We Have The State Of The Art Equipment To Restore Your Port Jefferson Home
Rising Instances of Flood Damage in Port Jefferson
Flash flooding after heavy rains in the Port Jefferson area has grown more frequent in recent years. The Village’s drainage infrastructure becomes overwhelmed, forcing rainwater runoff into properties rather than guiding it away. Finding a reliable flood remediation company might be on your agenda the next time extreme weather dumps several inches of rain over a brief period, some of which intrudes into your house. Our highly-qualified team can help.
When flood damage prone sectors of Port Jefferson contend with overland incursions of water your home’s foundation and basement take a beating. Large quantities of water trapped inside the lower levels of your residence require immediate removal to prevent progressive deterioration of structural components. Any furnishings, documents, and other personal possessions stored in your cellar also need specialized attention from skilled content technicians to return to a usable condition.
SERVPRO often recommends a pack-out to streamline the restoration of your home’s contents while also making water removal and structural drying inside your house easier. We create detailed inventories of the items removed with our Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS), tracking articles with lists, digital pictures, and barcoding. Our production facility crews track the evaluation, cleaning, and drying of the packed-out items and store restored items in climate-controlled space until they can be transported back to your home.
At your home, our IICRC-trained technicians assess the structural damage and devise a remediation plan. SERVPRO’s service vehicles stock submersible pumps and water extractors we immediately put into action removing water. Flood waters frequently contain contaminants, everything from sewage backup and lawn or road chemicals to dead animals to mud and sand to salt water from sea surge. Our crews are familiar with appropriate containment techniques and lawful disposal procedures for the Category 2 and 3 (Grey and Black) water.
Once the water exits we move on to structural drying and disinfecting. The SERVPRO crew sets up a perimeter of air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to transfer moisture out of building materials into the warm, dry air where we trap it through evaporation or absorption, gathering it into containers for permanent removal. EPA-registered disinfectants applied throughout the affected areas reduce the possibility of fungal growth and kill residual bacteria and viruses.
