Flood Damage For Beginners
If you’ve ever spilled a drink on your carpet, then you know
what a pain any sort of water damage clean up can be. You soak up water for what seems like days,
hope against hope you don’t have a stain left over, and a few days later you’re
wondering what that musty smell is.
Now stop to think what has to happen with flood damage clean
up or hurricane clean up; flood clean up jobs are long, multi-leveled processes
that have to be done right the first time, lest you risk having to spend
thousands of extra dollars to make your home and property right again.
It’s not just wiping up the water, it’s thoroughly drying
all surfaces, checking basements and crawlspaces for standing water, carpet
cleaning and drying, mold remediation, furniture repair, electrical systems
inspection, making sure floors aren’t warped and drywall isn’t swelled.
Basement flood cleanup is an art form all its own, given the
low lying nature of basements and their propensity for moisture retention.
It’s about knowing where to look for damage that may not be
readily apparent, and making sure your home is thoroughly treated and dried out
so that no subsequent problems manifest themselves.
