Know Who to Call
Know who to call.
Knowing who to call after a catastrophic event occurs should be a priority on your family emergency plan. Strong to severe storms can strike at anytime of the day or night causing water damage. Roofs are torn off or damaged from strong winds allowing water to leak into the home and in between the outside and inside walls. Flooding does not always come from weather related events but household items such as:
- busted pipes
- water heater
- washing machines
- ice maker
Water can cause major damage to the stability of your homes structure and contents. Many government organizations, including the EPA, suggest that mold and bacteria can begin to form in wet carpet as soon as 24 to 48 hours after becoming wet. The sooner mitigation starts on your home the less cost to you as a homeowner and the probability of salvaging your contents. Leaving water damage for too long can decrease the value of your home. Carpet is broken down, wood floors, and walls weaken with water damage. Flood waters can contain bacteria that is harmful and can linger on your belongings. Leaving water in your home too long will cause fungus to show up.
