Summer Storms Can Cause Flood Damage To Your Amityville Home
Significant Amityville Flood Damage Possible During Summer Storms
Now more than ever, residents of coastal areas like those living in Amityville risk flooding of lower levels during summer storms. Sea levels are on the rise around Long Island, increasing the possibility that heavy rain and high winds might combine with storm surge to damage homes. Flooding recovery involves many tasks completed most successfully by professionals with the training and specialized equipment to get the job done fast.
When homeowners in Amityville struggle with flood damage in basements, crawl spaces, or other lower levels in their dwellings, reliable remediation services are critically needed. We invest in the people and the heavy-duty equipment necessary to return homes in our community to preloss condition. Our technicians complete rigorous training sponsored by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Reconstruction Certification (IICRC), mastering reconstruction industry best practices in water categorization, containment, and removal as well as structural drying and disinfection. The equipment we employ is state-of-the-art, able to manage large water losses rapidly and thoroughly.
When extreme weather hits your home, water can flood the interior from many sources. Winds and falling trees and structures rip off or crush roofing materials, break windows, and tear away siding, allowing rain to intrude. Flash flooding pushes rainwater across pavement and ground, picking up dirt, chemicals, and human and animal waste. The contaminated water then rushes and seeps in through cracks and porous foundations. The Atlantic Ocean’s waters add to the mix during storm surges, adding highly corrosive salts, minerals, and dangerous debris to flood waters. SERVPRO crews are prepared to help you recover from this amalgam of hazardous substances.
SERVPRO’s experienced project manager assesses the flood damage and devises a plan to remove the contaminated water safely, clean and disinfect surfaces, and dry out the affected spaces. Our technicians put the plan into action immediately as our service vehicles always stock the equipment needed to contain and remove flood waters and dry out the structure. If salt water is a concern, our team employs appropriate flushing procedure to prevent accelerated defibration of wood, rusting of metal, and breakdown of concrete and cinder blocks.
