These immediate actions can help to minimize the damage to your structure and its contents and insure that you are safe.
Water Damage Due To Flooding
The first thing you need to do is to move pets and people to a clean, dry, environment. Do not use any food items that have had water exposure. In addition, do not use any electronic devices that have had water exposure until they have been examined. When possible, you should wipe water from the surface of all wood structures, but don’t wash the surface of the wood. If the weather is warm, it’s a good idea to turn on the air conditioning in order to help with the process of drying. If the weather is cold you can alternate between turning on the heat, and opening the windows to increase the drying rate.
It is best to leave water spills to the professionals to clean up and do the structural drying since they have the proper equipment to do so, in order to avoid the growth of mildew and mold, which would increase your damages.
Storm And Wind Damage
Insure that everyone is removed from the damaged property including pets. If damage has occurred to the roof, it is best to cover it with a thick plastic or tarpaulin as long as it is structurally sound enough for you to do so safely. All broken windows should be boarded up. If the structurally integrity of the structure is in question, it is best to wait until professional help arrives.
If the safety of taking any of the above actions seems questionable it is best to await the arrival of an Emergency Restoration Company Atlanta.
