The time taken to do a home flooding cleanup or restoration will depend on the severity of the flood and the damage to the affected areas on your property. At DrierHomes, we begin by assessing the situation, and we go over the cleanup and restoration plan with you. We will then remove the water and any unsalvageable items (if any) from your property, clean, sanitize, and deodorize the affected areas, and start the dry-out process with our specialized drying equipment. We always work as swiftly as possible since we realize how important it is to act quickly in water damage situations.
If the water damages have not been addressed properly and in a timely manner, there could be risks both to your property and health. A flooded home can result in severe damage to the structure of your home which can reduce its market value, while also endangering your safety and that of your family. If left unattended, water damage will result in mold and bacteria that can negatively impact your health. Shortness of breath, dizziness, headaches, and skin and eye irritation, are a few health hazards you can feel when returning to a flooded home that has not been cleaned properly.
There are a few things you can do to save your valuable possessions in the event of a flood:
- Move all valuable objects that you can lift to a dry place.
- If water is coming out from the ceiling, try to remove any objects standing below the water damage (a sofa, for example). If it is not possible to move them, cover them with plastic.
- Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between the furniture legs and wet carpet/floor to avoid further damage
- If you have any fur or leather clothing, make sure you hang them separately to dry at room temperature. This way you’ll prevent them from getting a wet smell.
