Smart, Safe Storm Cleanup Tips For The North Dallas Area
Getting your home back into shape after a big weather disaster may require more than a broom and a mop. Here's a collection of our best cleanup tips for managing the aftermath of a storm in the North Dallas area.
For many people, when a terrible storm hits, it's the aftermath that is the worst. Debris, flood waters, power outages, broken tree limbs, shattered glass, piles of snow— these are all dangerous risks once a hurricane, tornado, or other weather disaster makes its way through a town or community.
Stop a Flood
With a heavy storm comes heavy rains, and inevitably flooding. If waters come into your home, be careful about getting it out. Turn off the power—but only if the water hasn't reached as high as any electrical outlets in the room where the main breaker lives. Otherwise you could be wading into an electrified pond.
Dry Out Your House
Once the storm subsides, hiring a professional service might be your best bet for a thorough cleanup, because they will know how to eradicate water in places you didn't even realize it had seeped.
Stave Off Mold
Even if you think you've gotten all of your goods dried out and cleaned up, dirty and contaminated floodwaters may have already laid the groundwork for mold—not just on the walls, but inside them and in floors and furniture.
