Get Help With Flood Cleanup in Your Forest Hills Home

Flash flooding can occur quickly after a torrential downpour in Forest Hills, and the water can end up in your home. After such an incident, you need to call experts in flood damage cleanup to prevent additional destruction and like mold infestation, which is not visible immediately.

At SERVPRO, we consider flooding as a critical emergency and respond quickly with our 24 hours, 7-day emergency relief services. Our competent technicians can help you perform flood cleanup in your Forest Hills home quickly. We are experts at cleaning up and drying flood-damaged properties. We have certifications from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), and we follow its standards in all restoration jobs.

Our team can manage all aspects of flood damage clean up, including rebuilding the affected areas. Our crew can examine your home to determine the severity of the damage. We can then carefully map out the water extraction, drying, cleaning, and restoration processes that your home needs. We can also provide your insurance firm with restoration outlines to support your claim. Through our Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS), we can provide a precise list of your ruined belongings.

The presence of floodwater in a home usually promotes and sustains microbial growth. The main steps our team takes in remediation include:

    •    Drying the environment to remove moisture and reduce humidity levels
    •    Removing contaminated materials

Our team can remove as much of the floodwater as possible quickly using advanced extractors. Removing the water reduces secondary damage and the drying time required to bring a building and its contents to an equilibrium moisture content. Drying your home thoroughly after a flooding incident is also vital. We can use advanced drying systems to dry beams, walls, joists, and other structures that require industrial-strength drying.

Floodwater often contains microbial contaminants that can affect your health. Our SERVPRO team can use environmentally-friendly antimicrobial treatments to kill microbes or stop their growth.  The floodwater can also leave unpleasant odors in your residence. Our team can use odor counteracting beads to eliminate the smells. These products are made of a specially treated porous material that is permeated with solvent-based counteractants. After restorers open the package of beads, the volatile odor counteractants are released and migrate on air currents.  They give off pleasant scents that freshen up the areas we are treating.

After floodwaters enter your property, call SERVPRO of Forest Hills / Ridgewood at (718) 381-3702 for help. Our restoration specialists can provide you with timely flood cleanup services. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
