After a Flood, Williamsburg Homes Need Fast and Reliable Emergency Services

Local home and business owners are more convinced than ever about the vulnerabilities of their property compared to harsh storms and violent weather systems that could lead to flooding. When stormwater becomes a concern for these properties, experienced SERVPRO technicians on our team are ready to respond quickly to begin the necessary mitigative actions to protect your home and its contents.

Damage Assessment and Containment

Before much of the stormwater removal in Williamsburg homes can begin, we must thoroughly assess the damage that exists and what must be done to protect the structure and your personal belongings. To prevent the situation from worsening, we also implement containment strategies at this stage where possible to keep migrating moisture from impacting new areas of the property while the restoration process begins.

Removing Standing Water in the Basement

The first mitigation step that must be taken when approaching a flooded home or business is to remove the standing water. Depending on the severity of this situation, multiple extraction systems might be required. Wet vacuums are among the most versatile tools in our inventory, though truck-mount extractors and trash pumps offer the fastest removal rates.

Dry Exposed Building Materials 

Many elements become quickly impacted and overwhelmed by stormwater. Any standing water event can allow flooring, wood trim, drywall, carpeting, and furniture to stay exposed for long periods and absorb moisture. While air movers and dehumidifiers are the backbones of the drying process, we also rely on:

  • Positive pressure systems
  • Drying mats
  • Portable electric heaters

Flooding and water damage are inevitable for some homes, but our SERVPRO of Northwest Brooklyn team is ready to make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (718) 522-4400.
