Red Cross Flood Repair: Dry Out Your Home Mobile App

Floodwaters affect a home three ways: The water damages materials. Wallboard will disintegrate if it remains wet too long; wood can swell, warp, or rot; electrical parts can short out, malfunction, and cause fires or shock. Mud, silt, and unknown contaminants in the water not only get everything dirty; they also create a health hazard. Dampness promotes the growth of mildew, a mold or fungus that can grow on everything. The Red Cross Flood Repair: Dry Out Your Home mobile app gives step-by-step advice you can use to clean up, rebuild, and get help after a flood. Your home and its contents may look beyond hope, but many of your belongings can be restored. If you do things right, your flooded home can be cleaned up, dried out, rebuilt, and reoccupied sooner than you think.
