Sep 23, 2022Mold

As we reach the middle of hurricane season here in Lafayette, Louisiana it is important to know how to handle flooding. Should your house flood during a hurricane, Continuum Restoration will be here to help you every step of the way.

If you are faced with water in your home from a hurricane, here is what you should do.

When possible, stop the source of water from coming in.

Immediately turn off your electricity, only if you can do so without having to walk in water.

Evacuate as soon as you are physically able to.

Contact your home insurance company and document everything.

Once the water has receded, it is time to call the professionals.

Failure to remove all and any excess amount of moisture in your home can have substantial drawbacks not only to the condition of your home, but even to your health. Continuum Restoration is well-trained and experienced in effective water restoration. Our company uses commercially purchased, industrial sized dryers and dehumidifiers to remove all water present in your home.

Attempting to dry your house out alone by merely opening windows and running fans will not address the issues brought on by flooding. Let us here at Continuum Restoration get the job done so that you can focus on your family and getting your life back to normal.
