Ways That Help Minimize Flood Damage to Your Dunkirk Home
Thorough Flood Cleanup in Dunkirk with SERVPRO
Floods can strike in many ways, including hurricane storm surges. Although you might think of flooding from river overflow, surface water from a heavy thunderstorm and clogged storm drains are also considered a flood. As a homeowner, the costs of cleaning up after a flood can be colossal, especially if you do not have flood insurance. Depending on the severity of a flood on your Dunkirk property, it may require expensive repairs. Professionals can help minimize the risk of flood damage if you act early enough.
Commencing flood damage restoration for Dunkirk properties as soon as possible increases the likelihood of successful structural drying efforts, eliminating the necessity for large-scale demolition and reconstruction. When it comes to flood damage restoration, SERVPRO quickly and efficiently dries flooded and water-damaged structures and contents.
Some ways floodwater can damage your home
- Compromise your foundation
- Floor, walls, and ceilings can be impacted
- Damage to your personal belongings
- Electrical systems may be impaired
Flooding from a storm causes both exterior and interior damage to your property. You may experience loose or buckling floors and roof or foundation cracks. Also, you may notice broken or frayed electrical wires in your home, not forgetting your septic tank filters which can become clogged with debris affecting their ability to soak in water.
Quick flood damage restoration
SERVPRO professionals begin the water removal process using a wet/dry vacuum. Our crews go through the damage, viewing your home's contents and determining what can be saved and what cannot be salvaged, like carpets and carpet pads. We also check the humidity levels by utilizing tools such as moisture meters to see if there is hidden moisture in areas where water can cause major damage. Then we bring in high-powered dehumidifiers, commercial-grade air movers, and fans to start the drying process.
