Flooded Basement – Patchogue, NY
A basement can flood or have severe water damage at any time in any weather, although flooding can be very costly and most often occurs during heavy rainfall or when heavy snow melts rapidly.
Floodwaters are classified as black, which is a technical term signifying high levels of contamination. Any porous materials affected by such water retain traces of the contaminants even after the flood water is extracted. Our SERVPRO technicians wear the necessary PPE, Personal Protective Equipment, including rubber gloves and boots. We also spray EPA-registered disinfectant in the affected areas. We remove any porous materials whether it is carpets, fabrics, insulation or wood to avoid the risks of contamination.
