TIFT COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) - Tift County homeowners who experienced flooding are being advised to take certain measures for their health.

It's going to be days before the region dries out after all this rain.

With the possibility of flooding in southwest Georgia, one business, Professionals at Bishop Clean Care, says it's important for homeowners to fix any existing issues.

They say many people don't find out they have problems with their roof or drainage around their homes until after a heavy rain system.

The possible contaminations in floodwaters can also cause many health problems, so it's important to get things checked out immediately.

The cleaning company reminds folks that mold can grow in between the walls and cracks of our home. So it's important to have a professional come check out your home even if you can't see any problems on the surface.
