Flooded Basement in Wyomissing, PA
The Wyomissing area is no stranger to floods, whether it’s from a thunderstorm in the summer or wacky weather in the winter that quickly turns frozen snow into a melted mess.
Here are some things to consider when your home is flooded, like this one:
Electrical Wires and Gas Lines
Is there any chance the flood reached outlets, electrical wires or gas lines? If so, contact a professional as soon as possible. This is not only dangerous, but will cost more money in the future if left alone.
If you let fresh water sit long enough from a flood damage it can breed bacteria and eventually become grey or black water that is damaging and requires special precautions. Dealing with fresh water damage as soon as possible is imperative.
If the water doesn't destroy your home and belongings, then the mold can. Did you know it only takes 24 hours for mold to appear? Beyond just flooding, mold is one of the most common problems SERVPRO of Wyomissing faces. This is why it’s smart to anticipate the need for mold remediation. If you wait too long, the mold will multiply rapidly and become more and more stubborn. If it turns to black mold, then toxicity in the air will become a serious concern for your property and your health.
