Safety Counts Before Storm Water Cleanup Procedures in Mahopac
SERVPRO Secures Your Mahopac Property During Water Damage Restoration
Before any stormwater cleanup procedures can start, the structure must be secured first. It is important for the restoration team's safety and guarantees the safety of the owner and other occupants. We perform a general assessment of the building to determine its stability.
When our SERVPRO technicians assess your Mahopac property during water damage mitigation, we check the extent of structural damage and identify possible risks caused by the storm. We check for situations such as broken windows, weakened floors, loose ceilings, and possible electrocution. Once identified, we perform the following activities to prevent the possibility of accidents happening:
- Switching off electrical power
- Putting up barriers to prevent the spread of contamination
- Posting warning signs
- Removing floating carpets
- Covering the tack strips
Stormwater can carry a lot of debris, such as mud, branches, leaves, and other sediments. Our SERVPRO technicians use shovels, brooms, and rakes to remove the dirt. If the area under contamination is so large, we can use more powerful tools like heavy-duty street sweepers and leaf blowers during water damage cleanup.
We have a clear plan for handling and disposing of the materials and contaminants that are removed from the site. Usually, we follow local waste management regulations for proper waste disposal. Working with licensed restoration technicians during stormwater cleaning is important since professional skills are needed for proper water extraction, disinfection, structural drying, and elimination of potential risks.
At SERVPRO of Putnam County, we have the experience, expertise, and equipment necessary to handle all aspects of stormwater cleaning and restoration. We are available 24/7 to respond to any emergency and ensure your property is returned to its former state within the shortest time possible.
