Flood Damage Sydney
Flood damage to your home or business is a devastating experience especially when the damage is extensive. The worst thing about flood damage is the lack of control you have over the situation. Even when you are made aware of a potential flood in advance there is only so much you can do to prepare. Sometimes no amount of sandbags or reinforced levees can stop an onslaught of water. Fortunately there are a variety of ways to deal with flood damage, and in most cases your home or business can be repaired by a professional with expertise in this area.
Our water damage repair company has expertise in the area of repairing flood damage. With extensive flood damage our first step involves removing the standing water from your home. In cases where the flood damage only occurred in your home as oppose to the whole neighbourhood we will also assess the cause of the flood. In many cases minor changes to your drainage system can prevent future flooding. After we assess the damage and remove any standing water we will begin the drying process. We have specialized equipment that will dry the walls and the foundation of your home to prevent the growth of hazardous mould and bacteria.
Contacting us to repair flood damage as soon as possible is important for several reasons. Mould and bacteria can begin to grow in as little as 12-24 hours after water damage occurs. Extracting standing water and starting the drying process is essential to preventing the growth of hazardous moulds. Another important reason to call is for safety reasons. Standing water in a home with electricity is a recipe for disaster. In case of a flood you should turn off you electricity manually if possible or call the city then evacuate immediately.
Allowing the professionals to handle the situation can ensure that no harm comes to you or your family which is the most important thing in a disaster.
