Flooded? Disaster Restoration Services Can Get You Back on Your Feet

March 15, 2016


Spring is here, and with it usually comes some unpredictable weather. Unfortunately, for some people, heavy storms bring large amounts of rain that leads to unexpected flooding. If you experience water in your home or business, disaster restoration services can help homeowners get things back to normal in no time.

Even just a little bit of water in your home can cause devastation. When it’s unexpected, it can ruin floors, walls, belongings, and priceless mementos. Homeowners who experience this often feel overwhelmed and paralyzed, not knowing how to start the clean-up process.

When this happens, it’s best to call someone experienced in disaster clean-up. Having necessary equipment ready to go, as well as procedures in place, means they can come in and get the job done with minimal disruption to your life.

After removing the water, they then take several steps to ensure the entire home is dry. The first step is using air movement (powerful fans) to dry up any water that isn’t able to be physically removed. Then, dehumidifers are used to make sure all moisture is out.

One of the biggest potential problems after a flood is mold and mildew. Even just a small amount of moisture can result in the growth of mold spores, which will grow and spread until you have a big problem on your hands. Not only is it expensive to remove, but it can cause respiratory health problems in family members.

Professional disaster services after water damage can include an anti-microbial application to discourage the growth of mold. This important step ensures that once the flood damage is cleaned up and dried out, there won’t be any lurking surprises down the road.
