Professional Help for Park Slope Flood Damage

Extreme weather patterns are more common every year, exposing your Park Slope property to the risk of harm from flooding. When heavy rains and winds cause excess water to flow into your brownstone or condo you need to take fast action. Our well-qualified team of water damage specialists is ready to respond quickly with the skills and equipment required to remediate the damage done by flooding.


Park Slope like many areas of Brooklyn is no stranger to flood damage. The Atlantic Ocean, more precisely Upper Bay, is just blocks to the west with the potential to deliver storm surge if a strong weather system arrives. Flash flooding following torrential rains can make its way into your home, requiring fast action with professional equipment to prevent progressive or permanent damage.

Our SERVPRO crews count many Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) among the ranks, trained in the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) coursework. When we arrive at your flooded home an experienced manager assesses the damage and creates a mitigation plan. Each of our service vehicles packs water removal and structural drying equipment, avoiding any delay as crew members implement the plan.

Pumps take care of water deeper than two inches, and wanded extractors pull moisture out of cracks and crevices. SERVPRO technicians are skilled at measuring moisture levels in porous building materials and employing thermal imaging equipment to locate water that migrated into building cavities. We make use of strategies like flood cuts or holes drilled in mortar joints to release the water and open access to the damp areas so drying techniques work more efficiently.

Flood water is contaminated, mixing with the sea, road chemicals, decaying organic materials, and even sewage. SERVPRO can contain the fouled water, disposing of it as required by local regulation.We use cleansing products and tools to clear away the soiling brought in your home by the Category 3 water and treat affected areas with EPA-registered disinfectants. Once the flooded space is clean and sanitized we set up drying perimeters to reduce the moisture content of your home’s structural components to normal levels. A balance of air movement, temperature, and dehumidification brings back the preloss conditions in a controlled way, ensuring we avoid secondary issues like mold growth.

SERVPRO of Northwest Brooklyn knows how overwhelming flood damage can be, so we prepare our crews with the training and equipment to remediate the scenario fast. Call us at (718) 522-4400 round the clock, 365 days a year.
