Flooding Hazards and How We Can Help
What to Look for After Recent Flooding
There are many hazards to look out for after flooding in your Augusta home. You may experience electrical and structural hazards, along with hazardous waste, mold, and hazardous materials. Electrical and Structural hazards may be the most common when experiencing flooding in your Augusta home. Additionally, there may also be trip, slip, and fall hazards due to the number of wet surfaces in your Augusta home or business.
Electrical and Structural Hazards
Pro Tip: Electrical hazards from flooding can cause water to make its way into the wiring system. To protect yourself and your home, make sure all the circuit boxes are turned off to steer clear of shock hazards.
Additionally, structural hazards can mean the foundation is compromised due to the excess water that has now infiltrated your Augusta home. Occasionally, there may also be damage to the gas lines which will then cause gas to slowly leak into the home. In addition to leaking gas lines, there is also potential for there to be water trapped in ceiling pockets causing the ceiling to most likely cave in and fall. These are just a few examples of what can happen after flooding has occurred.
