No matter the size of your Lapeer house, items can accumulate over time, and people need more space. If the building lot accommodates it, some homeowners choose to build a separate storage room or add-on to their homes for additional space. Whichever direction you take to create more storage space has the potential for water damage.
Floodwater leads to water damage which can cause permanent damage to your stored items, but also to your property. It’s important to take prevenative measures to ward off water damage, but it may still occur. If it does, you need to take action immediately.
During the building process, make sure the portion of the new building is higher on your property. This will keep water from pooling up against the building and decrease the risk of flooding. If the area is below ground level, talk to your contractors about installing a sump pump and backup power sources.
If a flood warning is announced, immediately gather your emergency supply kit and pay attention to the TV or radio for updates. Sandbags and other water prevention techniques can be utilized to keep water away. However, sometimes there isn’t anything you can do and water damage is going to occur.
After a flood, call Aladdin’s Cleaning for professional water damage restoration as soon as possible. Take pictures of the damage and make sure to keep accurate records throughout the restoration process. After the appropriate steps have been taken, the cleanup process should begin. For safety reasons, the electricity to the entire house should be turned off.
