Flood Damage to Long Island Basement

Flood Damage to Long Island Basement

As a result of severe weather and heavy rain, the water level rose and seeped into the walls and floor of this Patchogue basement. SERVPRO of Medford went to work removing the affected areas, using fans and dehumidifiers to dry out the entire basement.

What is A Flood Cut

What is A Flood Cut

A flood cut is when the water restoration contractor has to cut out the drywall from your property.  The cut is made 12-18 inches above where the flood damage stopped, so that’s why it’s called a flood cut.  It is done so that we can remove the drywall and address any moisture issues behind the actual wall.

Containment barrier used during water damage restoration in Patchogue


SERVPRO of Medford often uses containment barriers when restoring homes after water damage. When we block off an area of a home using professional plastic barriers, we are able to reduce the drying time of that space. In this case, a home had water damage from a refrigerator line leak. We were able to use less equipment and dry out this Patchogue home out faster, saving time and money.

SERVPRO of Medford was mitigating a water damage loss that required fans as well as a dehumidifier.

Dehumidifiers work by extracting water vapor from the air and lower the relative humidity, which in turn increases rate of evaporation. In a water damaged structure, dehumidifiers pull in the moist, humid air and then discharge dry, warm air. The dry air acts like a sponge absorbing moisture from wet materials.
