Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

If a flood occurs at your complex

4/8/2020 (Permalink)

If you own an apartment complex, it is wise to hire educated maintenance personnel. You know all the risks that come with owning a complex. You and your management team need to be aware of any possible issues that might arise in any unit, whether it is due to weather, the landscape, or any equipment failure. Untreated leaks cause mold growth and property damage. Residents should all inform management of any issues.

Each unit needs routine maintenance checks on the appliances, HVAC units, and safety accessories. This check is for any visible signs of deterioration. This will help ensure the safety of the surrounding units. Generally, you will want to look out for the sound of running water, funky odors in odd places, low water pressure, mold, and worn down parts on appliances. 

Maintenance on the exterior of the building will be essential in the long run. Any drain that is blocked should be cleared so that there is no flooding if there are heavy rains. Landscaping is also significant to be aware of because tree roots can bust apart pipes. 

If there is a flood in your complex, the most important thing to do is make sure everyone is safe. Check that the elderly are accounted for and that children and pets are taken care of. You should rely on the police and fire department if you are given the option. Work on any necessary arrangements with any residents that need relocation once the storm and flooding have passed.
