Smart Advice for Cleaning After a Storm

One of the biggest fears for homeowners and renters is the flooding of a property. All of that water coming into a house is scary and it creates an enormous mess of dirty water, sand, and debris. The temptation for many people is to begin the cleanup at once, but here is some better advice: stop for a moment and focus on safety. The aftermath of a storm creates the following hazardous conditions:

  • Contaminated water that contains dangerous substances
  • Shock hazards from wet electrical systems
  • Loose materials that could fall on people
  • Wild animals that could bite or sting

If you are unsure of the safety of your home in Antioch, TN, call for help. Allow the authorities to identify and clear out safety hazards before reentering your property.

Water Damage Cleanup
Any flooding event will likely require the services of an experienced storm remediation team. A team of trained technicians can arrive on-site in a matter of hours and will quickly follow a process that is adaptable to all forms of disasters. It begins with an inspection and assessment of the flood damage and then moves onto a plan of action. Water removal and extraction begins at once, followed by a drying and ventilation process. The next actions include cleaning and sanitizing of all affected surfaces in the home. Depending on the damage, restoration services could include the repair of damaged walls, flooring, and contents.

Storm Restoration and Recovery
A home that is restored according to the highest standards of the cleaning and restoration industry should appear "Like it never even happened." This includes the elimination of odors associated with flooding and the removal of all hazards from the home. An efficient process works to keep expenses low and a restore versus replace philosophy also works to lower costs. A big storm or a heavy flood can be handled by following a few smart steps.
