Get Pros to Handle Storm Flood Damage in Mill Basin

Storms pose some significant threats to homeowners in the Mid-Atlantic region. They can come in the form of hail that penetrates the roof to gale-force winds that blow against the windows, largely impacting homes. Other problems linked to storms are electrical shorts, flooding, and debris. 

After the storm has passed, you need someone with the resources and industry-defining expertise to restore your property to preloss condition. SERVPRO provides 24/7 emergency response services for storm flood damage in Mill Basin. When the storm has subsided, some of the steps you should take to ensure the safety of your home are:

  • Checking your house for damages.
  • Reviewing and assessing the damages to give us a better idea of how to perform the restoration.
  • Contacting your insurance provider to avoid the heavy costs coming against your finances. 
  • Preventing further damages by boarding up and tarping damaged windows and roofs.

During our restoration process, our SERVPRO team can assess the damage and use moisture detection tools to see how water traveled throughout the structure. We can use self-priming trash pumps to remove the standing water and mud or sand it brought with it. We classify self-priming trash pumps as full trash, semi-trash, or slurry, mainly based on the size of solids the pumps can pass. Slurry pumps can carry water containing mud or sand, semi-trash pumps can pass solids less than 5/8,” and trash pumps can pass solids up to 1¼″.

SERVPRO’s structural cavity drying equipment comes in handy in drying. It helps us blow in blasts of dry air into the affected area, accelerating the rate of evaporation. This, in turn, makes the drying process faster and more efficient.

Flood damage presents a potential for microbial contamination. Our SERVPRO team can use EPA-registered disinfectants to eliminate microbes on non-porous surfaces. We use methods and quantities that allow the solutions to contact all contaminated surfaces.

Speed and efficiency ensure that your house does not sustain more damage and you do not incur high restoration costs. For such a process, contact SERVPRO of Mill Basin, Flatlands, at (718) 381-3271. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
