With water/flood disruption, time is most important. Fungi and bacteria will begin developing and flourishing in just 24 hours. The whole building system would continue to permeate with dirty and disgusting smells. Hardwood boards, thanks to warping, would be absolutely destroyed. It can bring bad smells to the building as well.

Take the steps…

  1. (Am I covered?) Call the insurance company.
  2. To start a site cleanup, contact First General Services (or the nearest Reconstruction Company).
  3. If you’re a corporation, email the workers to clarify the situation.
  4. Call essential customers to clarify the delays can occur.

Most importantly…act instantly! For further information, please visit the First General Page if you have any more queries.
