Storms Can Often Foretell Local Flooding

After a flooding event in Brooklyn, we restore both houses and the personal belongings of our customer's family. SERVPRO® helps retrieve and restore special items to decrease the disaster's effects.

Flood damage within your Brooklyn property changes everything. Our approach speeds up recovery and the return to your family's routines. Constant communication between our team and your family makes targeted restoration faster, safer, and more efficient. We need your input to determine which items are most important to you and deserve our attention first.

While certain team members work on restoring and repairing the first of your home's contents, our IICRC-certified flood damage restoration team handles other tasks. Such tasks mitigate many kinds of damage related to flooding and include:

  • Moving large items to higher places inside your home and
  • Boxing up and transporting items to our facility.

Lower levels in your home often contain shelves and places where you may have placed things in anticipation of the flood. Doing this avoids water damage with these items, but placing things higher can decrease damage from humidity. Flooding significantly increases humidity levels inside a home. Such increases remain after the waters recede, promoting mold and other secondary damages.

Two situations where SERVPRO packs items to take to our facility are when a house runs out of space or when the dampness becomes too intense. As we prepare items for the move, we inventory everything and provide you with a copy. Once at our facility, we store undamaged items without unboxing anything. We unbox the items that sustained water damage and start the restoration process. Minor cleaning, removal of soiling, drying out, and other treatments preserve and restore your family's belongings.

After a flood or any other water that invades your home, call SERVPRO of Mill Basin, Flatlands, at (718) 381-3271. We can protect your house and everything within.
