In many cases, the major gripes and concerns after a flood are split down the middle between two factors – worrying about how much damage has been done and fretting about the extensive and thorough cleanup that lies ahead. While promptness in regards to removing water and limiting chances of mildew growth are imperative, it’s also important not to simply rush into this job. In fact, although most homeowners might seem to be qualified for flood damage cleanup on the surface, the truth is it’s a job best left to the professionals.

Reasons Why Flood Damage Cleanup is Not a DIY Job

The last thing many homeowners who experience flooding want to do is spend money on the cleanup, especially because they’ve got expensive contracting and remodeling bills likely awaiting them. In reality though, hiring a pro like our crew at AdvantaClean of the Capital Region for your flood damage cleanup offers great ROI for a number of reasons.

  • Flood Damage Cleanup Promptness and Speed – Crews like ours consist of multiple team members who are on the job even in 24/7 emergency situations. Combined with increased manpower and industrial-sized equipment such as negative air vacuums, blowers, and pumps, a professional service offers crucial speed to the flood damage cleanup.
  • Safety – One thing to remember is that a flooded area is very dangerous. Not only are there risks of electrical shock, but also bacteria, mold, and other toxic substances that are very harmful when breathed in.
  • A Job Done Right – Another great reason to hire a crew like ours is experience and quality. With years of experience in all sorts of flood damage cleanup, you can rest assured that the job will be done right and the water will be fully dispersed with minimal to no trace mold remaining.
  • Insurance – We can help you with professional quotes and diagnoses for insurance purposes, and in many cases, our services themselves can be included in the claim and fully reimbursed.

Flood damage cleanup is something that hopefully very few of our neighbors have to experience over the life of owning their home. Water damage can be bad enough, but there’s no reason to compound it by letting pooling water sit, not doing a thorough cleanup, or worst of all, putting your personal safety at risk. Give us a call at AdvantaClean of the Capital Region for fast service and attention to detail that prepares your home for the next step in the recovery process.
