Common Damages Seen After Flood Damage in Carmel Homes
When SERVPRO cleans up and restores a home from flood damage in this area of New York, each job site is unique. However, there are common damages left behind, in some cases are preventable by taking action before we arrive.
One of the first things a Carmel homeowner with flood damage can do before help arrives is to prevent staining on a carpet affected by water. Printed materials and the stain on wood furnishings are two frequent culprits of this type of carpet discoloration. Other helpful actions to take include:
- Blotting up water if possible
- Picking up small objects from the floor and setting them aside for inspection and cleaning
- Putting foil or plastic under furniture legs to get them off the wet carpet
Why SERVPRO? You do not want to hand off the mitigation of water damage anything less than a certified, professional restoration company. Our technicians undergo extensive training in a diverse array of cleaning and repair technicians to ensure the best outcome for every type of home disaster we work on.
SERVPRO technicians spend extra time on the water extraction step because it lessens the amount of time needed to dry a property thoroughly. We most often rely on portable pumps and utilize attachments such as weighted extractor heads to pull embedded moisture from within carpet padding or upholstered furnishings.
Another concern many homeowners have during flood damage restoration is they have no control over what is happening in their home. Our technicians do not discard any items without prior approval of the homeowner or adjuster, and we are careful to work within the scope of coverage, so there are no surprise charges.
Mold is always a concern after water damage. We take steps to be certain spores do not germinate by controlling the interior humidity levels and using our proprietary antimicrobial cleaners after drying.
When your home has water damage, contact SERVPRO of Putnam County at (845) 228-1090. Our emergency response team is ready 24/7 to clean up your property and make the water loss "Like it never even happened."
