The disaster response team from Disaster Pros is preparing for an extremely busy week helping property owners recover from the severe weather that has been plaguing much of the Midwest this April. The latest batch of weather has the potential to create flash flooding conditions, and dozens of counties in Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin were already posting flood warnings for their residents. Disaster Pros specializes in water damage restoration, the process of removing water and drying properties that have been victimized by flood damage. With a large team of IICRC certified technicians, the company was busy coordinating response teams from several regions to assist with any flooding that may occur in this area.
Property flooding caused by storms can create a number of problems for homeowners and business owners alike. The most susceptible area that is prone to flooding are basements and crawl spaces. One of the best tools to help prevent these below grade areas from flooding is the installation and use of a sump pump, which helps to remove water from a basement foundation and send it through a drainage system. Most basement floods are caused by a failed sump pump or a sewer line back up, and the team from Disaster Pros can help coordinate repairs or drain clean out if this is determined as the primary cause that led to the flood damages.
In addition to helping restore basements from flood damages, Disaster Pros has extensive experience with repairing commercial properties that have been impacted by flooding, both from storms and other unforeseen disasters. Using specialized desiccant drying systems, the company can quickly dry down large commercial properties over 100,000 square feet in size to help prevent the potential for mold or other lingering moisture issues which often occur following a flood when a structure is not properly dried and sanitized.
