The Most Important Elements of Flood Damage Remediation in Somerville
Helping the Somerville Community with Flood Damage
The removal of large amounts of water from your home is best left to a professional. Often, flooding the home can create personal health risks. Structures weaken, fabrics can become stained and electrical wiring can become hazardous. We offer an experienced team of restorers who can conduct a professional risk assessment and carry out vital mitigation tasks.
It is essential to use a local service for flood damage in Somerville. Short call-out times can help to reduce the risk of permanent damages occurring from prolonged exposure to moisture. SERVPRO is a local company, but with the benefit of national resources which means we can arrive quickly and mobilize the necessary equipment for substantial scale water removal.
The primary method of removing water is by pumping it out into an open sewer point. SERVPRO deploys these pumps that are powered by gas and can reduce the level of standing water significantly. Afterward, we can move in using water extraction units to dry residual moisture without risking damage to fabrics that may be weaker when wet. Often, the combination of these two types of equipment is enough to get a home back to its natural dry state.
The remaining problems with flood damages tend to be odor related. Water carries microbes that can exacerbate a pre-existing issue or create the unpleasant odor of stagnation. We bring in thermal foggers that vaporize deodorant liquid and can be used either in the affected area or throughout the home for more severe odor issues. We can also treat surfaces with spray-on deodorants to mask odors until they dissipate naturally.
In our line of work, communication is key. SERVPRO has worked with local insurance providers as well as general contractors to ensure that our customers only have to deal with one company throughout service. We can create an inventory of items as well as services carried out for you to pass on to your adjuster and always conduct a walkthrough with you to show you what and where remediation tasks have been done.
Over the years we have refined our restoration service to make it increasingly efficient and professional, contact SERVPRO of West Somerset County at (732) 805-9944 today.
