Mitigating Flood Damage in Willimantic
SERVPRO Provides Flood Restoration in Willimantic
Anyone who has listened to the news this summer knows that along with heat spells, much of the country has seen heavy rains, which have turned into flooding conditions. What one minute looks like just an average rain storm can quickly turn into an incident that brings down an inch or two of moisture in a matter of hours. When that much water falls from the sky quickly, the streets get deep with water, and all of the ditches next to the roads can fill up. Once the water outside gets deep, it can be only a matter of time before it starts to enter your home.
Whenever our SERVPRO technicians work on restoring flood damage in Willimantic, we know that the issues created by the storm can be devastating. For example, any moisture that comes into your structure outdoors can be contaminated with harmful bacteria, parasites, and viruses. This means that your porous contents or building materials must be replaced if they get wet. And, if the water entering your home comes from the ground, we take the same steps during the remediation process as we would if you had a sewage backup.
We can conduct the following procedures if your house floods after a severe thunderstorm
- Water Extraction Services
- Water Damage Debris Removal
- Carpet and Pad Removal
- Content Cleaning and Decontamination
- Black Mold Inspections
- Set Up Air Scrubbers
- Applied Structural Drying (ASD)
If the storm caused so much moisture to enter your home that there is more than a couple of inches of standing water, we could use a submersible pump to remove the moisture. We can then cut your drywall a foot or two up from the floor to dry out your wall cavities.
If you ever notice standing water in your house after a flood strikes, call SERVPRO of Norwich and Windham County at (860) 887-0447.
