You’ve just found yourself in the situation everyone dreads: your home has been damaged by water. You need a flood damage repair specialist immediately to start the clean-up process, but who should you hire? Chances are the corner hardware store isn’t going to have the best advice or equipment. This is why you need to hire a specialist that handles this kind of work all the time, like Xpress Restoration Inc.
If you are a victim of flood damage, hiring professionals can be the right decision. They have the equipment and manpower to make sure the job is finished in a short time. Many homeowners do not realize that flood cleanup must be done as soon as possible because floodwaters can spread contamination and disease-creating organisms through their property.
If your home has been flooded, it’s important that you take safety precautions. Do not enter your home if there is standing water and do not turn on the power or use the gas until a professional has inspected your home and deemed them safe to use.
Use your phone only when absolutely necessary, as this will drain its battery quickly. Never eat food that has been in contact with floodwaters; discard any flooded food item that doesn’t have a waterproof container, such as a can or bottle.
Also throw out any food products in cardboard containers, as these may be contaminated even if they haven’t been in contact with floodwaters.
Discard all perishable foods, including meat and vegetables, unless they were kept below 40 degrees Fahrenheit the entire time they were exposed to the floodwaters. If the power has been out for several hours, discard everything in the refrigerator. Food contamination can happen quickly and it isn’t worth taking a chance on spoiled food.
There are some projects that should never be done by the average do-it-yourselfer, and this is one of them.
Flood damage repair is something that should be left to professionals. Not only do they have the right tools and equipment for the job, but they also have the expertise needed to make sure that everything is properly restored.
When you call in a professional, they will first assess all the damage that has been done by the flood. This will help them determine what repairs are necessary and which items need to be replaced. It’s important to realize that, in some cases, water damage can be more severe than it looks on the surface.
The water may cause structural damage or even compromise electrical wiring and other components of your home. Therefore a thorough assessment is so crucial. Only after this assessment can you know what steps need to be taken next to restore your home or business back to its original condition following a flood disaster.
