If any room in your home has flooded, it is important that the water be removed properly. If the water is not removed properly, wood can rot and mold may begin to form. A water removal and restoration company can help you with this process. Here are the steps they follow to completely remove water and prevent mold.
When dealing with a home that is flooded, it is important that you get as much of the water out of the home as possible.
The fascia is the horizontal board that runs along the perimeter of your roof where your gutters are connected. You should regularly check your fascia for signs of water damage. When you notice that a section of your fascia is rotting or water damaged, it is important to replace it as soon as possible. Leaving a section of rotting fascia on your home can put unnecessary stress on your gutters and the rest of your fascia and expose your roof and attic to unwanted animals and bad weather, ultimately resulting in a much bigger repair.
