Appliances - Water Damage Information

If your appliances have been exposed to water due to flooding, there could be danger of fire or electrical shock. Before you do anything else, first make sure power to the home or to the circuit breakers for the appliances are disconnected. Then unplug the appliances before touching or inspecting them.

Deciding whether to repair or replace gas and electrical appliances damaged by floodwaters can be a difficult decision, since safety is a consideration. Deciding to repair or replace damaged equipment depends on factors like the water level and the amount of time exposed to water.
