SERVPRO Water Removal Milford, New Hampshire

Leave Traps in Milford Gutters Help Prevent the Need for Water Removal

Bodies of Water in Milford Can Cause Water Damage, Be Prepared

Flooding is a concern for our area of New Hampshire. The Souhegan River does not crest its banks more often than other waterways, but when it does, the results can be disastrous for the community.

Water removal from your Milford home can be an extensive process. That is why SERVPRO also responds to calls for an inspection that helps you prepare your home before the worst can happen. Our inspector also provides a list of steps you can take to protect your home from the next storm before we arrive.

One of the most common means water gets into your residence are the drain gutters which become choked with leaves and other debris before the rainy season starts. Gutters need to be check once a month and then every 2-3 weeks once Autumn arrives, and the leaves begin to fall. Water that doesn't drain properly runs down into the foundation. Ice dams can be prevented with sufficient attic insulation.
Maintaining the drainage system also means keeping it intact. Gutters that have separated from the roof allow water to pour down the side of your home uninterrupted. This flow is the method by which water finds its way into your attic. Reinforcing the gutters and drainpipes is something you can do, or we can handle for you after the inspection.

When the weather is severe enough to overcome preparations, we maintain a 24-hour response team to put your home back together. Training for our technicians meets the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification standards and comprehensive corporate training. Each team maintains an extensive inventory of pumps to remove water regardless of the size of the house. If the power is still knocked out, they also have a series of generators that provide a constant source of electricity as we work to return your home to its original state. With this equipment in place, we complete most gross amounts of water removal in a single day or less.

To ensure elimination of every trace of the water, team members use water extraction wands and other tools as well as dehumidifiers to draw out any remaining moisture. They accomplish this to protect flooring and walls as well as fabrics and other personal property. Extraction also lowers the air moisture content which stops mold growth.

The weather looks good for the next week, so before the next rain causes Birch Brook to rise, call SERVPRO of Merrimack to schedule an inspection to prevent water damage to your home. Contact us at (603) 262-9293 today.
