Dealing With Water Damage In Your Home

Our Story
I remember it just like it was yesterday. The news station had reports of a storm coming to Connecticut. However, we had no idea how serious the storm would be. I remember waking up to no lights, no heat, and a freezer full of food that by the moment was going bad. You see, when had a snow/ice storm in October for the first time. The trees were snapping by the second from the heavy load of snow and ice. Most gas stations had lines around the corner. Most of our family were without power except for my mother. (Due to the electrical wires for her town being underground.) 
I spent many days on her living room floor which as you could imagination was not the best situation. I was thankful though because most people had to stay at hotels, ( which were all booked) local schools and recreational departments to stay warm. I remember working at a nonprofit around that time. Most of my clients were without power so we were allowed to take vacation time off. I remember stopping by my home just to check on it and to get some additional clothes.
I remember going to check out our basement. Seeing how we have a sub pump. (The only problem was we did not have any power for the pump to work. ) I finally went downstairs and to my surprise, the water was above my knees.
I screamed, as I frantically tried to figure out how we were going to get the water out of our basement. Which housed our furnace. I grabbed some gallon buckets and the Mister and I tried to get the water out the best way we could. Until we received some help from our neighbor who came with his portable generator and commercial air blower
This was the first time I ever experienced something like this. I was so scared. I didn't know when the power would be restored. Since most of the state were without power.
After a couple of days, our power was restored. I had tears of joy. Since then, we invested in a generator, now we're looking to invest in an air blower and/or a Dehumidifier.

As a homeowner, investing in the right tools can save you such time and a potential headache down the line. I stumbled across a great site for homeowner and businesses owners. I love that AerIndustries offers products for commercial use and homeowners. I'm looking forward to learning more about their FLEX FX-1 Mini Red air remover since we're in the market to purchase one. 
A major plus AerIndustries offers free ground shipping. I'm sure my shopaholics can relate to purchasing a large item and having to worry about the shipping cost. AerIndustries is definitely a brand that I look forward to referring to my friends and family.
Aer Industries serves the industry professionals with a wide range of commercial equipment dedicated to restoring water-damaged indoor environments to safe and dry conditions. We are master distributors of B-Ari®, BluDri®, Soleaire® and Abatement® products and offer a wide range of air movers, dehumidifiers and scrubbers.
