Earthquake aftermath

If you’ve seen the movie San Andreas, you’ll have a good idea of the extent of damages an earthquake can cause.

There are, however, many things that can be done to mitigate the aftermath damages. Mitigation, though, won’t prevent all damage. When damage occurs from an earthquake, there are a lot of precautions that need to be taken in order for you to protect yourself. Improper cleanup can result in further injuries and even disease. What’s more, earthquake damage can be extremely costly, so it is essential that you go through the proper process to make sure that cleanups are done properly.

Possible Hazards After an Earthquake

Hazards that can be encountered after an earthquake include:

  • Fire
  • Heat stress
  • Hazardous materials
  • Electrical hazards
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Water damage

Dealing with Water Damage

It’s important to respond to water damage and other emergency disasters as quickly as possible. After an earthquake, employ the services of fast, skilled water damage experts who have the right technology to detect areas where mold could have spread as a result of prolonged moisture. Those areas need to be removed before they cause bacterial growth, wood rot and mold.

Salvaging Ruins from Fire Hazards

Fire and smoke damage is not only destructive but extensive restoration may be required in the aftermath. Fire, soot and ash can linger after an earthquake, resulting in respiratory illnesses. Contaminated building materials, insulation, flooring, furniture and walls need to be properly and safely discarded.

What’s more, items can be permanently damaged by the smell of soot, rendering them irrecoverable. So you may require experts with the right technical knowledge to recondition your belongings.
