Getting Mitigation Started Quickly Helps to Protect Your Brooklyn Apartment From Further Flood Destruction

Flooding is a devastating force, as many will not forget the disastrous and destructive remnants of Hurricane Ida. Because these situations happen rapidly, basement-level apartments can be struck the worst by storm damage. We have fast mitigation solutions to help in these situations.

Assessing Safety Concerns and Hazards

Among the first steps our professionals take before other flood damage in Brooklyn apartments can be addressed, we must determine the extent of the damage and what safety hazards exist. Several inches or feet of standing water can create dangerous conditions for residents or our team responding to help. Some of these include:

  • Shock hazards
  • Weakened structural elements
  • Contaminants
  • Sewage
  • Infestations

Water Removal Services for Flooded Apartments

Another mitigation action that we can take as soon as we arrive is removing standing water from this basement apartment. Pooling can be substantial in lower levels at the street grade, so we rely on our most powerful extraction systems like truck-mount water removal tools and stationary trash pumps.

Controlled Demolition Where Necessary

In many situations, heavy flood damage can require controlled demolition to return the property to its original state. With a general contractor license, other companies and services are not needed to accomplish these requirements for your home. We can provide a wealth of build-back resources and controlled demolition steps when necessary.

Homeowners cannot ignore flooding threats. When properties are impacted heavily by these emergencies, you need professional assistance to mitigate loss and return the property to its original condition. Our SERVPRO of Northwest Brooklyn team is ready to help 24/7 at (718) 522-4400.
