Natural Disasters Cause Trouble to Homeowners
Every homeowner recognize that storms can cause all kinds of damages to the exterior and interior of our homes, however many just believe that pumping the water out of the basement and doing a bit of clean up is all that is necessary. The truth when talking about outdoor damage is that standing water against the home and then inside in the lower levels of our homes is often the areas that get the worst damage of all. Of course, we can see damage that is on the walls, floors and ceilings and begin cleaning. The problem is that homeowners cannot see the bacteria, mold, and other fungi that are hiding in cracks, crevices, and behind the walls in the areas hit the hardest with standing water.
Most people believe the exterior of the home at least the foundation is safe as soon as the water resides. This is not true at all either. Water standing against the home can cause the earth around the home, which can cause areas to erode as it places undue pressure on the foundation leaving cracks or it can allow mold to grow. It takes a professional company to be able to locate and rid your home of mold and other harmful debris after catastrophes that leave standing water in our homes.
