April Showers bring May flowers and the possibility of flooding to your Iowa City/ Coralville home.
April Showers do bring May flowers but they also bring flooding. Taking precautions can help minimize the damage that occurs at your home. The first thing you need to do is check with your insurance to make sure that you are covered. Coverage options vary depending on the insurance company so it is always a good idea to check and see what is available to you. Second, have your sump pump and chimney checks yearly and make sure your gutters are clean and attached properly. If water does get into your home it needs to be removed quickly and dried out properly so you don’t have mold growth in the future. SERVPRO of Iowa City/ Coralville will respond to the problem and extract the water and start the remediation process to prevent mold growth at all affected levels.
