Property owners need to have a trusted source they can turn to when faced with such large scale devastation.
Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) August 13, 2012
Restoration Local, one of the leading providers of water damage restoration services in the country, is looking to add to its roster of service providers as the 2012 severe weather season continues to be an active one. Record rainfall and flooding have already affected many areas of the country so far this year, and the remainder of the summer and early fall looks to be equally busy.
In 2011, more than 550 people were killed, mostly across the Midwest and Southeast as strong storms lashed the region, producing more than 1600 tornadoes and leaving behind billions in property damage. Home and business owners need to have a trusted source they can turn to when faced with such large scale devastation.
Water damage claims during severe weather season are usually the result of strong storms that pop up locally, causing area flooding as well as damage to roofs and windows. Flash floods are the most dangerous, occurring in a matter of a few minutes and giving virtually no warning to those who may be in their path.
When such damage occurs, it is important that the restoration process begins as soon as possible. Water damage will not improve on its own; quite the contrary, it will get worse over time, continuing to wreak havoc on the property until it is correctly treated and remediated. Long term problems such as mold and mildew may occur if the problem is not promptly treated.
Mold is the single most common side effect of any type of water or storm damage, usually appearing in as little as 72 hours following any sort of water damage or flooding, spreading rapidly, and proving almost impossible to successfully remove. Mold alone can be responsible for a home or business being condemned and torn down, making prompt treatment of the problem a must.
Restoration Local offers 24/7 emergency service, industry certification from the Clean Trust or RIA, and a full range of services from water extraction, drying, carpet cleaning, mold removal, and structural repair and restoration, all designed to return a property to it pre-loss condition. They have openings for service partners across the country, and interested parties may contact them through their website.
