Junk King Orange County – House Cleanout After A Flood

You might need to call our Junk King Orange County – House Cleanout team after a flood or other type of natural disaster. We can get rid of a variety of furniture that’s ruined after a flood like mattresses as well as tables and bookcases.

As a homeowner, a flood can be both damaging and devastating. There are many causes of one of these disasters including burst pipes and heavy rains. A malfunctioning sump pump or sewer that backs up are two other reasons why you might need to clean your house out.

Knowing what to do before we arrive is important. With a few tips about how to prepare for a house cleanout after a flood, everything will go more smoothly.

Safety First
For example, the most important idea to follow after a home disaster of this magnitude is safety first. Before you start worrying about what furniture and other items can be saved, you need to turn the power off.
Being proactive is also a good idea. Wearing protective clothing like gloves and rubber boots can help you to stay safe when you enter your home after a flood. There’s always the possibility the water inside has come into contact with chemicals or sewerage. You want to be protected from that.

Stop Water
After you’ve got those safety tips looked after, you’ll want to stop the water from coming in and causing further damage. You can call your municipality to move any debris that’s clogging up your storm drains. If you have a sump pump and it’s not working properly, you should replace it as quickly as possible.

If you take a quick look at our Junk King Orange County – House Cleanout services, you’ll see that we can remove almost all types of furniture from your home or office. If anything can be recycled or donated, we will send it to the right location.

Drying Out
Drying out your house after a flood is another step you can take after the water is gone. If you’re lucky enough to have power, you can use dehumidifiers to minimize the damage. Don’t forget to call your insurance company and make a claim.

With all of those steps out of the way, you can get in touch with our Junk King Orange County – House Cleanout services by calling or using the tab on our website.
