Flood Damage Ramification

No matter how the flood is caused. Be it with natural flash flooding, a burst pipe, sink overflow, faulty dishwasher, or by any other means, flooding brings a lot of inconveniences. There arises an emergency situation in such a flood damage condition. Following are the ramification of flood damage:

Carpet Damage:

Flooding can obviously damage the carpets as it is the first thing that will come in contact. Flood can make it wet and it takes time to get dry. Carpets are expensive to replace and so it needs to be dried and sanitized before it can be re-used. You need to act quickly and call a professional from your nearby to attend it.

If you leave your carpet wet for a longer time, it could become a breeding ground for mould and mildew which in the long run could rot your carpet. It makes the place non-hygienic and forcing you to replace the carpet. You need to improve your chances of saving your carpet by calling a flood damage cleaning expert.

Structural damage:

If you do not consider flooding as an emergency condition and wait for long hours, then there is a possibility of structural damage. Some properties are more vulnerable to flood depending upon the type of construction. However, there is a way that you can check for few signs that could determine if your property has sustained structural damage because of flooding.

The signs are:

Warped and buckled floorboards

If you find buckled floorboards, it indicates a serious
flood damage that needs to be addressed by an expert immediately.

Swollen and soft drywall

When the moisture levels increase, it damages the drywall. If
you see such a condition, then you need to call the cleaning professional urgently.

Health hazards

Along with carpet and structural damage, there is a risk of the health threat. Flood damage can pose a serious risk to you and your family. The increase in moisture levels and damp conditions that occurs due to flooding could grow mould and mildew. It increases the allergic reactions, nervous and respiratory problems and infections. This could damage your immune systems as spores can settle in the body which could grow and pose the serious health risk.

What should you do during flooding?

When you experience flooding at your home or commercial property, first thing is to identify the cause of flooding. If there is a leakage from a pipe, pipe bursts or anything that relates to a plumber, then you need to call a plumber immediately to stop the flooding.

Immediately turn off electricity mains. Water is the main conductor of electricity and in order to avoid injury and life risk, turn off the electricity at the earliest.

The sooner you get the cleanup, the better your chances of salvaging your household items including carpets. While the professional is on their way to your house or commercial property, you may put all the furniture in a safe place if possible and put some towels to prevent spreading water in a un-affected area.
