When a flood event occurs, it is a destructive force of nature. It submerges the whole house, damaging everything within it. What is more frustrating is that you want to wash the mess immediately to prevent mold. Instead of letting this episode turn for the worse, why do not do it ahead to help save you from all the trouble?
Mitigation is an attempt to decrease the risks of damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage by reducing the effect of such calamities. Simply put, preparation can save your house when the next flood strikes.
Know the flood zone threat of your house by requesting a flood map from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). If your region is prone to flood, we suggest that you apply for a National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). In this manner, you do not have to worry if the next flood strikes because we could prevent further water damage and help you get the maximum from your insurance.
It typically takes about four or more days to dry a water-damaged home due to Florida’s humid climate, especially in the event that you live in the northern and central place. With mold manifesting within the following 24 hours, it will be too late to wait around for that time period.
Don’t fret, however, just keep in touch with our water damage contractors and they can look after this matter quickly by using the most innovative methods and gear. You can be certain water is drained completely from every corner of the house after a flood.
Apart from floodwater, you also must observe moisture that seeped into your home. After cleaning up, there is no guarantee that it’s free from moisture intrusion. In fact, it might be hiding behind your walls. Together with our infrared thermal picture apparatus, we could find intrusions without taking anything down and further destroying your house.
