DISASTER RELEIF AND RECOVERY
DISASTER RELIEF AND RECOVERY
Check to see what disaster relief is available to you under your insurance provisions. In the U.S., we have certainly seen some recent terrible disasters caused by extreme heat as well as flooding. Luckily, they are not so very common, but people who have lived through an earthquake don’t soon forget them.
Flood and fire, building collapse, blizzards and rainstorms, falling trees, wind storms, all these potential disasters, wait for no one. Home or business, large retails spaces covering mall size acreages, churches, and gyms, all kinds of buildings are susceptible to the possibility of some type of disaster, man-made or natural.
And while we shouldn’t walk around constantly worrying about the terrible things that might happen. We buy insurance for disaster relief, make sure our machines, flues, ductwork, pipes, etc., are working and inspected, reinforce our spaces for possible inclement weather. We hire crews to come out and trim our trees and take a walk around the roof to see what state it’s in.
And when your home or business suffers terrible destruction and set-back from a disaster, you need the help of an expert disaster relief and recovery (DRR) crew.
Time Is The Enemy; disaster relief should be available
No matter what type of disaster occurs, a disaster relief and recovery clean-up must happen immediately.
• Water extraction and professional drying interiors, furniture, and all the other spaces and materials in a flooded space take experts in this specific kind of cleaning and drying.
Time is of the essence when cleaning up post a disaster.
What You Don't See Can Harm, Even Kill You
• Mold, moisture, and dirt can accumulate—they even accumulate in a space that has not seen a disaster—that only a pro disaster cleaning team can sufficiently find and completely remove. You might spy a damp spot or two, even work on throwing away a water-logged carpet, but a DR crew knows all about mold remediation and how to dry an interior space, so it is actually dry…and stays that way!
• There are carcinogens, allergens, and other microscopic materials and toxins swirling through the air after a fire or flood, even from falling plaster or asbestos, that an HVAC cleaning crew will know to look for…and clean thoroughly so you can be assured of disease-free breathable air in your space.
