Returning home after a flood or storm
After a flood or storm you will need to check your home for structural damage, gas leaks, contaminated water, damaged septic tanks and more. Helpful information:
Restoring power to your property
If there has been significant damage to your property, make sure a licensed electrician checks that it is safe to turn your power back on.
After a power outage, restoring power is usually the responsibility of your local electricity distribution company, who own and maintain the poles and wires bringing power to your home.
