Professional Restoration for Flood-Damaged Belongings

In Bay Ridge, even a single inch of floodwater can wreak havoc on homes, potentially inflicting $25,000 in damages. The National Flood Insurance Program's (NFIP) average claim payout for home flood damage is $52,000, and the financial and emotional toll on affected families is significant. However, help is available from a team dedicated to swiftly restoring safety and comfort to your home.

SERVPRO® offers Bay Ridge properties around-the-clock flood damage mitigation, restoration, and rebuilding services. Professional cleanup simplifies the claims process by integrating comprehensive repairs with seamless coordination between homeowners and insurance adjusters, ensuring a smoother recovery after a disaster.

Structural Damage Risks Inherent to Flooding

When flooding occurs in a home, its effects reach much farther than is readily visible.

  • Certain materials, such as carpets and mattresses, often require disposal post-flood to eliminate potential health hazards from contaminants.
  • Similarly, wet drywall can harbor mold, sewage, and bacteria that compromise structural integrity.
  • Flood water damage can also impact electrical systems, posing potential hazards when combined with standing water. Professional intervention is necessary to handle a compromised home electrical system safely.

Flood Damage Mitigation Strategies for Structural Materials

SERVPRO’s restoration approach emphasizes safety and thoroughness at every step of mitigation to remove flood-related water damage.

  • By performing flood cuts 12 to 18 inches above the waterline on affected drywall, technicians can efficiently sanitize and dry wall cavities, often saving wall studs, electrical systems, and plumbing from damage.
  • Temporary access to wall cavities also prevents long-term flood-related issues like wall stud damage and mold growth.
  • Insulation and carpeting affected by floodwater can be removed and replaced with new material during restoration.
