Flood Damage Cleanup in Your Milford Home

2/7/2018 (Permalink)

Heavy rainfall can cause sewer pipes, underground drainage, and street drains to overflow.

You Can Rely on SERVPRO Professionals to Fully Restore Your Home after Flood Damage

Floods can sometimes develop slowly in Milford, allowing you to react. The most common kind of flood, overland flooding, happens when streams or rivers overflow their banks. Heavy rains can also cause water in sewer pipes, underground drainage, or street drains to exceed what they are made to carry normally. Flash floods can also occur, usually after very heavy rains and a levee or dam break. It is more dangerous because of the volume and speed, plus the water is usually filled with rocks and debris.

No matter the reason for flooding in your Milford home, flood damage has to be handled quickly to avoid additional damage being done. It is an overwhelming situation to be dealing with, so it is highly recommended that you allow our professionals at SERVPRO to help you get the water out of your home and dry it back out. We are experienced in flood damage remediation and can get the job done right.

We start a damage review as soon as we get to your property. Before we begin any work, we give you an estimate of the costs of restoration. We then work efficiently and quickly to begin removing the standing water with truck-mounted pumps. By doing this, mold growth is reduced, since this procedure speeds up the drying time.

It may look like your home is dry after massive amounts of water have been removed, but it is not dry yet. We might have to replace carpets, as well, to avoid additional damage to the subflooring. We use air movers, dehumidifiers and fans to speed up the drying process, and we are as thorough as possible to avoid mold growth. Any hidden water in your flooring, walls, or even ceiling is detected with moisture meters, hygrometers, or infrared cameras.

After flood damage, unpleasant odors can linger. We may need to extract these from furniture, upholstery, clothing or other possessions. We also include carpet cushions and carpeting, and clean everything with disinfecting and sanitizing products and treatments. Germs are eliminated with our antimicrobial treatments.

Lastly, we repair or rebuild damaged parts of your home with the help of other specialists we contact to help us.

SERVPRO of Merrimack makes sure to dry and clean your home in Amherst, Milford, or Mt. Vernon thoroughly after flood damage, plus make sure your home is sanitized, cleaned, and repaired if needed. Just give us a call at (603) 262-9293 anytime you need our assistance.
