It’s hard to keep your head straight when a pipe bursts and your home is starting to fill up with water. Worse still when it’s 2am in the morning.

Here’s 4 steps you need to take when this happens:

  1. TURN OFF THE ELECTRICITY

Turn off the power in your home before wading into water. If it’s dark, grab a flashlight and be careful.

  1. TURN YOUR WATER OFF

Find the shut-off valve to whatever is leaking but the best thing to do is shut the water off at the main valve. This is located next to the water meter, most likely outside your house, and you will need a water key.

  1. GET YOUR FURNITURE OUT OF THE WAY
  2. CALL YOUR INSURANCE AGENT

If it’s after hours, call Blue Chip Restoration. We provide 24/7 emergency response.
