Minimize Flood Water Damage

 
 
 

We all have seen photos of other people’s homes half submerged by swirling, muddy flood waters. A great many of those persons never expected the water to flow over their window sills. So they made mistakes that increased their losses and suffering. There are simple precautions that could minimize the mud and water damage and allow you to perform your own flood damage clean up. Most floods can be seen coming. Government engineers and the weather service frequently can predict the height to which a river will rise and cause flooding at least 24 hours in advance. But much property is lost in almost every flood because people fail to understand the warnings. They don’t understand whether or not a flood cresting at the number of feet specified in the warning will affect their homes. In many communities, there are prepared maps that show what areas will be covered if a river rises 20, 25, 30 feet, and so on. By consulting flood maps, you may save yourself a lot of time and trouble and eliminate the need for an expensive water removal service.

Which way would you go and what would you take with you if a flood were coming? Never plan to sit out a flood on the second floor or the roof and watch the flood and water damage happening before your eyes. That is the way lives are lost. You can usually escape a flood, without even getting your feet wet, if you start in time and have a plan to where you will evacuate. There is usually enough time if you understand the warnings for you to remove the things you will need for your family and yourself. Pack your bags as though you were leaving for a vacation. Take comfortable and warm clothing and toilet articles.

 
 

Flood Water Damage Repair

 

Water Flood Damage ServicesThere are precautions that you can take to limit the damage of a flood and reduce flood water damage repair costs. People who know what floods are like can accomplish an astonishing amount of work before the water begins to lap at their doorsteps. They lug their canned food and everything else that is movable and valuable up out of their basement. They turn off the furnace and shut off the utilities at the mains. Then start with the first floor rugs and move everything possible to the second floor or attic. Even a small attic will hold an amazing number of articles in an emergency of approaching water flood damage. And what is left often can be stacked on a scaffold made by placing planks across sawhorses or sturdy boxes.  Finally, open the windows wide and prop the doors open firmly. This makes it as easy as possible for the water to flow through the house. There is likely to be only about a tenth as much mud left in a house that is wide open as in one that is closed.

 
 

Water Flood Damage Services

 

After you have removed the things you will need most, think of the articles you will want first when the water recedes. If possible, move your washing machine to a higher floor. You will be using this appliance more than any other after your home has been damaged by water. Take, if you can, shovels, rakes, mops, brooms and boots with you in the car. Toss a sack of clean rags and paper towels in your car because the demand for them probably will exceed the supply after a flood. Then pack any items and photos that are dear to you and could never be replaced. After the flood has receded, you now can begin flood damage clean up yourself or hire a flood water damage restoration service.
