The Aftermath Of Flooding
There’s so much to accomplish during the aftermath of a flood. This can include water removal, restoring furniture, fixing the flooring/walls, etc. After all of the ‘cleanup’ is completed, there’s still something to think about. Dehumidifying. Dehumidifying is a task that shouldn’t be skipped or forgotten about. And here’s why..
Sometimes when a home floods, it can contain water from an overflowing sewer, river, etc. This can be dangerous because of all of the bacteria and contaminants in the water. There is potential for bugs, decay, feces, and more. None of which you would like in your home. Dehumidifying can dry out this bacteria and such to bring your home to normal standing. Mold is another issue when it comes to water damage. Mold can cause serious sickness, especially to infants and elderly. Common symptoms are allergy-like. Dehumidifying a home can also cure this.
