The source for the flooding must be identified in order to stop further flooding and water damage. If you have ever experienced flooding, a hidden source and hidden water is sometimes hard to identify. But, the professionals have the proper equipment in order to locate the source and get the flooding stopped for you.
All electronics and appliances must be turned off as well because this can cause damage not only to the appliances and electronics but to you and those you love. The professionals know how to do this, and you should also know how to act fast about these things in emergency situations where water is involved.
