No one is ever quite prepared for flood and water damage, even if they’re the type of person who’s prepared for emergencies. What is really unexpected about water damage in the aftermath—how do you start cleaning up the mess, particularly if you still have standing water in your home? Flood damage can be really troublesome, but if you need emergency water and flood cleanup in San Diego, Hometown Restoration is here to help.

Many things can cause floods. Part of the unexpected nature of floods is that homeowners may think they’re safe because they don’t live near water or don’t live in an area that gets heavy rains or hurricanes. While Mother Nature causes many floods, many are also caused by everyday things, such as plumbing issues, septic tank problems, groundwater seepage, and faulty appliances, such as your dishwasher or washing machine. Flooding can be mild or severe, but no job is too big or too small for us, and even a small amount of moisture can be a problem.

Part of the issue is you don’t want mold. Mold grows where there is moisture or wetness, and a prime place for spores to grow is where there is flooding. If you’re unable to dry out after a flood, mold spores can grow, and this can be very hazardous to your health. This is where we can help and prevent your home from becoming a hotbed for mold growth.
