How to Remove Water From a Flooded Room

There’s no getting around it: Major flooding requires professional clean-up with with professional equipment. But if you’ve got just a small amount of standing water in your basement, it’s better to tackle the project yourself rather than wait for a pro to arrive. Here’s how to safely remove flood water from a basement before it does even more damage.

  • Don’t touch any electrical devices (especially those still plugged into an outlet) until the basement has been sufficiently dried out.
