Washington D.C. (PRWEB) July 13, 2012
Intense thunderstorms flooded parts of Washington D.C. between July 10 and July 11, 2012. Water quickly accumulated and most areas received more than two inches of rain, causing cars to stall in the streets. Basements were flooded and catch basins were overwhelmed causing raw sewage to backup and flood homes. Structure Medic, a DC water damage repair service, has trucks stationed through the state to assist homeowners in repairing damage caused by flash flooding.
Stephen Elliott founded Structure Medic and works with a catastrophic relief team. Structure Medic’s employees are skilled and specialize in assisting both homeowners and businesses recover and repair property following severe storms, flooding, sewage backups or fires. Employees are certified and insured by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), a nonprofit certifying body in the disaster restoration industry.
The recent storms were especially damaging to the low-lying neighborhood of Bloomingdale. The problem was intensified by raw sewage that seeped through toilets and flooded basements. Structure Medic is extracting water and removing and disposing damaged carpet and pads. “In the D.C. area, we are using dehumidifiers, air movers and treating everything with microban,” says Elliott. The microban treatment kills bacteria and prevents mold. Elliott readied his expert crews for additional water damage repair in DC area. Structure Medic works closely with insurance companies to resolve issues quickly and cost efficiently. In most cases, a homeowner’s insurance will cover flooding damage and repairs. “In the D.C. area, it’s important to resolve the damage as soon as possible,” Elliott points out, “Delay will cause more damage and could possibly be dangerous to your health.”
