Flood damage can bring hidden dangers to the home such as mold, risk of electrical shock, and the spread of bacteria.
One of the biggest dangers to your home and family following a flood is often left unseen. Mold can take hold quickly and require professional services to fully and safely remove it from your home.
Your home has a lot of pipes. Even if you're not seeing standing water, these five signs might point to hidden problems.
If a pipe has burst in your home, the first thing you will want to do is shut off your water valve so water does not continue to leak into your home. After the water is shut off, you will need to call in a plumber to repair the pipe. Once this is done, the clean-up process can begin. It is important to properly remove water from your home after a burst pipe to ensure mold does not develop. Here at CCS Cleaning & Restoration, we specialize in water clean-up and mold remediation. Here are the steps we follow to clean up your home after a pipe has burst.

Do not wait to get the damage cleaned up though because both water and smoke damage get significantly worse as time goes by. A flood that could have been handled quickly and dried by the pros, can turn in to structural damage and mold within a few days. Smoke damage that could have been stopped from reaching every corner of the building with the right equipment and know how, will have the time to damage every crevice and leave hard to remove stains and odors if left to air out by only opening windows and putting on a few household fans.
As spring is finally approaching, many homeowners are gearing up for the snow melt and heavy rains. For some homeowners with basements, this means getting wet vacuums and fans that they purchased at their local home improvement store ready for flooded basement cleanup. They are preparing for what has become an every spring occurrence for them—water.
