Life Can Return to Normal with Aggressive Water Damage Restoration by ServiceMaster Specialty Restoration Services in Appleton, Wisconsin

October 21st, 2015 · No Comments

We need only to see the destruction from South Carolina’s flood to refresh our own memories of Appleton, Wisconsin’s flooding from June of this year. We love Lake Winnebago and the Fox River and are happy to live in a lake community, but, by the same token, living in such proximity to water has its own sets of challenges. When there is too much rain and water, ServiceMaster Specialty Restoration Services is here to restore your home from water damage.

It was just this past June 15th that Appleton, WI had its own flooding crisis, serious enough to warrant water damage restoration. Too much rain in too short a time frame will cause floods. Certainly, we remember that it took just two hours or so, but the storm of June 15 left days of mess in its wake.

In light of that storm, the Outagamie County Emergency Management Office offers this advice to you, that these measures be taken in the event of a flood catastrophe:

  • Clean any flooded area quickly to prevent the spread of mold
  • Remove wet drywall and insulation
  • Use fans to help dry out
  • Wash and disinfect everything that has been touched by flood or sewage water

Additionally, the Centers For Disease Control offers some tips for reentering your home after a flooding event:

  • If there is water in your home, but you can turn the power off while not standing in water, then turn your power off. Otherwise, never turn off your power while you are in the water. Always call a professional electrician.
  • If your home has been flooded and closed for several days, presume your home is contaminated with mold and/or sewage.
  • Use fans and dehumidifiers to remove moisture

The task of cleaning your flooded home is daunting. As the homeowner, you could attempt this cleanup on your own, but, water damage restoration should always be handled by professionals.
