Dealing with a Flood: Tips from a Baltimore Water Damage Restoration Expert

Flooding is one of the most devastating disasters a homeowner will ever have to deal with. Of course there is the immediate damage, but then there are also the lingering effects of water damage, which includes mold. And, as many people are discovering following Hurricane Sandy last week, cleanup following a flood can be quite a daunting task.

Dealing with a Flood

  1. Avoid Flood Waters: You have no idea what kinds of bacteria, filth, and debris is floating in flood waters. Because of this, it is safer to avoid flood waters all together.
  2. Turn off Electricity: To be safe, it is a good idea to turn off your power if your home as flooded.
  3. Insurance Claim: Take pictures of any damaged areas and contact your local insurance agent to discuss your options. Unfortunately flooding is not covered in most homeowners policies.
  4. Hire a Water Damage Restoration Company: Water damage restoration, while it looks simple, actually requires a lot of knowhow and specialty tools. So, it is best to leave the restoration of your home to the professionals.
