"BELFOR's commitment is to restore normalcy in our clients' lives as soon as possible," explains Rusty Amarante, CR, BELFOR Director of Operations, "especially after a catastrophic event such as Tropical Storm Debby which affected several cities."
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) offers the following tips on recovery after a flood:
- Use extreme caution when entering buildings as there may be hidden damage
- Avoid floodwater as it may be contaminated by chemicals or raw sewage
- Turn off the electricity at the main power source even if the power is off in your community
- Record the damage in your home or facility to support your insurance claim
If not promptly and properly dealt with, water damage can cause major interruption to operations, posing a serious threat to contents, building components and the health of occupants. The harmful effects of flood water damage are sharply reduced by prompt and effective intervention, especially within the first 24-48 hours.
