Record breaking rainfall has saturated much of the United States with flooding. In fact, there are 124 locations across the Central US that are currently experiencing minor to major flooding, and that number may continue to rise as severe thunderstorms continue in the Northeast.

Floods cause more damage than any other natural disaster in the United States because they can happen anywhere at any time. If your business has been effected by flooding in the past then you know how important it is to get a restoration company that has been Voted Best Powell Property Damage Restoration company so the damage can be fixed as quickly as possible. According to FEMA, everyone lives and works in a flood zone—there is either a high, moderate, or low risk. Even if the risk is low, it is important to take flood warnings seriously as even two feet of rushing water can sweep a car away and as little as two inches of standing water can cause thousands of dollars in damage.
