It wouldn’t be a bad concept to have a submersible water pump and perhaps a big store vacuum. The faster that you get the water out of the house, the better.

The house and I were both conserved, and probably my house is flooded my relationship! (Can’t you just see me needing totell my girlfriend I had burned her house down while cooking dinner).

It wasn’t till about 3pm on Wednesday that Cyclone Irene finally was over, and I went around with my husband looking at the damage left behind by Hurricane Irene. From what we might see, there was a lot of tree damage, roof leakages, shingles on the ground, an approximated 7 million dollars in damage was shown us. The Italian restaurant had some water damage on the ceiling that may need a long time to fix.

If you feel that your water damage is too serious, you can call a specialist to check the damage and see if the structure or foundation of the home has actually been compromised. A broken foundation can cause more serious problems, eventually. You’ll need to take care of it previous to any needed mold and water damage repair if this is an issue.

Move every product of furniture and all items that are immersed in the water. Place them in a location to dry and after you can assess whether you were able tosave water leaking from ceiling the objects or whether they will have to be tossed in the rubbish.

Depending upon the amount of water, you will either need a water or a pump drawing vacuum. Keep in mind that carpets etc will have soaked up water, the water drawing vacuum needs to be run over them until say goodbye to water appears.
