Franchise owners help home and property owners recover fast
When disaster strikes, as it did when the worst flooding since 1986 hit the Tulsa area, Oklahoma in May, home and property owners find help and relief from their local Restoration 1 franchise.
According to USA Today, “muddy, stinking floodwaters swamped hundreds of homes in the area, tangling fences with debris and leaving a bathtub ring of red silt on the green grass,” and some homeowners reported the water was as high as two feet.
Floodwater is extremely dangerous for homeowners, as it may contain raw sewage and other dangerous bacteria. In order to make homes and properties safe to live and work in again, owners rely on the expertise of Restoration 1 to fix the problem fast.
This is exactly why FOX-23, the Tulsa-affiliate of the news giant, tapped local Restoration 1 franchise owner Adam Lambert to show exactly what needs to happen directly after a flood.
The news outlet films Lambert as he positions several fans in a home which, “had more than one foot of floodwater in it just days ago.” The fans are there to dry out the home and remove the possibility of mold.
“You could have mold growing or bacteria growing in the walls,” Lambert says. “That would be a problem down the line.”
Lambert said he would need to rip out the flooring and drywall that was touched by the floodwater, and it’s a process that is essential to get right the first time to avoid problems down the road.
“The best thing you can do is to hire an expert in the cleanup process,” says Jackie Delpilar, reporter for FOX-23. “But before you do that, you need to make sure it’s a reputable company.”
Restoration 1, the nation’s fastest-growing restoration franchise, is the trusted provider the Tulsa area will depend on for the next several months. We’re proud of the work Lambert and his team are doing and will continue to do to get that community back on its feet.
