Spring Rain Storms Keep Disaster Companies Working 24 Hours a Day

Apr 30

It's springtime, and that means the rain is coming down hard in many parts of the country. And with all that water comes the potential for flooding and water damage.

That's why disaster companies are working around the clock this time of year. We know that when the rains come, there's a good chance we'll be called out to help clean up basements or offices that have been flooded.

Emergency Cleanup Contractors Perform Water Extraction and Structural Drying

We're always prepared for the worst, but we hope that everyone takes the necessary precautions to avoid basement flooding in the first place. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! Your insurance company may cover the disaster cleanup with a basement sump pump endorsement, or if you have a separate insurance policy through Flood Smart.

Home Flooding Disasters Can Be Expensive to Clean in Order to Prevent Mold Growth

However, if disaster does strike and you end up with water damage in the basement or elsewhere in your home or office, it's important to get help quickly. Disaster and emergency cleanup contractors provide water extraction and structural drying to prevent mold growth and ensure that your property is returned to its original condition as soon as possible.

Make Sure Your Restoration Company is Certified via the IICRC

Not all disaster cleanup companies are created equal. When you're searching for a reputable water damage restoration company, be sure to check that they are certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). This certification is the gold standard in the industry and ensures that a company has the proper training and experience to handle your water damage emergency.

You can locate professional restoration companies by searching on Google or contacting your local insurance agent. Other great resources include referrals from Facebook or Nextdoor. So if springtime storms bring water damage disasters, know that you're not alone. With the help of a knowledgeable restoration company, you can get your property back to its original condition in no time!
