Even if you are quick enough to get up the water that you can see, the water you don't see and can't reach are affecting your floors also. If left untreated the floors will begin to warp and "cup". If left untreated for an extended period of time mold and rot will develop causing more damage and costing significantly more to mitigate and repair. It's best to call SERVPRO of West Forsyth County quickly and directly 336-946-1131
Don't forget about the pets
When preparing for a storm be sure to think about your fur babies in the family. Be sure they are wearing a collar with ID Tags or chipped. If you have to evacuate ensure that where you are going accepts pets. include pet meds and food in your emergency grab and go kit.
Evacuating a Flood
When evacuating a flood be careful. There are many hidden dangers that are in and beneath the surface of the water. Contaminants, sewer and storm drains hold an extraordinary amount of bacteria that if allowed into an open wound could lead to infection. Even if you do not have an open wound you could get one by stepping on a sharp object that you can't see under the water. Aggressive insects that have been displaced or other dangerous animals could be in the water as well. This and many other items are things you should consider during Septembers National Preparedness Month.
