Dangers of Flood Damage

As most of Multnomah County lays on Columbia and Willamette rivers, the chances of flooding are high. In fact, according to Risk Factor, over 26% of properties are at moderate risk of severe flooding in the next 30 years in the county. 

Floods are at the top of the list when it comes to the most severe types of water damage. There’s no denying it – when thousands of gallons of water hit your home all of a sudden, wreaking havoc on everything in their way, the damage is going to be massive. Many properties just end up completely destroyed.

Not only that but floods also carry a lot of large, heavy, and sharp physical objects with them so the risk of severe injury is there for anyone who comes in contact. 

And lastly, don’t even get us started on the contamination levels. Floodwaters are DIRTY and not only can they hurt you upon impact, but you could end up being exposed to toxic human, industrial, and biological waste.
