What To Do In Case Of Water Damage Or Flood Emergency?

22 October, 2015

Floods are the most common types of natural disasters that occur in Canada. Because floods are not as extreme in nature as something like a hurricane or an earthquake, we often don’t consider floods that dangerous or damaging, but nothing could be farther from the truth. No matter the size of flood, whether it was simply after one heavy rainstorm or if it was a flood to the scale of Calgary’s Flood of 2013 or the Red River Flood of 1997, the results can be quite costly, stressful, and even dangerous. Water damage as a result of floods is also the most expensive form of property damage. For example, the aforementioned Calgary Flood of 2013 was estimated to cost around $6 billion when the cost of damage to infrastructure and the number of insurance claims placed was calculated. This made the Calgary Flood the most expensive natural disaster in Canadian history. So what can be done if you experience water damage or a flood emergency?

While there’s a lot that a homeowner can do right after water damage, the help of a professional restoration contractor is highly advised.

24 August, 2015

In case of a flood, immediacy is key – so while it’s important to know what to do in case of a flood, it’s just as important to do it quickly (within the first 24 hours).
