Nothing can prepare you for catastrophic flood damage after a hurricane.
If you evacuated prior to the storm, it is understandable that you are worried and extremely anxious to return and determine the condition of your home. But when you arrive and find that your home has been flooded, safety should be first and foremost on your mind. The best action is to avoid any contact with the water, find a safe place to stay away from flooded roads, call your insurance company, and contact a trustworthy water damage, mold remediation, and restoration professional.company.
Flood damage is not something to handle on your own. The water from a flood after a hurricane is contaminated with harmful bacteria and other microorganisms that are extremely dangerous to the health of people and pets. Water rapidly penetrates building structures, cabinets, furniture, and soft surfaces. The combination of water with high humidity, darkness and poor ventilation under flooring, behind cabinets and building structures provides a perfect breeding ground for toxic black mold. Even if you do not see visible mold immediately, the infestation will rapidly grow and disseminate throughout your home. This is likely the reason why many homeowners who tried to clean up the residual flood water after Irma found themselves sick for weeks. Many were so ill that they required hospitalization.
Even if you believe the property is safe, more than likely it is not safe. This is the type of disaster that requires extensive professional mitigation with demolition, mold remediation and restoration before the property can safely be reoccupied.
