Residential and commercial establishment flooding don’t get as much media coverage as natural distaster flooding, yet there are a few important things that everyone should know about. Clean Earth Restorations, a San Diego restoration company, has put together three important reminders:
- Do not turn power back on with having the electrical system inspected by a licensed electrician. You risk electrocution and fire.
- Do not close windows and doors. You want to ventilate as much as possible, to help the drying process and slow the process of mold onset.
- Do not wait too long to decide whether or not to call in professional remediation — water damage has its own timeline and it won’t do you any favors. In San Diego’s warm weather mold is out of the gate right away. And the longer your building materials remain flooded or damp, the more their structural integrity is compromised. When in doubt, ask for an opinion and a free estimate on remediation.
