We’ve all been patiently waiting for months now, but the time has come. Spring is finally here! Most people assume we are all blue skies from here on out, forgetting that heavy rainfall is also a part of this beautiful season. Flooding can become a major problem, and with everyone forgetting about the awful rainfall, how are we supposed to ensure we are all prepared? Fortunately, we are here to help you handle flood damage.
99% of the time, water damage from flooding is going to kick off in the basement. Damage can range from a few puddles to a few feet of water. No matter, if you see water covering most of the floor, make sure you cut the power. Electrocution shouldn’t be on your list of worries in this situation. When the power is cut and the basement is safe, you may begin your project. First of all, the water MUST be removed. There’s no way around it. Mold growth can begin in as little as 48 hours and you definitely don’t want to add that to your plate. Carpets that have been soaked too long might need to be disposed of. Not only must you remove the water, but you also have to dry the place out.
Drying your home can be tricky. Even when all of the water is soaked/vacuumed up, there still may be moisture within the floor/walls. To remove the excess water, get some circulation flowing throughout your home. Fans, ceiling fans, and opening doors and windows will be beneficial in this situation. The more the better. Or, you can take a different approach. If you have central air and/or dehumidifiers, you can use those instead. Make sure to keep all windows closed when choosing this method, as the process won’t work accurately while they are open. If mold is spotted, ensure that you have a professional come check it out for you.
