Last July, one of the worst thunderstorms to hit the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) in decades dumped 90 millimetres of rain in 90 minutes. The storm drenched basements in Toronto’s west end and caused flooding throughout the GTA, causing tens of millions of dollars worth of damage in a short time.Flood Services Canada, the leading provider of flood cleanup in Toronto, has a few tips for clients so they can avoid flood damage this spring.
And with the especially rainy spring we’ve been experiencing this year, coupled with the extreme weather the GTA “enjoyed” this winter, many homeowners may have experienced flooding due to burst pipes because of the frigid temperatures Toronto experienced. As the top provider of flood cleanup in Toronto and the surrounding regions, we recommend booking now if your home has experienced any damage due to flooding, since this spring promises to be a busy time for us.
We recommend having a flood cleanup service in Toronto visit your home immediately following a flood. Waiting to clean up can lead to a number of issues, such as damaged carpet and flooring, warped floorboards, and worst of all, mould! If anyone in your family suffers from any respiratory ailments, such as asthma or allergies, mould can have a detrimental effect on their health with the young and elderly being more susceptible. That’s why you should call us immediately if your home experienced any flooding this spring or during the winter.
Among the services we offer are water removal and wet carpet drying. At Flood Services Canada, we recognize that replacing your carpet is costly, so our service will thoroughly dry your carpet so it’s as good as new. Odourmay also be an issue following flooding; that’s why we offer odour control to clear up any unpleasant smells that may have developed as part of our flood cleanup in Toronto.
Flooding can also cause extensive damage to the structure of your home; that’s why we offer dehumidification and structure drying as part of our flood cleanup in Toronto. If your furniture, electronics, or important documents got damaged in a flood, we also offer drying services so you won’t have to spend your hard-earned dollars replacing any items that got wet.
But those are just a few of the services we offer for flood cleanup in Toronto. Flood Services Canada offers a full range of flood cleanup services to both residential and commercial clients.
