Columbus OH emergency water extraction company Dry Patrol of Central Columbus warns residents of floods from rain

As the weather persists, we advise checking areas of the home that are prone to leaks, particularly the basement and pipes. It’s after the freeze, that we see pipes bursting and floods worsening.

Central Ohio has seen over 2 inches of rain over the course of the past week, and cold, in some cases, freezing weather is to follow in the coming days. As everyone prepares for New Year’s Eve celebrations, Columbus Ohio emergency water extraction company Dry Patrol of Central Ohio warns homeowners and business owners to also be watching for leaks, frozen pipes, and damage to property.

After extensive rainfall, followed by freezing weather, home and business owners face the thaw. The thaw brings flooded basements, costly property damage, and a heaping load of headaches. Floods, alone, can be extremely detrimental to property, damaging electric appliances and infiltrating areas of the home that can collect mold. If any damage goes untouched or unnoticed, the Columbus OH water extraction company warns residents of the risk of mold. Mold, a fungi that produces toxic spores, results after damp, porous surfaces, such as carpeting, drywall and wood, are exposed to sitting water, especially when a structure is not dried appropriately. Mold can be extremely detrimental to those inhabiting the space, especially to the young and elderly.

Dry Patrol of Central Ohio President Bryan Daughtry comments, “We’ve seen substantial rain, and while we hate to be the bearer of bad news, particularly on New Years, between the rain and the chilly weather there are some residents out there likely to experience some serious flooding. As the weather persists, we advise checking areas of the home that are prone to leaks, particularly the basement and pipes. It’s after the freeze, that we see pipes bursting and floods worsening.”
