Flood Water Damage Repair in the Yukon
The effects of flooding can be devastating, especially for buildings. Even with advanced warning, preparation measures can only do so much to prevent extensive damage to your property. Unfortunately, the damage done by floods is typically too serious to ignore, so don’t put off addressing such damage.
If you’ve experienced flooding in the Yukon, you can rely on All Pro Yukon for expert flood water damage repair. We work with residential and commercial property owners.
Many things can cause flooding and the damage it brings. Your area might experience floods for the following reasons:
- Excessive rain
- Sudden temperature increases after snowfall
- Burst dams
- Ice jams that block rivers and cause them to overflow
However, floods don’t have to affect a wide area of land. Your individual property can also experience floods if you have a burst pipe or backed-up drain. Though they won’t carry your home away, these localized floods can be just as destructive as large-scale floods.
Floods cause damage through physical force as well as the presence of water. The force can break up structures and building materials during the flood. On the other hand, the presence of the water can cause continued damage after the currents have subsided. Materials like drywall will crumble when waterlogged, whereas metal and wood will corrode and rot even if a little moisture dwells for too long. This moisture can also cause dangerous mould growth.
At All Pro Yukon, we can help you restore your property to its former glory after a flood. We can pump out standing water and dry any remaining moisture so that it does not continue to cause damage. We will remove and replace damaged materials, as well as clear any mould that has begun to grow. To get started, fill out our contact form.
