What I need to do about Flood Damage?
1. What are the first 3 things I need to do after the authorities let us back in?
- Call your insurance agent or carrier to file a claim and to review available coverage. If you need assistance, Anew will be happy to assist you.
- Try not to touch anything before damage is recorded on film, digital image or videotape.
- Call a licensed restoration specialist to help assess the damage. There should be no charge for this service. The more reputable companies will have the resources to start work immediately.
2. Is it safe to sleep in a house with smoke, sewage, or water damage?
Only if the damage is minor or confined to a small area. Otherwise, the answer is NO.
- Residual smoke and ash contain hazardous particles, such as carcinogens, that can lead to serious illness if inhaled. In commercial structures and older homes, smoke and ash may also contain asbestos particles.
- Standing water or raw sewage may contain dangerous pathogens and bacteria, both airborne and settled, which are extremely dangerous if inhaled.
3. Can I begin the clean up myself?
In the case of a burned structure with soot and ash present - the answer is NO.
If you or your employees do attempt to stem further damage from a water or sewage leak, you must wear PPE (personal protective equipment), including Suit, Mask, Gloves, Respirator, and Boots.
