About 40% of all homeowners have experienced a loss from water damage. Not only is it a scary situation, it can also contaminate your air, ruin your walls and damage your possessions.
Water damage may result in structural faults and safety hazards in the home, such as unsound walls and mold growth.
While water damage can be very stressful for homeowners, it is possible to restore your home back to normal with the right steps. As you work with the GCPRO for restoration, it’s important to avoid any health hazards, secondary water damage, and problems with insurance.
Certain mold strains are toxic to humans and pose serious health risks. Most of the time, mold can spread quickly after a water intrusion, so be on guard to avoid any health hazards. For small issues, you can cut out the affected area, bag it, and dispose of it immediately. However, with serious mold infestations, GCPRO Restoration will shut down any airflow to stop contamination and take steps to avoid spreading throughout the home. Oftentimes, mold can appear inside the walls or floors, so it’s important that this inspection is ongoing throughout the restoration.
If your kitchen suffered was doused with clean water, you can proceed with the restoration. If you had a flood event from rain, or a natural dictator disrupted the water delivery, you need to take further precautions. Until your local water company, utility, or public health department declares your water source safe, purify your water, not only for drinking and cooking, but also for washing any part of the body or dishes.
Although your immediate need is to stay safe, you also need to think ahead about submitting your insurance claim. As much as possible, your photos and videos should document structural damage (visible and suspected); standing flood water levels (both inside and outside); and damage to appliances and furniture. Document the condition before moving, removing or discarding anything.
