Things to know when a disaster strikes your business or property!
Good things to know when a disaster strikes your business or property:
In most cases you have 24 to 48 hours to clean up the water and get the house dry before mold spores start to grow to dangerous levels. Make a phone call immediately: to SERVPRO of Decatur/Forsyth. When you call the insurance company, you should know what caused the flood, since your policy may not cover all types of flooding.
DRY OUT YOUR HOME
You may think that you can simply clean up the water and be done with the issue. However, if carpeting and the pad underneath was covered in the flood, you may have to discard the carpet. SERVPRO of Decatur/Forsyth will be able to tell you if the carpeting is not salvageable. In some cases, SERVPRO may be able to dry out the carpet and padding. Sheetrock also retains moisture and will mold quickly.
