Today Safe Clean Carpet, Upholstery & Tile wants to go over the steps that you should take if your house floods.
Stop Source of Water Leak or Flood
If you come home to a flooded house the first thing that you want to do is turn your water off. Once your water is off the flooding will not be able to continue.

Once you have the water turned off you want to see if you can locate where the flooding was coming from. You will want to check some of the common culprits like water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines, and sinks. Most of the time one of these things is the cause of your flood. When you know what the cause of the flood is you can know what to address.
