Floods can be natural or not but either way considered disasters, which will affect your house or condo and put your life and your family’s lives at risk. It is important that when a disaster like flood strikes, you must remain calm and take the necessary measures to ensure the safety of everyone.
It is important that in the event of any natural disasters and floods, you choose a company with extensive experience in handling various floods in order to make the best decision to restore your house to its previous state as soon as possible.
First things first. Save your condo from the flood.
Determining where the water is coming from.
It is important to find the source and type of water you have to deal with. This data can determine the correct tools and methods needed for the cleaning process. When you have to deal with sewage it’s going to be a different story. Black water contains different bacteria that can be harmful to your health. In this case, you should call a professional company immediately.
You need to understand that removing the water is half the job.
During water damage or flood, the first thing to do is resolve the source of the problem and remove the accumulated water. The second is to remove any residual moisture that can cause toxic mold and damage the structure of the house.
Inspect Unlivable Spaces for Water Damage.
Inspecting unlivable spaces is the most important thing to do when you are damaged by a flood. If they go unnoticed for a period of time, they will cause more damage. The riskiest spaces are the attic and basement. So don’t forget to check these out.
What can you do in the case of a condo flood?
If you have been warned that a storm may be approaching and you live in an area that is said to be affected, it is best to move until the sky clears. Don’t stay on the ground floor of the building and get your most precious items out of there.
Always make it a priority to disconnect power and check for gas leaks, but don’t put yourself in danger. Smell for leaks and burned wires for damage. Any flood damage must be repaired within at least 24 hours to ensure the damage does not become irreversible. After the flood is over, items not significantly affected by the water will be removed, which can make the job of emergency repair personnel easier. Generally speaking, if your home or condo is affected by some type of flood, dealing with it on your own is going to be impossible, so it is highly recommended that you contact an emergency restoration company to handle the job.
