Excess water, whether from a natural flood or some other domestic source can cause result in great damage and can severely disrupt your life. Water damages all kinds of things including building structures, furniture and fittings as well as personal possessions. Excessive flooding can also render your home uninhabitable.

Flood or water damage can have a number of causes such as natural floods or domestic sources such as frozen pipes, sewer backup, ice and snow, roof leakage, sprinkler systems and also water used to extinguish a fire.  Wherever the water has come from you need to deal with it as soon as possible. The longer the water is allowed to accumulate, infiltrate or stand, the greater the damage and the greater the health risks.

Flood restoration involves a lot of cleanup work as well as decontamination and sanitation. If your home or building is compromised a disaster recovery team may also have to put in place make-shift structures such as board ups, roof tarps and temporary fencing to secure your property.  Once your property is secured the source of the water has to be dealt with and then the water has to be removed. Once the water is removed everything has to be dried, cleaned and sanitized.  It may also be possible for the disaster recovery team to salvage certain items.

Once your home has been cleared of water and properly dried and cleaned the actual home restoration process can begin. This would involve building and construction work such as repairs, replacements and so on. Professional home and flood restoration is the most effective way to get your home back to pre-disaster state and your life back to normal.
