Flood is a destructive force of nature. It submerges the entire house, damaging everything inside it. What’s more frustrating is that you need to clean the mess right away to prevent mold. Instead of letting this incident turn for the worse, why not take action beforehand to save you from all the trouble?
Mitigation is an effort to cut the risks of damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage by reducing the impact of such calamities. Simply put, preparation can save your home when the next flood strikes.
Home Inspection and Insurance
Know the flood zone risk of your home by asking for a flood map from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). If your area is prone to flood, we suggest that you apply for a National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). This way, you don’t have to worry when the next flood strikes because we can prevent further water damage and help you get the most out of your insurance.
It usually takes about four or more days to dry a water-damaged home due to Florida’s humid climate, especially if you live in the northern and central area. With mold manifesting within the next 24 hours, it’ll be too late to wait for that time span.
Don’t fret, however, just keep in touch with our water damage contractors and they can take care of this issue quickly by using the most innovative methods and equipment. You can be sure that water is drained completely from every corner of the house after a flood.
Water Damage Restoration
Apart from floodwater, you also have to take note of moisture that seeped into your home. After cleaning up, there’s no guarantee that it’s free from moisture intrusion. In fact, it might be hiding behind your walls. With our infrared thermal image device, we can locate intrusions without taking anything down and further destroying your house.
