Flooded Kitchen in Mobile AL A flooded room in your home is a site no one wants to experience or see. SERVPRO of Mobile County is the trusted leader in water restoration.

My Kitchen Flooded, Now What?

Whether waking up on a busy weekday morning or sleeping on the weekend, walking into a kitchen to the sight of standing water can send a homeowner into panic mode. If a broken pipe, a forgotten running sink or a malfunctioning appliance causes the flooded kitchen, the end result can lead to serious problems if the clean up isn’t done properly.

How to Dry Out a Kitchen?

Whether it is a small water leak to a large area of standing water, rapid response is the first steps to take. Here is a list of best practices to further potential damage.

  • Identify the source of the water leak, and turn off the water supply to the house.
  • Turn off power due to potential electrocution issues
  • Remove all furniture and rugs to a dry area
  • Remove as much water as possible with a wet/dry shop vacuum, mop or towels
  • Open all drawers, cabinets, and closest that may have gotten wet to allow circulation
  • Encourage air circulation by turning on fans, opening windows and running the air conditioner.
  • If the damaged area is large, take photos and document the damage. Contact your homeowner’s insurance agent
  • Contact SERVPRO of Mobile County and check out our water damage tips on our website for further suggestions until our First Responder arrives onsite.
