DIY Flood Damage Cleanup – Yes or No?

We have had flooding again this year from the combination of high temperatures, and excessive snowpack.  If you are considering doing flood damage clean up yourself, you should reconsider, and hire the professionals at Stutters Disaster Kleenup.  Restoring your home or business back to it’s original condition can present many challenges.  It’s often what you don’t see that can become very costly in the long run.

For instance:

• Flood water can seep into every crack or crevice. If the water is not professionally removed then major problems with mould will appear especially if you live in high humidity areas.
• Health problems can occur while breathing in mould spores. Asthma is one condition that may alert you to look at possible mould growth in your home. Severe headaches and major sinus issues is also related to mould issues.
Mould removal and repairs can be very costly; Stutters Disaster Kleenup will get the job done the first time and save you money.
• Be aware that flood waters can potentially have elevated levels of contamination associated with raw sewage and other hazardous like toxic substances.
• You also run the risk of missing a leaking area where as the next flood or heavy rain will come back and haunt you again, another reason to hire a professional team like Stutters Disaster Kleenup.
• Doing it yourself is not as easy as it looks. Removing water soaked items, ripping out carpets, flooring and replacing it doesn’t seem so hard. Depending on how long the water sat for the sub floors will most likely need replacing. Water damage to a sub floor is something you do not want to miss identifying.
• A few more major do not do it yourself reasons are the dangers of water getting into your walls and damaging your home’s electrical system. Or, water getting into the cement foundation then next winter it could freeze and expand causing it to crack.
