They Can Hire SERVPRO Restorers in Syosset to Handle the Storm Flood Damage in their Properties.

Dealing with flood damage after a storm can be traumatic to any property owner in Syosset. If the flooding takes place during the night, you might not know where to begin. Thankfully, SERVPRO technicians are always available to respond to your emergency call, including in the middle of the night.

What happens after flooding occurs in a home?

Flood damage in your Syosset residence can start soon after floodwaters find their way into the property. If left unattended for more than 24 hours, it may cause damages such as:

  • Sagging and disintegrating of drywall.
  • Swelling and wrapping of wooden surfaces such as shelves and hardwood floors
  • Shorting out of your electrical systems causing shock and fire hazards.

Why should I handle flood damage immediately?

Standing flood water in or outside your home creates a suitable environment for pests such as mosquitoes and flies. The water can also promote mold growth, which can cause health effects for your family. The longer the water sits in your home, the more expensive and difficult it is to clean up the damage.

What do you do to avoid mold growth?

At SERVPRO, we have state-of-the-art equipment and tools that help us speed up the drying process. We begin by removing the standing water as part of the water extraction service. We can use several self-priming trash pumps to remove the floodwater depending on the intensity of the damage. The diesel-powered machine can pass solids that flood water collects and 10,000 to 60,000 gallons of water per hour.

How can you dry my home?

We can use drying equipment such as air movers, dehumidifiers, and ventilating box fans to dry your property faster. Our team can also activate site assets such as whole-house fans, ceiling fans, and exhaust vents to allow for faster drying. We monitor the drying process closely to meet the drying goals.

How can you remove the odor in my home?

Odors can affect the comfort levels in your home. Even after cleaning and drying the affected surfaces thoroughly, the odor can persist. We can use air filtration devices to extract airborne particles in your residence. The (HEPA) High-efficiency particulate air filters also capture large contaminants and debris and exhaust clean, fresh air back into the affected property.

Flood damage does not have to interrupt your way of life for long. Contact SERVPRO of Hicksville / Plainview at (516) 733-1800 for fast and effective restoration. “Like it never even happened.”
