Dealing with Flood Water Damage

Updated:
GROVE, OKLAHOMA -

With more rain on the way, many people may have to take the route of using a restoration company should flood waters affect their home. ServiceMaster Restore is a company that specializes in this type of damage.

According to a company spokesman, flooding from rain water can be more dangerous than flooding from a clean water source.
"You don't know what that water traveled over on its way downstream and eventually into your home, so contamination is a real issue" says ServiceMaster Restore's Shannon Duhon.

Duhon also says if you discover damage, report it to professionals as quickly as possible.
"Time is everything in a water loss. The sooner we can get on site, the more damage we can prevent from happening. We can dry the structure quicker," says Duhon.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Quickly cleaning a flooded home can also prevent future health hazards.
"Once it's cleaned up, once it's dried, you remove the threat later on of possible mold damage," says Duhon.
