Kansas City saw significant water & flood damage in 2012

Posted by Matt Buchanan

Sadly cities and towns throughout the US experienced flood events this past year, and Kansas City was no different.  Whether it was from the heavy storms in May & September or one-off events, millions of dollars worth of flood damage was caused in 2012.

While we can do everything possible to try and prevent our home or business from getting flooded, there’s only so much that can be done.  Sometimes a perfectly good washing machine decides it’s time to go and causes a basement flood.  Other times a pipe fitting bursts spraying water everywhere.  No matter what the cause, the solution remains the same:

Hire a trusted Kansas City water damage company!  Certified restoration companies are the only ones capable of truly making your home or office dry and safe to be in once again.  What do we mean by that?  Removing water, cleaning up your flood damage property and fully restoring it is an exhaustive process.  It takes specialized equipment, properly trained technicians, and years of experience.  Only a certified water extraction & restoration company has those things necessary to deem your damaged property safe.

And if it’s the case your sewer has back-up causing damage, it’s even more important that you call a certified restoration service.  The reason is simple: raw sewage is a toxic substance that can cause serious illness and in some cases death.  Sewage cleanup must be done by a company with the proper safety equipment and a company trained in the appropriate cleaning, drying & disinfecting techniques to make sure the damaged area is considered safe to inhabit once again.

While we hope 2013 is kinder to the area, you can’t be too prepared.  It’s always a good idea to check weather updates and if you’re in the Missouri River flood zone, here is a resource with frequent updates regarding flooding information.
