Professional Water Extraction

Mar 16, 2008
If you have endured significant flooding in your house, this is a very serious issue. The structure of the house and a number of your personal effects are either destroyed or in jeopardy of becoming destroyed. When you have a major home flooding, sometimes there will be so much that can be rescued if the clean up starts as immediately. The threat of damage might be less significant if the water and furnishings are taken out soon enough. Of course, in a tragedy like flooding from a ricer, creek, or hurricane, your house can get many feet of water everywhere and it may take days or perhaps even weeks for the water to leave. In a instance like this, the best can do is wait.

When the water from a Mother Nature storm does finally recede, home owners are confused as to what to do next. After this type of home flooding, the smartest solution if at all possible, is to get a water damage specialist to do the job. Hopefully you have flood insurance that can be liable for this as clean up like this may be a little expensive. Flood damage clean up is a large job and it could take weeks for the task to be wrapped up, even with experienced teams.

If you are able to hire specialists, be sure that they are licensed. There are a number of issues to be think about before you turn your damaged residence over to someone you may not know. For one thing, in devastating situations like Hurricane Katrina, many people especially senior citizens were misled when they employed crews that were not really qualified to do the job. This is an avoidable mistake. Be sure of their business license and their insurance coverage right from the start. Be sure of their work record however you can. Find and speak with previous clients, and speak to the Better Business Bureau. This is no situation to hire an amateur or company with no real qualifications no matter how sincere and sympathetic they are.

Every water damage professional must have training in how to clean up mold and other health hazardous materials from your flooded home. This is a dangerous result from flooding and mold of elimination is just as important as taking care of the other damages to the residence. Leave no doubt that you and the people you hire have no differences of opinions about what tasks are to be taken care of. Know the amount of money you will be spending and how long it will take, within reason. Obtain estimates from several professionals as well. Individuals in tragic situations can get taken advantage of easily. Make sure you are not one of them.
