How Do I Remove Floodwater from My Home?
Call SERVPRO Water Restoration Teams to Clear Your Queens Home of Floodwater
After a major storm, almost every home in Queens is in danger of flooding. Since even a small amount of floodwater can cause thousands of dollars in damage, removing it quickly is very important.
Why do I need SERVPRO to get property?
The equipment our technicians use is more powerful and has more options to remove water. SERVPRO experts also have extensive training to quickly remove flooding in your Queens home without accidentally causing additional damage to the floors underneath the floodwater.
Is that all technicians need to do for my home?
No, removal is just the beginning. Our teams then need to perform the following steps at a minimum:
- Remove contaminants – Floodwater brings in dirt and more which has to be removed for full, residential restoration.
- Dry the home – Technicians next install air movers, fans, and dehumidifiers to force moisture out of surfaces and pull it from the air. These actions reduce the amount of property lost to the flood. For example, all three devices help to pull water out of floorboards so they do not crack or warp.
- Remove damaged property – Carpets are an item that cannot be 100% restored. The only option is to dispose of the carpets immediately and clean the floors underneath with an anti-bacterial agent.
