As with any place you purchase a home, it is usually the largest investment you will make in your life so you want to ensure that your home will last for many years to come.

Dangers left behind by Standing Water.
If you know a rain storm is coming and possibly floods due to a hurricane that is going to hit the eastern coast, everyone begins doing what they can to save their homes and businesses such as using sand bags and even boarding up windows. The main problem is that if your home is not spared and water enters your home, you may have a sump pump that removes the water that is in the lower levels of your home. Now, when you enter your home you can see just how high the water rose in the home. There is even a worse problem, which is that you may not actually see all the damage that has been left behind. If water stands against the exterior of the home, it can actually cause the dirt under the foundation to move which will allow cracks in the foundation.
The problem is we may not see the bacteria, mold, and other fungi that are in cracks, crevices, and behind walls in the areas where the water stayed for even just one day. Mold and bacteria love damp environments and grow very quickly in every crack they can find.

Not only are these professionals experienced at removing water and removing fungi, mold and bacteria, but also will work to save as much of your personal property as possible. The team lives in the area and certainly understands what it is like to find personal belongings under water.
