What To Do When Your Home Floods

Water Damage Restoration by Paul Davis of Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) – With the excessive amount of rain the county and city received last night, many woke up to flooded areas in their homes and businesses.

Some people are now cleaning up or calling professional help to assess the damage.

John Simms, Owner of Paul Davis Restoration & Remodeling of Bowling Green, KY said “late last night, we started getting several calls. Unfortunately, the rain was still coming in so we weren’t able to get ahead of Mother Nature, and we had to pause until early this morning.”

He also added, “we were able to respond and do some progress as far as getting rid of the water, and be able to put in the drying equipment and make a difference in as far as stabilizing the situation in the home.”

So if your basement becomes flooded, Simms said “because this is a groundwater situation, they need to be aware that there could be contaminants in the water. So it is best for them to contact a professional to assist with the damage. This can be handled properly with antimicrobials, and making sure things are dry, so we don’t have a mold problem down the road.”
