They Can Hire SERVPRO To Perform Storm Flood Damage Restoration in their Amherst Homes

When a thunderstorm hits, the risk of property damage increases because heavy rains can cause flooding in homes. Storm flood damage is a significant issue that requires a combination of methods to handle it correctly. To restore your residence, you need to contact flood damage cleanup experts like SERVPRO.

Our restorers have the required training and advanced equipment to handle storm flood damage in your Amherst residence. We can remove the floodwater that often contains harmful microorganisms, sand, and pesticides. Our specific flood damage repair services include:

  • Initial inspection
  • Debris removal
  • Floodwater removal
  • Drying by air movement and dehumidification

Initial Inspection

Our SERVPRO technicians can visually inspect your residence and use equipment like thermo-hygrometers to measure the air masses' relative humidity and temperature. These tools also provide our restorers with details like the dew point, vapor pressure, and humidity ratio.

Debris Removal

If there is debris on your property, our SERVPRO crew can use a backhoe loader to remove it. This maneuverable and versatile machine works efficiently in storm-damaged properties cluttered with junk. It is a tractor with a loader-type bucket and can perform different kinds of light-duty material handling and shoveling tasks.

Floodwater Removal

Our SERVPRO team can use self-priming trash pumps to remove the floodwater. We define these pumps as trash, semi-trash, slurry, or full-trash mostly by the kind of solids they can pass. Semi-trash pumps can pass solids that are less than 5/8″, while trash pumps can pass solids that are up to 1¼″. Full trash pumps can pass solids that are over 3″, while slurry pumps can carry fluids loaded with mud or sand.


We can use air movers to expedite evaporation at the surface level and minimize drying time. Air moving equipment produces high-velocity airflow to improve evaporation by introducing airflow at the surface level. Air movers replace the cool, saturated boundary layer with drier, warmer air from dehumidifiers. They also move dry dehumidified air from rooms where dehumidifiers are positioned to other rooms of a property.
