Electricity Out

If electricity is off, clean out freezer and refrigerator and leave doors propped open, or place charcoal in unit. Pour antifreeze in toilet bowls, tanks, sink and tub drains to prevent freeze damage if heat is off in winter.

If your electricity is expected to be out for an extended period of time retain a contractor to board up open windows, roofs, or other penetrations in order to prevent additional damage.

Before turning the power back on, have a qualified electrician inspect all wiring that has been subjected to flood water. Even if your basement did not suffer water damage, the interior structure may be soaked and can still be a good conductor of electricity.
