What Are Water Damage Crews And What Do They Do

Jul 18, 2008
For all those people that have had their homes flooded in recent years because of a natural disaster of some kind, they can probably tell you that one of the hardest things to endure is to have to sit and wait in a safe place while the water slowly recedes from their flooded homes. The clock has to tick twice as slow for them than it ever did before knowing that there is nothing that can be done until the water recedes.

Actually, there is one thing they can do while they wait. If they know that the damage to the home is bad, but not necessarily irreparable, then once they have contacted their insurance agency, they can already begin the process of getting something done. Many times an insurance agency will be ready to send in a water damage team the moment that they get the go ahead from someone in authority that is it safe to go back to the home.

Even when water might have been present in a home for a week or two, the sooner that a water damage specialist can be sent in to evaluate the damage, the better it is for the home. Any excess water left from the flood needs to be removed immediately. When a natural disaster flood takes place there is likely to be additional clean up besides just water.

You need to make sure yourself that the water damage specialist that your insurance agency or you call is also qualified to know how to remove the mud, silt, and sewage that may contaminate the home as well. These matters are just as serious as the water and they have to be cleaned up quickly and thoroughly in order for your home to be fit to live in again. Even after the water, mud, and sewage is removed, there will still be the job of determining what state the structure of the home is in, what can be salvaged, what must be torn out and replaced, and one of the biggest issues of all, is mold growth.

When all is said and done and your home may look normal again, if there is mold growing somewhere in it, it is not said and done. Mold in the home is hazardous to the health of you, your family, and pets. It must be removed and killed entirely after a home flood or it will still not be safe for your family to return. A true water damage specialist will know how to deal with all the aspects of flooding as quickly as possible and not just removing the water.
