How Professional Flood Damage Remediation Professionals Protect Your Middletown Home
Don't let stormwater push you around your home, call SERVPRO today.
Springtime brings the rising of the Connecticut River in Middletown, the beautiful waterway capable of causing severe damage to a residential property in the area. Homeowners must take action to ensure that any flood waters that creep into the lower levels of their homes are eliminated appropriately. Merely allowing a seemingly minor incursion of water to drain away over days or weeks can result in severe primary and secondary damage.
When water from the river seeps into your Middletown home, flood damage occurs faster than you might believe. A swift response from our flood mitigation professionals can save both the contents and the structural components of your dwelling. Our crews operate every day of the year because water damage from flooding happens fast and progressively, worsening hour by hour if unresolved. When more than 24 to 48 hours pass mold damage can add to the devastation.
The answer to the flooding challenge is the expertise of our SERVPRO crews. Thoroughly trained by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration (IICRC) to manage water removal and other aspects of flood remediation, our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WDRT) use the restoration industry’s best practices to get standing water and residual moisture out of your home.
Flood waters are by definition contaminated, mixing with everything from sewage and dead animals to landscaping and road chemicals before they enter your home. The SERVPRO crews we send are familiar with containing and lawfully disposing of the polluted water. As we move from evacuating standing water to applied structural drying, expect the addition of advanced equipment like negative pressure air scrubbers to prevent the drift of airborne contaminants into unaffected areas of your home.
If possible, early on during the project SERVPRO considers a pack-out of furnishings and stored contents threatened by the floodwaters. Our team uses a detailed Content Claims Inventory Service (CCIS) to track items we move to our production facility. Specially trained technicians use innovative techniques to clean, dry and restore upholstery, documents and pictures, soft items like decor and stuffed toys, clothing, window treatments, and more.
SERVPRO of Middletown / New Britain invests in the equipment and the trained workforce needed for high-quality flood damage remediation. Call (860) 826-5169 day or night to set up an evaluation intended to return your property to pre-flooding condition.
