Electricity & Water Damage: How to Stay Safe Following a Flood

Since water and electricity don’t mix, always call C&Z Construction immediately following a flood or other water disaster. You need a professional to conduct a thorough inspection and repair before restoring the power.

If the disaster has affected a widespread area of Harrisburg, emergency services may not be immediately available. As you wait for a disaster recovery electrician to arrive at your door, take these safety precautions:

  • Wear rubber gloves and rubber-soled boots any time you work with electrical circuits, especially in damp conditions. The rubber acts as an insulator to help prevent electric shock.
  • Turn off the main electrical power at the circuit breaker box. Shut off all circuit breakers to ensure the power is off everywhere. Only touch switches while wearing rubber gloves or using a dry stick.
  • If your main switch is located in the basement, pump all flood water out before attempting to work on the electrical system. If the ground is wet around the circuit breaker box, stand on a dry board before touching any switches.
  • With the power off, disconnect all appliances and electronics from outlets and unscrew all light bulbs from their sockets.
  • Don’t attempt to use your electrical system again until a disaster recovery electrician has assessed the damage, cleaned receptacles and switches, and thoroughly dried all wires and connectors. This may take days, depending on how wet the system is and if any heat is available to speed up the drying process.

Emergency Electricians: How Electrical Power Is Restored After a Disaster

Even once the circuits and wires in your home are in good condition, you might still be left waiting on the electric company to restore power, especially if the disaster was widespread. Rest assured that your electricity provider takes all necessary steps to restore power as soon as the storm has cleared and it’s safe for personnel to work.

The first priority is to assess life-threatening, safety, and health issues, such as repairing downed power lines. Next, repairs are made to the transmission lines that serve the greatest number of homes and businesses in the area. This helps to restore power quickly to the greatest number of people possible. The estimated restoration time depends on the size and duration of the storm, the extent of the damage, and where you live.
