Cleaning up your basement after a big flood is a 5 step process that takes a lot of work. It is hard to tell what will happen to your home in a huge storm. Some of the time you can be lucky, and some of the time you could end up with a really big flood that does a lot of damage to your home.
- Before you dip your foot into that flood, be sure that the water isn’t conducting any loose electrical current.
- You’ll need to document everything from personal items to furniture, fixtures and walls as well as take pictures of every bit of damage.
- The professionals will remove, dry and store your property while your basement is being repaired including restoring your photos, memorabilia and furniture as much as they possibly can.
“Flooding and the resulting property damage is nothing to look forward to, but having a plan of action ready in case disaster strikes will go a long way in easing the pain.”
