The month of May has beautiful weather, some even say the best of the year. However, just because snow storms and freezing temperatures are distant memories of bygone seasons, doesn’t mean your house is safe from water-related disaster. Here in Bridgeport, we’re subject to rain, hail, flooding, and thunderstorms. Flash floods are some of the worst types of water damage and are especially dangerous, and you need to be prepared for whenever beautiful Spring takes a turn for the worse. Timing is everything.
The term “flash flood” is used to describe a flood that happens incredibly quickly, usually within six hours of initial rainfall. This can be difficult to prepare for, and even harder to recover from. Water damage caused by flooding can be completely detrimental to the structure of the house immediately: debris below the surface of the sitting water can pose a serious danger to you and your family; damp or wet wires can cause electrocution. However, house floods can also affect long-term harm if the water is not properly extracted and the home repaired promptly. Dirty, stagnant water can cause infections in people or pets; moist carpets can grow mold that is easily respirated. Each house is potentially susceptible to differing water damage hazards, depending on factors such as age, size, and location. Your home is as unique as you are, so you want to be sure whomever you choose to repair it understands they need to treat each job individually. No two jobs are ever the same, but the one thing that is a guarantee is that the faster your house can be cared for, the better. Crossroads Property Rescue can ensure the same level of personal care for every single project.
