THE CALM AFTER THE STORM
It's a bit of a paradox to suggest there's calm after any sort of disaster.
Flash floods, fires, and other sorts of unexpected damage only add more problems after the "storm" has passed.
After The Flood, More Stress!
In the case of flooding, not only is extracting the standing water an issue, a householder must also clean and disinfect the wet area so that no contaminated floodwater soils the furnishings.
Finally, the householder must extract all of the leftover moisture in the furnishings and preferably dry the area with some form of heat or wind. Failure to completely dry the area after cleaning (or worse yet failure to remove the contaminated water) can result in serious health risks including toxic mold development.
Fires are likewise destructive. Not only can fires burn furnishings to a crisp and endanger the occupants' lives, even cleaning up after a fire after it's been put out can be an unnerving experience. Residue from fire hoses and fire extinguishers must likewise be dried and cleaned. Fires can be started from a very small ignition whether indoor or outdoors and can spread quickly to your throughout your house.
Losing Everything And More
It is not uncommon for a person to lose virtually everything of material worth after fire or water damage has been done. Because upholstery is so susceptible to mold, it is usually recommended that contaminated furniture and carpets be discarded.
Walls and ceiling tiles may become rotted due to mildew and have to be replaced. Last but not least, items of sentimental and personal value could be lost in a fire or flood and are often considered irreplaceable.
Restoration, Remodeling and Repairs
However, all of these cases are worst-case scenarios. Though replacing walls and ceiling tile may be too much for the typical resident, there are restoration, repair and remodeling companies that offer their services in the aftermath of accidents and disasters. When hiring a professional, be sure they are experienced in water or fire damage restoration, and in cleaning up mold if that is an issue.
Hiring a professional to restore your home and furnishings might cost a little bit of money, but it will truly bring you calm after the storm.
