What to Do Immediately After Your Home Goes Through Flood Damage
When there is a heavy downpour, or the snow melts too quickly, especially in a natural disaster-prone region like San Diego, the risk of suffering from flood damage increases exponentially. This literally translates into thousands of dollars’ worth of home damage in the form of destroyed upholstery, wooden furniture, electronics, plumbing equipment, and other household appliances. Quite recently, Hurricane Dolores unleashed its fury and wreaked havoc across the county. There was such an overflow from the San Diego River that aquatic dwellers, such as crawfish, were seen crawling on the roads. The damage was so extensive, it knocked out electricity for almost 3,000 residents, while also overwhelming the drainage pipes and sewer systems in some neighborhoods.
