4 Important things to consider during flood restoration.
If you are returning to your Seattle property after a flooding event, be sure to check the following 4 simple things. You may want to consider them in your flood repair budget.
– Mold. You’ll want to get an air quality test to determine if you have elevated mold levels — you won’t necessarily see the mold. You’ll want to know what types of remediation and testing will be required by local jurisdictions.
– Electrical. If outlets, wiring or the circuit panel were under water, they may need to be replaced, even if they appear to be in decent condition. This is something else your local building department can tell you, and they may even create new rules for these recently flooded houses.
– A/C Compressor. If the outdoor A/C unit was under water, it may not work (or at least will need a new motor). So, even if it looks fine, factor in replacing it.
– Duct Cleaning. If you find that mold levels are elevated, budget for getting your HVAC ducts cleaned.
