Flood Damage In Your Brooklyn Residence
Restoring a Brooklyn Residence after Flood Damage

Safety Tips for Home Floods
• Move ice and snow before it melts. Is there ice or snow near your home? As winter gets closer to spring, make sure to remove this. Melting ice and snow can seep into your home and exacerbate damage from flooding or storms.
• Test any drainage methods you have. If your basement has a sump pump, make sure it works in the event of a flood.
• Stock up on sandbags. Sandbags, waterproof paint, and weatherstripping can all aid in minimizing the effects of floodwaters in your residence.
• Consult a home inspector. If you are concerned about your home's flood risk but are not sure what warning signs to look for, consult a professional who does know and can educate you on flood prevention that would work for your unique home.
SERVPRO's Dedication to Sanitation
One of the essential aspects of flood damage prevention is disinfection. This is why SERVPRO technicians use EPA-registered, OSHA-approved antimicrobial cleaning solutions to combat stains and residues left behind by flooding and prevent the spread of microbes in your residence.
If your basement has been affected by flooding, tile flooring and cement floors can often be successfully cleaned and restored. Ceramic tiles are generally not damaged by floodwaters. Grout and adhesives affected by floodwaters, however, can lose their effectiveness after enough saturation.
