Problems Caused by Flood Damage

Weather-related damages that an Amherst home might suffer range from slight warping of framed screens or missing shingles on a roof to massive flooding throughout the entire house. Various events can cause flooding in our area, but we help many homeowners when they encounter such disastrous circumstances.

Amherst homes can suffer flood damage whenever nearby bodies of water overflow. The Souhegan River can push water along smaller streams, and copious amounts of snow can melt quickly and flow downhill into residential areas.

SERVPRO can help your family, and your home, after any type of flooding event. Flood damage requires a proper and prompt response to prevent the spread of destruction and disease. Our employees receive extensive training that results in attaining IICRC certificates in Water Damage Restoration (WRT) and Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT). These certificates ensure that our technicians know and understand how a flood can affect your residence and the proper mitigation methods to rectify the damage.

No matter where the water came from, we can get it removed and restore your home's dryness once again. Working as a team, we work as quickly as possible to

  • clear your home of debris (pathogens to mud, sand, and silt to more oversized items) 
  • remove materials that we cannot restore (carpets and warped or buckling materials)
  • sanitize your home's surfaces
  • combat the development of odors

We must remove anything that can hold moisture from your home. A damp environment allows microbes to flourish, and this can cause severe problems for your family home. Soil and mud, carpeting, padding, drywall, insulation, and other now-saturated materials, can all create the perfect environment for mold, mildew, bacteria, and other pathogens. Removing these items removes the water and these microorganisms' chance to thrive. Other things, such as broken shards of glass, twisted metal, and broken boards, can pose safety risks.

After we begin restoring the dryness your home requires, we can concentrate on sanitizing your home. Wiping down surfaces, including walls and shelves, and removing caked and dried mud around door frames prepares your home for your return. Deodorizing the living area so you do not experience the dank smell that many floods leave behind helps your family quickly recover from the flooding event and move forward. We aim to help make everything "Like it never even happened."
