Every year, floods kill more people than lightning, tornadoes and hurricanes combined. Floods can also wreak havoc on homes and businesses, requiring everything from new drywall and furnishings to completely new structures. If your home or commercial property has been flooded, your first priority is safety. Stay away from the area until government officials say it’s safe to return. When you can go back, take emergency supplies and cash with you. If you can get to a phone, call your insurance company and, if necessary, Able Builders, Inc. Then, you can get started on assessing the damage. Watch every step, because the risk of slips and falls is high. Also, be very cautious around appliances, gas lines and electrical equipment.
