Reason two why it's important to get flood or water damage fixed immediately is health. Exposure to flood waters brings unknown biological elements into your home. Sewage, trash, mud, feces, dead animals, mold spores, all get widely dispersed during a storm. Always wear rubber gloves and a breathing/dust mask when working in a flood damaged area of the home. By not carefully removing any and all items that may have come in contract with flood waters you are exposing you and your family to potentially deadly germs. When in doubt, throw it out. Any soft goods that cannot be thoroughly cleaned with a 25% bleach solution should be thrown away; this includes mattresses and box springs. Mold spores can develop unseen and cause significant breathing issues long after the flood has passed. Reason three why it's important to get flood or water damage fixed immediately is structure. Water is a powerful force; if it can carve canyons in granite it can damage the structure of your home. All foundations and load bearing walls must be exposed and properly inspected and repaired before anyone can live in the home. It may take no more than a strong gust of wind to shift a home from its footing and cause serious injury or death to the residents. Wood structural supports may appear fine at the moment but without proper air circulation and drying the moisture will remain and cause rot to weaken the structure.

- Be cautious. If you've just become aware of a problem with water in your Montgomery home, there are a few steps you should take. First, if there's a lot of water (such as from flooding), you should turn off your electricity to avoid electrocution. Also, don't use your regular household appliances (such as a vacuum cleaner) to remove water. If the water is contaminated (such as from a sewage line), you and your family should leave the home so that you don't get sick. Finally, if the water is from a leak, try to locate the leak's source and turn off the water to prevent further damage.

To prevent hidden water damage, regularly inspect your home for leaks in the bathroom and kitchen.

Also be on the lookout for soft spots in your walls, which could be a sign of hidden damage.
Wet Carpet in Montgomery Al
A major aspect of water damage restoration is carpet cleaning and decontamination of other forms of flooring after storms and flooding. Some areas of the USA are more susceptible to such conditions than others, but it is important that residents anywhere are aware of the inherent dangers involved with flooding of their homes. In fact, heavy storms can cause back-up of sewage into your home without flooding being involved. Flooding leads to the potential contamination of your home and business premises with human and animal feces and other forms of bacterial contamination. This comes from backed-up drains and sewers, and also from animal droppings. Bacteria multiply rapidly in wet and damp conditions, and it is essential that this pollution is removed and your flooring and furnishings cleaned as soon as possible. Your first act, once the water has been pumped away, is to lift all your contaminated carpets. Hang them on a rope outside and hose then down thoroughly with clean water. If your water service has not yet been restored, there is little you can do until it is.
This is when you should call in a professional that specializes in water damage restoration or carpet cleaning services. In fact, it is wise to call them in immediately, rather than try it yourself. If a carpet is immersed in flood water for 48 hours or more it will be more or less irrecoverable and will likely have to be destroyed. That is because the bacterial infection will be right into the fibers of the pile, and the level of sterilization required would ruin the carpet in any case. Before that you have a chance, as long as the carpet is not foam-backed. Then it would have to be disposed of in any case. A 10% bleach solution can be used to sterilize the carpet, but not if it is made from real wool or nylon. The bleach will discolor these fibers. Do this after hosing it down but before drying it.
