Why is flood water dangerous?

5/22/2018 (Permalink)

Flood water that hits from the outside can have all kinds of trouble contained within. Among the bad ingredients are raw sewage, pesticides,
fertilizers, viruses, petroleum products and many pieces of debris and garbage. People should not even touch flood water as it could be contaminated.

If there is standing water you should not touch it or walk into it  because you may not know whether the water is covering a live electrical socket which could electrocute you if you touch the water.

In a serious flood situation, you should evacuate your home or business  and call professionals to provide mitigation for your situation. A professional service has the expertise, the proper clothing and the equipment to get the job done, and you do not. Especially if you have a water in home or a water in business situation.
