ENTERING A FLOODED AREA OF THE HOME IS AN ELECTROCUTION RISK AND SHOULD BE AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS
You never expect it; you leave home in the morning confident that all will be well at the end of the day and, that evening, unlock your front door to a water disaster. Whether coming from a leaking pipe, sump pump outage or a water heater that is past its prime, water can cause more damage in an hour or two than you have ever imagined. Unless cleanup is handled quickly and properly, by a water damage inspection company, such as AmeriDri, the effects of water in your home and the belongings you cherish can be catastrophic.

Water is destructive. It quickly saturates carpeting, de-laminates furniture and damages the wood, steel and drywall that are part of your home’s construction.
When flooding occurs in a residence or business from a burst pipe, many home owners unfortunately do not know the proper steps to take to handle the situation. In many cases, they end up risking their own safety by entering the flooded area and attempting to salvage their personal possessions. However, all home owners should be aware that entering a flooded area of the home is an electrocution risk and should be avoided at all costs. Always shut the main electricity off at the breaker before entering the water damaged area. Instead, when a flood occurs, the absolute best course of action to take is to stay away from the area or areas that got flooded, and contact a water damage restoration company as soon as possible.
WATER DAMAGE RESTORATION REMEDIATION
Many water damage restoration companies offer emergency assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. If the damage is from an interior pipe burst, water leak from a refrigerator water line, toilet supply line, hot water heater or any number of pressurized water pipes in your home, you most likely have homeowners insurance to cover the damage. Therefore, at the first sight of flooding, it can save home owners and business owners a lot of money in long term restoration costs, if you call for help from such a company immediately. This way, the professionals in restoration can stop the flooding, get any standing water pumped out, and take preventative action to reduce the chances of mold growth and foundation damage that might occur in the future as a result of the flood, by adding air movers and dehumidifiers to properly dry out the wet areas.
People call a water damage restoration service because improper cleanup methods after a flood, broken pipe or overflowing toilet caused major problems in the home.
No matter how big or small the mold area is, you should get the mold inspected by a professional because it can cause trouble. Mold can cause structural damage to a home as well as many health issues. If you see mold in your home, it should never go untreated because it will continue to spread and grow as long as the area is wet. Mold should always be removed by a water damage restoration service that is also certified in mold removal, to make sure that it is removed safely and so that it prevents bigger issues in the future.
