Don’t Let Storms Like Debby Dampen Your Home

Tropical Storm Debby did more than just ruin weekend plans for a backyard barbeque or an afternoon at the pool. The storm, which dumped 12 inches of rain in Alachua County within four days, contributed to record-breaking amounts of rain for the month of June. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued a flood watch for several counties in North Central Florida, including Alachua County, that extends to July 6. 

Hundreds of damages reports have been received for homes in the area, and residents and animals have been helped from flooded homes. Worn roofs have suffered beatings over the past few days and many of them will need help repairing leaking roofs and removing water damage that has accumulated over the past week. What should you do if you find yourself wading through standing water in your home?

Accident Cleaners and Restoration offers water and flood damage repair services to homeowners in Gainesville, High Springs, Alachua, Lake City, Chiefland, Ocala and other surrounding areas. Our experienced water remediation care team can remove the water that’s invaded your home and repair the damage standing water causes. It just isn’t enough to remove water that’s accumulated in your home; you’ll need to dry your walls, flooring, sub-floors and other materials quickly to prevent secondary damage such as mold growth and odor. Even if you remove carpet from a flooded area of your home yourself, mold and mildew can grow in sub-flooring, ducts or walls in your home. 

Proper drying is the key to preventing this secondary damage. Our technicians are certified in water damage restoration and mold remediation, and we have a contractor on staff to ensure any structural issues to your property are addressed. We work from initial discovery to final completion, including repairs

If you find your home up the creek without a paddle, contact a local company that offers water repair services you can trust. Our water and mold removal services will leave you with a clean, dry home and peace of mind. Contact Accident Cleaners and Restoration at (352) 804-3992 for immediate service.
