If you ever experience a flooded area in your home, such as a flooded crawl space, or flooded basement or especially a flooded bathroom, avoid any exposure to the flooded area.  You never know what the water is contaminated with.

Too often we are called to flooded homes, basements, crawl spaces, bathrooms, etc. and the Customer has walked in and tracked the floodwaters in the dry areas of the home.  What does this do?  It contaminates more of the home and causes more damages and clean up to be done.  

You never know what it is floodwaters, you also don't want to expose your skin to unknown floodwaters.  Too often sewage can be part of the floodwaters.  There are many reasons our team suits up, prior to entering any floodwaters.

Bottom line, when you suffer any kind of flood in your home, stay out of the water and call the professionals at SERVPRO of Reno NW/Truckee/Tahoe Vista.  We will get the water cleaned up safely and as quick as possible and ensure that you and your family are not exposed to any contaminated floodwaters.
