What is a Flood Cleanup and why is it an urgent issue?

If you are unfortunate enough to experience a natural flood or even suffer from internal flooding from a broken appliance in your home, then there are some things you need to urgently consider.

The first is the safety of you and your family. Second is the damage to your property and possessions and finally, you need to think about the clean-up operation which will be required.

Of course, if the water has come from an external source, such as a river or lake, then there is also the potential for contamination which will need to be taken into account.

Once the flood water has receded, it is important that you take action quickly to dry out your property as much as possible. This can be done by opening all doors and windows and using fans and dehumidifiers.

If the flooding was caused by an internal source, such as a burst pipe, then you will need to turn off the water at the mains and call out a professional plumber to fix the problem.

Once your property is safe, you can start to assess the damage and begin the process of cleaning up.  Any carpets or rugs which have been soaked will need to be removed and cleaned or replaced. The same is true of any upholstered furniture which has been soaked.

Any flooded books should be dried out slowly and carefully as they are very difficult to replace. Any food which has been in contact with flood water will need to be thrown away as it will be contaminated.

The final, and potentially most dangerous, aspect of flood cleanup is the presence of mold. Flood water creates the perfect conditions for mold to grow and this can present a serious health risk to you and your family. If you suspect that there is mold present, then you should call out a professional mold removal company like Distinctive Restoration, which will be able to safely and effectively remove it.

Help Is Just 1 Hour Away

Cole and mike did an outstanding job cleaning and restoring our travertine floors. The results were like night and day -nicely cleaned and rough patches honed and restored. They took great care not to damage the natural stone. The master shower was in particularly bad shape but they managed to hone, restore and seal it until it looked beautiful.
