Know what steps you need to take in case of flood damage.
Sometimes when we least expect it, a disaster can strike. Unfortunately, this almost always occurs right before a major holiday or when your in-laws are coming for a visit! If you have experienced a flood in your Des Moines, Iowa home or place of business, our team here at AdvantaClean of Des Moines Central is able to help you clean up the flood damage.
Oftentimes, the first thing we do when we see flood damage is panic. After all, flood damage doesn’t occur to us often enough for us to practice a response! Instead, when you see a flood, the first thing you need to do is determine the source. Is it something that is coming from inside your home? If that is the case, know where your water shut off valve is and shut the water off. If it is from unusually heavy rains or swelling rivers, you’ll have to take measures to determine whether or not you can stay or need to evacuate.
Next, call AdvantaClean of Des Moines Central. We have 24/7 emergency services available for flood damage victims so that we can take care of your flood damage quickly and immediately to mitigate further damage to the structure.
Finally, we will salvage what can be saved and help you clean up what cannot. Sometimes, carpets, rugs and furniture can be restored and dried in minor flood damage, but in more severe flooding situations, you might want to consider getting rid of these items as they will make perfect homes for mold growth.
