Flooding brings large scale damage to communities, and must be addressed properly in order to prevent long term problems
Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) January 18, 2014
Restoration Local, one of the leading providers of flood and water restoration in the United States, is offering tips to property owners on what to look for when hiring a food damage restoration professional. Flooding brings large scale damage to communities, and must be addressed properly in order to prevent long term problems.
Flood damage occurs in two stages. There is the initial flooding, which can cause serious damage in a short amount of time. Then there are the problems caused by allowing the floodwaters to remain standing. Water slowly eats away at wood, metal, flooring, drywall…and the longer it is left untreated, the worse the problem will be.
Flood damage restoration is beyond the capabilities of even the handiest homeowner, no matter how well versed they may be with their Craftsman tool kit or shop vac. This type of project is large scale, and requires the services of a professional. Flood damage restoration companies are equipped with the training, tools,, and experience to handle even the largest flooding problems. By offering 24 hour service and same day emergency response, they are able to have a technician on site within the hour, someone who can assess the problem and begin the water damage restoration process.
The sooner the water is removed and the damage repaired, the less likely it is that you will see long term problems such as mold, mildew, or other serious toxins. These settle in after a short period of time and can present very real and serious health hazards.
Restoration Local is one of the leading providers of water damage restoration and mold remediation services in the US, with providers in 30 states, 24/7 availability, and same day emergency service. They are certified by the Clean Trust (IICRC) and Restoration Industry Association (RIA) and a member in good standing with the Better Business Bureau.
