Utah Water Damage Discusses Recent Job

August 12, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - The Flood Co., a Utah water damage company based in Centerville, recently discussed a job that they have undertaken. The project home was located in Highland, Utah and suffered from water damage due to a frozen hose bib in the basement.

Daryl Olsen, a spokesperson for The Flood Co. says, “There was pretty extensive damage done to the drywall, carpet, baseboards and cabinets. Anytime water is present there is a risk to drywall and other components and a frozen and burst pipe can cause massive damage to these areas.”

Olsen adds that the company provided the homeowner with mitigation and repairs that totaled just over $10,000, which he says is much less than what that damage could have been. He says that had the homeowner not noticed the problem and called in The Flood Co when they did, the damage could have spread to the upper levels of the home and the moisture could have caused mold, which is much more expensive to get rid of once it spreads.

“A lot of homeowners may have mold and not even know it,” Olsen says. “Unfortunately, this is not something that everyone will notice instantly. And, even when water is cleaned up and no longer standing, mold can still grow if those damaged areas are not cleaned properly. This homeowner actually got by with a relatively low cost considering we have seen other companies that have come in and not cleaned the area thoroughly, which has led to massive mold growth and an even more expensive cleanup for the homeowner.”

The Flood Co provides customers in Centerville and the surrounding areas with water removal as well as restoration to floors, walls and other structures. The company employs a team of expert professionals who are ready and standing by to provide mitigation and repairs for homes that are damaged by any number of water issues. Olsen states that they have, over their many years in business, helped homeowners with roof leaks and water damage due to rain as well as burst pipes and other plumbing problems.

Olsen adds that homeowners should be warned that they should never attempt to remove any mold themselves. Mold grows in spores and moving those spores could cause them to be released into the air, which makes mold even more dangerous for those living in the home. Olsen says that whenever there is water damage present, mold is a major concern. In their recent job, the company checked thoroughly for mold, since mold grows where there is moisture.

Olsen adds that many homeowners attempt to wipe away or otherwise remove mold as a means of saving money but reiterates that this is never a good idea. He states that specialized equipment and training is needed in order to ensure that the mold is removed completely and safety so as to avoid any issues with the air in the home.

The Flood Co maintains a blog on their website that outlines the potential dangers of mold growth and of homeowners who attempt to remove that mold by themselves. The company’s blog offers more information about the various services that they provide and outlines a few of their more challenging jobs, giving consumers an idea of the work that they do for their clients.

Those who are interested in learning more can visit The Flood Co on their official website or use the contact form or information on the site to contact the company to schedule a consultation. Olsen says that those who feel that they have water damage or who have noticed a leak in their homes can contact the company and schedule an onsite evaluation where the team will check for water damage, as well as mold growth and inform the homeowner of what needs to be done in order to repair the damage and make the home safe once again. The company’s website also offers reviews from other customers who have used them in the past for water damage and mold removal.

Protests squeezing Hong Kong economy, tourism, leader says

Aug 7, 2020

HONG KONG — Hong Kong's economy is languishing after months of increasingly violent protests, the city's embattled leader Carrie Lam said Tuesday. Lam, addressing reporters after a long weekend of more turmoil, said tourism arrivals were down by half and that hotels and retailers were suffering. Hong Kong's third quarter economic data will definitely be "very bad", said Lam, the semi-autonomous territory's Beijing-backed chief executive said. Lam said she did not have the data with her. But empty streets and tourist attractions are evidence of the fallout from the protests that began in June over a now-shelved extradition bill that...

US priest who gave out gifts in Philippines accused of abuse

Aug 7, 2020

TALUSTUSAN, Philippines — The American priest's voice echoed over the phone line, his sharp Midwestern accent softened over the decades by a gentle Filipino lilt. On the other end, recording the call, was a young man battered by shame but anxious to get the priest to describe exactly what had happened in this little island village. "I should have known better than trying to just have a life," the priest said in the November 2018 call. "Happy days are gone. It's all over." But, the young man later told the Associated Press, those days were happy only for the priest....
