Restoring Your Home From Flood Damage After a Storm

Flood Damage After a Storm

Natural Disasters, such as storms, can cause significant damage to homes. Unfortunately, floods are the most common type of damage caused by storms and require immediate attention. Flood damage risks structural problems, cracks in flooring and drywall, and mold growth. The most important thing to do when you experience flooding is to seek professional help in a timely manner. The sooner you seek help, the faster your home can be restored to minimize severe damage.

What is Flood Restoration?

Flood Restoration is the process of restoring a home back to its pre-damaged state. This consists of 5 major steps:

1. Flood Assessment 

Determining the scope of flood damage is the first step in the restoration process. It is important to know the extent of the damage to treat it properly. 

2. Removing Water 

First things first. Before damage repair can begin, all water needs to be removed. The water removal process begins almost immediately. Restoration specialists typically use pumps to suck up the water. The more water, the longer this step will take.

3. Dehumidifying and Drying

After the water is removed, specialized equipment is used to remove moisture and dry out the space. Leftover moisture can sink deep into floors, walls, and other structures in the home, causing further damage and risking mold growth. 

4. Cleaning and Deodorizing

After the space is dry, cleaning solutions and disinfectant are used to sanitize and deodorize the space. Unfortunately, sometimes furniture cannot be properly restored and replacement is necessary. 

5. Restoring the Home

The last step is repair and restoration. This can range from replacing floors and drywall, to major construction and remodeling projects. This all depends on the severity of flooding, and how long it took to begin restoration services.
