I visited my uncle’s home the other day and decided to have a look around in their basement. It was a mess due to the rain storm that has occurred the other day. They live in an area that does not have a great sewage system in place and you can probably imagine what took place when it rained heavily. All of the streets were flooded, but so were the basements of most of the people living here. They don’t have the right systems in place to deal with the rain and that caused the problem.
I decided to call a professional for my uncle as that was the best way to go. Since I lived in Orange County, I called the water damage company OCwaterguys. This service helped take care of the water that was just sitting there. It was important to get rid of the sitting water before being able to look deeper into what caused the issue.
We decided to fix the cracks and then tear down the rest of the drywall. This is was important because if the cracks were not taken care of, the house would still fall down after repairs. Just removing the drywall was not enough, so we took care of the cracks first.
P.S. If you ever live in the Miami area, which is notorious for water damage and floods in the surrounding areas and building, be sure to check out Miracle Restoration in Miami since they have the best service, price, and reputation.
