electricity is still on!
  • If possible, ventilate the area by opening windows and turning on fans
  • Vacate the property if needed
  • Call Tidal Wave Response
