How the Greater Charlotte Area Deals With Flooding

The Charlotte, NC area has experienced its fair share of community disasters. As a result, residents should know how to prepare themselves and their homes for a range of events, including dangerous floods.

Rain, hurricanes, and dam failures have led to serious flooding problems in the past. In 2016, FEMA conducted a review of flood risk management activities in Charlotte and determined that it is one of the most prepared cities in the entire nation.

Even with all of the area’s precautions and activities, sometimes water damage is unavoidable. One torrential downpour or overflowing river can lead to wrecked homes and businesses. That’s where Restoration 1 of Greater Charlotte steps in.

With our tried-and-true method of handling flood damage, Restoration 1 tackles the risks and repairs that are caused by a flooding incident. In the event of a flood, here are the first four steps we will take to secure the area and move towards recovery.

  1. Clear away the hazards. Electrical wires, slippery floors, loose furniture, and a variety of other things can be dangerous for residents. That’s why Restoration 1 will immediately look for potential hazards.
  2. Start drying everything out. All windows should be opened and the fans should be turned on. Then, Restoration 1 will bring in heavy-duty equipment (large fans, wet vacuums, and pumps) that will work to air out the area and salvage what isn’t ruined.
  3. Rip up the destroyed floors. Unfortunately, not all carpets and hardwoods can be saved in the event of a flood. Restoration 1 will pull up the ruined areas so that you can make the next step towards repairing your home.
  4. Prevent mold growth. Nasty molds love to grow in moist, dark environments, so Restoration 1 will do everything they can to clean and dehumidify the areas to prevent any ongoing mold problems.

Restoration 1’s certified water damage restoration specialists will be there for every step of the recovery process after a flood and go to great lengths to ensure every family ends up on their feet. To learn more about our services and promises, call Restoration 1 of Greater Charlotte today at (704) 741-7511.
