The Storm In Dowagiac, MI Is Over: What Happens Now?
For those with damage to their homes, the storm was only the beginning. Now, it has passed and they are left with the aftermath of standing water. Despite what you may think, it’s not just water.
- Water left behind by storms may contain all sorts of contaminated substances such as sewage, bits of debris, and harmful bacteria. This creates the perfect environment for microbial growth if left untreated.
- Water is also a conductor of electricity. Standing water paired with downed power lines could make for a potentially dangerous situation.
- Keep in mind, large amounts of water could become home to animals as well, be sure to stay alert when cleaning up. You never know what you might uncover, hopefully not a snake!
